Lipstick Psychology: What does your lipstick say about YOU?

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 6 - 2011

I found this little article over on beautypress.com and it made me smile (and dig out all my lipsticks for a bit of self-analysis).  What does the shape of your lipstick tip say about you?

Honestly, if I was having a peek in someone’s makeup bag… found a lipstick, wound it up and saw a tip like #1… I’d move the hell away from the owner.

Me?  I’m a #4 – I just keep ‘em in the shape I buy them! But, I’m nothing like the personality described.  Infact, if you wrote down the opposite of every adjective used to describe a #4-er, you’d get closer to me.  My Nan however, was an absolute #3.  I used to marvel at her perfectly rounded lipsticks… and the description, well it describes her so well it’s a little bit frightening!

What are you – and does the description fit with your personality?

  1. This made me laugh, I was looking at the shape of Em’s lipstick the other day – its very like No 1 but only on one side, but sort of deeply grooved with a long narrow sticky up bit, came to the conclusion it wasn’t because she was an artistic soul, yearing for love whilst needing her independence but because she has very large lips that wear out a deep groove in her lippy! I am like you, a No 4 in lipstick shape but not in any other way – put me in the kitchen and control me at once!

      This was not accurate at all! I always leave the lipstick in the shape i get it but im definately not self confident, creative, the center of attention, or uncontrollable.

    Wow! Two of these mimic my own sticks and both personalities match… er… collide. :)

  4. What the…? with #1??!!!! But I remember seeing a similar shape like that for my girlfriend’s lip balm (chapstick me thinks)….so bizarre!!!

    I’m more of a #4 – but that’s because I have so many lipsticks that I’ve never worn them down to scary shapes before!

    Usually, I’d happily say I’m number 4. However after managing to snap a lipstick right off the bullet yesterday I feel I’m a bit of a lost cause! xxx

  10. My lipstick shape is dead on #4, but my personality description is #5. This whole theory is flawed. :)

    Love this! Cracks me up. But does anyone’s lippie REALLY look like that first or last one? Seems like that’d be difficult to use.

    I am a #4, if I use one long enough to make a dent before going onto the next new thing. What a crock of shiznit the description is though ;) When I was younger my lipsticks used to go like #1, which was a bit odd. I have no idea what I was doing to them.

  22. I’m a Power Woman! Urgh I did actually used to know someone whose lipsticks looked like shape no. 1. So wrong. BTW I swear I saw this exact article (ok, not exact, but basically the same concept!) in a Prima magazine in the mid 90′s!

    lol these are so funny! I’d say my lipsticks look like number 2, but my personality is more like number 4.

    I’m a number 4, I like to keep my lipsticks in that shape and I feel like you have more control over application than any of the others. I’d say I’m more of a control freak than a power woman. I remember being really upset when someone borrowed a lipsticks and after one application had squished it flat- she just started using it like a pencil I was like noooooooooo!

    My grandma was a #3 I used to wonder how she managed it. I dont think she used brushes. I am a 4…with a slight bit of a slant to it.
