We’re no rookies when it comes to creating a statement lip, but deciphering exactly what statement that may be is another thing entirely. In regards to romantic encounters, different shades can send different signals—some you probably don’t intend. So then, one could argue the color you chose to swipe on before heading out for that first date could be the reason why he never called again, or the reason why he did.
Are you coming across as confusing or closed off? Or is your kisser painting you as playful or sophisticated or bold? Karen Pine, style psychologist and author of Mind What You Wear, The Psychology of Fashion, lent her insight in an interview with Mashable to help decode the messages your pout is putting out there. The phrase ‘read my lips’ has never been used so literally.
From classic red to hot pink, find out what your favorite hue says about you.
“You are sending out emotionally charged signals, wearing a color associated with passion, energy and action. You’re a bold, confident woman and one in her sexual prime.”
“You want to be taken seriously, have nothing to hide and a lot to give. There’s a vulnerability and sensitivity to your approach but with the right partner, you’re willing to bare your soul and wear your heart on your sleeve.”
