We get it, choosing the right lipstick for yourself can be equally fun and stress-inducing. It’s common for makeup brands to release a variety of shades when launching a new lip product, which is amazing (because a girl needs options) but at the same time it makes decision-making all the more difficult. Enter any beauty retailer like Sephora that carries multiple brands, and your dilemma is immediately magnified.
To help you navigate those aisles, we’ve created a guide featuring the perfect lipstick for each and every astrological sign. Take a look at our recommendations below if you’re wondering which lip color best complements your personality. And since you’re here, find out what your signature fragrance is by reading our perfume guide as well.
Traits: Daring, courageous, optimistic.
The Perfect Lip Color for You: Dior Addict Lacquer Plump in “J’adior”, $37 USD.
If you’ve ever been around an Aries, you’ll know just how easy it is to be charmed by her cheerfulness and amiable energy. Bold and passionate in everything she does, the Aries girl needs a statement color to reflect her vivacious personality. Enter Dior Beauty‘s recently released Lacquer Plump in the classic red shade “J’adior.” As part of the ever-growing Dior Addict family, the long-wear lip ink can give your lips that intense, juicy shine. And thanks to the natural-origin hibiscus extract in its formula, the lip product even provides a plumping effect to make your pout look fuller.
Traits: Reliable, practical, sensual.
The Perfect Lip Color for You: Chanel Beauty Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in “Boy,” $37 USD.
Realistic yet romantic at the same time, Taurus should opt for a fuss-free, natural-looking lip color that’s ideal for everyday wear. Make room in your makeup bag for a nude lipstick like Chanel‘s Rogue Coco Shine in the mauve-pink “Boy.” Not only does this lightweight formula offer a sheer tint of color, but it is also packed with moisturizing ingredients that can soften your lips, making them even more kissable than they already are.
Traits: Quick-witted, adaptable, curious.
The Perfect Lip Color for You: Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick in “I Always,” $34 USD.
Every year during Gemini season, we’d see different camps of people debating whether Geminis are genuinely flexible or simply two-faced. Either way, we’ve got to give them credit for their versatility. If you’re a proud Gemini yourself, you’ll probably appreciate Hourglass‘ Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick. We’re a fan of the hot pink shade “I Always” but if you prefer another color, you can simply swap it with another bullet as the lipstick sees a refillable design — quite handy, isn’t it?
Traits: Sensitive, sentimental, caring.
The Perfect Lip Color for You: RODIN Luxury Lipstick in “Billie on the Bike,” $38 USD.

The Perfect Lip Color for You: Milk Makeup Lip Color in “Freshhh,” $22 USD.

This hot pink shade is literally an instant mood booster and will probably gain you some new friends in a party setting or whatnot. The crayon-like shape also makes the product fun and easy to apply.
