Have you ever wondered why you can tell so much about a person just by looking at them?

The choices we make before leaving the house each day can hold much more meaning than we might think.

The way we present ourselves to the world – from the way we dress to the way we shape our eyebrows – can speak volumes about our personalities before we ever even open our mouths.

So it should come as no surprise that the color lipstick a person chooses can reveal a lot about them. While many people make a conscious decision to put on lipstick, it is often the subconscious reason behind the lipstick choice that can be most revealing.

Scroll through this exclusive list below to see what your lipstick color is telling the world about you.

As a person who wears peach lipstick, I was floored by how spot on my results were.

And in case you’ve ever wanted to change the way you are being perceived by others, your shade of lipstick may just be an easy place to start.

What color lipstick do you wear? What does that reveal about your personality? Let us know in the comments.

1. Bright Red

Bright red lips are all about making a bold statement. This color projects a confidence and self-assuredness to the world.

If you subconsciously choose bright red lipstick, you are showing the world that you are a passionate being. You enjoy being admired, and you don’t mind if others see your sensual side.

For those who lack boldness and confidence, red lipstick can help transform you from a quiet wallflower into a more powerful version of yourself.

2. Mauve

While many people interpret the word “mauve” differently, it is generally a lipstick color that is somewhat muted, but contains shades of both violet and gray.

Mauve lipstick is all about quiet control. This color reveals that you aren’t necessarily a flashy person, but you know exactly what you are doing. You are organized and patient. You prefer to plan carefully rather than jump to rash decisions.

You might want to don mauve lipstick if you are trying to subtly convince someone to do something. There is a large amount of power in the color’s simplicity.

3. Subtle Red

Subtle red is all about modesty. A person donning this shade probably prefers being a wallflower rather than the center of attention.

If you reach for a tube of subtle red lipstick, you are telling the world that you are a quieter individual. But that doesn’t mean you are boring. You possess a vast inner life – it may just take others longer to get to see the real you.

You might want to wear this shade on a first date. It sends the signal that the other person is going to have to put in a little extra effort if they really want to get to know you.

4. Peach

Peach lipstick is a shade that lets the world know just how good of a person you are.

This shade reveals that you are a kind and generous individual. You care deeply about your family and friends, and you always have their backs. You are very giving when it comes to your time, energy, and love.

You may want to switch to this color in order to receive kindness from strangers. When others perceive you as a generous person, they will behave similarly in response.

5. Hot Pink

Hot pink lipstick is all about leading an adventurous life.

If you put on this color, it indicates that you aren’t afraid to show the world your wild side. Your favorite word might just be “yes.” You say “yes” to new adventures, new people, new foods, and new experiences. There are very few things that scare you.

If you feel that perhaps you are too stuffy or afraid to take chances, it might just be time to try out hot pink lipstick. The shade certainly can help you to take risks and throw caution to the wind.

6. Wine

Wine-colored lipstick shows that you are all about seduction, in every sense of the word.

You are in no rush to get what you want, preferring to take your time. You enjoy every aspect of life, making you a person who knows how to live in the moment. When it comes to love, you prefer the thrill of the chase over a quick conquest.

This color might be perfect for those who are feeling that their relationship is getting stale. The wine shade may just encourage you to explore your more sensual side.

7. Baby Pink

If you wear baby pink lipstick, you are someone who relishes being adorable.

This shade tells the world that you love things that are cute and cuddly. You like things that are visually pleasing, and you have a fondness for children and little animals. You are happiest when you are with someone who makes you say, “Awww…”

You might want to try baby pink lipstick if you find yourself being too hard or rough around the edges. The shade can help you to project a softer, friendlier side of your personality.

8. Taupe

Taupe lipstick is all about a deeper connection.

If you apply a taupe color to your lips, it generally means that you feel deeply connected with nature, animals, and the world around you. You have no interest in superficial experiences or shallow relationships. You find meaning in everything you see and do.

This color can help if you have a problem being taken seriously. It can project a more grounded, dependable version of yourself to those you meet.

9. Unique Color

Blue, green, yellow, or any other wild lipstick color is all about creativity.

When you put on a unique color, you are showing the world that you have a vivid imagination. You may be introverted or extroverted, but creativity and artistry drive a big portion of your life. You aren’t afraid to think outside the box or be labeled as “different.”

These colors would be extremely helpful for a person who cares too much about what others think. Slap on some blue lipstick for a day and forget about what the world around you has to say – what you think matters most!

10. Black

Black lipstick doesn’t mean you are a negative or evil person, but it does indicate that you have a dark side.

You likely have a dark sense of humor and aren’t easily amused. You find bright colors to be too flashy and attention-grabbing for your taste. You prefer niche movies, indie music, and books written by (or about) rebels.

It really can be fun to explore your darker side. Black lipstick and a dark outfit can go a long way to getting you in touch with some of the more unexpected parts of your personality.

The color of lipstick that you choose can speak volumes about your personality. This list is a fun reminder that your makeup might just be saying more than you think.
