What’s your perfect lip color?

by Bionic Beauty on 17.Jun.2009 · 7 comments

Here’s some fun (and helpful) content I spotted on Total Beauty’s website. It’s basically a short quiz that takes into account your personality, skin tone, style and makeup preferences to find your “perfect” lip color.

Here are my results:

Your ideal Vivid Impact Lip Color: Ms. Terious by Max Factor
Some might describe you as demure, but if they really knew you, they’d see the fire within. A die-hard romantic, you prefer to express your emotions through your eyes, and on most occasions, a sultry smokey eye. Keep this mauve-y nude shade, on hand for muted (yet soft and kissable) lips.

Sounds about right for me actually since I usually prefer to wear a smokey eye and subtle lips.

Occasionally, on dramatic nights, I’ll switch it up though. Then I’ll just apply a nearly nude shimmer shadow, black mascara, nude cheeks and my favorite deep lip colors: Doubles lip gloss by Three Custom Color, Captiva lipstick by NARS, Lancome’s Piha Black lip gloss, or Priia’s VooDoo.

Hi! Took the perfect lip color quiz and Failed! It came up with Ms. Understood. It’s just a little too much of what I wore in the Eighties….I don’t think I can pull that off anymore :(

The shade is beautiful!!! And I love Max Factor products. I could do better with a coral color and that is pushing it. I would try the softer shades.

Take care.

Me too! I’m Ms Understood, which the personality description is pretty accurate, the lip color was horrid (sorry if I offended any Barbie violet-pink lipcolor fans). It was definitely not the shade for me. Fun and cute little quiz though.

Yvonne and Heather, That’s too funny that you both got the 80’s pink. I agree with you… not easy to pull off and definitely not a great color for many people. However, if you like a subtle pink- Bobbi Brown has one called Retro Pink. It looks SCARY in the tube, but it’s actually quite sheer. I quite like it.
Another is NARS’s Velvet Matte lip pencil in Roman Holiday. I LOVE that one (here’s some swatches & also topped with Lancome’s Piha Black lip gloss: http://bionic-beauty.com/?s=NARS+Roman+Holiday). :-)

Eyelash Growth, What lip color do you prefer?

I normally wear nudes or the complete opposite- a dark, dark color (like maroons, deep burgundies or even sheer blacks). I love dramatic colors. 😉

Cheers,
Jami

Thanks Jami! Nice tip about the Phia Black lip gloss. Sounds like it’d be perfect to correct some of those pinks that look good in the tube, but not so good on. I’m gonna have to try that. I normally wear warmer colors (raisins, wines, browns) but I like to switch it up with lighter colors too. I just bought a MAC dazzleglass lipgloss called Date Night. It’s a color that could look good on alomst any skin color; kinda pink/purple mix with sparkle. It was more than I usually spend on lip products, but definitely worth it.

I got the Ms Understood too. I actually have a shade that sort of color but it goes on sheer so it is not so OMG I am stuck in the 80’s look. It was a fun quiz tho

Keep this mauve-y nude shade, one of 20 highly pigmented colors, on hand for muted (yet soft and kissable) lips.
