Lipstick is a woman’s best friend and a beauty accessory most of them don’t leave home without.

Even though some choose not to do it on the regular and leave it only for special events, a lipstick makes up the beauty regiment of every woman.

Beauty experts and psychologist are of the school of thought that a woman's choice of lipstick color is not for style purposes only but also a representation of certain traits and characteristics she possesses.

A woman’s lipstick says so much about her personality than most people will care to admit but the choices one makes both consciously and subconsciously reveal so much.

If you have issues with the way you’re perceived in a certain community or the types of men you see, change your lipstick colour.
