Lipsticks and Strong Women

What is the connection between lipsticks and strong women? Think there is none? Well, actually there is–and other women as well.

Today, Writing Strong Women departs from the serious, to the more fun part of being a strong woman, and that is…

You guessed it—lipstick

(Remember, Baubo, the Belly Goddess often drops by for a visit wherever women gather. So—have fun with this today—and you just might want to take it seriously, too! Likely she didn’t wear lipstick, but she was most definitely a strong woman.)

Several years ago, my sister passed me a sheet of paper that compared women’s personalities with the shapes of their tube of lipstick. Since I lost the paper years ago, I decided to surf the web today and see if I could find research on that topic. This is what I found—borrowed from the website at Healthy Happy Love Relationships.

“According to one test, the shape of a woman’s lipstick tip can tell a lot about her personality! Use this chart and see if you fit one of the types described. If nothing else, it is good for some fun.

2. Rounded, smooth tip• Easy going • Peacemaker • Even-tempered • Steady Likable • Generous





3. Sharp-angled tip Opinionated • High-spirited • Dislikes schedules • Selective of friends • Outgoing • Likes attention • Argumentative

Okay, here a photo of my favorite tube of lipstick. What type personality would you guess I have based on the shapes of my tubes–which, if you notice, all take the same shape. What do you think? What shape is yours, and do you think this chart targets your personality?

Lipsticks and Strong Women–we get along just fine!
