17 Mar Beauty Trend News: What Does Your Lipstick Shade Say About You? – New COVERGIRL Report 2015, 2016
Who knew that your lipstick choice could tell so much about you and be a window into your lifestyle habits? COVERGIRL has collaborated with a renowned Harvard psychologist on a groundbreaking study to prove for the first time that different cosmetic combinations impact the way people judge a woman’s attractiveness and personality at both the conscious and unconscious level. And COVERGIRL has extended this first impression research to look specifically at how lipstick color impacts how others perceive us. The research proves a woman can influence how others judge her personality and abilities, and that she can express different aspects of her personality through purposeful lipstick color selection.
