I'm a little bit of an astrology buff. And I know a thing or two about lipstick. Put those things together and what do you get?

A guide to the perfect lipstick according to your zodiac sign!


A natural go-getter, Aries deserves a sharp look that matches their business sense. Go for red. Don't play yourself. You know you want to. 

Try Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink in Pioneer ($8, Target).


 The Aquarius people in your life are most likely unique and bold originals. They're not afraid to get risky with their makeup choices. So buy that blue, baby!

MAC does a heck of a job with blue lipsticks. Check out MAC lipstick in Dreampot ($18.50, MAC Cosmetics).


Cancers need soft, nourishing lip treatments — be it balms or lipsticks. Go easy on the emotional Cancer, and lean towards gentle mauves with conditioning elements. 

Try Covergirl's sensitive and gorgeous Romance Mauve lipstick ($6, Target).


Capricorns are classy, elegant and professional — so go with something a little understated, yet impactful.

Bobbi Brown is the queen of understated elegance. Try Bobbi Brown crushed lipstick in shade Angel ($29, Nordstrom).


Scorpios are nothing if not intense. Every day — and night — is another opportunity for this sign to stand out... so let's get dark.

Channel your inner Elvira with Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink lip color in Protector ($7, Target). 


Gemini is a sign known for its versatility and duality — so why not pick a lipstick that has two layers, much as you yourself do?

Play up your fun, edgy side with a bright, feminine pink. Start with Revlon Matte Balm in Showy ($7, Rite Aid) on the bottom and top it off with Revlon's Super Lustrous lip gloss in Pinkissimo ($6, Rite Aid).


Libra is a sign all about understanding and balance. Because you're such a stable and self-assured creature, perhaps it's time you got a little risky — like an orange-red.

Dior Addict Lacquer in shade Dior Pulse ($37, Sephora) will get you ready for some white-hot attention.


Sagittarius is truly a spirited sign. You're full of energy, often bubbly and compassionate. Flirty pinks are going to be your sweet spot.

Covergirl Lipstick in Enchantress Blush ($6, Target) is the perfectly cheerful baby pink Sag babes were made for.


Pisces are compassionate and sensitive. They're gentle spirits who *love* love, and live to daydream. Your perfect lipstick will be something as ethereal and dreamy as you are.

NYX is THE brand for glossy nudes. Shade Thalia ($4, Ulta), a muted mauve shade, in the ideal color for Pisces babes looking to branch out.


Leo, Leo, Leo... you'll look great in anything. But you already knew that! Go with gold and stop everyone dead in their tracks.

MAC Grand Illusion glossy lip color in Gilded Age ($21, MAC Cosmetics) is nothing but golden-flecked majesty. Embrace the glimmer, Leos!


Virgos get a bad rep. They're often the type-A friend — organized, detail-oriented, practical — that everyone needs in their life, but those descriptors aren't exactly sexy. So play up your feminine side with a bold wine that puts all eyes on you.

Try Fenty Beauty's Mattemoiselle lipstick in Griselda ($18, Sephora).


Taurus folks can be a bit bull-headed — but it's just because you're so driven. A sign that loves to work and play hard should go for a lipstick that's utilitarian, but undeniably sexy. 

High gloss and neutral is your best friend. Covergirl Katy Kat gloss in Cantaloupe ($7, Target) is the shade you've been looking for all along.

So what's YOUR sign?
