How to Choose the Perfect Lipstick Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Let the stars dictate your new signature shade.

Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut when it comes to makeup? Do you find yourself consistently reaching for the same handful of products, morning after morning, predictably ending up with a finished makeup look that’s identical to the one you wore yesterday? There’s nothing wrong with finding what works for you when it comes to makeup. In fact, the age-old saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” makes a good point. Sometimes.

But occasionally we all crave change and want to switch things up a bit. After all, makeup is meant to be fun, right? In the name of experimentation and keeping things exciting, you might be considering trying out a new look. And the easiest way to do that is not a dramatic haircut or a new eyebrow shape—it’s by swapping out your usual lip colour for something new.

But how does one decide on something that has such a wide array of options? The answer is simple: by looking to the stars. Astrology is having a real moment in every way lately—from fashion to social media—and it has even infiltrated the beauty world. So, yes, you can turn to astrology for lipstick shade selections.

Below are some picks for the best lipstick for your zodiac sign.


People who fall under this fiery sign want to reach for a lipstick that’s just as fiery as they are. Try L’Oréal Paris Infallible 2-Step Lip Colour in 211 Infallible Red, a no-transfer, long-lasting (24 hours!) lipstick in a true red shade.


Taureans are sensual and emotional and have an appreciation for the finer things in life. This earth sign suits nude, glossy lipstick shades, like L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Glossy Fawn 900.


Geminis approach life with boundless curiosity and a sense of youthfulness and playfulness that no other sign can really compare to. Showcase that sense of adventure with a fun bright-pink shade, like L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche L’Extraordinaire in 105 Pink Tremolo.


Cancerians can often be traditional and feminine and have a love of soft, classic beauty. And what’s more classic than a pretty pink lipgloss? Try L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Gloss in Blush .


Bold and confident Leos are, unsurprisingly, game to try anything—and any trend—at least once, which makes them a perfect candidate for L’Oréal Paris Infallible Lip Paints Metallic in Moon Lust, a glossy lippie with a bold, metallic finish.


This earth sign tends to be ruled by order, perfectionism and colouring inside the lines. The best lipstick for this sign? A lip liner (for precision) in an everyday shade, like L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner in Matte-Stermind.


This air sign is the social butterfly of the zodiac and would enjoy a bright shade that gets them lots of compliments as they make the rounds on a Saturday night spent party-hopping. L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Luminous Coral 916 is a great choice.


Dark and mysterious Scorpios have an appreciation for the darker things in life, and their choice in lip colour is no exception. The best lipstick for this zodiac sign is something vampy and moody, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Roseblood.


This fire sign is ruled by a need for change and adventure, so switching up something like a signature shade is an easy task—as long as it’s a bold, long-wearing colour that won’t interfere with Sagittarians’ on-the-go lifestyle. L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lip in Matte-Jestic 707 is the perfect pick.


Hard-working, serious Capricorns need a lipstick shade that is a real workhorse and won’t attract too much attention. L’Oréal Paris Infallible 2-Step Lip Colour in Permanent Blush is a safe, reliable bet.


The artist of the zodiac, this air sign loves artistic experimentation, which is why they’re down to try any colour, any formula and any finish. Try a bubble-gum pink, like L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lip n A Drop of a Matte 711.


This moody, emotional and empathetic sign cares more about how a lipstick feels on their lips than how it looks. The best lipstick for this sign is a rich, nourishing gloss, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Gloss in 125 Bloom.
