A signature lip colour makes you stand out, creating a lasting first impression that goes beyond your choice of clothes. After all, your favourite shade is one that not only reflects your style philosophy or complements your choice of OOTD, but also captures a hint of your personality. If you're fearless and love being out-there and heard, a bold lippie is most probably your best friend. If you're the type who prefers to be a bit more low-key, you'd probably be more comfortable with nude or pink shades.
But if you're still unsure which lipstick shade to get next time you're out makeup shopping, take our Lip Colour Personality Quiz below and find out which lip colour you should be rocking!

Your personality is meant to rock the red lip--and you are spoilt for choice. From glossy, muted red lips to the bold matte red lip rocked by super stars Rihanna and Taylor Swift, you have the personality to carry off each red shade and lipstick finish. You turn heads whenever you walk into the room and carry yourself with confidence, chatting up anyone no matter which event you may be at.
For a red pout that is wearable without being too bold and bright, go for a berry shade like Estée Lauder's Pure Envy Lip Potion in Quiet Riot #10. Its Advanced True Vision technology creates a soft, balmy texture that glides effortlessly on the lips for a comfortable and rich lip colour that lasts through the day.
If you answered mostly (b): Coral is the way to go

You're all about creating a muted statement around your look. You love bright colours and have a sweet, girly attitude that makes you approachable and easy to get along with. As such, pink lips is the way to go. It's a sweet, approachable shade that is easy to wear and adds a bright pop of colour to your lips without being too bold or in-your-face.
For this, we love Estée Lauder's Pure Colour Envy Lip Potion in Cold Fire #5. It's a sweet coral shade with a hint of pink. Its rich colour formulation adds depth and dimension to your lips in just one swipe, perfect for that sweet girl-next-door pout.
If you answered mostly (c): It's okay to go Nude

You are down to earthy, homey, and love the simplicity of life. You don't necessarily shrink away from the crowd, but you definitely value your alone time and are okay with mingling quietly in groups. Reflect that in your look with nude shades, ranging from light nude pink to muted browns. Best thing about rocking nude shades, you get to play and experiment with your eye makeup.
For a nude lip colour with a sweet hint of pink, go for Estée Lauder's Pure Colour Envy Lip Potion in Fierce Beauty #4. The sultry, rich formulation gives your lips a bit more dimension for a wearable nude shade.
If you answered mostly (d): Don't be afraid to go bold

You're an individual and opinionated. You're also not afraid to create a statement and aren't worried about what others may think of you. You're great with crowds but also great alone, going through life caught in your own whims and thoughts. So don't be afraid to go bold--reflect that fearless spirit in your lip colour with fun bold shades like plums, bright purples, bright pinks, bright reds, or deep vampy reds.
For a truly bold statement that pops, go for Estée Lauder's Pure Colour Envy Lip Potion in Lethal Red #6. It's a rich bright red shade for that bold, attention-getting pout.
