YOUR LIP PRODUCT ENNEAGRAM GUIDE

Sure, horoscopes have had a serious renaissance. But these days we're all about the Enneagram, a personality type model in which every type is interconnected. (If you haven't taken the test, you can do so here!)


Enneagrams aren't just fun, though: In our experience, they're scary accurate, which makes them useful for everything from handling workplace disputes to choosing a new lip color. And while we can't necessarily do anything about your coworker who talks on the phone with her boyfriend all day, we can definitely help with your lippie. Just find your Enneagram below.


TYPE 1: THE REFORMER

So, you're a perfectionist. Why do people say that like it's a bad thing?! You're rational, purposeful, and exhibit an unmatched level of self-control. That's why Lip Velvet in Darling is perfect for you: it's a totally risk-free dusty pink that is sure to look amazing on you (because it does on everyone), lasts so long you won't have to think about reapplying, and has a precision applicator that's totally in line with your detail-oriented tendencies. No risk of coloring outside the lines!




TYPE 2: THE HELPER

Even if you're not aware of it, you're probably the most caring person in any given room. You constantly put others before yourself, sometimes to your own detriment. Lip Glaze in Spicy is as generous as you are: It starts off as a super nourishing, bold berry gloss with megawatt shine, then gradually fades to the prettiest light pink stain. It's the lip color that keeps on giving!




TYPE 3: THE ACHIEVER

No matter what you set your mind to or how difficult the journey, you accomplish it—in your career, personal projects, relationships, everything. Yes, your drive is unparalleled, but you also (admittedly) care what people think, so you refuse to fail. Swipe on Lip Crème in Damsel, a bold, blue-toned red, to get just the boost of empowerment you need to achieve all those big goals.




TYPE 4: THE INDIVIDUALIST

Even if you're not an artist, you likely have an artist's mind. You're expressive, creative, and imaginative, so much so that you're sometimes overly sensitive or shy. Lip Velvet in Fever, a burnt terracotta, is unlike any other lip color out there. It commands attention—perfect for showing off your individuality and urging others to talk to you, even if you're feeling a little withdrawn.




TYPE 5: THE INVESTIGATOR

We'll say this: We wouldn't want to play a game of Clue with you, because we'd lose miserably. You're sharp, perceptive, and a little intense, all reasons why you'd thrive with a tube of Lip Velvet in Sangria, a deep burgundy wine hue that'll last as long as it takes you to figure out all the answers.





TYPE 6: THE LOYALIST

Did you always dream of having a loving partner and children, a roomy home with a white-picket fence, and a secure job with steady pay? There's nothing wrong with that! You're as loyal as they come and seek out others with a similar dedication to commitment. Lip Glaze in Bubbly is a lippie you can always count on. The pale, peachy nude shade moisturizes, adds shine, and most importantly: matches absolutely everything in your closet.




TYPE 7: THE ENTHUSIAST

Okay, we see you with that crazy-packed Google Cal! You're a busy bee with places to go and people to see, but you never lose track of your end goal: fun. Because life isn't worth living without a little spontaneity, right? Consider Lip Crème in Blooming your adventure partner. The bright, hot pink hue is as loud and exciting as they come.




TYPE 8: THE CHALLENGER

If you went to Hogwarts, you'd totally be sorted into Slytherin. You're powerful and confident, and everything you do has a greater purpose—and when people need help with big decisions, they always come to you. Meet Lip Velvet in Fiesta, a fiery, orange-toned red that screams "self-assured." You two are about to be soulmates.




TYPE 9: THE PEACEMAKER

The Enneagram type of Libras everywhere. You're easygoing, flexible, and modest, and tend to act as the voice of reason whenever loved ones disagree. Lip Glaze in Angelic is literally named for you! The sweetest pinky nude out there, it'll give your lips as much love as you give everyone around you.
