Choosing a fave lipstick is hard, we know — but what if we told you that astrology should be your guide? Sure, we navigate our future relationships and career choices by the stars, but when it comes to lipstick, the idea may seem slightly WTF. We’re here to tell you it’s solid (based on the actual science behind astrology). Your zodiac sign reveals characteristic traits about you, and because of that, you may be attracted to specific colors and formulas. It’s a whole new way to explore what your lipstick says about your personality. To that end, we’ve done the homework and found your new favorite lipsticks, dictated by fate ;) Read on to discover your new signature lippy.
The Best Lipstick for ARIES
1. Too Faced La Créme Colored Drenched Lipstick in WHAM! ($22): You’re a free spirit who likes to move around, and this nourishing formula will stick by your side. It stays put (even through a major makeout sesh), and the deep shimmery raspberry speaks to your inner wild child.
The Best Lipstick for TAURUS
2. Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Bare Naked ($25): You like the finer things in life, and that includes your makeup. A champagne, high-shine gloss from makeup maven Laura Mercier gives your lips the luster and richness you crave, and the cozy color shows off your warm-hearted nature.
The Best Lipstick for GEMINI
3. Wander Beauty Wanderout Dual Lipsticks in Wanderberry/Barely There ($30): Your twinning sign calls for a lippy that matches your adaptable personality. So what’s better than a two-sided lipstick with classic hues you can switch on a whim? We love this color combo of a mauve-tinged nude for when you want to keep it casual, and a deep burgundy for when you need to go bold.
The Best Lipstick for CANCER
4. Tom Ford Moisturecore Lip Color in Scandola ($55): Your sign is all about security, and this lipstick infused with a moisturizing passionfruit core and conditioning plant butters feels super comfy on your lips.

The Best Lipstick for LEO
5. Sonia Kashuk Knockout Beauty Matte Lipstick in Power Punch ($12): You love drama and being in the spotlight, so it should come as no surprise that a standout red is the hue for you. Packaged in a cool, artsy tube, this empowering, mango-butter formula is bold, courageous and daring — just like you.
The Best Lipstick for VIRGO
6. Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick in It’s a Keeper ($7): Virgos are known for being deeply analytical and striving for perfection, so this wearable icy-rose hue is their holy grail. The slanted shape means easy application, and the all-day moisture-rich formula stays on beautifully, just like you’d expect it to.
The Best Lipstick for LIBRA
7. Lipstick Queen Eden Lipstick ($24): This semi-sheer stick from Lipstick Queen will help you achieve harmony inside and out, which is what your sign is all about.
