The power of lipstick; improve confidence and get noticed

Recently, just to add a little color to my pale winter face, I put on a deep red lipstick before going to the grocery store and I couldn’t help but notice what occurred. Wearing ┬ájust lipstick, no other makeup, got me noticed; which was astounding to me. I’m not just talking about other customers smiling at me as I walked past, but also store employees asking me if I needed help in almost every aisle of Stop and Shop. I kept asking myself, what the heck is going on here? You see, I had forgotten that I had the lipstick on, but after a while it hit me; wearing lipstick is powerful, it improves confidence and gets you noticed.

Keep in mind, I was not in any way dolled up on this particular day; I hadn’t showered and was in my workout clothes, but it didn’t seem to matter, the lipstick spoke for itself. Because I research and write about health and wellness everyday, I took note and started to realize the power of lipstick and the psychological affects it has on us all. How can a simple spark of color on your face create such attention while also making you feel so great about yourself at the same time? I wanted to find out.

Well, it turns out, studies have shown that women feel more confident when wearing lipstick, especially dark, deep red colors. Sure, nobody wants to go through the trouble of creating a perfect pout everyday, but it is something to think about, especially when you’re in the need of a little pick-me-up.

In addition, not that I approve any sort of manipulation of getting what you want through how you look, it doesn’t hurt to stand out in a crowd every once in a while. This whole concept may seem vain to a certain level, but it’s something to think about, and I don’t know any woman who couldn’t use a little boost in self-esteem from time to time. And if we need the help of a product, so be it, be yourself with more confidence. Give it a try sometime; wear some lipstick just for you and see what happens.
