Power Lipstick?

So I was traveling a bit last week and there’s two wonderful things that happen when I travel. First, I get to eat meals not prepared by me. And second, I get to read magazines. They could be gossip mags, fashion mags , political or social mags – I love them all.

There was an interesting article that got me thinking. No, not about the government shut down or Kim and Kanye’s baby – it was about lipstick.

Basically the article said that women in the workforce who wear red lipstick tend to feel more confident, powerful and smart. This in turn impacts how others perceive them.

Really? Lipstick? I wasn’t convinced. But then I stated looking at the other women on the train, who had apparently read the article.

So this week I’ve had some big meetings and decided to give it a try. I can’t do RED red… But I did a deep maroon instead. The new hot color called Oxblood. Which is hysterical because I’m a vegetarian. Not that it’s made of blood. Or ox. Anyhoo.

Look at me!


Do I look more powerful? Smarter? More capable? How about showered? At least I look clean right?

    Pretty! But then I’ve always liked and worn red lipstick. Didn’t know it increased my IQ. In fact someone once mentioned red=slutty. Of course I’m not slutty at all, how preposterous! I like red=smart much better, thank you so much! 🙂
