If you're looking for clues to a woman’s personality, then read her lips.
A study has found that all those cliches about lipstick colour really do hold true.
Women who paint their lips red do so because they are full of selfconfidence, or intend to appear so.
Ladies who use the brightest reds are also more likely to have better career prospects than women who wear less striking shades.

Those who choose a darker red are feeling sexy and sensuous, and a slick of pale pink means that a woman has a fantastic love life and is happy.

Bare lips, on the other hand, signal that a woman is lacking confidence and feeling less attractive.
Seven out of ten of the 3,000 women polled said they usually chose their lipstick to match the way they were feeling.
But almost three quarters also said that using a different colour could actually help change their mood.
A spokesman for online make-up store VIE at home, which carried out the research, said: ‘The findings show just how much influence the colour women put on their lips can have.
‘By applying red lipstick women instantly feel more confident, sexy and in control – which could be why the women who wear the shade are more likely to succeed in their career too.

Mixed message: Pale pink lipstick, like socialite Paris Hilton and singer Beyonce Knowles wear, can represent either happiness or a good sex life.

‘Wearing lipstick is a quick and affordable way for women to draw attention to their lips, making them feel more attractive and instantly inject a bit of glamour. Also altering the shade of lipstick worn can totally change a woman’s look.’
To create a profile for each colour the study asked women which lipstick shade they wore most frequently.
They were then asked to rate their levels of confidence, happiness and success.
The survey also confirmed that more than half use lippy as a pick-me-up, with 55 per cent saying it cheered them up if they applied some while they felt down.
The poll found that the average women owns lipsticks in five different shades but only keeps one in her handbag.
A spokesman for VIE at home added: ‘The fact that the average woman has five different shades of lipstick shows just how obsessed they are with the cosmetic.
‘And the research also suggests that applying a certain shade of lip colour can totally change the way a woman feels.’
