What The Shape Of Your Lipstick Says About You

Did you know the shape of your lipstick just might stand as a personality test? Here are some of the things we’ve learned when it comes to judging someone by the shape of their COLORESSENTIAL lipstick.


SLANT – close to original shape


You are someone who abides by the rules. You walk the line. You don’t like too much attention and are a bit self-conscious and reserved. You are quite schedule driven! You may occasionally want to attract attention – but it’s through new outfits or changing your hair.





You are someone who is very to the point! You are dependable and even-tempered. You have high morals, are quick-minded, and love a great challenge. You are very careful about your appearance.




You are very opinionated and high-spirited. You are very careful and selective about your friends. You dislike schedules! You are very outgoing and love attention. You can be quite argumentative. The sharper the point, the more ambitious this wearer is.




You are a great detective! You easily make friends and are inquisitive. You are very adventurous and complex. You love excitement.

You are spiritual and curious. You can have a big ego at times and you seek attention. You can be mysterious – but you have a deep love for life. You are a woman who knows what they want and are single-minded about getting it. Double-edged swords value loyalty and are nurturing- but be careful of crossing them.

You are very creative and talkative. You love attention and are energetic and enthusiastic. You are helpful and fall in love easily.

You are loveable! You’re family-oriented and domestic – a “doer”. You can be stubborn over little things and can be prone to exaggerate. You like having people around and often need others around.

You are easy-going and a peacemaker who’s even tempered. You are steady, likeable, and generous!

Beauty Tip: The Many Uses of Coconut Oil



One of my favorite items on my beauty counter is coconut oil. This product is good for just about everything.  Whether I’m at home or traveling, I am never without organic coconut oil. I use it primarily as a body moisturizer and cook with it, but from time to time I have also used it to remove makeup- including eye makeup. I have also rubbed it into my cuticles and on my feet before bed for extra moisture.  It’s great to apply a small amount to your hair to get rid of fly-aways. And, the best part? It smells so good!  It’s a great massage oil as well.  Do you use coconut oil?



What To Take On A Winter Ski Trip


Elle Macpherson – ski chic

If you are heading on a winter getaway where you will be spending time outdoors (whether it’s skiing or a winter hike), we’ve included the must-haves when it comes to packing for your trip with Susan Posnick Cosmetics.  If you are looking to keep things simple, we suggest COLORFLO and COLORME. Our COLORFLO foundation makes it easy to protect your skin from the sun.  Pop it in the pocket of your ski jacket for  instant on-the-go radiant skin and SPF. COLORME is the perfect way to add a dash of color to your cheeks, lips, and even to warm up the eye area and other parts of the face.

A quick and easy way to update your look this fall? Use a duo color eyeliner with a different hue on your top and bottom lids.  The image of Cara Delevingne (right) and Kendall Jenner (left) is the perfect example of this look. Our COLOREYEDEFINE pencils are the perfect way to achieve this complementary colored hue in a cinch.

For Cara’s look: use COLOREYEDEFINE Jet Liner in a thick line across your top lashes and add Moonstone just under the brow to visually lift the brow.  Apply COLOREYEDEFINE in turquoise liner under your lower lashes.  Use our Topaz shadow at the base of the brow bone to contour and shape the eye.

For Kendall’s look: try COLOREYEDEFINE in Bronze and Copper.  Use the Bronze liner to frame the eye staying close to the lashes. Then, use the Copper end at the base of the brow bone to shape the eye at the outer corners on the upper and lower lashes to make your eyes more almond shaped.

You can also try COLOREYEDEFINE in Platinum and Gold – particularly for the holidays! Use the Gold shadow under the bottom lashes and on the lid above the liner.   The platinum pencil can go inside the corners of the eye on the top and bottom to brighten them.
