Here's all the dope... Pick wisely girls!

Bright Pink

Most Popular

Karen says that pink is the colour of innocence, but a bright pink adds some heat too, giving out a mixed message of approach-avoidance. If you wear this shade on a first date, you may confuse him as to what you want from a relationship.

Burgundy

This colour reflects a strong, decisive character. However, Karen thinks if you wear this shade, you might find yourself holding back on the date, unwilling to reveal too much about yourself too soon. 

Red

The classic red sends out emotionally charged signals. Since this colour is associated with energy, passion, and action, it signals that you're a bold, confident woman and one in her sexual prime.  

Coral

This shade suggests that you're approaching the date with the right balance of playfulness and enthusiasm. Your date would think that you want to be noticed and willing to have fun.

Nude

While nude lip has turned into a classic from a fleeting trend, it signals that you're someone who wants to be taken seriously, have nothing to hide, and a lot to offer. This shade's a cue for vulnerability and sensitivity to your approach but with the right partner, you'd be willing to bare your soul and wear your heart on your sleeve.
