Which Beauty Item You Should Splurge On, Based on Your Sign

There’s a whole world of beauty products out there just waiting to be tried, but as collegiettes, we don’t necessarily have the time or money to try them all. It can be nearly impossible to decide whether to go all out on some matte lipstick or drop cash on killer mascara, so instead of making that impossible decision, try turning to the stars. Here are beauty products you should splurge on based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: NARS Mind Game Velvet Lip Glide Set

You’re adventurous and up for trying new things, so try this latest lip trend! Matte lipstick is so in, and this new product simplifies a classic runway technique of pressing and blotting lipstick onto the lips and blurring the edges. This product has a creamy matte lipstick on one end and a rubbery, eraser-like tip on the other to blur and smudge the edges. Give it a try!

Taurus: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

You’re reliable and patient, so you deserve a reliable beauty product. We recommend you try Kat Von D’s felt-tip eyeliner. It flows steady and creates a smooth continuous line without tons of effort or frustration. Create sharp lines wings and straight lines in no time at all.

Gemini: Lipstick Queen’s Oxymoron collection

An adaptable and versatile Gemini should have equally nifty beauty products, so try this lipstick and blush combo product! Rub a little on your cheeks and then swipe a little across your lips for an easy yet beautiful touch.

Cancer: Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand

We love that you’re so emotional and loving, Cancer. You may be worried about your sensitive soul and crying eyes, but we’ve found a beauty product to help! This magical little eye wand will cover any red and puffy eyes or dark circles underneath after a night of crying while watching Grey’s Anatomy.

Leo: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

For the generous Leo, we suggest you invest in these super pigmented lipsticks. This matte lipstick is rich, long-wearing and super beautiful! Check out all of those amazing and bright colors. Get creative with your lip color, Leo!

Virgo: Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel

The modest Virgo doesn’t need much in her makeup bag, but we love this brow mascara from Benefit. Thick, well-sculpted brows are so in, so now is the time to invest in a great brow mascara that squares off brows and fills in gaps without clumping or creating dark spots.

Libra: YSL Mon Paris Eau de Parfum

For you, charming and romantic Libra, we suggest you invest in a beautiful and romantic scent. This perfume is inspired by the romantic city of Paris and includes scents of berries, citrus, pear, white flowers, amber and patchouli, and not to mention the Datura flower, a hallucinogenic plant historically used in witches’ brews. Love potion, much?

Scorpio: Christian Louboutin ‘Rouge Louboutin’ Nail Colour

The forceful, emotional and intuitive Scorpio, we suggest this high fashion nail polish harder, stronger, shinier surface than regular polish. Pick a color to match your personality, and you’re set! We’re thinking red is probably your color.

Sagittarius: Klorane Oat Milk Dry Shampoo

Sagittarius, you’re optimistic and freedom-loving self may not have time for a shower every day with such an adventure-packed schedule, so you should invest in a good dry shampoo. This product has a powder formula that absorbs oil, dirt and odor quickly, without having to get your hair wet.

Capricorn: CLINIQUE Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup

For the practical and prudent Capricorn, we suggest you invest in this acne fighting foundation. It’s practical to invest in makeup that not only accentuates your features, but also puts in the work to keep you looking flawless. Besides, with such a multi-tasking personality, it only makes sense that your makeup would do the same.

Aquarius, you are friendly, honest and loyal, and such a perfect combination deserves an equally well-rounded beauty product. This lip tint is an oil, stain and a gloss. The oil-based formula hydrates like a balm but has the shine and feel of a gloss. Plus it’s perfectly paired with any beauty look!

Pisces: Make Up for Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation

For the sensitive and compassionate Pisces, we suggest you invest in this invisible cover foundation. This full-coverage formula is creamy and hydrating and covers any blemish you may want to hide, while keeping you feeling polished and fabulous.
