Lipsticks That Perfectly Channel Our Favorite Greek Goddesses

    In an ideal world, ‘Girls-Almighty’ still rule the throne. Greek goddesses continue to spread peace and harmony throughout the universe. The patriarchy has been smashed. There is infinite equality. Life is in a state of nirvana.

    Sadly, the year is 2017 and all we have going for the human race are emojis and Chai Tea lattes. Yet, we are free to dream. If greek goddesses were to roam the Earth once more, how would they look like? Most importantly, what would their signature lip color be? (The latter was an authentic thought-process)

    We had a bit of time on our hands and reimagined some of our favorite Greek goddesses, sporting some of the most iconic lip colors from our favorite luxe brands to-date. Channel them as you wish, whomever your personality resonates with the most.

    Eris, goddess of discord and strife

    eris

    For every yin is a corresponding yang. In this case, Eris thrives as the balancing act to all things calm. We envision her turning heads (both literally and figuratively) in Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick in Shanghai Nights, a deep, rich, sultry red to complement her intense personality.

    Hera, goddess of marriage and queen of the Olympian Goddesses

    hera

    A true khaleesi deserves to shine in the finest gold, thus we imagine Hera dressed to the nines in her signature Christian Louboutin’s Loubilaque in Goldissima, a metallic nude gold that is fit for royalty.

    Nyx,  goddess of the night

    Dark and mysterious as she is, we envision Nyx in something just as sexy. Enter Dior’s Rogue Dior in Poison Matte—the perfect dark plum to emulate her true element, the night sky.

    Athena, goddess of war, wisdom, and domestic crafts

    athena

    You can say that Athena is a jack of all trades, domineering over a multitude of different elements that exist in this earth. In line with this, we picked a universally flattering shade to fit the overly-adaptive goddess; Undoubtedly, the Yves Saint Laurent Rogue Pur Couture Lip Color in Beige Promenade would suit her perfectly.

    Gaea, goddess of Earth

    gaea

    The goddess of the Earth deserves something as pure and as feminine as herself, therefore we feel that the Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Ultradior would serve as the perfect signature pink sheen over her lips.

    Aphrodite, goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation

    aphrodite

    For the ultimate alpha-female, Chanel’s Rouge Allure in N°1. Need we say more?
