your horoscope and your lipstick color intersect when paul & joe celebrates its tenth anniversary.

Paul & Joe

is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in a few different ways. For one, they're re-launching their line of lipsticks. This fall, they're introducing 20 different shades--ranging from a sheer shimmer to a deep raisin--all refillable, so you can mix and match their ridiculously cute lipstick cases (this season includes one with a hyper-realistic image of a fluffy white kitten). They've also got an anniversary kit, which comes with a floral-print pressed powder and a slew of limited edition eye shadows. But the mystics in the office were most excited by the autumnal horoscopes they printed in their anniversary promotional newsletter; after all, we need something in between Susan Miller monthly readings. So we looked at the stars, stared closely at the new line of lipsticks, and predicted which color was best suited for each sign. Consider it a beauty makeover that's in the stars. Find your sign to see your Paul & Joe horoscope-lipstick match.

Paul & Joe fall lipstick collection pick: Strawberry Jam Why: Nothing says strong an independent like a flushed pink lip. GEMINI "The time is perfect for a reassessment of your priorities.

Paul & Joe lipstick collection pick: Just Peachy Why: Bright tangerine is the color equivalent of a kitten roaring. Cute.

LIBRA "You want to make changes but are unsure where to begin. Start here with a new look and see where that takes you. You'll be surprised by an old friend's new attitude toward you." Paul & Joe lipstick collection pick: Avenue Montaigne Why: Berry stained lips are a no-brainer for fall. SAGITTARIUS "Don't worry when autumn begins with some unexpected news from far away.
