We present a geometric description of lepton flavor mixing and CP violation in matter by using the language of leptonic unitarity triangles. The exact analytical relations for both sides and inner angles are established between every unitarity triangle in vacuum and its effective counterpart in matter. The typical shape evolution of six triangles with the terrestrial matter density is illustrated for a realistic long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment.
