Pucker up!

…Greg Morago in the Hartford Courant riffs off on lipstick.

…Why use it just to color your lips? How about modifying your behavior, wouldn’t that be fun?

…The Spazztick Caffeinated Lip Balm contains caffeine (isn’t that just about the best name EVER?). The peppy product was supposedly developed by a cop (presumably female) who needed to look great and stay awake on stakeouts.

…Joey NY is one company cranking these babies out. Joey NY Lipfit has an appetite suppressant, Lipnix reduces the urge to smoke, and CinnaMEN attracts men (close enough to smell your lips).

…Personally, HA likes cream eye shadows and uses certain shades of lipstick on her eyelids. Great way to apply it!

…Cosmetic multitasking!

…But one observation: If products do double-duty, do you sell half as many products?

Wow, thats interesting that a woman consumes over 4 to 9 lbs of lipstick in her lifetime! Here is the link that I found that shows all of the research:

Thanks for posting that. Very interesting! I know we have scarfed our share--and may be carrying a few people! Now, it might be full of weird substances...
