Luscious lipsticks for hot lips

Luscious Red lips

Classic Red Lipstick

Ladies - I'm talking to you. Men don't always notice things, do they? You got to Spell It Out! Lipstick does just this. Luscious red or fuchsia pink will let him know that you are there and you're expecting him to get on and do the kissing. Deliciously moist and shiny, brilliantly coloured, lipstick is like a big man-sign - so be careful how you use it!

I love Lime Crime lipsticks - love the name and love the rich, bright and brilliant colours


Red Hot Lipstick

RED symbolises danger, and heat and passion. Bring it on with these red-hot classics.

Passionate Pink Lipstick With Spots! Stand out from the crowd

Knock the spots off!

There's no getting away from lips like these - Shocking Pink! will get you noticed! So to get kissed - stand out from the crowd but pink with spots on - awesome. Who would have thought it? Fab for parties and fun for a girls night out. I'd give these polkadot cuties a whirl - wouldn't you?

Pale Passion

The ice cool lipsitck below is so retro it the future. Pale lips and dark smoky eyes take you right back to Biba. This sugar-pink, though, is a bit more girlie and less scary than the white and flesh colours of times gone by.

Sugar, Barbie pink. Bright but light - I love it too!



Look After Your Lips

Or Keep Your Lips Nude and Natural - Keep them beautiful for International Kissing Day


Look after your lips and keep them natural

Natural lips are the most kissable of all so make sure that your lips are soft , moist and gorgeous. You need to moisturise, that's for sure, but you can also plump up your lips or give them a subtle glow with lip balms and lip glosses. Take a few tips on how to pamper your lips.

I'm a Great Fan of Vasaline - Cheap and effecive

Vaseline Lip Therapy SPF 15 Sun Protection Petroleum Jelly 20g
Vaseline Lip Therapy SPF 15 Sun Protection Petroleum Jelly 20g

This moisturiser has sun protection built in. This will protect your lips from that damaging UV light and keep them plump and soft. I wish I'd known about this when I was younger.


Lip Balms and Moisurisers - Keep them soft and moist

Cracked, dry lips are not so kissable, so keep yours soft with moisturisers. I'll tell you this, petroleum jelly, 'Vaseline' to me, works just fine, but the newer products might just have the edge. There are good health reasons for keeping your lips in tact, because your skin is the first line of defence against infection and germs, and a vital part of sex appeal is rampant good health.


Put power in your pout

Plump Up your Lips With Lip Plumpers - You can have bigger and juicier lips for Kissing Day!

Do lip-plumpers work? (Do you want plump lips anyway? It's only fashion - but if you do then read on ...) If you have a look at reviews for these products people do seem to think that they work, and this is the theory behind it - in brief. Thin lips are a) Inherited (nothing much you can do about that then!), b) caused by age (so don't get any older) and c) Sun, or UV exposure. Get those lips under cover!

This is what plumping creams do for you:

  • Help skin cell regeneration
  • Increase blood flow to the lips: they contain an irritant which casues this - or you can eat hot food!
  • Increase the production of collagen and this makes them look fuller

Ingredients to look out for your lip plumper should include some or all of the following if it's going to be effective: hyaluronic acid,

peptides, cinnamon or extracts from peppers (hence the curry), and benzyl nicotinate, & moisturizers such as Jojoba oil or vitamin E

Delicious Lip Gloss

For tasty kisses

Tasty lips for Kissing Days

Your lips now look good, and feel good but what more could you do to get the edge when it comes to Kissing? Taste of course. Bring in another sense and give your lover a flavour explosion. There are so many tantalising and wacky lipstick flavors out there - I've chosen just a few - fruit, mince pie and chips!

Fabulous Flavoured Lip Gloss and Lip Balm - Spice up your kisses!

Ok, you've painted your lips bright red or passion pink, or maybe you've just left them natural, but for that shiny, ready to kiss, moist lip look you need lip gloss, and what better way to spice up your kisses than to surprise your lover with flavours they would never have imagined? Try cherry, cola .

You can moisturise and flavour at the same tile with flavoured lip balms. What about French Fry lip balm or bubblegum lip balm. Wild and crazy!

Mince Pie Flavoured lip Gloss for seasonal cheer

Tasty lips for a Christmas treat

What better way to spruce up those lips for that under-the-mistleto kiss than a mince pie flavored lip gloss? Pucker up for Christmas and dish up a bit of seasonal fun with this festive treat.

Chip flavour lip balm for a down-to-earth salty little something


Marilyn will get you in the mood for kissing

Marilyn Monroe Sings 'Kiss' - Hot pink!

"If music be the food of love ...." play on, said Shakespeare and if this doesn't get you in the mood for kissing .... nothing will!

Marilyn Monroe must be the Queen of gorgeous, kissable lips and she certainly knows how to pout! She chooses bright reds and pink for her lipstick - and I just adore the brilliant pink dress that sets off the lipstick (or vice versa) so well.

Take the time to listen to Marilyn singing 'Kiss' - it really is a treat and she really is so very hot!!!

Hot pink dress, hot lips and a hot song all about kissing.

And don't forget ... on July the 6th - Save one for me!

      My daughter's birthday is on World Kiss Day... when I told her she was "outraged"... at least for now, wait until she gets a little older.

      No passionate kisses for me these days, but I will be sure to plant a few wet ones on my daughter's precious cheeks! And my doggies too, for good measure!
