Okay we get it, sex sells. But this Lancome commercial would have us believe that Kate Winslet
really wants to have sexytimes with some lipstick. Watch as she writhes around on the floor in the nude with a set of the glosses and seductively puts a swipe of the stuff on her maw. No thanks–we prefer real sex to makeup sex. [Hollywood Hiccups

When a girl’s down, she finds out who’s got her back! I’ve got a friend in Booty Parlor, the sex toy company: after I stupidly left one of my vibrators behind in my old apartment after a breakup, they sent me a new vibe in the mail, stat! And it wasn’t a regular old dildo-style vibe either! Booty Parlor sent me a Liptrik vibrator, the exact shape, size, and appearance of a red lipstick. Keep reading »
You’ve heard this makeup rule before: You only highlight your eyes or your lips, not both … until now.

Is your man a Pikachu fan? Does he wish you were sexy in Pokemon ways? Do you harbor secret fantasies involving video games? DeviantART user Viridis Somnio created this Pikachu lip look.
“This is a bonus Animal-ipstick I did for a photo assignment. It’s Pikachu! Everyone in class loooved this one. My final project was a total of 20 photos of anything I wanted. Mine is sort of a typology, but the only consistent element are my lips.”

Shopbop.com, one of our favorite online sources for designer duds and accessories, and Sephora have released the limited-edition SEPHORA COLLECTION Palette Color Play 5 in 1 palette that was inspired by the Shopbop “Faces of Fashion” editorial look book.

When I was in sixth grade, I bought a lime green mood-changing lipstick for $1.25. It painted my mouth a heinous hot pink. I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup at the time, but I think my mom let me wear it as a punishment because it was so horrible.
So you can understand my apprehension when I read about Urban Outfitters‘ new mood-changing lipsticks. The five pastel shades are supposed go on extremely sheer in varying degrees of pink and leave lips moisturized. All that being said, I’m still having a difficult time thinking of Urban as a beauty emporium. Would you try mood-changing lipstick? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

But MAC sweetened the deal by adding VIVA GLAM V lipstick and lip gloss to the ‘Tis Noble to Give VIVA GLAM Lip Bag. What’s even better? All proceeds go to the MAC AIDS Fund to help support people living with HIV/AIDS.
