Hey, Hot Lips! Cool It!

by Andrea Goodwin, associate editor (agoodwin@beanstalkbiz.com)

Girls, don’t we all have a little Hot Lips Houlihan in us? Remember Loretta Switt’s smoldering and seductive kisses melting away her co-stars on M.A.S.H.? We think her curvaceous form and her pouty full lips may have been the inspiration behind Bare Escentuals’ new lip gloss collection: The Buxom Girls.

Meet Candi, Dolly, Amber, and Bambi – who adorn the boxes of the just-in-time-for-Valentine’s-Day introduction to the Bare Escentuals lip product line. Our girls, who inspire shades such as Strawberry Jam and Blushed Pink, may be described as a cross between a pin-up and a Frederick’s of Hollywood ad. We think they are adorable because if you have lost touch with your “inner Bambi”, it is time to go to therapy.

More about the product:

The Buxom Lips Big and Healthy Lip Polish is a plumping lip gloss formulated to leave lips with the same shape as the buxom girls themselves: curvaceous, voluptuous and healthy. The tingling and cooling sensation remind the wearer of the high volume shine she is experiencing. Over time, lips become fuller and smoother, thanks to an all-natural, collagen-boosting ceramide that repairs damaged lip tissue and stimuates the production of new collagen. The infusion of vitamin A and E keeps lips soft and protected.

We appreciate our friends at Bare Escentuals because this fun and high quality product reminds us that make up is about attitude. It isn’t just what you are wearing, but how you wear it. Better yet, surprise your mate with minty and yummy-flavored plump kisses, just to keep him guessing what will come next.

Buxom Lips Lip Glosses retail for $18.00 and can be found at www.bareescentuals.com, www.sephora.com, at any Bare Escentuals Boutique, or by calling 800/227-3990.
