7 Days of Smooches Challenge: Get Your Pucker and Your Man’s Patience Ready!

We’re a week away from Valentine’s Day and what better way to piss off your loved one than showering him with kisses full of lip product?  Seriously, the biggest trend right now is the Statement Lip but it kind of (operative words being “kind of”) takes away from the fun when your man ends up with a Statement Lip as well.  Personally, wild horses (and a crabby husband with pink-stained lips) won’t drag me away from rocking a bright fuchsia lip this season, but even I don’t wear a bold lip every day.  Hence, it’s on to find the best lip product for kissing your man. We’ll start out on the sheer side so my husband doesn’t ban me from kissing him by Valentine’s Day.

Day 1 Smoocher: Per-fekt Lip Perfection Gel

Where has this Perfekt Lip Perfection Gel  ($24) been all my life?  As soon as I applied this silky smooth, spearmint-flavored gel I knew my husband’s opinion would be of little concern as to whether not I would use it again.  Don’t be fooled by the dark pigment in the photo. I’m wearing Vine (pictured) right now and it shows up as a satin “lips just bitten” sheer.  Once I applied it my lips, they instantly felt more hydrated, smoother and after 5 minutes they were visibly plumper like I had been making out with my man for the past hour. Speaking of…

The True Test: After 10 minutes (I wanted the product to settle in) I gave my husband a big fat kiss.  He rubbed his lips together and said, “sticky” but then “but your lips feel really soft.” BINGO!  And by the way, this man doesn’t know sticky because I don’t usually wear lip gloss. Trust me, by a makeup-wearing woman’s standards this product isn’t sticky.

It’s also packed with lip-loving ingredients (from Per-fekt Beauty):

  • Hyaluronic Microspheres hydrate the lip and help firm and improve lips elasticity, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines. 
  • Peptides help stimulate the production of collagen.  
  • Jojoba moisturizes the lips and does not evaporate like water based moisturizers.  
  • Antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid, vitamins A and E help protect the surface from free radicals. 
  • Natural spearmint adds a slight cooling sensation, great taste, and helps the breath feel fresh!
  • With Smart Color Technology, each of the 5 shades is universally flattering – yet look different on everyone.  

The Verdict

    Oh my gosh, I’m so glad you’re doing this! I loooove rocking a beautiful red lip (goes well with my dark hair and cropped bangs), but my poor boyfriend! We don’t full on make out in public, but kisses usually occur every ten minutes or so (or more)! Not as much fun when I have to worry about my lip color needing to be reapplied, and he has to wipe lipstick off his face after every kiss. lol

    You are too cute, Danae! Don’t worry, I’ll be pulling out the high pigment stains later in the week to ensure you’re not both rockin’ a red lip!
