A set of limited-edition lipstick glasses at Ikea in the United States got me thinking. First thought: Ally hates leaving lip colour impressions on cups and glasses; wonder what she'd think of these? Second thought: Wait, I don't like leaving lip prints on drink-ware either, and I bet Ally and I aren't the only ones who feel this way.
So, let's take a poll:
- Does leaving a lipstick prints on your mug or glass when you drink make you crazy?
- Would you buy these OMEDELBAR Lipstick Glasses ($3.99 USD for a 2-pack at Ikea stores)? Or would you shun them?

I'm pretty certain I've seen lip-print artwork screened on mugs or glasses before. But the day before I spotted these online, I'd worn a bright liquid lipstick and had wiped my prints off the rim of my white coffee mug after each darned sip. If I had one of these glasses, would I just line my own lips up with the print to camouflage my smears? Or would the print itself bother me endlessly? Depends on the day, I think. *grin*
Looking forward to your response!
