Pucker up, baby

If your partner is a man it’s almost guaranteed he loves lips. A 2010 study from Manchester University discovered men found the most attractive part of a woman’s face to be her lips.

Researchers found that in the first ten seconds of talking to a woman, half of that time is spent gazing at her lips. To make that pout even more enticing, the scientists found that lipstick held his gaze longer.

Pink lipstick held his attention for 6.7 seconds of the total 10 seconds, and red lipstick a staggering 7.3 seconds, that’s nearly 75% of the time. 

Even thin lips increased visual apparel by more than 40 percent when wearing lipstick.

Dr Geoff Beattie, who led the research, summarised saying the study proves that lips represent one of the most sensual aspects of a woman’s body and play a critical role in human sexual attraction. 

“Full and red lips combined deliver the perfect pout to achieve male fixation, but women who simply wear lipstick – regardless of their lip type – secure significantly greater levels of attraction than those who do not.

“For centuries, women have painted their lips red to enhance their appeal, with this practice dating back as far as the Ancient Egyptians who commonly used red lipstick and rouge to enhance their attractiveness.

“Our research suggests that red lips and perceived attractiveness are still inextricably linked, with red lipstick proving to be the most powerful attractor and significantly increasing visual fixation.”
