New Product Alert: 2 Love My Lips – Date Rape Lip Gloss!

Okay. So I know that beauty is all about innovation, creativity and imagination but I am not quite sure how date rape and lip gloss work in tandem. I was riding the stationary bike at the gym before my weekly bootcamp session and happened to be skimming through Marie Claire magazine when I came upon a blurb about this new date rape lip gloss from the UK. Of course I had to know more – being a beauty writer isn’t just about sampling new products and talking about the latest trends. Its also a bit investigative – especially when it comes to the social and cultural implications behind beauty products and the beauty business.

So, I researched the brand and its called 2 Love My Lips. The company was created by a woman who grew tired of hearing the horror stories of various women going out to the club to party and having their drinks spiked. The concept behind the gloss is that it comes with a test strip that detects if there are any illegal substances in one’s drink which will alert the woman before she drinks it and ultimately save her from a possible date rape situation.

The idea makes sense but there’s something a bit off about combining date rape and beauty products. I think I might have to pass on this one but I give the founder and creator of 2 Love My Lips a thumbs up for bringing attention and awareness to drink spiking.
