Temporary Lip TattoosHave you heard of temporary lip tattoos?

They're the latest crazy new trend to hit beauty stores and boutiques. Much like the tattoos your kids love so much, you cut the lips to fit your own, dab them on with a little water, and peel off the backing paper.

Voila! Your lips are leopard print! Or polka-dotted! Or star-spangled!

But what happens when you take this radical new look out on the street? I took this dare, and the reactions to my leopard print lips were HILARIOUS.

I wore my lip tattoos in a business district at lunch time, and I have to say people weren't exactly clamoring to get the look for themselves -- probably because the tattoos looked less like leopard print on my lips and more like disgusting black scabs on a sickly yellow background.

NOT HOT.

Another drawback to these tattoos is that they make your lips feel incredibly dry (a little bit of chapstick with these tats is definitely in order) and they crack if you smile too wide.

NOT HOT.

They were, however, easy to apply, despite the daunting instruction leaflet that came with my lip tattoos. And if you're looking for a perfect addition to a Halloween costume, well, these might be just what you're looking for.

Otherwise, I wouldn't really advise buying these ...
