Do you prefer people with a handicap or without ? Offended? Well as someone with smaller lips so am I.





IMO.....comparing thin lips or full lips to somebody with a handicap or getting offended.....is wayyyyy out there......

It’s not being discriminatory.......unless somebody says they won’t hire due to lip size.....

The lips get smaller while the nose and ears get bigger. LOL.

Hoping by the time that happens, 'sultry' won't be the look the oldster is going for.

Honestly that surprises me and makes me wonder if smoking/vaping aren't a concern among younger women, because they do create lip lines as you age.

I don’t know. I don’t smoke or vape....& don’t know anyone that does.......but I would guess if they are smoking & not thinking about the health or aging risks, they aren’t thinking about their lip lines either..........

I'm more about taking stuff out rather than putting more in. But that's just me and my bod.

Tried lip filler but all that temporary stuff just seem pointless. What DID work really well is permanent makeup. 15 years later and my lips (such as they are) still have good color and shape (including lip liner) and my brows and eyeliner are still there too.

Plastic surgery can be wonderful and if done correctly, no one knows you did it. Life-changer for me.

Agree that Scarlett J. has the perfect lips. And face, and bod....I DO look at lips and everything else, but it's just part of the package. Hate it that lips thin out with age. Thin-lipped is not a good look, but oh well.

There's a documentary on Netflix about diagnosing rare diseases and the lady doctor is so thin-lipped it distracts me. I don't think she's all that old but it makes her look old.

Permanent lip liner can be a nice option for asymmetry & does restore “youthfulness” & the washed out appearance for some patients as they age ....but it’s not permanent...it fades over time....about 3 yrs. It’s used for different reasons than fillers IMO......

You can get the same wrinkles drinking from bottles of water.

Repetitive motions, such as constantly squinting at the sun or sucking on a cigarette, can also make you more likely to develop wrinkles. In a recent article, The Inquisitr identified another potential cause of facial lines: water bottles.

Watching Maria Bartiromo today on Sunday Morning Futures I noticed her lips have shrunk a bit. She was always so overfilled and never needed it, in my opinion, that it affected her speech.

I don't really pay much attention to lips as long as they are natural. My own lips are probably my least attractive facial feature; my top lip disappears when I smile and is smaller than my bottom lip.

The only lips that are a turnoff to me are the ones that are filled with the injectibles and look like they were stung by a wasp or they look like a demented fish. Lisa Rinna in particular looks horrible with those awful inflated lips.
