Lip-Shaped Gloss: Coming Soon To A Tween Near You


Sometimes, the beauty gods deliver a product so different, so unprecedented, and so innovative that we just don't know what to think. Such is the case with Dreamdate NYC, a forthcoming line of tween-targeted lip glosses with applicators shaped like real lips. Life-sized, puckering, smoochy lips. According to a press release from the brand, Dreamdate NYC is "the world’s first lip gloss with a real-life lip applicator which mimics the lips of our tween consumers’ dream date."
It's been, uh, a few years since we were teens, so the idea of locking lips with our gloss isn't exactly our cuppa. But, thinking back to those days before our first-ever kiss, it's easy to see how this product could seem pretty daring (forbidden kisses!) to 11-year-olds daydreaming of One Direction. The question is, will their parents be keen on buying lip gloss for them? And, even more so, gloss that acknowledges their budding sexuality? We should find out next year, when the they are set to launch. For now, check out the Indiegogo video that explains how this wacky idea came to life. (Dreamdate NYC)
