Do you have a 'promiscuous pout' ?
Maybe your mouth
screams commitment without you even realising ?
Eyes may be the window
soul, but research by Blistex, the lip guardian angels, has found
lips are actually the best indicators for predicting a person's love
The study, carried out by the University of Leicester found that:
- Women with fuller lips are 28% more likely to be seen as just a
fun date rather than marriage material
- Men with thinner lips are 39% more likely to have a longer lasting
relationship than men with full lips
- Whilst women with thinner lips are 57% more likely to have longer
relationships than women with fuller lips
- 88% of happy couples chose long-term partners with lips that
mirrored their own
- Men with fuller lips were 21.6% more likely to be rated as
- Women with fuller lips were 37.6% more likely to be rated
Adrian White from the University of Leicester explained,
" The finding shows that we are attracted to celebrities
that have fuller and wider lips than our partners; we deem them to
attractive. However, our relationships tend to last less time with
people who have lips that are closer to our ideal. In other words,
we find fuller lips more attractive but our relationships tend to last
longer with people who have similar lips to our own."
" Blistex has always known how expressive lips can be, but
this research proves how important taking care of your pout really
healthy and kissable smile really can determine whether you're set
for some hot lip fun, or on the road to long term commitment," said
Nick Lang, Blistex Brand Manager.
What your lips can tell you about yourself:

middle of life Famous examples: Julia Roberts, Jamie Oliver, Joanna

fighting-spirit Famous examples: Rowan Atkinson, Margaret Thatcher,
Emotional, passionate, sensual, expressive, talkative & outgoing
Famous examples: Naomi Camphell, Richard Branson, Muhammed Ali
Efficient, make clear and precise statements, achieving,
disciplined, get on with life without fuss Famous examples: George
W Bush, John
Major, Robbie Williams
Blistex has taken some of our favourite celebrities and analysed their
lips to see if their love will last or pass.
CHARLOTTE CHURCH & GAVIN HENSON 9/10
These two both have small to medium sized mouths with full lips. This
lip shape indicates an interest in relationships and family, and a
caring streak. Their matching mouths mean they are the perfect match
and their love will stand the test of time if they settle down together.
PRESTON & CHANTELLE 3/10
Whilst this pair have similar lip size and fullness, their mouth shapes
are different. Chantelle's indicates that she is emotional and outgoing,
but perhaps self-centred. Preston's mouth shows refinement and elegance
but appears hollow. We predict this combination may result in neediness
or desperation on one side of the relationship that may be hard to
CHERYL TWEEDY & ASHLEY COLE 10/10
Cheryl's small mouth and full lips combined with Ashley's large mouth
and full lips is a passionate combination. Cheryl's lips show she is
strong-willed and sensual, Ashley's indicate an expressive and emotional
man with expensive tastes. This pair's love will grow deeper over time
as they support each other.
WAYNE ROONEY & COLLEEN MCLOUGHLIN 5/10
Wayne's small mouth and thin lips show he is independent and strong-willed,
but guarded. Colleen's medium mouth and fuller lips indicate a sensitive
soul with hidden strengths. Together this pairing will face many hurdles
and communication could be a problem.
And what about those single celebrities? Can they expect to find lasting
love this year?
Geri's small mouth and medium sized lips indicate a driven, ambitious
and out-going person who is worldy-wise. These lips also show someone
who is very needy and can try too hard, thereby scaring off potential
suitors. People with these lips often stay single for longer and settle
down much later in life once they mellow with age. It appears Geri
is destined to stay single for sometime yet.
Robbie has a medium sized mouth with very thin lips that scream achievement
but do not show any hint of joy. This is a man who is extremely un-approachable.
Even those that think they know him, don't. Thin-lipped people are
good at putting on a public face and often harbour deep secrets. Until
he reveals a bit more of the true Robbie, he'll not find real love.
DENISE VAN OUTEN
Denise's small mouth and full lips mean she is emotional,
passionate and sensual. She is prone to whirlwind romances that often
once the passion is gone. However this lip shape also indicates optimism
and courage, she doesn't find it hard to meet new people. Maybe her
Prince Charming is just around the corner !
