Liparazzi is light up lip gloss with an affixed mirror created by husband/wife team Nina and Max Leykind whose idea came to the creator on a night out with friend Emma Bunton (you know, Baby Spice. Nice name drop by the way). The website asks us to "picture this":
Hot date, cool restaurant, no time to nip to the loo between courses you wonder why your date cools off before dessert.
Ooo-kay. But aside from the Sex and the City-like scenario (and bad grammar to boot), there are some good points as to why the light up lip gloss is a practical idea. For example, the quick check in the mirror in the back of a dark cab to see if there is something in your teeth, trying to find a lost contact lens in a dark club, lighting up the bottom of your bag to find your keys after a tipsy night out...oh, the list goes on. But my personal favorite suggested use: waving the light up gloss at rock concerts instead of a lighter. Of course all of this assumes that you are a club-hopping, concert-going, bar-frequenting social butterfly. But if you are like me and no longer much of any of those things...hmmm...wonder if the light up lip gloss is useful after all.
