The Return of No Lips

Although "lip pumpers" are the latest beauty obsession, you'd never know it by flipping through recent fashion magazines. Hearkening back to the 1970s' thin-lip years, a number of ads feature no-upper-lippers Nicole Kidman, Tea Leoni, Maggie Rizer, and others. Perhaps puffy-lipped Angelina Jolie is now too closely associated with saving the Third World to be considered fashionable. I do note that all the ads with lip-challenged models are for jewelry and perfume rather than makeup or clothes. Perhaps bee-stung lips would distract away from highlighting earrings or a necklace.
