Lipstick on your wine glass

Did you know this little Gourmet-esque tip? If you're drinking wine at dinner, and don't want to get lipstick on your glass (which both looks icky and removes your color), here's a trick: Simply lick the edge of the glass quickly right before you take a sip. Voila!

I usually lick my lips before I drink... it works the same, and possibly looks sexier than licking your glass. Heehee!

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

now i have an excuse to drink tonight...i'm going to throw on some lipstick just for the occasion :)

Anne Marie said...

i'll have to try that for sure - but discreetly? that'll be a challenge.........

Lizardo Art said...

I wish I could politely pass this tip on to the women where I tend bar. I wouldn't mind cleaning less lipstick off of glasses.

Kelly Merrill said...

nice! love it!

Sarah said...

hmm.. interesting. i'm wondering how to pull this off without grossing out your fellow drinkers?

Joanna Goddard said...

you just have to lick it really quickly, so just take your first sip glass when your friend is looking down or at the menu or whatever -- it takes like .001 seconds, so it's surprisingly subtle! :)

Genius. :-)

The Fab Miss B said...

I've often wondered about this- now it seems so obvious that I'm a bit embarrased!

jones said...

first how to open a banana and now this. amazing!

k_darling said...

hah! That's great. Now if only I could keep from eating lipstick when I wear it. I'll stick to gloss for now.

Carol said...

Heidi said...

Oh, I'm a serial wine-glass licker. Works like a charm!

The Wife of an Artist said...

Great to know. I had taken some photos of a glass of Prosecco I was drinking it had yucky lipstick on it. I will definitely remember this in the future.

Oh it's so funny! I've actually always done that naturally without realizing it was an actual "tip." Love it!

simplesong said...

Teresa @ good-grace said...

oh my! Great tip! It may take a bit of practice on my part, though. (p.s. thanks for the tip on the online music/pandora.com!)

Feather Gold said...

After having been reminded that I love wearing red lipstick, this is a fantastic piece of advice. Tonight, my wine glass will be lipstick free! Thanx!

Rebecca (Dog-Eared) said...

Shanna Suburbia said...

Brilliant! I never would have thought of that.

Liz said...

I'd like to steal this girl's outfit! Stunning! Except... is that a cigarette in her hand? Yucky. That's one European habit I can never get used to!

Amanda said...

I would so get caught doing this and look like a weirdo. It's a genius little tip though.

That's so helpful, thanks Joanna!

Cookie Cutter said...

Hey, of all the methods I've heard, yours makes the most sense! Gonna try it :)

the photo is lovely - but so many of Garance's and the sartorialists' make smoking look glamorous - and that breaks my heart. it is killing people, its not a fashion accessory.

Zenkichi said...

randi bergman said...

'hey, just because im licking my glass doesnt mean i want to sleep with you'...ha!

I really love the lipstick, when i go shopping i prefer to choose a quality lipstick that doesn´t cause any damage in my lips. I take care my lips too much, because i thik this is the sexiest part of our body. So when i feel sexy is better the man buy viagra
