Single girls, listen up. A recent study by scientists at Manchester University in the UK has shown that men's eyes are drawn to a woman's lips within the first 10 seconds of meeting her. But don't worry about trying to emulate Angelina Jolie's sexy plumped pout, the study showed that thin or full, it was the women that wore lipstick (red in particular) that captured the most attention. Dr. Geoff Beattie, who led the investigation, said: "The practice dates back as far as the Ancient Egyptians, who used red lipstick and rouge to enhance their attractiveness. Our research suggests that red lips and perceived attractiveness are still inextricably linked, with red lipstick the most powerful attractor, and one that significantly increases visual fixation." I'm applying Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Colour in Cherry Red ($65) as we speak . . . Do you wear red lipstick? Will you? If you're already taken, tell us, does your man like red lipstick on you?
