Big Lips On Rise Despite Economy

Friday, January 23, 2009

Lips make a person.
It's been said that most people can get away with funny colored eyes, perhaps an odd shaped nose, but lips?
You gotta have some presentable lips in a functioning society. Which may be why, despite our little recession-depression, botox-injected lips continue to hold steady, according to doctors. While the economic has put the crunch on face-lifts, tummy tucks and all kinds of body modification, big lips are sucking up ('scuse the pun) the void.

Those in the know say lip pumpers cost less than injections. So, people - men and women - are going the pump route to have fuller lips. In Russia especially are full lips enjoying a craze.
Now, why the craze, you may say? Well, for some they simply want to look younger (nothing like injecting collagen into the lips to bring back 20- 30 years), but for others they are just addicted.
Of course, I don't have to tell you that black women have been castigated, ridiculed and ostracized because of their round, full lips. But the question is why are people now trying to imitate what they used to denigrate? What changed?

I think they still hate big lips... on black women, just not on other races. Because anything like that couldn't possibly be attractive when a black person has it. It's kinda like back in the day (and still now) when a white person announcing or doing something made it official. You could've been repeating yourself til blue in the face and it wouldn't matter. Then enter the 'other' and all of a sudden, that's what's up. Unfair but when hasn't society played the double standard.
