Boys Talk Lip balm, Lip stick, 'n' Lip Gloss

I was chatting with both female and male friends and our chat took an interesting turn. We started talking about girls' lips and why girls feel plain without anything on their lips. There are different reasons why girls wear lip balms, lip sticks, or lip glosses. The lip balm is worn to moisturize the lips and keep it from cracking and drying. The lip stick and the lip gloss are worn more for the purpose of beautifying the lips.

While the boys appreciate the gesture, they don't want to have anything to do with the lip gloss. Most of them absolutely hate the fact that girls wear such "sticky stuff which can be annoying when we kiss," explains one of the boys. Girls, take the hint. While the boys are not thrilled with lip glosses, they called lip sticks sexy and could overlook it except a black colored one. Lip balms pass in flying colors especially the minty ones. Now girls, are you going to ignore the complaints and ask the boys to shove it or are you going to be more considerate?
