Bellissima! Joey New York Specialty Curb the Urges Lip Collection

The new Curb the Urges lip collection from Joey New York Speciality has me completely floored. Kinda like the nutritious lip glosses I told you about last week — except cooler — this line of lippies is designed to help you kiss your bad habits goodbye.

Using aromachology, which involves the effect of fragrances on the mind, each of the three lines are designed to battle a different bad habit:

  • LipNIX claims to help you quit smoking.
  • LipFIT is designed to curb your appetite.
  • CinnaMEN is supposed to help you attract the opposite sex.

All three collections include lip gloss ($15), lipstick ($18), a lip palette ($25), and a colorless lip balm ($12). For the details on each of the lines,

LipNIX is made from a blend of lemon, geranium, and helichrysum, which together stimulate the brain to fight your urge to smoke and satisfy your nicotine craving. They also help plump the lips and firm the area around the mouth that becomes wrinkled from smoking. They have cute names, too: My favorites are "I Quit" and "Kick It!"

LipFIT is infused with spearmint, peppermint, and grapefruit to help inhibit your urge to snack. My favorite names in this line are "Skinny Dip" and "Lighten Up."

The CinnaMEN line is made with cinnamon and vanilla scents, two fragrances that men are supposedly attracted to and which increase the presence of pheromones. This line also includes lip gloss duos — for double his pleasure?

For some reason, I'm more inclined to believe that LipFIT would work, but CinnaMEN just sounds silly. What do you guys think?

Wow, talk about a gimmick! I wonder if my Mentha Lip Shin from Bath and Body Works will help stave off hunger too, seeing as how it's all minty and stuff. :P

so couldn't we just burn cinnamon candles and get the same effect?

Hmm... Maybe i'd give lipfit a try.. I know most of the time if I keep regular old chapstick or lipgloss on, I dont want to eat or snack.. i guess its the slimy feeling, or not wanting to smudge..

I think it's strange how eating is regarded as bad habit. I think this is a reflection of societal norms today, not necessarily in a good way.

if aromachology worked, then by now it would be used by people. No wonder its not talked about and neglected.

LipFIT sounds like the old chewing gum trick. Keep your mouth occupied and you won't crave food as much. It still sounds fun though!
