In Case You Were Wondering If All Lady Advice Is Made Up

My old friends at Yahoo are now touting A BOLD LIP for getting a man.

I'm so mock-confused! According to a Match.com on Yahoo article that's in rotation on the front page, today,  "Guys find pink or red lips more alluring than the sexiest pair of stilettos." (Which, by the way, not all guys find sexy either. My man friend likes it when I wear "sensible shoes," not that I ever do. What is he, my Mom?)

The SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE:

"Add a pop of red to that smiling and laughing mouth, and your attractiveness spikes even more, according to a study from the University of Manchester published in the UK’s Daily Mail. Researchers tracked the eye movements of 50 men and discovered that that in the 10 seconds after meeting a woman for the first time, the average guy will spend more than half of his time gazing at her mouth. If she’s applied lipstick, he’ll find it even more difficult to look away: a dash of pink can hold his attention for 6.7 seconds, while red keeps him fixated for 7.3 seconds. "

This is in direct opposition to that article from a few weeks ago that clearly said a "bold lip" makes a man's boner shrivel up inside of his body. That's a direct quote. Basically.

Now excuse me while I go shave my head off.
