Men do not favor red lipstick because it can get on their collar and faces; so save vibrant colors for your next girl's night. "But, they do like a little lip gloss to make your pucker shiny and pouty," Stanger says. "I love ones from Dior, Chanel, and YSL. Bare Minerals glosses have a bit of peppermint in them, which is great for close talking and kissing!" Warning: Make sure your formula isn't too sticky. No one wants to make out with a glue stick! Also avoid lip plumpers; according to Stanger, the formula can fry your lips."
