Lipsology, The Art Of Lip Print Interpretation

Next time you send all your love in a letter sealed with a kiss, remember that you send a lip print suitable for personal identification, so think twice before you send it. Your lips may tell more about you than your words.

Just like fingerprints, lip prints can be used to identify a person. The wrinkles and grooves on our lips form characteristic patterns, which are unique and do not change during our lives. Hereditary factors may have an influence on these patterns. The lip prints of parents and children and those of siblings may have some similarities. It is also revealed that male and female lip print characteristics are distinguishable.

Lip print interpretation, or “Lipsology” is a relatively trustworthy, analytical method used to assess a person’s emotions, characteristics, energy levels and personality based on the size, shape, color intensity, and special markings of a person’s lip prints. Criminologists have used this method from as early as the 1930s, and scientists later systematically classified lip print types. Today forensic lipstick analysis relies on techniques such as microspectrophotometry, high performance liquid chromatography and energy dispersive x-ray analysis, and latent lip prints may provide cell remains from which DNA can be obtained.

Apart from its importance in the identification of individuals in criminal justice, lip prints can be analyzed in everyday life, too. Those who try it will surely have fun, and it is good for improving self-knowledge. Lipsology can help you identify your strengths and personal style. Similarly to phrenology or graphology, psychological characteristics may be revealed through this technique. It can help you understand yourself in a new way and also give you ideas about what to do with your life.

Jilly Eddy, the founder of lipsology started her carrier with collecting lip prints from friends and relatives. After years of studying and reviewing her sizable collection, significant patterns emerged revealing definite correlations between personalities and lip print characteristics. Jilly developed skills for reading and analyzing lip prints; catalogued her findings, created terminology (such as the “Hug Pucker” and “Cupid’s Bow”).

A lipsologist is a person who deals with lip interpretation, but she/he is an entertainer as well. Lip print reading is a fun entertainment for private parties such as birthdays, bridal showers, picnics, cocktail parties, or corporate events. If you have ever had your palm read, you know how enjoyable it can be. Lip print during a party can bring a lot of smile and laughter, and people love to learn things about themselves.

During a lip print reading, the lipsologist examines the size, shape, color and unique markings of a person’s lips. It isn’t as simple as it seems – there are 25 main categories and over 100 subcategories of lip prints. It is also good for those looking for a new lipstick shade, because lipsologists bring several (sterile) lipsticks to try and also and “kiss cards” that guests get to keep as a lasting memento of the happening.

Lipsology will not give anyone scientific proof, but since it is based on many years of observation, there are truths in it. In addition, Eddy says, making lip prints for a loved one adds fun, romance and sentimentality to an increasingly pragmatic world.
