Pucker up, women. If you believe your lips are irresistible, there’s a chance you could go home with a basket of goodies.

The Merle Norman Cosmetics at 949 N. Main St. is having a Most Kissable Lips contest. It started Tuesday and runs through Valentine’s Day.

Store owner Toni Hicks said Merle Norman is having the event at all its locations. Three winners will be chosen at the store and will each receive a gift basket containing more than $50 in store products.

During the week, customers can sample one of Merle Norman’s lipstick shades and kiss a stationery note so that the lips are imprinted on the paper.

A group of judges will  determine the top three most kissable lips on Tuesday.  

Hicks will notify the winners by phone and have their names listed in The Lancaster News.

“I think we will have lots of customers to come by,” Hicks said. “I’ve been telling them all week about it and they’re very eager to come by.”

Lorie Melton, a regular Merle Norman customer, is going to try her luck at the contest. Melton said she likes lipstick shades of red and will have to determine which one will give her a greater chance to win.

“We’ll just have to see,” Melton said about her chances of winning. “That’s in the hands of the judges.”

Contestants, who must be 18, can come by the store during business hours, which are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.  The store is closed Sundays.  

For details about the contest, call Hicks at 285-1313.
