Carrying a lipgloss is an essential for most of us on a night out but a new take on the beauty item could make it more valuable than ever. The 2LoveMyLips gloss, which will be available in Australia soon, comes complete with a pink taper which can detect date rape drugs in drinks.
Developed in the UK in response to the increasing rate of date rape in the country, the detector works not only in alcoholic drinks but tea, coffee and soft drinks.
Tracy Whittaker, the British business woman who came up with the idea, advises woman to be cautious if a drink tastes funny or if you are suspicio
Managing director of the company 2LoveMy, Tracy Whittaker, explained that girls on a night out with suspicions about their drink can just dab the taper in, and watch to see if the colour changes to blue. “If they turn blue tell your friends immediately and get help from security and the police,” she explained.
Commenting on the lip gloss concept, Roofie Founder Graham Rhodes said: “The Roofie Foundation welcomes any product that helps women to avoid becoming victims of drug rape.” “Over the years there have been many different tests and a wide variety of products that claim to prevent drink spiking, however we believe that the addition of a testing strip to a lip gloss is a major step forward in prevention.” 2LoveMyLips is also planning to make the product available in vending machines in pub and club toilets as this is where girls may need it most. Other cosmetic products are also planned by the company but all of them will come with the date rape testing kit included.
Still the mere fact products like this are out there should put potential drink spikers on the back foot
i have never encountered anyone who has had their drink spiked
