KFC claims to have created a smudge resistant, chicken wing flavoured lipstick which will allow its wearers to eat without ruining their make-up.

The limited edition lipstick, called KFC Crave, comes in the shade ‘bucket red’ and promises to stay on for up to eight hours.

The lipstick was launched to celebrate both National Lipstick Day and National Wing Day which both fell on 29 July.

How is the product made?

The lipstick is made using distilled KFC Hot Wings for an authentic flavour, meaning the formula is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans.

It is also made from "dynamic blend” of KFC’s iconic Hot Wing chilli oils which is said to provide a gentle tingle to the skin.

A spokesperson for KFC said, "Not only does it taste lip-smackingly good, but it’s been formulated with a new eight-hour conditioning and smudge-proof technology that means it can survive a KFC wing-sesh.”

All the participants who tested out the lipstick said it stayed on during the consumption of two lots of hot wings portions.

Where can I buy the lipstick?

The lipstick isn't on general sale in shops.

As it is a limited edition product, there are only 400 available. KFC fans will have to win the product instead.

To be in with the chance to win you will need to download and sign up to the KFC Rewards & Offers app and look out for an email with more details on how to enter the prize draw.
