Lipstraw / straw design


Many women may have an experience of having red marks on straws or cups every time they drink coffee or beverages.

However, it's also difficult to give up putting nice lipsticks just for the reason. Leaving red marks on the white or transparent straw can be embarrassing or cause unwanted moments at certain circumstances.
We tended to hide red marks by putting red colors onto the end of the straws.

By putting red colors onto end of the straw, women don't need to care about red marks no more when they drink coffee or beverages.
