What Does Your Kiss Print Say About You? A Lot, Actually, Says a Lipstick Reader

Describing a kiss is not always entirely subjective - "good" tends to mean you kept the slobber from reaching peak French bulldog, or that you refrained from baring teeth because you are aware this is not the time to show off your dental work.
