Lipstick lesbian is a slang term for a woman who is romantically and sexually interested in other women (that's the lesbian part) and also exhibits feminine traits like wearing dresses or skirts, high heeled shoes and makeup (hence 'lipstick'), sympathy, gentleness and sensitivity.

NB a woman who is a lesbian doesn't necessarily hate men, she just isn't romantically interested in having a relationship with a man.
Bob: 'Wow, that girl Janine is fit, I'd love to be in a relationship with with her'.
Sean: 'Sorry bob, she's a lipstick lesbian, she wouldn't be interested'.
Bob: 'Damn it'!

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

A feminine lesbian. It can be used interchangably with femme to indicate a feminine lesbian, but strictly speaking, a femme is usually attracted to masculine, or butch, lesbians and a lipstick lesbian is attracted to other feminine lesbians.

Often thought of as demure, submissive creatures, many, if not all femmes and lipstick lesbians are quite strong, independant women.
Hmm, what's this? Sex and the City, hairstyle and fashion magazines, satin curtains, a dress spread out on the bed... a picture of two kissing women dressed in Edwardian style? Looks like I've stumbled into a lipstick lesbian's love nest.

A feminine-type lesbian who is only attracted to other feminine lesbians. Not attracted to butch or masculine lesbians. Usually likes cats, cuddling, flowers, and affection. Also usually wears feminine clothing, long hair, very fawn-like and pretty. Would rather not have others thinking that all lesbians are butch-like and masculine.
(Any) "Oh my god, feminine lesbians are the cutest!"
(Straight horny men) "Hard to believe she's a lesbian!"
(Butch/Masculine) "Ughhh! I wish that was my girlfriend."
(Lipstick Lesbian) "If I wanted to date someone who looked like a man, I'd find a man."

A Lipstick Lesbian is a stereotype subset of lesbians. They are usually high fashion and wear make-up (something not generally associated with lesbians). Because they dress this way they will "appear straight", but are only interested in women.
She wore high heels, makeup and all the boys loved her, but they'd never know she was a Lipstick Lesbian and only interested in women.
