A lipgloss that doubles as an anti-rape device has gone on sale to protect women from drink-spiking.

The 2LoveMyLips concept was today welcomed by campaigners trying to prevent 'date-rape'.

The lipgloss, which will cost £9.99, comes with special test strips which turn blue immediately when signs of substances such as GHB or ketamine are present.

Businesswoman Tracy Whittaker and partner Tina Dutton created the product and are in discussions with Boots and Tesco.

Ms Whittaker said: 'If a drink tastes funny, or you are suspicious, you dab the ends of the taper into your drink and, if they turn blue, tell your friends immediately and get help from security and the police — it’s that simple.'



Anti-drug rape campaigners the Roofie Foundation said an estimated 9,887 people in Britain have been victims of drug rape and the overwhelming majority are women.

Graham Rhodes, the charity’s head, said the kit would help raise awareness among women.

He said: 'We hope this creates awareness of the problem. There are still so many people who don’t realise drink-spiking is going on.'
