The real life proportion of lesbians that are lipstick lesbians is somewhat lower than what one might expect from watching television. The reasons for this proportional over-representation can include {{Fanservice}} (because GirlOnGirlIsHot), wanting to avert the stereotype of ButchLesbian (and the UnfortunateImplications that non-heterosexuals are [[GenderInvertedTrope "gender]] [[TransEqualsGay inverted"]]), wanting to present a lesbian character that won't "intimidate" viewers, and also wanting to avoid making said lesbian character's sexuality an excessively large issue by presenting her as a person who just happens to be attracted to other women.

* [[spoiler: Asami]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendofKorra'' is a lipstick bisexual -- even when she's in practical adventuring gear, she's always wearing makeup. In fact, she's probably the most feminine major character in the whole series. Her eventual girlfriend [[spoiler:Korra]] is more of a tomboy, but not quite enough to be considered outright butch.

* ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'': Gremma is openly gay, and while she's certainly ''aggressive'', she's not masculine. She's described as being positively lovely, and has an appreciation for the finer things in life.
