She dresses and acts in a manner that is considered conventionally feminine, and likes "feminine" things, like wearing lipstick--and other females. Main-character lesbians on TV tend to fall into this category more often, as it's often seen as "safer", unless the show is going for "edgy". They also often have things like long fingernails, unlike [[ButchLesbian their more masculine counterpart]].

A related term is "femme". However, the implication is that, while a "femme" would be attracted to a "butch", lipstick lesbians are attracted to others of the same type. Also note that in LGBT communities, lipstick lesbians tend to be described as "more feminine" than average straight women or whose expression of femininity is "over-the-top". Creator/EllenDeGeneres jokingly coined the term "chapstick lesbian" to describe those who fall somewhere in between the two extremes of "lipstick" and "butch".

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 implication 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.

Related to the opposite of ButchLesbian, a high femme. Related to, and their frequent representation is perhaps a direct result of, GirlOnGirlIsHot. See SchoolgirlLesbians, another form of catering to {{Yuri Fan}}s via character type. Lipstick lesbians who don't take the "girliness" to extremes can be seen as DistaffCounterpart to the male StraightGay, while ones who do, depending on your perspective, can either be seen as counterparts to the ManlyGay (in terms of over-emphasizing the "expected" characteristics of their gender) or the CampGay (in terms of going whole-hog into "femininity"). MasculineFeminineGayCouple is for when this type of woman is paired with a more butch one.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'': Riko Saikawa is a girly girl (though she has [[GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak a noticeable tomboy streak]]) who's in love with Kanna.
* Michiru Kaioh/Sailor Neptune from ''Franchise/SailorMoon''; however, with her girlfriend being the more [[ButchLesbian masculine]] Haruka Ten'oh/Sailor Uranus, some might say it would be more accurate to describe her as 'femme'. Naturally, most international dubs of the [[Anime/SailorMoon first anime]] [[DubText attempted]] [[KissingCousins to]] censor this aspect of her character.
* ''Manga/KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'':
** Yasuna is very feminine and only has eyes for Hazumu. It's unclear if she is actually a lesbian or if the fact she DoesNotLikeMen [[spoiler:due to being unable to ''see'' them clearly]] is why she leans towards girls, however she doesn't show any interest in men. Yasuna contrasts with Hazumu's other love interest, who is a TomboyWithAGirlyStreak.
** Hazumu likely counts too. She was originally a boy but after being accidentally killed by aliens he was brought back as a girl. Even prior to the incident, she was InTouchWithHisFeminineSide.
* Minto of ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'', but when she says she loves Zakuro it could mean either romantic love or just the obsessive admiration for the celebrity and OneeSama, and she's [[BiTheWay clearly into boys too]].
** On the other hand, there's no other explanation for Corina from the English dub, and unlike Minto, she [[NoBisexuals shows no interest in boys at all]].
%%* Lavinia from ''SoukouNoStrain''. Bunny suit, anyone? And let's not get started on episode seven.
* Akko and Mari from ''Manga/GirlFriends''. Particularly prevalent since much of the plot includes shopping for clothes, getting makeovers, and hairstyling.
* Hazuki from ''VisualNovel/YamiToBoushiToHonNoTabibito'', who has long billowy black hair, a pretty seifuku, stunning blue eyes, and is just slightly gayer than an entire pride parade reenacting the Rocky Horror Picture Show. The object of her affections is even more feminine, though bi- or pan-sexual.
* Yamato from ''Manga/{{Loveless}}'' acts as the more "femme" of the female Zeroes, as opposed to her fighter Koya.
%%* Pretty much every [[CastFullOfGay character]] in ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic'' except Amane.
* Himeko and Chikane in ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'' though Himeko is arguably bisexual. Chikane is an {{Ojou}} and Himeko is equally as feminine, though not as refined.
* [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship Arguably]] [[CastFullOfGay most]] of the ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' cast. Sachiko is implied to be gay and is the embodiment of a feminine {{ojou}}.
%%* ''IonoTheFanatics'' is overflowing, with Iono-sama leading the pack/harem. Actually, almost every female ever drawn by Creator/MiyabiFujieda fits in here.
* Nobara Yukinokouji from ''Manga/InuXBokuSS'' is an attractive woman who works as a bodyguard, and tells [[ShanaClone Ririchiyo]] that she would love to be in a sexual relationship with her. She also demonstrates her more feminine aspects by helping Ririchiyo with her hair in episode 3.
%%* Every lesbian in [[TheBeautifulElite the works]] of Chi-Ran.
* ''Anime/VariableGeo'': Ayako Yuuki works as a floor dancer at [=SoTO=] Techno Rave Club and dresses accordingly, in a haltertop, [[DangerouslyShortSkirt a mini-skirt]] with suspenders, and [[CombatStilettos high-heels.]] Her official character bio, states that she's not only a lesbian, but has entered the VG tournament as an excuse to see as many naked womens' bodies as possible[[note]]the rules of the tournament mandates that [[ShamefulStrip the loser of each match has to strip in the ring]] for the crowd[[/note]].
%%* Several characters in ''Anime/QueensBlade'' count, such as Luna Luna.
* Togo from ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' is a girl who tries to embody being a YamatoNadeshiko and is very into traditional Japanese culture. Togo is in love with her best friend Yuna, however Yuna is completely {{oblivious|to love}}.
* Nitori from ''Manga/WanderingSon'' is very feminine and would prefer to wear dresses and long hair if she could, though being a pre-transition [[{{transgender}} trans girl]] prevents that. Her girlfriend Anna works as a model and is a fashion savvy GirlyGirl. Anna [[BiTheWay is attracted to men]] but [[spoiler:admits that she is [[IfItsYouItsOkay perfectly fine with being seen as a lesbian]]]] as well.
* Maria from ''Anime/{{Canaan}}'' is all but stated to be in love with the titular character. She plays the GirlyGirl to the more masculine, ActionGirl Canaan.
* In the manga ''Maka-Maka'', Nene is a needy, SpoiledSweet, clothes-designing young woman to Jun's ButchLesbian.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Creator/DCComics's current Comicbook/{{Batwoman}} is a Lipstick Lesbian. She was 'outed' in a cunningly-written magazine interview several months before the character premiered, and her first comic appearance was [[LadyInRed in a stunning party dress]] that caused jaws to drop both in and out of the comic.
** Her portrayal changed somewhat between ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' and her stint in ''Detective Comics'', where she becomes significantly more [[Main/ButchLesbian butch.]] In the latter, she was established as having been in the army and wearing a wig in costume to hide her short hair. And, in contrast to the above, she shows a preference for tuxedoes over dresses.
* Karolina Dean of ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' is one of the most feminine members of the group. That doesn't stop her from liking other girls. She and Julie Power of ComicBook/PowerPack once dated (Julie herself is a bisexual). At another point, she tries to kiss her friend Nico, mistaking her as lesbian just because Nico said she's "done with boys forever".
%%* Victoria Hand
%%* Karma
%%* Moondragon
%%* Phyla-Vell
%%* Annabelle Riggs in ''Fearless Defenders''
%%* Kato in Dynamite Entertainment's modern-day ''Franchise/TheGreenHornet'' book.
%%* Thunder from ''BatmanAndTheOutsiders''.
* In the ''Bluntman and Chronic'' comics, based on the [[ShowWithinAShow Comic Book Within A Show]] of the same name from Film/TheViewAskewniverse movies, one of their nemeses is a lesbian called the Lipstick Lesbian.
* Sarah Rainmaker, from ''ComicbBook/Gen13'', although it took a while for her to truly come out as one. She is often actually seen attending protests and demonstrations on behalf of the LGBT community and has a tendency to lecture her teammates when they (often) fail to live up to her standards of political correctness. (Usually without much success.)
* Stormer and Kimber from ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' are both feminine and are a couple. Kimber in particular [[SmittenTeenageGirl falls for girls easily]] but is committed to Stormer. Kimber's bandmates (and sisters) don't care about their relationship but Stormer's hate her dating a Hologram.
* In ''{{ComicBook/Circles}}'', Gus the ButchLesbian's girlfriend Lucy is this.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* Sydney Krukowski from ''ComicStrip/DykesToWatchOutFor'' refers to herself as femme, although the way she looks and acts isn't that different from her girlfriend Mo (who is sometimes considered {{butch| lesbian}}.)

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* [[spoiler:Gianna]] of ''Fanfic/{{Luminosity}}'' is this to the extent that no one ''notices'' until a female vampire mate-bonds to her. This was intentional on her part, though she doesn't change at all when she gets in an open relationship.
* For [[{{Manga/Bleach}} Yoruichi and Soi Fon]] fan-fics, Yoruichi is usually portrayed as this out of the pair, at least in terms of aesthetics. In terms of personality, Soi Fon tends to be the submissive partner.
* If only by virtue of them being the [[GirlyGirl most feminine]] main characters in the show, when Fluttershy and Rarity from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' are portrayed as lesbians in fanon, they almost always fall into this characterization. Rarity more so, since she is TheFashionista.
** In FanFic/TheUnexpectedLoveLifeOfDuskShine, it's [[spoiler:Celestia]].
* [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]] wears more makeup than nearly any other Disney heroine, has a knack for bedazzling her own clothing, and is commonly regarded as a gay icon, so naturally she appears this way often in fanfiction. Among her more popular CrossoverShip partners is [[WesternAnimation/{{Brave}} Merida]], who is butch in comparison.
* When she really makes an effort, Miss Alice Band of the Guild of Assassins comes over as this, although on a scale of one to ten (where one is the Butch stereotype) her usual placement would be around six or seven. On one Guild assignment, she had to pose as a circus high-wire artiste - which involved ''seriously'' glamming up. Alice Band, a very minor and largely unseen character in canon, is fleshed out in the {{Discworld}} works of Creator/AAPessimal.
* Erika and her Gym staff are portrayed this way in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines''.
* [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Alice Cullen]], as portrayed in ''Fanfic/AsDreamsAreMadeOn'', is squarely in the lipstick lesbian category, taking a great deal of joy and pride in her fashion sense and skill with makeup. The protagonist, Cass [[spoiler:or Bella]], isn't much of a lipstick lesbian in her own right, but her tastes do run to the femme side and she cleans up nicely.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Knockout plays with this trope in ''WesternAnimation/SuicideSquadHellToPay''. While she is an AmazonianBeauty, she is very voluptuous and feminine, so much men are not at all deterred by her height or appearance. She is also willing to use [[FemmeFatale seduce her male targets to get what she wants]] and favors a very revealing ChainmailBikini as costume. Her girlfriend Scandal Savage on the other hand is a ButchLesbian (even referred like that InUniverse).

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
%%* Explained to the audience in ''Relax, it's just sex''.
* Judy Squires in ''Film/BetterThanChocolate'', who is also a [[{{Transgender}} trans woman]]. Frances, the woman she's in love with, is more of a "chapstick lesbian". Maggie, the main character, is pretty femme-y as well.
%%* Luce in ''Film/ImagineMeAndYou''.
%%* Annabelle and Simone in ''Loving Annabelle''.
%%* Emily in ''Pretty Persuasion''.
* Lucille from ''Film/SinCity''.
-->'''Marv:''' Lucille's my parole officer. She's a dyke, but God knows why. With that body of hers she could have any man [[CompletelyMissingThePoint she wants]].
* Megan and Hilary in ''Film/ButImACheerleader''. Megan is the titular cheerleader, and Hilary, as the product of an all-girl boarding school, is prone to clothing reminiscent of school girl uniforms.
%%* Rebecca Gillies in ''Film/BridgetJonesTheEdgeOfReason''.
%%* Felice and Lilly in ''Aimee and Jaguar''.
%%** Though she does get into male drag on one occasion, as the real-life Felice sometimes did.
%%* Max in ''Go Fish'' (played by real-life lipstick lesbian Guinevere Turner).
%%* Evie in ''The Incredible Adventures of Two Girls in Love''.
%%* Margaret and Selina in ''Affinity''.

%%* Nina and Lisa in ''Nina's Heavenly Delights''.
%%* Alex Fisher in ''The Women''.
%%* Danni in ''Love and other Catastrophes''.
%%* Elin in ''ShowMeLove'' (her love interest Agnes is too tomboyish to completely qualify).
%%* Linda and her friends in ''If These Walls Could Talk 2''.
%%* Violet in ''Film/Bound1996'' - who is also TheVamp.
%%* The Amber Smith character in ''Private Parts''.
%%* Miss Blue Rain from ''Film/{{Precious}}''.
%%* Amy and Lucy, the main couple from ''Film/{{DEBS}}'' fit this character trope, though Amy fits the bill a lot more than Lucy. Ninotchka, Lucy's unsuccessful blind date also fits.
%%* Valerie in ''Film/VForVendetta''.
%%* Ricki from ''{{Gigli}}''.
%%* Polly from ''{{May}}''.
%%* Sheila Faxton from ''Film/Switch1991''
* Goth couple Medea Yarn and Hellabent from ''Film/OttoOrUpWithDeadPeople'' they wear long frilly dresses, make up and act very feminine all the time.
* [[spoiler:Jeanie]] in ''Film/OutAtTheWedding'' is one of these however she had been [[{{Gayngst}} in the closet]] and repressed to the point where [[spoiler:the movie begins with her [[TheBeard marrying her boyfriend.]]]] Her ClosetKey is a ButchLesbian named Risa [[spoiler:who Jeanie's straight sister originally payed to pretend to be her girlfriend, because she was afraid her family wouldn't approve of her black boyfriend.]]
* Magalie in ''Film/{{Intouchables}}'', much to Driss' disappointment.
* Miss New York in ''Film/MissCongeniality'', given that she's a ''beauty queen''. Her girlfriend too, evident in the brief glimpse we get of her.
* ''Film/{{DEBS}}''. Both Amy Bradshaw and Lucy Diamond pretend to be tough but are, deep down, nice, feminine girls who are very much in love with each other.
* In ''Film/LifeBlood'', Brooke and Rhea are models who are also lesbians. And, later, {{Lesbian Vampire}}s.

* Improbably, [[LampshadeHanging as is pointed out by some of the characters - including herself]], Jacyl from ''Literature/BlackDogs''. As an elven scout she's often weeks or months on end in the wilderness with no hot baths and limited pack space, yet she needs to carry several different outfits and makeup along with her. Her former guardian remarked that he first came across her while her house was burning down and that despite this, she was attempting to save her dresses. Her partner is the ButchLesbian, Sinai.
* Felicity Worthington, from the ''Literature/GemmaDoyle Trilogy'', behaves like an proper Victorian girl. There are very few hints about her true sexual orientation (subtext only). However, it is revealed in ''The Sweet Far Thing'' that she is in fact a lesbian and was in love with Pippa Cross. Probably due to the attitude of the time, she views this part of her with contempt and is in the closet about it; she seems to think that this means there is something wrong with her. Pippa is another example, although she also expresses interest in boys, so she's either BiTheWay or IfItsYouItsOkay.
%%* In the novelization of ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'', it was revealed that [[TheWoobie Imoen]] is one.
* In ''[[Literature/TheBeeboBrinkerChronicles Odd Girl Out]]'', published in 1957, the feminine Laura initially doesn't believe she can be a lesbian because she knows about homosexuals--"the men were [[CampGay great sissies]], and [[ButchLesbian the women]] [[ValuesDissonance wore pants]]."
* Several in Mary Renault's work: Valentine in ''Purposes of Love'', Helen in ''The Friendly Young Ladies'', Lasthenia in ''The Mask of Apollo''. Valentine, though, is bisexual, or basically straight but going through a phase. Helen, on the other hand, is more certain of her lesbianism than is her butch lover, Leo.
%%* Katherine Kopeck and Sam Saturn in Adam Christopher's ''Empire State''.
%%* Edie Bannister is a chapstick version in Nick Harkaway's ''Angelmaker''.
%%* Celeste Chalfonte and he lover Ramelle in Rita Mae Brown's ''Six of One''
* ''Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt'' has a 17th century example of this in her novel "De skandalösa", when the beautiful and docile Venus Dag och Natt turns out to be gay. She is way more traditionally feminine than ButchLesbian Nora Gripklo.
* The protagonist of April Daniels's ''[[Literature/NemesisSeries Nemesis]]'', to the point that she wears makeup more for the sake of it than to be beautiful.
* ''Literature/{{Manifestation}}'': The main protagonist, Gabby Palladino, is a teenage lesbian with a very feminine style in her clothing and personal tastes.
* Creator/SMStirling has a peculiar variant that recurs again and again in his books. His typical "Strong Woman" character will be both [[ActionGirl improbably athletic and capable in combat]] and [[TheLadette more of a man than the men]] -- Yet, at the same time, conventionally beautiful and gorgeous so [[HelloNurse every guy wants her and every girl wants to be her]] (if they don't [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer want her, too]]). Usually, she will be paired with another lesbian of the same type, though slightly less over the top, or else a more submissive and traditionally feminine (and equally gorgeous) one. Examples can be found in the [[Literature/TheDraka Draka]] books, the ''Literature/IslandInTheSeaOfTime'' series, ''Literature/TheShadowspawn'' trilogy, and even Stirling's ''Terminator'' [[Literature/T2Trilogy tie-ins]] ... In fact, it's rather few of his original series that do ''not'' feature at least one of these in a prominent role.
* ''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.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]

* Lexa on {{The 100}} is an example of this trope.
%%* Delphine from ''Series/{{Orphan Black}}'' likes to dress in very expensive-looking and feminine clothing.
%%* Cassandra Cillian of TheLibrarians2014.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Willow (after she comes out in Season 4) and Tara. Willow is prone to lots of "girly" colors in her clothes, and Tara seemed to prefer dresses.
* Ross's ex-wife Carol in ''Series/{{Friends}}'' is this. Susan, not so much.
%%* Season 4 of ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' has Gretchen [[spoiler:and Claire]]. Although this is more of an example of Lipstick bisexuals.
%%* Linda in ''Series/{{Seacht}}''.
%%* Alex and her fiancée Lisa from ''Mistresses''.
* The ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "War Stories" has [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Inara]] taking a female client (also of the [[LipstickLesbian Lipstick]] variety). According to Kaylee, this isn't the first time. Both Inara and the client wear fancy, elegant clothing.
* ''Literature/TippingTheVelvet'' had Kitty (when she wasn't dressed as a man for her Music Hall act), Mrs. Lethaby, Florence and Zena. The protagonist Nan starts off as a lipstick lesbian but becomes increasingly butch as the story continues.
%%* Zoe Tate and most of her girlfriends from ''Series/{{Emmerdale}}''.
%%* Edie from ''Series/SixFeetUnder''.
%%* Lana from ''Series/{{Neighbours}}''.
%%* ''Series/BadEducation'' has [[spoiler: Miss Gulliver]].
%%* Emily and Sophia from ''Series/{{Skins}}''.
%%** And in Gen 3, [[spoiler:Mini]] is turning out to be this, or at least a Lipstick Bisexual.
%%* Binnie and Della from ''Series/{{Eastenders}}''.
%%* Helen Stuart, Cassie Tyler, Roisin Connor and Serena Geeson from ''Series/BadGirls''.
%%* Bianca and Maggie from ''Series/AllMyChildren''. All of Bianca's girlfriends, frankly. Even the short-haired, bisexual Lena.
%%* Angela's NewOldFlame Roxie from an episode of ''Series/{{Bones}}'' makes it clear she's never slept with a man, while Angela is more BiTheWay.
%%* Helena Cain from ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' is on the far "chapstick" end of this (considering that she's a Goddamn ''admiral'', and a hardassed one at that, she's naturally adopted some distinctly masculine mannerisms).
%%* Jaye's sister Sharon in ''Series/{{Wonderfalls}}''.
%%* Many characters in ''Series/TheLWord'', which makes the occasional guest spots by real-life celebrity lesbians all the more jarring: they ''never'' look as Hollywood-feminine as the main characters.
%%** Creator/GuinevereTurner as Gaby Deveaux, Clementine Ford as Molly Kroll and Leisha Hailey as Alice Pieczecki are all as Hollywood-feminine as any of the straight or bisexual actresses on the show.
%%* Creator/LauraDern as "Susan" in the "outing" episodes of ''Series/{{Ellen}}''.
%%* Spencer and Ashley's relationship in ''Series/SouthOfNowhere'' takes up a considerable amount of [[CharacterFocus attention]] within the show.
%%* In ''Series/CoronationStreet'' , Rosie Webster refers to her sister Sophie as "Quite Feminine really" and happily says that she "Loves lesbians, especially the lipstick ones."
%%* Charlotte and Gina from ''Series/{{Hollyoaks}}''.
%%* Jo from ''Series/WaterlooRoad''.
%%* Urzula and Liberty from ''Series/FootballersWives''.
%%* Simone from ''Series/{{Passions}}''.
* DC Jo Masters from ''Series/TheBill'' has been described like this, although she doesn't really advertise it. Rather large in the chest department, she had Eddie (the male crime scene examiner) ask her on a date. She told him they'd go for a drink and she'd explain.
%%* Also Gemma Osbourne and lesbian call girl she had an affair with (played by Stacey from ''Series/{{Hustle}}''.
%%* Serena Southerlyn of ''Series/LawAndOrder'' - though we only find this out [[SuddenlySexuality 10 seconds before she leaves the show]].
* ''OutOfPractice'', a failed show on CBS, had a central character who screamed this trope to the heavens. She dressed provocatively, threw herself at women, and couldn't open her mouth without bringing up the topic of her sexuality.
* After her coming-out storyline, Beth Jordache from ''Series/{{Brookside}}'' (played by Anna Friel) was labeled as a "lipstick lesbian" by the British media, receiving equal attention from young women and young men.
%%* Both Camille and her girlfriend in ''Series/StargateUniverse'' are this.
%%* A minor character on an episode of ''Series/{{Reba}}'' is one.
%%* Carol in ''Series/{{Friends}}''.
%%* One use for the Dolls in ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}''. Also [[spoiler:Mag]] who is more of a chapstick lesbian. [[spoiler:She has something akin to a coming-out scene in the Epitaphs comic.]]
%%* Robin Gallagher from ''Series/DesperateHousewives''.
%%* Lindsay from ''Series/QueerAsFolk'' (played by bisexual actress Thea Gill).
%%* Susan from ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' becomes this after she breaks up with George.
%%* ''Series/{{Glee}}'':
%%** Another case of Lipstick Bisexuals is Brittany from ''Series/{{Glee}}''.
%%** Later episodes have it clear that Santana is a closeted LipstickLesbian with a rather... straight-forward way to keep her sexuality secret.
%%** Santana's NYC girlfriend, Dani, is also a Lipstick.
%%* [[spoiler:Angela Darmondy]] in ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'' turns out to be one, thought she might be more of a case of BiTheWay--she still seems to enjoy sex with [[spoiler:her husband Jimmy and has had presumably had threesomes with Mary and her husband]]. When asked if she was in love with [[spoiler:Mary]], she just replies "I was lonely."
%%* Sophie Webster and Sian Powers from ''Series/CoronationStreet''.
%%* Josh's sister in the American version of ''[[Series/BeingHumanUS Being Human]]''.
%%* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'':
%%** Fiona.
%%** Paige as well, when she was with Alex.
* Thirteen on ''Series/{{House}}'' - or at least lipstick bisexual. She wears her hair long wears stylish clothing.
* Emily on the TV version of ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'', in the book series she was bisexual.
** Her first girlfriend Maya also qualifies, although at first she seems more BiTheWay.
** Paige is more of a borderline example; she has various shades of a ButchLesbian in the first season, but the following seasons give her a complete makeover including [[LongHairIsFeminine long hair]], [[HotterAndSexier more revealing outfits]] and toned down her aggresive behaviour (well, most of the time anyway), which pretty much makes her qualify too.
** Shana, Talia, and to lesser extent- Samara, also fit the trope. Jenna is revealed to be a lipstick bisexual.
** If one counts the AmbigouslyBisexual, Allison and Mona also fit here.
%%* Lauren and her girlfriend Nadia on ''Series/LostGirl''
%%* Anne on ''Series/GoOn'' lost her partner, which is why she's in the support group.
* ''Series/{{ER}}'''s Kerry Weaver is more of a chapstick lesbian--attractive, feminine, but short-haired and abrasive--but her companions tend to fit this trope. (With the slight exception of Sandy, who despite her decidedly feminine looks, has a unisex name, is a firefighter, and like Kerry, an abrasive personality).
%%* A surgeon who is the POI of the week and her wife both qualify for this trope in an episode of ''Series/PersonOfInterest''.
%%* Lana Winters from ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryAsylum'' is this, as is her girlfriend [[TheLostLenore Wendy]].
%%* Parodied in ''Series/ATouchOfCloth'' with Ann Oldman and her various girlfriends.
%%* Reporter Louise Ellison in ''Series/HellOnWheels'' was sent west at least partly to keep her away from the newspaper owners daughter.
* On the Philippine teleserye ''Series/TheRichMansDaughter'', three of the four lesbians are feminine, namely the two principal characters Jade and Althea, and the latter's ex Wila.
* Lucy in ''Series/{{Dracula}}'' is a lipstick lesbian, while Lady Jayne is a lipstick bisexual. Lucy in particular wears copious amounts of ultra-feminine dresses, mostly in varying shades of pink and purple.
* Lizzy on ''Series/OneBigHappy'' doesn't show any stereotypical traits. Though considering the show is produced by Creator/EllenDegeneres, she's closer to a "chapstick" lesbian.
* Both Nomi and her girlfriend Amanita in ''Series/{{Sense8}}'' qualify, though that doesn't stop them from briefly participating in a [[ButchLesbian Dykes on Bikes]] event in the San Francisco Pride Parade.
* Marissa Cooper from ''Series/TheOC'' is a lipstick bisexual, though the show hinted that she might have only been bicurious.
* Amy from ''Series/FakingIt'' zigzags with this trope, as her entire plotline revolves around her discovering her sexual orientation and experimenting with gender performance.
* Margot Verger in ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' is very feminine, unlike her masculine [[Literature/{{Hannibal}} book counterpart]]. Alana Bloom is a [[BiTheWay Lipstick Bisexual]].
* ''Series/TheFamily'': Willa, who is never anything less than properly feminine. She's also completely in the closet and before getting involved with Bridey doesn't seem to have been in touch with her sexuality at all. It later turns out her brother Danny knew all along.
* ''Series/MurderInTheFirst'': Jamie Nelson, who is going through an acrimonious split with her wife.
* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}''/''Series/DegrassiNextClass'' has the feminine and frilly Zoe realizing that she's a lesbian. It becomes a big deal because people (including her own mother) don't believe she's gay because she's so feminine.
* ''Series/PhilipKDicksElectricDreams'': "[[Recap/PhilipKDicksElectricDreamsS1E5RealLife Real Life]]" has both Sarah and Katie, her wife, who both act indistinguishable from straight women, so the reveal of their relationship is surprising.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* They aren't above invoking HoYay for comedy, but The Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew is made up of two HeterosexualLifePartners who have even helped each other regarding relationships with men(Wrestling/JimmyJacobs and "Sick" Nick Mondo). However, Lacey and Rain's Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} merchandise tends to depict them as GirlyGirl lesbians and their [[DoesNotLikeMen man hatred]] is at its strongest on the promotion's shows.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'' As a dancer, Ayako Yuuki loves the spotlight and [[http://www.fightabase.com/charMain.aspx?id=303 dresses provocatively]] to draw attention to herself. Her attire usually consists of a short loose-fitting halter-top, [[DangerouslyShortSkirt a skintight miniskirt]], and [[CombatStilettos high-heeled stilettos.]] But she also loves the female body, so she enters the VG tournament[[note]]which is a women's only [[SupernaturalMartialArts MMA competition]], where [[ShamefulStrip the loser of each match has to strip]] in the ring[[/note]] to take in all the eye candy... in hopes of hooking up with one of 'em.
%%* Rain Quinn in ''VideoGame/FearEffect''.
* Veronica from ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. One of her quests involves finding a dress for her to wear, completely inverting RealWomenDontWearDresses as a result. Ironically, Veronica is also a WrenchWench, fond of making off-colour jokes, and her favored weapon is a power fist.
* Possibly Waitress Aurora in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', a character you go onto Ferris Wheel dates with if you play as Hilda. Her Japanese conversation [[BiTheWay mentions a boy]], but the English version excludes that. The Ferris Wheel dates are full of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar innuendo]] and Aurora's is no exception.
%%* Specialist Samantha Traynor in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''.
%%* Heather from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn]]''
* Franke from ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' is best friends with the canonically bisexual Kitty. There's nothing in the games themselves to suggest they're anything but friends, however [[AllThereInTheManual the "Campster" website]] (a parody of Friendster) suggests otherwise. Her "interests" list only Kitty, her favorite band is Music/{{Tatu}}, and her favorite show is ''Series/{{Ellen}}''. Both Franke's and Kitty's profiles list each other in an "open relationship" with the other.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Lambdadelta from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', the CuteWitch surrounded by pink and candy who only has eyes for fellow witch Bernkastel.

%%** Its sequel ''AoiShiro'' is all over the spectrum, from the extremely feminine Nami to the probably-transman Kohaku.
* [[spoiler:Misha]] from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo''. She's very feminine and even [[spoiler:has (explicitly [[DyeHard dyed]]) [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair pink hair]]]] and is a lesbian. She has deep [[{{gayngst}} issues over the fact]].
* Jaehee from ''VisualNovel/MysticMessenger'' is a moderately feminine character who becomes a lot more so in one of her endings, where the female protagonist is her special friend as she works up the courage to confess.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* A 'WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars' web-comic entitled ''Webcomic/{{Contrasts}}'', portrays Ahoska and Barris as this.
* 'Webcomic/WasteOfTime' has Scarlett.
* ''Webcomic/KurumisAfterHours'' has Nagi, who's madly in love with the titular protagonist, but is decidedly mellower and more feminine than the object of her affections.
* [[spoiler:Jessica [=McIntyre=]]] of ''Webcomic/{{Loserz}}''. See [[http://the-qlc.com/loserz/go/494 this strip]] which shows her with long hair and wearing earrings.
%%* Both Lia and Fiona from ''Webcomic/YuMeDream'' are definitely feminine enough to be considered Lipstick Lesbians.
* Amber from ''Webcomic/KhaosKomix'', with her perfect curls.
* ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'':
** Daphne. Her girlfriend [[spoiler:Sara]] sports a look that's part ButchLesbian ( BoyishShortHair and feminine-symbol jewelry) and part LipstickLesbian (appropriately, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin lipstick]]).
** More recently, main character Penny is a Lipstick Bisexual, while the other main character (and her girlfriend) Aggie is a lesbian but [[GranolaGirl too much of a hipster]] to really count as 'Lipstick'.
* Kanaya from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the troll's "bugging and fussing and meddling" TeamMom, with Virgo as her associated sign, is a lesbian and the only troll with an interest in fashion. Literally a LipstickLesbian in that her main weapon is a lipstick that sometimes transforms into a {{chainsaw| good}}.
** There's also Rose, Kanaya's girlfriend, who enjoys skirts, knitting, and trashy romance novels.
%%* Araceli from ''Webcomic/OutThere''.
%%* Adharia Kuvoe of ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt''.
* Girly lesbians are the dominant type in ''Webcomic/GirlsWithSlingshots''. All of the major lesbian or bisexual characters are prone to curves, makeup, and girly interests. Butch lesbians exist, but they have their own hangouts (one of which Jamie visits during her ComingOutStory arc).
%%* In ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'' Lisa and Ally become these and [[spoiler: Valerie, who criticized Lisa for having a girlfriend, is revealed to be this.]]
* Didi of ''Webcomic/{{Bomango}}'' is cute, perky, petite, extremely feminine, and a lesbian. Meanwhile, her {{Polar Opposite Twin|s}} "sister" Gogo [[note]](Didi budded off of Gogo which would technically make her Gogo's clone/daughter, but they consider each other sisters and have a sisterly relationship)[[/note]] is a towering, ripped BrawnHilda with [[LittleBitBeastly monstrous/animal-like]] features such as ''claws'', an ''extremely'' [[TheLadette masculine, boisterous, and violent personality]], and is straight as a board.
* ''Webcomic/TheirStory'' is about a tomboyish girl who falls for a cute girl from a neighboring school. The two protagonists are a ButchLesbian and a LipstickLesbian duo, and though they aren't dating currently it's a ForegoneConclusion.

[[folder:Web Original]]
%%* ''Literature/DecadesOfDarkness'' has Julia Gordon. And [[spoiler:First Lady Anna Mitchell, which causes a scandal in Columbia (the US capital) and prevents her husband from reelected for a third term.]]
%%* Tatjana from the ''Literature/ChaosTimeline''.
%%* Aster from ''WebVideo/AnyoneButMe''. Vivian is either this or a chapstick lesbian, depending on your perspective
%%* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Bugs (Bunny Cormick) is regarded as one of the hottest girls at a Superhero School, but is strictly lesbian. She's not the only such girl in Poe Cottage.
* Parian in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', who is a fashion student.
* Sloane in ''WebVideo/LastLife''.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Kirsten from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndSteveTheHappiestGayCoupleInAllTheWorld'', is intentionally the stereotypical LipstickLesbian. Ironically, some people ''still'' [[ViewerGenderConfusion mistake her for a man!]]
%%* Linda Memari of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is possibly bisexual, but she seems to be far more interested in her neighbor Francine than in her husband.
%%* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Meg poses as a lesbian to make friends and gets involved with a girl named [[PinkMeansFeminine Sarah]].
* Discussed on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', where a subplot involved Hank's driver's license now saying he was a woman. Peggy's hairdresser commented that if they were a lesbian couple, Peggy would be a lipstick lesbian, which is [[VanityIsFeminine "the best kind"]].
* There has been much controversy over the possibility of lesbian subtext in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', specifically between Princess Bubblegum and Marceline. If this is to be believed, Princess Bubblegum, who wears her hair long, likes to wear long dresses, and, um, [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation is entirely]] {{pink|IsFeminine}} would fit this trope.
* [[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.
* ''WesternAnimation/DofusTheTreasuresOfKerubim''; Simone and her virtually-confirmed girlfriend Julie are ''both'' this trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': As a side note, in general, [[DiscountLesbians Gems are actually genderless]] despite going with she/her pronouns.
** Sapphire, the composed, sweet, gentle Gem, who is in a committed relationship with [[ButchLesbian Ruby]].
** Likewise for Pearl, who's also of the discount type. She's [[LadyOfWar graceful]], acts [[TeamMom motherly]] to Steven, wears a [[TutuFancy ballerina-inspired outfit]], and she had a complicated one-sided love for Rose Quartz. Her [[WhatCouldHaveBeen prototypical designs]] were slightly less [[{{bifauxnen}} feminine]] (in particular the one used in the pilot) however her personality characterized her as [[CharacterizationMarchesOn far more of a jerk]]. As of the season 4 episode "Last One Out of Beach City", she's scored the Mystery Girl's phone number and was obviously attracted to her.
