Smoker's Lines also know as lipstick lines are vertical lip lines that develop over time.
Smokers lines also know as lipstick lines are found on the top and sometimes the bottom lip.

The lines are exaggerated by the actions of smoking, However, anyone who shapes their lips into a pout will have the same effect.
Many people today a researching the appearance of smokers lines. These stubborn and sometimes deep wrinkles are caused by a variety of factors, including age, genetics, repetitive lifestyle habits, and in some clients, smoking.

These lines can be hereditary, for example, if your parents have/had vertical lip lines, then it is likely that you will also develop them. When lipstick is applied it can bleed into the lines and actually highlight the problem.
