Lips is the interesting debut of the first singing IP from Microsoft. A game with excellent quality peripherals, and with a great value-cost relation. Essential for parties.
In a broad perspective it will always be said that Lips doesn’t add much to the musical/Karaoke genre in which Singstar came out with success a few years ago. Mostly these are equivalent titles that are quite alike bur Lips is a successful bet for the Xbox 360 and a good starting point for future initiatives.

Lips is a very strong alternative to SingStar if you're a PlayStation-less karaoke buff, and throws in a bit more gameplay than its established rival
I have a feeling that Lips has plenty more cards up its sleeve, but the initial release leaves much to be desired.
Lips is sure to work its way up the chart, no matter how badly you want Auntie Glenda to put down the whiskey and stop bellowing out "Another One Bites the Dust.
Despite all its drawbacks, Lips succeeds in one key area, and that’s providing an engaging short-burst living room karaoke experience. The interface is remarkably easy to use, the initial track list is solid and the motion-sensitive light-up microphones are outstanding (although it remains to be seen how they will hold up with extended use).
Lips' wireless mics and excellent song selection make for an evening's worth of entertainment, but it has little to offer solo players.
