Lipstick lesbians who don't take the "girliness" to extremes can be seen as Distaff Counterpart to the male Straight Gay, while ones who do, depending on your perspective, can either be seen as counterparts to the Manly Gay (in terms of over-emphasizing the "expected" characteristics of their gender) or the Camp Gay (in terms of going whole-hog into "femininity").
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 their more masculine counterpart. However, the implication is that, while a "femme" would be attracted to a "butch", lipstick lesbians are attracted to others of the same type.
A good example is Showtime's television series The L Word, which presents most of its major lesbian characters in this way.
Most lesbians in mainstream pornography are also portrayed in this way.
