Brief Answer:
No risk of HIV

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist).
I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
There is no risk of HIV through this particular physical contact. Kissing on skin of neck is absolutely safe and if you did not notice any blood while kissing on her neck, that means there was no blood or else you would have noticed it!! Even if we hypothetically assume that she had a wound on her neck, then also it had to be an actively bleeding wound and her blood to come in contact with your lips for her to pose a risk of HIV. Since you did not notice any blood or wound on her neck, so relax. You were not at risk of HIV from this incident.

Brief Answer:
Regarding risk of HIV

Detailed Answer:
If your lip wound was actively bleeding and you kissed an actively bleeding wound on her neck then there is a risk of HIV. Not otherwise. However you earlier said that she was not bleeding from neck!
