Happy Lipstick Day: A blog post dedicated to lipsticks and lipstick lovers.

Hey gorgeous ladies,

Lipsticks hold a very special place in my life. When I was small, I always wanted to wear my Maa’s lipstick. It felt really magical and that bullet meant much more than a waxy bit of color. It was one of my very first attempts of wanting to look as beautiful as my mother. She only had one lipstick in her stash, a dark red one, and yes, my love for red lipstick started from then.



Even in my late teenage days, when things seemed difficult, I used to stand in front of mirror, smile and kept putting on lipstick. I knew it wouldn’t solve all the problems, but it is a pretty great start to feeling good…although for a little while.


So on 29th July i.e the National Lipstick Day, let us revive all those memories we had since childhood with lipsticks. And in this post, I’ll also give you a glimpse of some facts about lipsticks that you might have not heard/read before.
So put on some lipstick and enjoy the post…

FUN FACT 1:-
The first manmade lipsticks appeared around six thousand years ago in Ancient Mesopotamia. Women of upper class Mesopotamians decorated their lips with crushed semi-precious stones. Egyptians made a red dye for their lips from a combination of bromine mannite, iodine and fucus-algin. Whereas Cleopatra, who was an ardent lover of red lips, used to apply a mixture of crushed carmine beetles and ants to color her lips.

FUN FACT 2:-
Early in the Greek empire, if a woman was seen wearing red color on lips then it signaled that she was a prostitute.

FUN FACT 3:-
During Roman Empire, Lipsticks were worn to indicated one’s social status. Even men didn’t shy away from wearing color on their lips to their social status. The same scenario was there in ancient Egypt as well.



FUN FACT 4:-
It is said that lipstick sales increase statistically when weather is gloomy. I don’t doubt it at all.

FUN FACT 5:-
Elizabeth Taylor didn’t allow anyone else to wear red lipstick on her sets, because only the siren can flaunt siren red on lips.



FUN FACT 6:-
