National Lipstick Day 💄

In celebration, here’s a little history on lipstick:

According to the book “Read My Lips: A Cultural History of Lipstick,” Queen Schub-ad of Mesopotamia made a paste from white lead and crushed red rocks to color her lips, from there she created a lipstick. It made its way to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Somehow it survived through the Middle Ages and Italian Renaissance.

In 1927, French Chemist, Paul Baudercroux invented a formula he called ‘Rouge Baiser’ considered to be the first kiss-proof lipstick. Ironically, Rouge Baiser was long-lasting that it was banned from purchasing after being considered too hard to remove.

In the 1930’s another element of lipstick formulas’ was invented by cosmetic company Max Factor. The lip gloss!

By the 1950s, chemist Helen Bishop invented a new version of long-lasting lipstick called ‘No-Smear Lipstick‘.

In 1973 Bonnie Bell introduced, ‘Lip Smackers’, flavored lipstick. These became an instant hit for the younger consumers.

In modern times, the variety of colors and formulas of lipsticks available are outstanding. According to a survey, on an average, women in U.S. spend more than $3500 dollars on lipstick in their lifetime.

National Lipstick Day is an annual event that falls on July 29th. As of 2016, award-winning beauty blogger, entrepreneur and International Businesswoman, Huda Kattan was named the modern-day founder of National Lipstick Day. Lipstick wearers like to celebrate this day by purchasing a new shade of lipstick or just wear an old favorite.

Bite Beauty Lipstick

Sephora is having the Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick on sale for half price. I brought Cava and Winx. Although I like both colors, the results weren’t so great. It doesn’t last long since it’s more like a lip gloss. So if you’re a lip gloss type of person then this is definitely a must have.

🍩National Donut Day🍩

Mmm….donuts as Homer Simpson would say. This later became a popular phrase used by many. These fresh baked goods inspired The National Donut Day during the Great Depression in 1938 by The Salvation Army.
To celebrate NDD I’ve decided to post some donut makeup that you can’t actually eat but wear. The exclusive I Heart Revolution collection (only available at ULTA) has five intensely pigmented shadows in matte and shimmer finishes. The palette is sugar-coated with a squishy exterior, the eye shadows have a scrumptious scent sweetening the mix even more. Best of all, it’s vegan and cruelty-free.
