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.
