    Interesting Facts About Lipstick






    >Most lipsticks contain fish scales.


     



    >Lipstick has been around since ancient times. Even the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra used it to make her lips bright red and supposedly sexy.


    >It is thought that this lipstick was made from henna which is used today as hair dye. The Egyptians also used a plant dye called fucus to get a purplish color of lipstick, but what they didn't know was that it contained mercury which is poisonous. That certainly gives a new meaning to the phrase, 'a kiss of death'.


    >Lips colored with henna remained bright for several days.


    >According the April issue of 'Ladies' Home Journal,' 65% of women use lipstick daily & 25% won't leave house without it. We're not sure where they got these stats, but they seem reasonable.


    >women began to apply lipstick in primeval times. Colored clay or berry juice served the very first lipstick at that time. But nobody knows why primitive women applied lipstick at all, either to attract or to scare men away.


    >In old times, noble Japanese women were not allowed to appear in public without intensive makeup.


    >It is astonishing but today beeswax is still one of the basic lipstick components.


    >80% of American women regularly wear lipstick.


    >Clinique's world-wide retail operation is reputed to sell one lipstick every second.


    >The first recorded evidence of lipstick use dates back to the Sumerian city of Ur, 2000 B.C.


    >Ancient Eygptians wore lip gloss.


    >The first modern lipstick with metal "bullet" case was produced in Waterbury, Connecticut, in 1915 by the Scovil Manufacturing company.


    >32% of women surveyed during a 1998 poll claimed that they owned more than 20 lipsticks.



    >The most important ingredient which creates a shiny film after drying that does not smear easily is the caster oil.


    >To protect your lips from the weather condition and keep your mouths soft and moist, a number of lipsticks contain aloe vera, vitamin E ,collagen, amino acids, moisturizers and sunscreen.


    >Use one sheet of two-ply tissue to blot the excess color then reapply and blot it again to absorb the excess color is the way to make your lipstick smudge resistant and matte.



    >Mature women should avoid matte lipsticks. You can make your lips look softer by applying little gloss and keep the lipstick from melting by using lip liner.


    >The best product for everyday use is a clear lip balm


    >Red lipstick or a very light film of pink offers you something which every woman desire that is the look of cheerful beauty.


    >The manufactures of lipsticks often use beeswax oils and fats such as castor oil, cocoa butter, lanolin, mineral oil, olive oil and petrolatum.
