In this article, we will talk about a topic on which people do not even talk much- yes lipstick. So read this short factual article till the end.
Lipstick is a cosmetic that is applied by women on the lips in order to beautify. There are many colors and types of lipsticks available. Such as red, black, pink, purple etc.
The ancient Sumerians and the Indus Valley men and women invented lipstick about 5,000 years ago. The Sumerians broke or crushed the gems and used them to adorn their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes. Cleopatra is said to have used insects (carmine) to make her lips red. It is also said that the ancient Egyptians used lipstick to show social status.
Similarly, in the Indus-Sarasvati Civilization, women in the ancient Indus Valley Civilization used rectangular pieces of ocher as lipstick. Similarly, the Kamasutra describes the method of color and use of lips made of red lac and beeswax.
The Chinese also created wax lipsticks 1,000 years ago to protect the delicate skin of the lips. In Australia, Aboriginal girls used to paint their mouths red with ocher for puberty rituals. Overall you can understand how old is the history of lipsticks;
From China and Indus Valley Civilizations, the remains of lip-colouring items have been found, from this you can know how serious women were about their beauty even thousands of years ago.
I know, let me tell you a secret, I sometimes feel that these civilizations have ended because of these women…………….. Joking………….. Well what do you think………?
Well, it is believed that in the 8th-9th century, an Arabic Hakim Jarrah Abu al-Qasim al-Jahrabi made something similar to lipstick to adorn the lips. (Why did you do this, after all why)
I am sure that after this he must have turned from Hakim to Hakim.
Time went on but it never got social acceptance like that. No matter how, in Europe it was not considered good to apply lipstick.
There were many restrictions on it. Because many people thought that this woman is a witch, maybe she has come after drinking someone’s blood.
Yes, that thing is different that seeing many women, it seems to be happening even today………..
In spite of all this, Queen Elizabeth of England used to paint her lips red in the 16th century.
This red color was made by mixing wax and flower colours. This happened that it slowly started coming into practice.
Now put a queen and it does not come into play, can it be good?
In the late 19th century, the French company Gerle began producing lipsticks. And gradually his demand kept increasing.
Then came Hollywood actress Marlene Monron and Elizabeth Taylor What did she put on lipstick The trend of lipstick started almost all over the world .
This practice continues even today.
The waxes, oils, in lipsticks are made up of antioxidants. The wax provides the structure to the solid lipstick. Various oils and fats are used in lipstick, such as olive oil, mineral oil, cocoa butter, lanolin and petrolatum.
Matte lipsticks contain more filling agents such as silica but do not contain much emollients. On the other hand, cream lipsticks contain more wax than oils. To give a glossy finish to the lips, glossy lipsticks are used which contain more oil.
Shimmery or Frost lipsticks may contain mica, silica, and synthetic pearlescent particles, such as bismuth oxychloride, to give them a glossy or shimmering shine.
Black lipstick began to trend in the late 1970s, and black lipstick became popular in the 1990s. Before that, in the 1950s, actresses who starred in horror films wore black lipstick.
