National Lipstick Day (really!)

29 Jul

GS---BANG

Today is “National Lipstick Day.” At least that’s what the web and PR mavens tell me. So who am I to argue.

In honor of said holiday, I’ll share a few fun facts about the beloved product.

First off, it’s been said that the beauty industry remains afloat during a recession or when others are in turmoil because a woman can purchase one lipstick and feel like she’s had a makeover. Instant “feel better” status. I believe this.

Here’s a few you may not have heard…

  • At one point (1650 to be specific), some governments such as the British Parliament attempted to ban lipstick from being worn. WTF?
  • Wearing red lipstick early in the Greek empire signified a woman was a prostitute. It’s still a popular shade in the field, I hear.
  • Rumor has it, Elizabeth Taylor once banned all other women from wearing red lipstick on her film set. Actually, I’ve heard of way worse diva demands and dressing room riders.

 

Annnnd here are a few lipsticks worth trying if you haven’t yet.

RODIAL GLAMSTICK SPF15, Bang

Love this brand. Love this balm. It delivers gorgeous sheer color with SPF, is enriched with Vitamin E & Cocoa Butter, and has a light coconut scent.

BITE BEAUTY LUMINOUS CRÈME LIPSTICK, Fiano

This particular color is a distinctive lush nude. This is also my new favorite lip brand. In fact, it’s made with only food-grade ingredients and so free of all the bad stuff that it’s actually healthy enough to eat! Just in case you’re going on Naked & Afraid…you could bring this dual-purpose product as your “one” survival item.

TYRA BEAUTY LIP MODEL, Hater Blocker

Leave it to Tyra Banks to make a sparkly red and gold shade that’s a universal head-turner on everyone!

Happy Lipstick Day to all!
