For beauty and fashion, lipstick is fun, alluring and provocative! Lipstick or lip gloss is a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes and emollients that apply color, texture and protection to the lips.
Many types and colors of lipstick exist, with reds, pinks and nudes being highly popular. For a change of pace and a new beauty taste, I suggest the orange lip! Stylish, chic and hip!
Lipstick Fun Fact: Ancient Sumerian men and women were possibly the first to invent and wear lipstick, about 5,000 years ago. They crushed gemstones and used them to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes. During the Islamic Golden Age, the notable Andalusian cosmetologist Abu al-Qasim al-Zahrawi invented solid lipsticks, which were perfumed sticks rolled and pressed in special molds.
What color lipstick creates a more vibrant, alluring, youthful appearance than orange? The color orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow. Orange is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating the spirt.
