Lipstick; Love that Really Comes at First Sight

The story of cosmetic products is an old as the first civilizations inhabiting planet earth. It is known that women in primitive times used natural pigments to coloring their lips, as they are pictured in ancient hieroglyphs and papyrus. Lipstick much in the way we know it today probably dates back to no less than 5,000 years ago, based on Sumerian vestiges archaeologists found in the area occupied by old Mesopotamia, corresponding to southern Iran nowadays.


Lipstick and make-up was the signature of Cleopatra, the female pharaoh of Ptolemaic Egypt era in the year 30 BC, whose beauty has been legendary for thousands of years. Today, women still love to makeup themselves wanting to look like Cleopatra did. However, actual women are no longer wanting to wear as lipstick those primitive pigments obtained by crushing insects, plants or gemstones themselves. They want a modern lipstick, but with countless product brands, decision for one of them is not as easy as a piece of cake.
