Read My Lipstick...

Pucker up! I can ID my friends' lip prints!
Red clay and rust were the first order of business used to tint the lips of ancient ladies. Cleopatra wore crushed carmine beetles (with ants!)... I can just picture her commanding Caesar, “Kiss me, you fool!” 

Enterprising ingenues created shimmering effects rubbing fish scales on their mouths, mmm. By Medieval times, lipstick was banned by the church; worn only by prostitutes, those foot soldiers of Satan.

SWAK! This foot soldier is on an eternal quest for the perfect pout; aren’t we all? What’s your favorite lipstick?
