Do you know who invented the first Lipstick?
In ancient civilisations, makeup was a status symbol & both men & women indulged in applying makeup. Apart from aesthetics, makeup also had medicinal appeal.
Ancient Sumerian & Indus Valley men & women were possibly the first to invent & wear lipstick, about 5000 years ago.
Sumerians crushed gemstones & used them to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips & around the eyes.
Now, the variety of colours & formulas of lipsticks available are mind blowing, to say the least.
According to survey, on an average women in USA spend more than $ 3,500 on lipstick in their lifetime.
