This Beauty Product Will Make You Feel Amazing

“If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.” - Coco Chanel

Cleopatra stained her lips with henna, Poloma Picasso donned her trademark red lipstick from the age of 3 and Marilyn Monroe caused a revolution with it. Lipstick was first massed produced in 1915 and was one of the few luxuries during the depression.

The craziest piece of history I uncovered is that in 1770, the British Parliament passed a law condemning the use of lipstick, sating that "women found guilty of seducing a man into matrimony by this cosmetic means could be tried for witchcraft." Yikes!

God bless our sisters in arms for risking their lives and reputations - giving lipstick the respectability it has today. Next to the little black dress, lipstick is the one cosmetic many women can't live without. It's a quick, affordable way to transform your image and give a confidence boost.

Lipsticks come in pots, sticks, and wand form; matte, pearl, gloss, cream - with hundreds of colours to choose from. Try a combination of colours to types to find your favourite! Fun names like "Fire & Ice," "Cherries in the Snow,", Viva la Pink," and "Midnight Orchid" will help you decide what vibe you're going for and the image you're trying to project. With all the colours, types, and names, to choose from, lipsticks are one of the most fun makeup products to buy.

The British Heart Foundation found that 26 percent of women feel more confident while wearing red lipstick.

Remember to grab a lip pencil - they are great for defining lips, and keeping lipstick from feathering past your lip line. Try a lip pencil one shade darker than your lipstick for the ultimate definition and pumping effect.

Before applying lipstick, always remember to keep lips soft by applying a lip balm - preferably one with SPF to protect them from getting dry and cracked in the sun.

Max Factor once said: "A woman who doesn't wear lipstick feels undressed in public." Now I, for one, am shy so if you'll excuse me, I have to go reapply.
