National Lipstick Day
About National Lipstick Day
When is National Lipstick Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 29
Pucker up…..today is National Lipstick Day, a July 13 holiday. There’s no shortage of lipstick colors. While red lipstick is by far the most popular color, you have your choice of just about any color in the rainbow. And that’s not all, there are glossy, flavored, glitter, and many more lipstick options to choose from. So, apply your favorite lipstick to those sweet lips of yours, and plant a great big, juicy kiss or two on your favorite people.
Looking to attract a guy? On average, men stare at women who wear red lipstick for 7.3 seconds. Any other lipstick causes men to stare for just 2.2 seconds. Perhaps that’s why red lip has always been the most favorite lipstick color.
Lipstick has been in use for thousands of years, likely more than 5,000 years. Most ancient cultures used it in some form (often along with face and body painting). Ancient Sumerian men and women used lipstick. They used lipstick with embedded crushed gemstones to decorate their lips and face. Lipstick use is also well-recorded in ancient Greece, Egypt, and China.
Did You Know? The most expensive lipstick is Guerlains’ KissKiss Gold and Diamond Lipstick. It sells for $62,000 per tube!
