NATIONAL LIPSTICK DAY
National Lipstick Day is celebrated annually on July 29. This is a day intended to celebrate the multitude of colors and types of lipstick. Whether sheer and light or dark or bright, today is the day for all kinds of lipstick.
Throughout the ages, controversy has surrounded lipstick. British Parliament banned it in 1770 calling it a devilish attempt to trick men into marriage. They likened it to witchcraft. Lipstick has been known to contain poisonous materials.
It is said Sarah Bernhardt created a scandal by applying “lip rouge” in public. Queen Victoria considered it impolite, yet Winston Churchill thought it was a wonderful morale booster during WWII and George Washington supposedly was a lipstick wearer.
