Lips (Don’t Lie)
A small bullet like colorful, wonderful smelling, soft, creamy article, is the best friend of probably every girl.
It brightens you up when you feel dull, it makes you sparkle when you look tired, it turns heads, gives your lips that succulence that it so deserves. As Miranda Kerr rightly eulogized it by saying. “I really love a red lip, especially when I am feeling tired, as it brightens my whole face.”
Sometimes it makes me sympathize with the men. They have no such instant mood and image enhancer like we women do! Everybody deserves something special like a Lipstick. It is a best friend that colors you bad, colors you mad, and colors you 'Red'!
The trend started with the Sumerian people, who invented a Lipstick made of crushed gemstones about 5000 years ago. They decorated their contours especially the mouth and eyes. It glittered and had gold! Their wonderful creation was not a feminine turf. Everyone and anyone could shine and sparkle during those times. Oh! By the way, they also introduced the much-loved eyeshadow!
The ancient world gave us language, music, folklore, tools, farming, and fire. It gave us those flammable lip hues that add more meaning to our lives. Not only wearing lip blush is fun, but it’s great to visualize the wearer as attractive and impressive. When John Keats said, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever" I bet he was not only talking about his girl but also about this great gift to womankind-Lipsticks.
To those who criticize makeup, I would like to point out that looking beautiful or the effort one makes to look gorgeous is not a poison. It's a way to express self-love. Like personal hygiene is important to every living being, luscious lips are definitely a priority for many.
I want to congratulate our ancestors as well as the cosmetic brands and makeup artists who work hard to enhance self-worth in women. Everyone can afford at least one lipstick. This gift to womenkind come in various price range and brands. Those who cannot afford it or prefer to keep things natural can color the labrum naturally. How about berry lips, beetle-leaved lips or for that matter beet-rooted ones? Never stop loving yourself and especially your lips as what you say sounds more pleasing when it is uttered from a beautiful mouth.
Although she died young, Carole Lombard’s words will live for ages, “I live by a man’s code, designed to fit a man’s world, yet at the same time I never forget that a woman’s first job is to choose the right shade of lipstick.”
