Grecian prostitutes historically wore red lipstick to signify they would perform oral sex. If a prostitute “appeared in public without their designated lip paint they could be punished for improperly posing as ladies”. In 1770, a British law was almost passed that would annul a marriage if the woman wore lipstick before her wedding day, and tried banning lipstick altogether. The phrase “Kiss of Death” came from the dangerous mixture of fucus-algin, iodine and bromine mannite which the Egyptian women used in their listicks. It was a highly toxic combination which often led to serious illnesses and also death. During the Dark Ages, the Church linked lipstick to Satan worshippers and religious cults it didn’t like and so encouraged their prosecution. It was only with Queen Elizabeth that lipstick made a brief comeback in the popular parlance. In Mesopotamia, women and even men used crushed semi-precious stones to paint their lips. Cleopatra used the crushed beetles and ants to find the right crimson shade for her lips. Another way to color lipstick was to use the Carmine dye which was extracted from cochineal – a type of scale insects native to Mexico and Central America. Cochineals use the carminic acid to warn off the predators, yet humans use it to attract a mate. 💄💋
