Pucker up and get ready — July 29 is National Lipstick Day! For many women, lipstick is a daily requirement. Whether you like sheer and light or dark and bright, this is the day to celebrate all lip colors!
It’s said that lipstick was invented around 5,000 years ago, with people crushing gemstones and applying the dust to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes.

It even ignited territorial demands from celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor, who allegedly told any other women working on her film sets not to wear lipstick. But lipstick isn’t just for lips.
