NYX What is: classic, bold, modern, and sexy all at the time? Red Lipstick

Historians debate whether Ancient Sumerians or Ancient Egyptians gave us the gift of lipstick; regardless of who was first, we thank you! Brief history lesson, red lipstick has been used as a status symbol for thousands of years now. Cleopatra used to crush up beetles and ants to create the perfect red. Centuries later, Queen Elizabeth I used red lips to shield herself from death. In the 1700-1800s red lipstick caused a fury as it was deemed inappropriate and only for peasants. The 1900s red lips were what we more popularly know them as now – bold. Finally in the 2000s, red lipstick can mean whatever you want it to.
