Iran Women are fined for Lipstick Cosmetics!

  • Posted on July 4, 2010 at 7:44 pm

The women in Iran are fined for wearing cosmetics. When they look in the mirror, they are not checking their look for cosmetics, they are double checking that they have no trace of cosmetics on their face.

Imagine being fined for being too stylish.

Citizens who break the rules of chaste behavior are being fined. Fines are raised up to $1300. Imagine paying $10 a finger for nail polish, $200 for having a suntan. All cosmetics worn are reason for fines and considered improper behavior.

They are taking it to the academic world, asking that students be failed if they participate in ignoring the hijab rules.
This hijab campaign is not new,it took a back seat during the controversial election but the authorities are putting the “morality police’ back in full alert.
We as American women are fortunate to be able to make choices for ourselves about the cosmetics and clothes we want to wear. It’s a good thing because I for one love my cosmetics.
Iran Women who wear lipstick cosmetics and other banned cosmetics and clothing will pay dearly for their choices. Authorities intend to enforce laws against wearing “improper” cosmetics and clothing.

History Of Lipstick Cosmetics

  • Posted on September 23, 2009 at 2:26 am

Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth, Marilyn Monroe, and modern women have one beauty product in common, lipstick cosmetics. Where would women be without lipstick?  Over the years lipstick ingredients have changed drastically. Lipstick cosmetic origins date back to 3000 BC, women in Mesopotamia used red clay to create lipstick, also henna, seaweed, iodine and bromine mannite, some of these ingredients were toxic.  Women were dying to be beautiful.

IN 5000 BC, the Sumerians used crushed semi-precious stones to make their lip color. Cleopatra of Egypt used lipstick cosmetics, hers were made from crushed beetles with a base of ants. Upper class Roman women used homemade lip color ,also.

Around 900 AD, Abu al-Quasim al-Zahrwai is actually given credit for creating the first actual lipstick. A wax base was created for the pigment, perfume was added and pressed into a mold. This was a giant improvement from little jars and tiny brushes.  Thank you, Abu for making the lives of women through the centuries easier.

During the Middle Ages lipstick still remained popular, but mainly in the lower class and prostitutes.

In the 1500’s Queen Elizabeth I introduced the trend of chalk white faces   together with red lipstick. The main ingredients they used to produce lipstick were beeswax and plants. Although lipstick became very popular during this time, lipstick faced a lot opposition from the church. The church considered painting faces and lips as the Devil’s work

In the 1700s lipstick was thought of as a devil’s tool to seduce a man, and in England parliament actually ruled  that women could be burned at the stake for luring a man into marriage.    After all, how powerful can pouty red lips be?  Lipstick is a potent weapon in a women’s arsenal, but luring a man to marriage might require a little more than our favorite lipstick cosmetics. Queen Victoria was against lipstick and in the middle of the Victorian era lipstick cosmetics were not popular.

The twentieth century brought innovations to lipstick cosmetics. Max Factor introduced the first glossy lipstick, of course a lot of this was seen on actresses in Hollywood. Maurice Levy invented the metal container in 1915, much like the ones use d nowadays. By 1949 kiss proof lipstick was developed and that was an exciting enhancement to the cosmetic industry.

The popularity of lipstick cosmetics increased as lip liners and lip bombs were developed.  The evolution of lipstick continued as moisturizing lipsticks appeared on the market in the nineties.  Lipstick lasted longer and more new and innovative colors were introduced.

Modern day women have lots of choices and Avon is one company that offers a variety of lipstick choices. Beyond Color lipstick offered in several beautiful colors with retinol and spf 15 so lips will be protected and   be more youthful looking.

Another great product it the Three in One Lip wand. First define with lip liner. Then add luscious color with lipstick. Add shine with lip gloss.   All three in one product which fits conveniently into your purse.

After all, what would women do without lipstick? On our low days, a slash of color can perk us up instantly and on good days your favorite shade can make you feel fantastic.
