A little history lesson in lipstick.

Did you know in the 1780's, French women were encouraged to wear lipstick, as the 'plain-faced look' was for PROSTITUTES! Total inverse equation over there in yee olde England at the same time. Snoring old England. This moi would have definitely been on the first Concorde over to Paris. 

Also, why is there a picture of a bug on our page? That, my friends, is a cochineal beetle, which used to be crushed up and smeared on Egyptian lips to get crimson color. Yay for being born all modern and stuff.
