There’s just something iconic about lipstick. While your Aunt Fanny with Her lipstick smeared teeth may have put you off to it,you’ll find that the right swipe of this pigmented beauty product has a strange way of making you feel better and more powerful, even sexy. Whether it’s a red lip announcing your presence in the room or the icing on your makeup sundae, lipstick changes lives. Not literally of course, but something about it harkens back to the more glamorous days of Woman kind. I’m telling you, put on a pair of big glasses and a swipe of rouge and someone will mistake you for a movie star on the local bus(true story). Not enough Women realize or “harness,” the power of lipstick. Many old Hollywood stars took advantage of its benefits and during the war in the 1940’s “Rosie the Riveter,” was coined to describe the power woman who had Her hair and lipstick in place to do any job regardless of difficulty. Now if that’s not some badass feminism I don’t know what is! It’s about time more of us besides Marilyn Monroe and Gwen Stefani enjoyed the “power of lipstick.” Therefore, continue on to check out some shades!
