Cosmetics like lipstick have been used since ancient times.

The ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, and others used lip color.

Queen Elizabeth I of England used a red chemical called mercuric sulfide, a pigment also used to make vermillion paint.

A cosmetic called rouge was used both as a lipstick and as a blush on the cheeks.

In the past, women who wore lipstick and other makeup were considered to be of poor moral character.

This began to change during the 1800s. Today, lipstick is often associated with beauty and perhaps fame.

Sometimes, lipstick is even personified as a character in its own right, such as Lippy Lips from the Shopkins toy line.
