History of Lip Gloss

Lip gloss was first invented in 1932 by Max Factor, who was a pioneer in the world of makeup. The other cosmetic products invented by him include lipstick and mascara wand. The reason behind the launch of lip gloss was exclusively cinematic. He doubled the ‘oomph’ quotient of actresses by making their lips shiny and glossy in the movies.

Fun Facts:

  • LipSmacker, the first flavored lipgloss, was presented in 1973.
  • Egyptians invented lipstick over 4000 years ago!
  • Lips appear red due to the amount of tiny blood vessels underneath them.
  • Saliva has enzymes that break down food and do the same when they come in contact with lips. Thus, drying your lips out.
