Lipstick may just be a concoction of grease and pigment in a fancy tube to some, but for any serious girl it is so much more than a simple cosmetic. Lipstick, more than any other item of make-up, represents hopes, dreams, sex appeal, confidence, daring, make-believe. Lipstick IS womanhood and many women would not dream of facing the world without their lipstick carefully applied. Every time a woman purchases a lipstick she is buying into the dream that this particular shade and texture will make her lips look sexier and more alluring than she had ever dared imagine, even though she probably has several lipsticks in much the same shade. It is no surpise that lipstick sales outnumber those for other beauty products by 4 to 1.
Now comes a fitting homage to this most sensual of beauty products from a self-confessed lipstickaholic. LIPSTICK the book is much like the product - fun, sensual, daring, wicked and, of course, KNOWING. From the history of lipstick from Egyptian times onwards, to the allure of lipstick from a man's point of view, to lipstick in movies, art and history, this is a semi-serious study of what many would consider the ultimate accessory and an unsung influence in our culture. LIPSTICK also provides practical tips on how to buy and apply lipstick, what your lipstick shape says about you, what exactly it is made of, how to make your own, how companies name lipsticks and all the other tricks of the trade.
Beautifully illustrated with a plethora of pouting lips, and designed to look cute and desirable, this is the ultimate valentine to this emotionally powerful component of a woman's life.
