Lip care products were some of the first cosmetic products used. Lip paints made by the Mesopotamians date back to 3500 B.C. In New England, Puritan women frowned on the use of cosmetics in general. However, they made lip balm recipes out of crushed rose petals to soothe and color their lips. Lipstick, as we know it today, was first introduced in Paris in 1910. It is now the most commonly used and purchased cosmetic product in the world.

Lip glosses and balms are a vital part of your beauty collection. They are also a cinch to create. The majority are made by simply melting together two or three ingredients. I like to use lip glosses under and over lipstick, as many lipsticks can be slightly drying.

Lip glosses and balms have a long shelf life and will last for at least a year.
