As Elizabeth Taylor once said, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” – We’d like to use this Nostalgia Issue to pay homage and eternal thanks to the humble lipstick. These pigments of hope, fun and esteem have been empowering women (and men) since Ancient Mesopotamia (2500bc-1000bc) with more recently, in 1884, Guerlain producing the first commercial lipstick. Lipstick’s history is rich with innovation with the swivel up tube invented by James Bruce Mason Jnr in 1923 and Max Factor and Elizabeth Arden expanding lipstick’s colour range from the 30s – 50s. The positive social aspects contributed to the use of Lipstick is unmeasurable and spirits have been lifted upon application for years gone by and for years to come. We raise our lipstick dappled glasses in Lipsticks honour with this tribute by Anna Pogossova and Lydia-Jane Saunders.
