We have lots to thank the Sumerian civilization for--the invention of the wheel, sail boats, amazing irrigation systems, the concept of the city* and lastly, lipstick. From 2500 to 1000 BC. the ancient Mesopotami (modern-day Iraq and Kuwait), used pulverized semiprecious stones and jewels to make pastes for beautifying the lips and skin. Dried insects such as the cochineal (used to make carmine), berries, and clay were also used to create pigments and were quite readily available to all as they did not require money nor chemicals to produce. It is said the Sumerian Queen Shub-ad preferred a mixture of crushed red rock and white lead.
Travel size minis are always useful. Keep'em in your gym bag, the overnight "boyfriend" bag, your purse or even... y'know... travel bag! If you're a pro artist, mini size versions are perfect for set bags or creating neat and organized "actor bags".
Note: I do not get paid to post or promote ANY products whatsoever. These are simply my personal favorite items that I wouldn't leave without!

My vintage lipstick collection is growing ♥️ decided to label them for y’all in case you wanted to do some research. Notice the Coty case on the bottom. It’s so tiny compared to a tube today!! It’s smaller than my pinkie finger. I traced it to about 1930 but it may be older. I got it for a song- $8! Definitely a prize for me.
