A long lasting fact

Monday, September 23, 2013

We often complain that our products don't stay put very long but Italian women during the Renaissance created the ultimate red lip and cheek stain by mixing cochineal, sandalwood or cinnabar with wax or grease. The application process was complex, but the red color lasted for over a week, even if she washed her face every day!!! Excellent!!
