History of Rouge Baiser Lipstick

The History of Beauty: Le Rouge Baiser

Here's a fascinating excerpt on lipstick history from OnSugar blog Older Girl Beauty. Read and be edified:

We're going to learn about an almost mythical lipstick — the Rouge Baiser. I say "mythical" because getting information on these cult status lipsticks is as easy as getting a picture of Nessie in the Loch at sunrise on a Tuesday — damn near impossible. Now, I'm not saying it's not talked about, I'm just saying that I couldn't find an official page for it at its parent company, Deborah Milano, nor any other really informative pages out there. But it exists. I know that it does, because I have three of them (Thank you, Christmas!). The "Rouge Baiser" was created in 1927 by a French chemist named Paul Baudecroux. It was the first "indelible" or "kiss-proof" lipstick. In fact, it "dyed" lips so much that it was pulled from the market because it was so hard to remove.

To find out more about the mysterious Rouge Baiser, just keep reading. And if you have your own story to share, why not start an OnSugar blog yourself?
