National Lipstick Day is celebrated on the 10th of July every year to celebrate and promote the use of lipstick, an aesthetic product that implements different types of colors, gives consistency, feel, as well as protection to the lips. Once considered as an unethical and impolite cosmetic product, it is now socially most accepted and most widely used beautification tool used by the women (sometimes and in some countries men) from all the cultures. Its use is now so widely spread that according to a research 80% of the American women today wear lipstick. Its use was banned by the British parliament in the year 1770 calling it a “devilish attempt to trick men into marriage”. Throughout the history, different people had different views about the use of lipstick. It was considered as “impolite” by Queen Victoria on one hand and was considered as a great confidence enhancement tool for the soldiers fighting WWII by Sir Winston Churchill on the other. So, the National Lipstick Day is also intended to celebrate and commemorate the long and romantic history of the lipstick.
The day often confused with the National Red Lipstick Day and National Bright Pink Lipstick Day. However, both of them should not be confused with the National Lipstick Day because both of them are awareness campaigns former against the sexual violence and the latter one is a movement to raise awareness and education among masses.
