Over the many years makeup has evolved, it’s safe to say that lipstick has been the most consistent product. The colour preference may have changed from time to time but the lipstick has stayed true to every woman’s makeup regime. The product can instantly change your makeup game from drab to fab in a few seconds but it takes a little longer than that to manufacture this wonder product.
A brief background about lipsticks:
Lipstick is a cosmetic product which contains oil, wax, pigment and emollients. Emollient, in simple words, is a moisturising chemical agent that helps the lipstick glide easily on the lips during application. It helps in keeping your lips hydrated and gives them a smooth texture and protection.
The process starts with:
#1 Taking the rich and bold colours. We mean pigments.
#2 Mixing it with liquid solvents.
#3 Blending them together well to make it into a single formula.
