    I really enjoyed watching this video and learning so much about my FAVORITE Beauty product! At last count I have over 400 lipsticks and just purchased 20 more this weekend! I have every brand possibly made at every price point. I think I have a problem I just can’t get enough!! Thank you for educating me on my Love lipstick!!❤️❤️😍😍😍

    for the record, kabuki was a little scandalous especially in it's beginnings, but geisha were never scandalized. I would say it held less "scandalous" connotations and more like an ornamental performer type of vibe for Edo Japan

    Matt liquid lipsticks are a life saver. Nothing sticks to them like gloss and they come in a gloss bottle so no lid to just slip off when I don’t want it to.

    This is so 100% random but when you mention the bug being imported from Mesopotamia to be used as lip color because of it's pigment, it reminded me of that shot of Ursula in the Little Mermaid when she's trying to convince Ariel and she squeezes what looks like a bug and puts it on her lips. Lol!
