The Unusual History of Every Thing

Mar 9, 2021

On this mini-sode, we look at lipstick’s colorful past and its connection to confessions, magic spells and the devil. Putting on the right lipstick can give a woman a sense of power and confidence that she may not have felt before, making her feel like a new-and-improved version of herself. You could say... it’s magic. Unfortunately, it was precisely that confidence and special something that women would feel that caused men in power to believe that there really was some magic in those little colored sticks. Why else would mild-mannered women behave in such an extravagant way once lipstick is applied? And who fiddles around with magic? Witches! And where does magic come from? The Devil!
