It was in 3,500 B.C.E. that Red lipstick originated in the Sumerian region of southern Mesopotamia where red rocks, a variety of gemstones, were crushed into a powder to tint the lips red.
A trend of lip color of all shades also became popular in Ancient Egypt, where Cleopatra was known to wear lip paint created using crushed insects mixed into a vibrant paste.
To give the early lipstick a variety of hues, textures, and finishes, other additives, such as groundfish scales and harmful elements were used, some of which were toxic when applied to the skin, but over time such practices became a history.
Depending on the decade, century, or region, wearing lipstick has been of social importance and has carried with it a multitude of meanings such as being alluring, a proclamation of social status, or a performance of wealth, an admission of wickedness, vanity, or a failing of morality, show of elegance or a visual statement of confidence, dependent till the present times on the beliefs of the social conventions of the era. For example, at one point in Roman history, men regularly took to wearing lip color, red and otherwise.

The packaging of this product underwent various changes from Ancient Egypt the lip color was mixed in pots leading to the present typical lipstick package of a bullet with a cap and a twist-up mechanism, first patented in 1923 by Nashville, Tennessee-native James Bruce Mason Jr.
