Usually an introduction to makeup wear, the lip gloss was first created by makeup pioneer, Max Factor, in 1932. The lip gloss was made entirely for cinematic purposes enhancing the look of any actress on the screen (black and white then).
Today, lip gloss is one of the most common and most used cosmetic products on the market. It has transformed from basic, clear liquid to an array of shades, flavors and effects: frosted, glittered, metallic, long-lasting or plumping.
As with variety of lip gloss finishes, they may also be applied in many different ways. Some lip glosses come in cylindrical bottles, tubes or other innovative packaging components and are applied with rounded or angled applicator wands (doefoot) or a lip brush. More solid lip glosses can be packaged in compacts or push-up tubes.
