Read My Lips

If eyes are the window to the soul, lips lay it on the line, putting the focus smack1 dab2 in the middle of the face.

A: Lipstick3 makes me feel sexy like a girl, like a woman.

B: It makes you feel more 1)feminine.

Little girls everywhere try on their mother’s lipstick and learn early on they can be 2)demure4 in pink or 3)racy in red.

C: You can put on a red and a pink and it truly 4)livens your spirit and captures who you are as a person day to day.

92,000,000 American women wear lipstick on a daily basis and millions of tubes are sold each year. According to the authors of Read My Lips, diamonds aren’t always a girl’s best friend.

Karen Kozlowski (co-author of Read My Lips): Not everybody can 5)afford diamonds but we can all afford lipstick. Can’t get the Chanel suit? But you could buy a tube of Chanel lipstick.

It’s estimated that the average woman buys about four tubes of lipstick a year but some women say that number is low.

D: I would say, five, five lipsticks5 a season would be on the 6)norm for me.

Lipstick goes way back. It’s believed that ancient Egyptian men and women went to the grave with lip colour for the afterlife and Cleopatra made a splash with her 7)ruby6 reds. Soon lipstick would earn an unsavoury reputation.

Meg Cohen Ragas (co-author of Read My Lips): In the 17 and 1800s you know lipstick was more commonly associated with prostitutes. The upper class you know, didn’t wear lipstick and then when they did they chose a pink colour over the more common reds.

And deadly trouble lay ahead for the colourful 8)cosmetic7.

Meg Cohen Ragas: In the 1920s there were some shady, 9)lethal8 10)ingredients in lipstick and in 1924 the New York Board of Health considered banning lipstick not because they were concerned about what it might do to the women who wore it, but they were concerned about what it might do to the men who kissed the women who wore it.

Talk about the kiss of death. Some of those ingredients included lead, mercury and even arsenic9. And that pretty colour, well, that came from crushed insects. The ingredients were later standardized10 and the passion for lip colour only grew.

Meg Cohen Ragas: Even during the depression it was interesting because things were you know, economic times were bad and lipstick was a real mood 11)booster for a lot of women and navy nurses during the wars when they had to 12)evacuate11 their submarines, they all said that the one thing that they brought with them was a tube of lipstick.

And after World War II beauty companies began selling lipstick in a whole new way.

Meg Cohen Ragas: One of the big turning points for lipstick I would say is one of the, first marketing12 campaigns was when Revlon introduced Fire and Ice in 1952.

Lipstick shades of red, pink and coral ruled until the 1970s, when lip 13)smackers and kissing 14)potion 15)ushered14 in a whole new look.

Karen Kozlowski: The first lip-gloss was, um, invented by Max Factor and it was for films and film stars so their lips looked shinier on film but it didn’t really gain the popularity it has today until the seventies.

With flavours like bubble gum, watermelon and root beer, these new products took the market by storm and there was a new look ahead for the eighties as makeup15 artists started mixing their own shades.

Karen Kozlowski: And some of them like Bobby Brown, uh, started to market those shades and she was really famous for her 16)neutrals. She came out with a whole line of neutrals that just took off because I think, you know, they were so appealing to, you know, women in general.

Another makeup artist Jeanine Lobell started Stila and watched as her lip glaze16 took off.

Jeanine Lobell (founder of Stila): I think at one point we were sold out of 12 out of 14 shades, the idea was like a stained glass where you could see skin through it and it would just like lay like a glass of colour over the mouth.

Other companies ushered in an 17)edgier look, suddenly this was not your mother’s lipstick. With ingredients like wax and emollients17, there’s not too much to worry about when licking your lips.

Karen Kozlowski: It’s been researched that in a woman’s lifetime she will digest between four and eight pounds of lipstick just from applying it and reapplying it.

E: Are there any calories in this?

And while you’re nibbling18 on that perfect shade consider this-lipstick has a record.

惹火红唇

如果说眼睛是心灵的窗户,那么嘴唇就是线条所在,它把焦点集中到脸的中央。

A:口红让我觉得像性感女人。
B:它让你更加妩媚。
各地的小女孩都会尝试她们母亲的口红,她们很早就了解到粉红代表清纯,鲜红代表活泼。
C:你可以涂上红色或者粉红色,它确实会让你神采飞扬,每日容光焕发。
9200万的美国妇女每天都会涂口红,每年口红的销售量数以百万计。按照《唇语》的作者的说法,钻石未必总是女孩子最好的朋友。

卡伦·科兹洛夫斯基(《唇语》作者之一)∶不是所有人都买得起钻石,但是我们都买得起口红。买不起香奈儿套装?但是买得起一支香奈儿口红!
据统计平均每位妇女每年要买四支左右的口红,但一些妇女说不止这个数。

D:我一般一个季度要买五支,五支口红。
口红历史悠久。人们认为古埃及人,包括男女,在下葬前为了来世都要把嘴唇涂上颜色。埃及艳后克娄巴特拉因为把唇涂成深红色而掀起轩然大波。很快口红便赢得恶名。

梅格·科恩·拉格斯(《唇语》作者之一):在18世纪和19世纪的时候,口红通常是与妓女联系在一起的。上流社会的妇女不涂口红,即使是当她们涂的时候,也是选择粉红色。
色彩缤纷的化妆品遇到了致命的阻碍。

梅格·科恩·拉格斯:20世纪20年代的口红多有致命的成分,并且1924年纽约健康部就打算禁用口红--不是因为考虑到它可能会对妇女们的健康构成危害,而是因为考虑到男士亲吻了涂口红的妇女后,口红会对他们的健康造成危害。
我们来谈谈“死亡之吻”。这些致命成分里有铅、水银甚至还有砒霜。那些漂亮的颜色,是来自碾碎了的昆虫。后来口红的成分标准化,人们对口红的热情便与日俱增。

梅格·科恩·拉格斯:有趣的是,甚至在大萧条时期,虽然经济上很糟糕,但是对于许多妇女来说,口红真的能够振奋情绪。在战争中,当海军护士不得不撤离潜水艇时,她们都说带的一件东西就是口红。
二战后一些化妆品公司开始用另一种全新的方式出售口红。

梅格·科恩·拉格斯:我认为,对于口红的一个大的转折点是1952年露华浓公司推出的“火与冰”系列而引发的第一次市场竞争。
在二十世纪70年代以前,红色、粉红和珊瑚色一直流行,那时口红便焕然一新了。

卡伦·科兹洛夫斯基∶第一支唇彩是由Max Factor公司为电影明星制作的,以使他们的嘴唇在屏幕上看起来更加闪亮。但直到70年代才真正受到广泛的欢迎。
因为有各种口味,如泡泡糖、西瓜和无醇啤酒口味,这些新品种风靡市场,到80年代有了全新的姿态,化妆师开始混色。

卡伦·科兹洛夫斯基∶其中有些人如芭比·布朗就开始销售这种产品并且因为她的中性色彩产品而声名远播。她推出了一整套中性色彩系列产品,很快就出售一空,因为它们吸引到一般的女性。
另一位化妆师开创了Stila品牌,她的玻璃唇蜜成为热潮。

珍妮·洛贝尔(Stila品牌的创始人)∶有一次我们14种产品中就有12种销售告罄,它就像是在你的嘴唇上涂上一层彩色玻璃,透过这层玻璃可以看到嘴唇的颜色。
其他公司推出更前卫的产品,仿佛突然之间它就不再是你妈妈的口红了。因为在口红的成分里加了蜡和润肤剂,舔唇时就不用太担心。

卡伦·科兹洛夫斯基∶据调查,一个妇女的一生会因为不断地涂和补涂口红而消化掉四至八磅重的口红。
E:它含有卡路里吗?
    舔着你最喜爱的颜色时,想一想--口红有一段历史。
