A lip coloring agent has always been an essential part of every girl’s make-up kit as it can make or break a look in no time. Back in the early civilizations, women used colouring agents from natural flowers to adorn their lips which goes on to show the importance of lip colors in enhancing your beauty. Even in that era, adding the right kind of color and shimmer to the lips was considered glamorous.
