Raquel Torres, Inventor of the Lip Stamp



Raquel Torres, 1908-1987

Raquel Torres is someone I’d never heard of until recently and I felt she needed a little recognition, a little resurgence, if you will, of who she was. She was an actress from the thirties best known for her role in The Marx Brothers, Duck Soup movie.



What I thought was intriguing about her was that she was an inventor of something cool, a wooden stamp that made applying lipstick easier and came in many shapes and sizes.

A quote from Raquel Torres in reference to her wooden lip stamps,  “They come in all sorts of mouth shapes!” says Raquel, “all you have to do is hold it up to your lips and plop on your favorite lipstick to get some interesting mouth shapes!”
