Military Lipstick

I came across an old ad mat from WWII for a lipstick that was made for service woman. After doing a little research on this lipstick; I thought this was a cool story about the company Cylax and their products.

In 1902 the Cylax Company of London began to sell cosmetics. By 1910 Cylax was selling products such as skin care, hair care, face powders, lip lotions and soap to name a few.

In 1919 Cylax products were being distributed to the United States. During WWII Cylax lost their factory in the London Blitz, the bombing of the United Kingdom by Nazi Germany. Temporary facilities were made until a new factory was built in 1953.

As a war effort Cylax made a burn treatment and a camouflage cream.

This is what I thought was such an interesting thing that seemed to have made a huge splash as a new trend.

In 1939 the company released a lipstick shade called ‘Auxilary Red’ made specifically for Service woman. It has been suggested that this lipstick started the use of bright red lipsticks during the war.

Want To Stop Mascara From Clumping?

Here’s a little tip I heard a long time ago about stopping mascara from clumping and I do this everyday.

Never pump the wand in and out of the tube. As air gets inside, it dries out the liquid leaving you with clumpy mascara.

Always wipe away any clumps of mascara on the wand to be certain of clump free lashes.

Water-proof vs Water-resistant Mascara

mascara

Water-proof mascara is really harsh on the lashes.  It coats the lashes and as it dries it shrinks around the lash.  This shrinking can cause breakage and lashes to fall out.  Waterproof is also a lot harder to remove resulting in more rubbing of the eye area.  Stick to water-resistant which is much easier on the lashes.
