What is your lippie for today?
From Lipstick by Jessica Pallingston: Mary Quant was a great innovator in lipstick, creating the famous flower vial and revolutionary colors but she caused problems in her other pursuits. Quant also invented the miniskirt, and protests arose outside the vatican when women wearing her creation were barred from entering. Wearers were also subject to jail in Greece-and perhaps the most horrible of all- were banned in America from entering Disneyland. These women should have just stuck to Mary Quant lipsticks, which came without such heavy restrictions.
