Ancient Sumerian were inventor of lipstick

Lipstick is a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes, and emollients that apply color, texture, and protection to the lips. Ancient Sumerian men and women were the first to invent and wear lipstick, about 5,000 years ago. Ancient Egyptians wore lipstick to show social status rather than gender. During the Islamic Golden Age the notable Andalusian cosmetologist Abu al-Qasim al-Zahrawi (Abulcasis) invented solid lipsticks.
