Carminic acid, which forms 17% to 24% of the weight of the dried insects, can be extracted from the insect's body and eggs.Mixed with aluminum or calcium salts it makes carmine dye (also known as cochineal).Lipstick was scarce during that time because some of the essential ingredients of lipstick, petroleum and castor oil, were unavailable.World War II allowed women to work in engineering and scientific research, and in the late 1940s, Hazel Bishop, an organic chemist in New York and New Jersey, created the first long lasting lipstick, called No-Smear lipstick.It was covered in silk paper and made from deer tallow, castor oil, and beeswax.In the 19th century, lipstick was colored with carmine dye.
Carmine dye was expensive and the look of carmine colored lipstick was considered unnatural and theatrical, so lipstick was frowned upon for everyday wear.
Other companies have imitated the idea, putting out their own versions of long-lasting "lip stain" or "liquid lip colour." Throughout the early 20th century, lipstick came in a limited number of shades.
Dark red was one of the most popular shades throughout the 19th and 20th century. Flappers wore lipstick to symbolize their independence.
Carmine dye was extracted from cochineal, scale insects native to Mexico and Central America which live on cactus plants.
Cochineal insects produce carminic acid to deter predation by other insects.
