As per the New York Post, archaeologists found this in southeast Iran. It’s a carved stone bottle dating back to 1936 BC, made from chlorite mineral around 1687 BC.

How Did The Lipstick Look?

This old lipstick, dating back to the Bronze Age, was found in southeastern Iran. It likely had a hole at the top for the product to come out, and people probably used a brush to apply it. Scientists studied the deep red substance recently and shared their findings in a report. Massimo Vidale, one of the researchers, mentioned that it might have been more like lip paint than solid lipstick. Talking about the appearance of the lipstick, it is about 2 inches long and three-quarters of an inch wide, with a cylindrical shape. Videl explained to The Washington Post that its small size made it easy to handle. Unlike other containers made from sugarcane at that time, this one was made of stone.
