In the 1880s, there was a lip rouge controversy.

red lips, lipstick, makeup

By the late nineteenth century, lipstick had grown in favor as all the beautiful and stylish Victorian-era girls began to wear it. The first commercially successful lipstick made from grapefruit and butter was produced by the French cosmetic firm 'Guerlain' in the 1880s. Thank god for ingredients that don't make you puke. While lipstick began to appear in department shops, applying lipstick was still considered an extremely intimate process. In the 1800s, actress Sarah Bernhardt provoked a tremendous incident merely by wearing lipstick in public. That may sound incredibly typical to us moderns. It would have been some extremely hot gas if you were an 1800s person.
