Most of us put on our lipstick and don't think much of it, but there's a lot of interesting history behind the stuff. Take this quiz to test your knowledge, and you might be surprised by the results. I certainly was!

Demonkitty 18, you're right — fish scales have been used in lipsticks to give them that "pearly" finish. But I got sneaky and asked about the color of red lipstick. To all of you who are squidged out about the beetles... hate to tell you this, but it's in a lot of our food, too. The dye is called Carmine, but a lot of times it's listed as "natural coloring." And while it *is* natural, it's also a bit gross!

I knew about the boiled insects, but gosh... I did really bad on this quiz. I don't think boiled insects are that bad, especially when you imagine what else they could be putting in our products.
