Carole Jackson wrote, in her book "Color Me Beautiful" that 'the discovery of lipstick as a teenage girl changed my life'. This slit scroll book, housed in a lipstick tube, includes dozens of observations about the history, manufacture and general qualities of lipstick.
The cloth covered box housing the tube is coated on the outside with red wax. A mirror inside the box has Jackson's words handwritten in red.
