Benibana is said to have its origin in the Nile River Valley of Egypt. It spread from Middle East to India and later into China through Silk Road, and then came to Japan in the mid-3rd century. Fine quality of “Beni” has brilliant gloss of iridescent green glow with beautiful red gradation. No other red pigment can compete with “Beni”. Japan has a long history of fascination towards the red color. Because the color of “Beni” is the most desired among many different shades of red color, this glorious red color is used not only for makeup but also for garments as a symbol of luck to protect women from illness in lifetime. To use: 1. Moisten lip blush with water. Remove excess moisture by stroking on the edge of cup. 2. Dissolve a small amount of “Beni”, starting at the edge of cup. 3. Apply “Beni” on your lips. Color turns from clear light pink to deep red depending on the amount of water used or number of times “Beni” applied on your lips. *** (Source: http://ift.tt/2qSDsmx)
