This week we're taking you into the world of our Goddesses and why it was that we based our first range around these ancient Goddesses and what they mean to us.
Lou Lou Lips wants to give women confidence to be themselves. Lou Lou Lips lipsticks add to your beauty, we don’t want to change you. We want to help all women find their confidence inside and out.
That’s why we’ve named our lipsticks after the early Roman and Greek deities. The spirits of these Goddesses were closely linked to the physical and spiritual needs of people. The Goddesses acted as an idea that people could believe in to give them strength and hope. This is what Lou Lou Lips wants to be for women through lipstick, a symbol of strength, hope, and confidence, helping them get through every day.
Aurora, the Goddess of dawn in Roman mythology, renews herself every morning and flies across the sky, announcing the arrival of the sun. Her energy represents renewal and the new hope that comes with each day.
Dea Dia was the ancient Roman Goddess of growth. Every May, Dea Dia’s priests held a three-day festival in her honor. Dea Dia gives women the strength to continue to grow, learn and explore themselves and the world around them.
Flora was the ancient Roman goddess of flowers and of the season of spring. She was a symbol for nature and flowers and was also representative as a goddess of youth. We are continuing to grow every day at Lou Lou Lips and Flora believes it’s never too late to grow into yourself.
In ancient roman mythology Luna is the divine embodiment of the Moon. The moon was associated with the divine feminine and was important in ancient calendars helping people to measure time. The moon and the stars were also important in navigation. Luna represents the strength to continue navigating your own path in life.
Nemesis was the Greek Goddess of Revenge & Divine Retribution. Nemesis was described as a remorseless Goddess, intent on her task which was “to give what is due”. We like to use Nemesis when we need strength to go out and get what we deserve. We hope she gives you your strength when you most need it.
Venus is the Roman goddess of love, beauty, sex, fertility, prosperity and desire. Venus is one of the most widely referenced deities of Greco-Roman mythology as the embodiment of love and sexuality. Venus encourages love to all, beginning with yourself.
Victoria was the ancient Roman personified Goddess of victory. She was a major part of Roman society. Multiple temples were erected in her honor. Victoria was a symbol of victory over death and determined who would be successful during war. Victoria encourages women to aim for success.
All of our lipsticks have a special meaning to us and we hope they will for you too, whether it’s the strength given to you from Victoria to face the day each morning, or the sexy confidence boost from Venus when you’re heading out for drinks, wear them whenever you need a little bit extra to get through the day.
