The terms “batom” of the Portuguese language (derived from the French bâton) and "lipstick" of the English language highlight the shape or consistency of the object represented, to associate it with a stick, rod or stick.
In turn, the French word “rouge à lèvres” does not highlight the shape of the represented object. Such expression, seems to emphasize the function of which is represented (to blush or color the lips) or perhaps the notion of derivation of this object of another (the rouge like makeup for cheeks).
The act of coloring the lips is something done by women for thousands of years. In the XIX century, terms like "lip rouge", "tinted lip balm", "tinted lip salve" and “rouge à lèvres” were used to represent the products used to give color to the lips.
The XIX century corresponds, in part, to the call Victorian era, marked by the existence of a lot of moral censure the use of makeup by women.
In that same century, France was the main producer of cosmetics. Many pharmacies and French perfume produced and sold products to color the lips, but there was a lot of discretion on the part of businesses and consumers. Perhaps reflecting this negative stigma of makeup, products classified as medicinal, but slightly coloriam lips, they were very successful. Many French companies started launching different types of products "en bâton" and this was a novelty in the market.
Among these products was “rouge à lèvres en bâton” or “stick lip-rouge”. As an example, o Ne m’oubliez pas of Guerlain (1870).
For no other reason, many dictionaries suggest the emergence of the word "lip stick" around 1880. Another interesting fact is that the Portuguese word "batom", as mentioned above, despite having a meaning similar to the English word "lipstick" has its radical derived from the French word “bâton” very strong indication not only of the influence of the French cosmetics at the time, but the impact of this form of presentation of the product.
Unlike Americans who have been substituting the words "lip rouge" with "lipstick", as new synonymous with the product for lip paint, the French kept using the term, “rouge à lèvres”. I believe that because of the long French tradition of using products for coloring the lips, which led them to realize lipstick as just a new form or consistency rouge for lips.
What happened to the French, it can be compared to the current fact that companies continue calling "lipstick" or "batom" new lip products that do not keep the shape or consistency any similarity with a "stick". Examples lipstick liquid and cream lipstick.

An important moment in the history of lip gloss happened in 1970, when the Bonne Bell cosmetics company launched the first lip gloss fruit-flavored called Lip Smackers. This type of lip gloss has always been very popular with the younger crowd.
