Cosmetic evidence such as lipstick recovered from a crime scene can prove useful to link a suspect with the victim or crime scene and therefore need to be carefully analysed during crime investigation. 53 lipstick samples of different brands of similar colour were selected for this study. Colouring agent was analysed by thin layer chromatography (TLC) and organic components were subjected to gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Using three different solvent systems (methylene chloride…

Comparative Forensic Analysis of Lipsticks Using Thin Layer Chromatography and Gas Chromatography

 Abstract — Lipsticks constitute a significant source of transfer evidence, and can, therefore, provide corroborative or inclusionary evidence in criminal investigation. This study aimed to

Forensic examination of lipstick by the various physio-chemical and instrumental method.

Stains play an important role for criminal identification in different type of cases such rape, murder, theft, burglary. Stains i.e. blood, semen, saliva, lipstick are the most common evidence found

Rapid and nondestructive analysis of lipstick on different substrates using ATR-FTIR spectroscopy and chemometrics.

Lipstick can be an important piece of evidence in crimes like murders, rapes, and suicides. Due to its prevalence, it can be an important corroborative evidence in crime reconstruction. The analysis

A Comparison of Red Pigments in Different Lipsticks Using Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)

The main aim of present work is chromatographic analysis of red pigment in different well known and local brands of lipsticks. Lipstick samples of different brands of similar color were selected for

Comparison of Minute Smears of Lipstick by Microspectrophotometry and Scanning Electron Microscopy/Energy-Dispersive Spectroscopy

Minute lipstick smears are sometimes found as evidence on clothing, eigarette butts, bedding, and miscellaneous crime scene surfaces. Traditional techniques, such as visible-absorption spectroscopy,

Neutron Activation Analysis of Lipsticks Using γ-Ray Spectrometry

Neutron activation analysis with γ-ray spectrometry was used to measure the concentrations of various elements in lipsticks of popular Indian and foreign brands. The aim of the present work was to

Luminous lip-prints as criminal evidence.

The in-situ analysis of lipsticks by surface enhanced resonance Raman scattering

The use of surface enhanced resonance Raman scattering (SERRS) spectroscopy is reported for the in-situ characterization of chromophores in lipstick smears on glass and cotton surfaces. A surfactant
