The Dangers In Your Lipsti
In countless memorable movie scenes, when
characters apply lipstick it
transforms them. But have you ever thought
about what’s in the
lipstick? Recently a lipstick brand called “Red
Earth”
Decreased their prices from
$67 to $9.90. It contained lead. Lead is a
chemical which causes cancer.
The lipstick brands that contain lead are:
CHRISTIAN DIOR
LANCOME
CLINIQUE
Y.S.L
ESTEE LAUDER
SHISEIDO
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK.
The higher the lead content, the greater the
chance of causing cancer.
After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that
the Y.S.L. Lipstick
Contained the most amount of lead.
Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed
to stay longer.
If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the
higher content of lead.
Here is the test you can do yourself:
1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
3. If the lipstick color changes to black,
Then you know the lipstick contains lead.
