Imp : Lead In Lipstick
This article is taken from http://urbanlegendsonline.com/2010/03/lead-in-lipstick/
Recently a lipstick brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90 because it contained lead.
Lead causes cancer and the lipstick brands that contain lead are:
• CHRISTIAN DIOR
• ESTEE LAUDER
• 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.
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.
