I've noticed that every time I put on lipstick or lip gloss, it goes away everytime I eat, does that mean I've been eating lipstick all this time?! Does it cause any sickness or diseases?? I mean is it okay to eat chemicals?

Most of it is probably just rubbing off rather than being consumed.

I don't worry about it...

lol. Im pretty sure we all do that and thats why we reapply. I dont think it does any damage but i remember there being a study about how much l/g and l/s we digest.

when my daughter was 2 she drank an ounce of liquid foundation. I called poison control and was told that anything made to go on the face won't hurt you if it is consumed.

also, doesn't philosophy make some flavored lipglosses and they are marked to help diet by eating them instead of cookies or something. I think I saw Christina Carlino eat some of the icing flavored l/g right from the tube.

I'd say that if you can wear it on your face 24/7 then ingesting a bit will not harm you...

i think most of it stays on your glass instead of being ingested, so i don't worry about the small amount i actually eat.
back when it was the time of the first false tattoos you can take off with soap and water, the salesman told me the one i bought was natural, made with veggies so i could lick it if i was in need of a snack.

I read something like the average woman eats a total of 7 pounds of lipstick in her life.

No worries!

It's not uncommon to ingest small amounts of lipstick when you put it on your lips. That's what she's referring to.

As far as dangerous amounts of lead in lipsticks, that's an urban legend. It's not true.

the FBI(or something like that...) apparently keeps records of all lipsticks rofl

and i doubt you'll die from eating lipstick. unless u ate them tube by tube in substitute of dinner, most you'll get is an upset stomach.

The colorants ... etc they use in lipstick will be lip safe, which means they will be safe if ingested.

I wouldn't worry about it either.

Agree with Karren, i wouldnt worry about it, i have never heard of anyone dying from eating lipstick lol, if its safe to wear it on your lips it should also be safe if you eat if accidentally/unpurposedly.

I'm sure its fine. As long as you're not buying lipstick and taking it home and eatting it whole (which I don't know why ANYONE would but you never know) then you're fine.
Holding onto what is gone.. won't heal it.

You probably aren't eating the lipstick. Also, I don't think its safe to eat lipstick considering it has wax and latex. just try not to bite it, ok? and i believe it may cause Cancer. Good luck and hope i helped. () ()
