Lipstick test

Even lipstick isn't safe anymore...what's next? Brands don't mean everything. Recently a brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90. It contained lead! Lead is a metal chemical which causes cancer. The Brands which contain lead are:

1. CHRISTIAN DIOR

2. LANCOME

3. CLINIQUE

4. Y.S.L

5. ESTEE LAUDER

6. SHISEIDO

7. RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)

8. CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)

9. 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 last longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the higher content of lead. Here is the test you can do yourself:

Put some lipstick on your hand. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick. If the lipstick color changes to black then you know the lipstick contains lead.

Please send this information to all your girlfriends, wives and female family members. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Dioxin Carcinogens causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Don't freeze your plastic water bottles with water as ! this also releases dioxin in the plastic.

I don´t think this is true either. especially high end cosmetic lines must test their makeup before it gets in stores. and if it was really true, this would have been on the news, cause that would sure be really really scary and dangerous.

There is some dangerous stuff in cosmetics (http://www.safecosmetics.org ), but this particular one is an urban legend. http://www.snopes.com/toxins/lipstick.asp
