I was recently told about a test you can do to find out if your make-up has lead in it
even the really expensive brands test positive!!!

this info was sent to me from someone active in the breast-cancer awareness and research


apply a small amount of make-up (lipstick especially) to the top of your wrist and rub it gently (about 5-10 times) with a GOLD (10k-14k) ring

if the make-up contains lead- the sample area will trurn BLACK-the darker it becomes represents the amout of lead content

this information is important-pass it along to every one you know that uses make-up- (lipstick has a very high relation to breast-cancer)

thanks for letting me share!!!


Welcome Allisong and Kraez70 nice to have you here at MUT I am Joy. Kraez70 the info you posted has me a bit concerned for many years I have been able to take 10 and 14kt gold jewlery and rub it on any part of my skin and leave a black mark. I can draw on myself with jewlery, I have used it in the past to take down phone #'s when I did not have a pen and paper. Myself, friends and family have always wondered why I could do this. Now I am kind of worried it, I wonder if I should have my blood checked for lead or something I have also been quite ill with Lupus for 17 years, your post has me wondering if there might be some connection. Hmmmmmm
