Unsafe Lipsticks

Recently a brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67 to

$9.90. It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.

The Brands which contain lead are:

1. CHRISTIAN DIOR

2. LANCÔME

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 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. Smear 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.
