There has always been a little lead in lipsticks. You have lead in your drinking water too. Those people are just praying on America's fear!

What I DID find interesting that they say that women eat 4 lbs. of lipstick over their lifetime. Now how in the heck did they figure that one out LOL!

I guess that is true. At the end of the day when the lip stick is no longer on your lips it had to have gone somewhere right?

Maybe if you could figure out how many tubes of lipstick you go through in a year multiply that by the wieght of the lipstick then divide by "X" after you figure out how much wears off onto napkins, folks & husbands leaving you w/ the % *eaten* so to speak. I never thought about consuming lipstick.

I don't wear much lipstick. Whenever I wear anything other than a totally neutral color i feel like I look like a drag queen or something. So I just stopped wearing it. I'm more a chapstick/lipgloss girl.

Then there's carmine- the red pigment that is made from cochineal beetles. Harmless, supposedly- but bug lips!!!! ack!!! Hard Candy used to make a lipstick with caffeine- I never really saw the point, but it was interesting as a selling tactic, I suppose. But lead- definitely not good- especially since lipstick is heavily ingested. Ugh. Another reason to make our own!
