I love my lipstick, whenever I’m feeling down I just slick it on and it automatically makes me feel better, happier god even sexier! But the other day I read something which scared me via HiFashion
many lipstick brands, including Dior, Lancome, Clinique, YSL, Estee Lauder and Shiseido, are suspected to contain lead, which is a cancer-causing chemical. Apparently, lipsticks that are marketed to have longer staying-power are the ones that have the highest lead content.
So how do you know if your lipstick is one of them? follow this guide
- if it has black specks in it this means it contains lead
- apply some of your lipstick to your hand
- using a gold ring scratch along the surface of it
I did this using my nana’s engagement ring yesterday and was devastated that my favourite lipstick – Rimmel colour show off, shade 030, tell no one– does. I need to find a new one now but ho hum, it’s that or my health.
I hope you all do this now, Im going lipstick shopping today and will be wearing a gold ring to test them.
