You may want to read this before you buy another lipstick. The FDA has found that 400 types of lipstick do contain lead. The worst offender was Maybelline Color Sensation. It tested positive for 275 times the amount of lead as you’d find in the least-contaminated brand.

Wow- who knew??? I hope this is a safe dosage in each lipstick though. I thought using lead in products was not allowed!

Off topic: Never knew NARS was owned by Shiseido or even that Maybelline was owned by L'Oreal! Would explain the good quality product though :-)
I'm glad Tarte isn't in the list. I absolutely love their paraben free junk free cancer causing elements free products!!

on the news they said that the lead was slowly deposited into you blood

I just found this article that says that even more natural product's like Burt's Bees can still contain lead, which is kind of a scary thought!

According to the FDA, the lead content is still 'safe' .. I'm not sure it's really a problem, but I wish companies would source safer ingredients. Unfortunately, bigger companies seem more intent on churning out tons of product instead of researching alternative ingredients.
