Your Lipstick Might Be Slowly Poisoning You

August 19, 2013 by Katelyn Holland
shefinds | beauty

You might be exposing yourself to toxic metals every time you touch up your lipstick. And if you’re anything like me, that’s like 10+ times a day. Most lipsticks contain at least a trace of lead, but New York Times recently reported that a new study found that a wide range of lipsticks contain as many as 8 other metals, such as cadmium and aluminum. I’m trying not be a hypochondriac here, but is my prized lipstick collection slowly killing me?!  Basically, every time you wear lipstick, you swallow a little bit of it and lead builds up in your system. According the article, short-term exposure isn’t the problem, but scientists aren’t sure about the chronic long-term effects. The highest lead reading was found in a deep floral pink lipstick and the lowest in a neutral lip balm, which really rules out a lot of color options. Are sexy pink lips really worth the potential danger? Read the rest of the New York Times article to find out.

In other less horrifying beauty news, YouTube star Michelle Phan just launched her very own makeup line and the fall collection from O.P.I. is here.
