Is your lipstick safe ???

I was horrified to read how toxic some of our lipsticks are. I felt so lovely until I tried this simple test to see if there was lead in my lipstick.
Try this test: dab a small bit of your lipstick onto the back of your hand and then rub it with a gold ring. If there is lead in the lipstick it will turn black.

WELL !!! just imagine how my beauty suddenly faded when all of my 14 tubes turned various shades of black, and I suddenly felt sick to my stomach. So off I went to my safe cosmetics site,, and started to read the results of the lipstick tests.
BE AWARE, BE SAFE and go to and click on Cosmetic Data Base Skin Deep (on the right hand side of the page) and see how your lipstick scores.
