Summary: Around 400 shades of lipstick; researchers discovered contains lead. According to testing by the Food and Drug Administration, five lipsticks that is made by L'Oreal and Maybelline are ranked among the 10 most contaminated cosmetics that contains lead. Two cover girl as well as two NARS lipsticks is in the top 10, and one by Stargazer. A campaign for safe cosmetics have been trying to make the government limit lead levels in lipstick but it isn't successful because the FDA says the amount of lead in the lipstick does not concern safety risks. The FDA says their research found that the level of lead found in the lipstick don't have ant serious threats or issues. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics argue with them saying they have found high levels of lead.
Reflection: I think the article was very cool because I like wearing makeup. I wear lipstick sometimes and I do have a few from L'Oreal and this does concern my safety. I would still be using it but less often because I spent a lot of money on it but I do considered the risk of the level of lead. I just hope they do not increasingly add more and more lead. I want to learn what is in more other cosmetic products as well.
