  1. Lipstick Alert!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Recently a brand called "Red Earth" decreased
    theirprices from $67 to $9.90.
    It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which
    causes cancer.

    The Brands which contain lead are:
    2. LANCOME
    4. Y.S.L
    7. RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
    8. CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)

    The higher the lead content, the greater the
    chance of causing cancer.

    After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that
    the Y.S.L. lipstick contained the most amount of lead.
    Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed
    to stay longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is
    because of the higher content of lead.

    Here is the test
    you can do yourself:

    1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
    2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the
    3. If the lipstick color changes to black then you know the lipstick contains lead.

  2. Sounds very disturbing !!!

    Thank you, for the info Cookie !
  3. is this one of those email hoaxes, like the one about dioderant causing breast cancer?

    i'm calling BS, i don't believe it.
  4. No prob.. I hope it helps cause I know women who love purses.. love fashion love looking their best (with or with out make up) so when we decide to wear lipstick that day i'd rather be safe than sorry.. :smile:..

    Amanda- My bf told me about that deoderant story too.. i dunno.. it feels like we cant wear anything now a days... I hope someone here can tell us the truth
  5. Where did this info come from ?
  6. I didn't think it was still legal to produce products that contain lead.
  7. My friend sent it to me.. and something about it made me think.. tell everyone you know...the first thing that came to mind was tell the purseblog ladies..

    Scarlett.. well if that is true then that is great to know... cause I love my make up!!!

  8. My friend sent it to me.. and something about it made me think.. tell everyone you know...the first thing that came to mind was tell the purseblog ladies

    Where did she get the information , if you dont mind me asking ?
  9. This is just an email hoax, various sources have already debunked the myth. (For example, gold can't actually do that to lead.) Actually, I'm pretty sure this very one has been posted on the Purse Forum before.
  10. I've received an e-mail about this same story....I just don't believe it.
  11. I usually take these things with a pinch of salt, unless i personally see the scientific research to back up the information!
    Still, it was all in good faith, so thanks for the warning cookiepieface! x ;)
  12. Urban Myth
  13. are you sure???? I thought they tested lipsticks on rabbits! But rabbits dont have big enough lips do they??:nuts:
  14. come to think of lips feel a bit heavy these days!! kind of lead like..
