It was more than ten years ago when I started testing the lipsticks that I had. I probably had more than ten. My lipsticks were branded ones (most of which were gifts): MAC, L’Oreal, Revlon Colorstay, Maybelline, Estee Lauder, Dior, et al. As per the email that I received that to know the level of lead content of a lipstick is apply it on the arm and rub the portion with a gold jewelry. It surprised me that every single one contained lead. It seemed like the more expensive the brand, the more lead it contains. Try it for yourself. It scared me and now I am happy to report to you that my lips are now practically lead free.
This is what I have been using for around four years now. Bioenzyme Lipstick
. I love it. It protects and refines.
Read the buzz from their website:
Enchance the natural beauty of kissable lips. Indulge in the allure of
glamorous red lipstick. Contains beeswax blended with herbal and flower
extracts that help maintain the redness and moisture of lips. Long lasting.
