    Recently a brand called "Red Earth" decreased its price from $67 to $9.90.
    It contained lead which causes cancer

    The brands which contain lead are:
    > > > 1. CHRISTIAN DIOR
    > > > 2. LANCOME
    > > > 3. CLINIQUE
    > > > 4. Y.S.L
    > > > 5. ESTEE LAUDER
    > > > 6. SHISEIDO
    > > > 7. RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
    > > > 8. CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
    > > > 9. MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK.

    The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer.
    After a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S.L. lipstick
    contained the most lead. Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed
    to stay longer. If your lipstick does, it contains more lead. Here is a
    test you can do yourself:
    1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
    2. Use a gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
    3. If the lipstick color changes to black, then you know the lipstick
    contains lead.

    I've only heard that lipstick should infact reduce the risk of cancer..apparently less females than males get cancer on their lips (Due to the fact that lipsstick protects the skin against some harmly uv-rays etc).

    Exactly, just like the 'deodorants that cause breast cancer'.
    I have a feeling cheap brands try to bring down the expensive ones with this sort of methods.

    i wouldnt be so sure.........
    latex could be linked to cancer one day......
    and if you're on the pill........that might too

    and if you arent using contraception at all......then you might catch unprotected sex cancer :lol:

    seriously though, they need to shut up about what causes it and give us a cure

    i'll go one step further and say they need to find a way to prevent it from happening at all...like a vaccine or vitamin or something...

    the incident of various cancers is increasing steadily... :ninja:

    The thing of putting on the lipstick on your hand and scratching to see if it turns black is ridiculous.

    The way they test cancer when it comes to food is by feeding 2 groups of a specific kind of mouse that easily developps a certain kind of cancer. It's like when they tested those mouses with PEANUT BUTTER (which apparently causes cancer - big joke! :rolleyes: ). They fed the first group of mouses non stop with peanut butter and the second group with normal food (which is MINUS the peanut butter). After three months or so 50 mouses in the first group died of cancer as opposed to approx. 20 in the second. But LISTEN, it all depends on HOW you're interpreting all this info.... The mouses in the FIRST group were fed NON STOP with peanut butter the whole time. The amount of peanut butter they ate in A WEEK is 10 times the amount of peanut butter an average human is gonna eat during its whole life. So what's the big deal, let's just compare it to cigarette, just SMOKING ONE PUFF (what I mean by that is not even a WHOLE cigarette but just one "INHALATION") is 237 times more "cancerous" than the amount of peanut butter you're gonna be eating your whole life. And then you see all these articles on how dangereous peanut butter is!!!!

    So WHAT are actually your chances of getting cancer from eating peanut butter....!??!?!?!

    And lipstick......!?!?!?! :rolleyes: Come on, just forget about it..... Pffffff B)
