Recently a lipstick brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67
to $9.90. It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which causes cancer. The
lipstick Brands that 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
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 lipstick.
3. If the lipstick color changes to black, then you know the lipstick
contains lead.

Please send this information to all your girlfriends, wives and female
family members. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, especially breast cancer.

Lead in make up killed Elizabeth I - it is a cumulative poison (ie it can never be excreted by your body) and irreparably damages the liver.

Its use in household products has been banned for decades - this is a hoax.
