Want Some LEAD With That Lipstick? FDA Tests 400 Lipsticks for Lead Content

The FDA tested 400 tubes of lipstick for lead contamination and came up with 400 tubes of various brands and shades that tested positive for lead. The top 10 lipsticks on the list were found to have the highest concentration of lead on the list and so on and so forth. You are welcome to view the list yourself below but I will share with you the top 5 worst offenders:

Maybelline Color Sensational in Pink Petal
L'Oreal Color Riche in Volcanic
NARS Red Lizard
Cover Girl Queen Collection Ruby Remix
NARS Funny Face 

Who had the "leadiest" lipsticks on the list? L'Oreal.

Other offenders further down in the list include MAC Impassioned, MAC Show Orchid, MAC Cream in Your Coffee.

Watch the video and see the full list below:


  1. I read about this, but apparently it's not enough to actually hurt anyone. Still, I love L'Oreal lipsticks so I am a bit sad about this.

  2. If it*s true this stuff is mostly made in China, then this is a good reason to get our jobs back into the good old USA. Let*s put our own lead in our own products.

  3. Great info.
    Thankss for sharing

  4. Yesterday I wrote about the same thing on my blog ;)
