Lead in your lipstick

How much lead is in your lipstick? We've stopped using balsamic vinegars on the basis of the lead tests, seems like there are lots of places that need looking.

So, do you wear L'Oreal Colour Rich "True Red"?!?

I wonder if there is a correlation between IQ and lipstick color (or use).

I think the last time I was involved in the lipstick purchasing decision it was about 5AM in a K-Mart in Reno and I was after some pantyhose and Dylan was pursuing some "fuck me red" at the cosmetics counter.

Much to the amusement of the three women who were running the place.

There are some things that are just too painful to visualize.

I knew kissing girls was dangerous.

It really is perfectly possible to get through life sans lipstick.

Getting the glittery nail polish off after being stalked by a trucker at the gas station is a pain. A shiny Smith and Wesson is a wonderful way to say: "I'm sorry, you are not my type"

Lipstick comes off easier.

btw: Tap Water is apparently allowed to contain .015 ppm, and you drink a lot of it. Lipstick at .65ppm, is higher than that, but at least you don't drink it. The question is: Where does lipstick go? Yeah, I'll bet a lot of it is ingested.

Diane, next you're going to tell me I didn't have to learn how to walk in heels.

As friends on facebook who've seen some of other's Burningman pix posted can attest: yes it is.
