Massive Make-Up Kit FAIL

on January 10, 2012

Today I found a huge purple case in the bathroom containing cosmetics from one of the big make-up stores (I am going to assume it belongs to the 15 year old) .  It was pretty awesome:  tons of eyeshadows, lipsticks, glosses, blushers, bronzers, eye pencils and all of the brushes you could want.

Hanging from the handle was the tag, which contained several “pages” of the ingredients of all the products included.  This was no healthy brand of cosmetics, the ingredients were shocking as well as completely toxic.  The first ingredient in all of the eyeshadows and powders was talc, which makes me run away screaming.  Add in the parabens, SLS, acetates, polymers…yeah, just a chemical slew of pretty colors.  That’s not the reason why I am here mentioning this make-up kit, thought.

What shocked me was this warning, listed in bold black letter after the ingredients for the blush and the bronzer:  DO NOT PUT ON LIPS.

Doesn’t say why, it just says it.  So here’s my question:  so if its safe for your face but not on your lips, why put it on your face?
