lipstick has lead

When you're shopping for lipstick, you shouldn't have to cross
your fingers and hope you get something good.

An October report by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, of which
EWG is a founding member, found lead in 61% of the 33 top-brand
lipsticks tested -- including L'Oreal, Cover Girl, and Christian Dior.

Lead is linked to learning and behavioral problems, but alarmingly,
FDA doesn't regulate it in cosmetics.
