doll up au naturale

Thursday, February 23, 2012

makeups are not compulsory, but they are like a necessity. i'm pretty sure that most women out there at least put on moisturizers and a pressed powder in handbags is a must.

a good article i stumbled upon this morning - heavy metals found in many cosmetics, not listed on labels.

it even listed a few products to have the highest levels of impurities, such as:

  •  Clinique Stay True Makeup foundation (Stay Ivory) — arsenic, cadmium, beryllium, lead, nickel, thallium
  • Sephora Sculpting Powder Trio eye shadow (Brown and Pink) — beryllium, lead, nickel, thallium
  • MAC Sheerton Shimmer Blush (Springsheen) — beryllium, lead, nickel, thallium
  • L'Oreal Bare Naturale mascara (Black/Brown) — arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, lead, nickel, thallium
  • Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus eyeliner (Black Onyx) — beryllium, cadmium, lead, nickel
  • Almay Intense i-color Trio eye color (Trio for Blues, Brown and Dark Grey) — beryllium, cadmium, lead, nickel, selenium
  • Benefit Benetint Pocket Pal (Red Tint and Clear Gloss) — arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, lead, nickel, selenium, thallium
one interesting comment found in the article,
wish more women would work on being beautiful on the inside, a smile is a much prettier
works everytime and very cost effective =)
