I wear it, I am use to wearing it. My lips seem dry with out them. or how about Lip gloss? I was looking and the program today, and they said that lipstick has cayenne pepper in it, I was shocked, why do you suppose they put Cayenne pepper in it? I notice some times my lips would be tingling like I had hot pepper or something, I had notice this for years, but I did'nt know why. Isn't that strange? Have you heard this before? and another thing that long lasting lipstick that stays on a day, it suppose to have Cancer causing agents in them. Ok, I thought I would share this with the Ladies on Mylot. Men read this too, so you can tell your Wifes or Girl-friends about this. Ok, I will chat later.

I use lip stain on my lips and then just apply lip gloss whenever my lips get dry, been doing it this way for years, unsure about lipstick I gave it up when it came off with my meal. Be well, my friend!

Lipstick causes cancer! Not true!!! http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/lipstick.asp I checked this out, as I have seen so many warnings posted on myLot which turn out to be completely false.

Whiteheather, I don't know about Mylot, but I have read this in Magazines, and read it a few other places, some of these name brand lipsticks. so I can not agree with you. I have heard this before you were born.

Hot, Hot, Hot - This is just one lip plumper that stings and burns to make lips fuller. I actually like it!
I wear lipstick or gloss all the time. the stuff with the pepper is lip plumper made to make your lips look fuller by making them sting and burn a little and having blood rush to the lips. It's harmless. Regular lipstick and gloss doesn't have Cayenne pepper' in it. You'll know because it really stings. I have used lip plumpers with the pepper in it and it just makes my lips a little fuller for a half an hour. Not really worth the sting.

Hey Nita, I hope you don't mind me calling you that for short, this one lady here told me she didn't appreciate me calling her her real name so, after that I said I will just say Nita. Hope have you been, yes I heard that on a ommercial, about lipstick. I hear theirs lead in some lipsticks. take some lipstick, put it on back of you hand. mark your hand with it, then take a gold ring and wipe the lipstick with it if it turns black, it has lead in it. someone here told me that. I am going to try it, because I have a lot of lipstick.

This is pretty scary if indeed lipsticks contain cancer causing ingredients. Sometimes I want to look sophisticated so I use a bit of lipstick but for daily use. days I just use lip balm (The Body Shop Born Lippy).

When I was working in the office I seldom wear lipstick. My lips is already pinkish and I rely on natural beauty. Besides, I did not have time for those cosmetics painting because it consumes much time for me.

I didn't know they put Cayenne Pepper in lipstick. At a guess I would say the Cayenne Pepper is possibly to plump lips out a little because it will act as a mild irritant but I'm not sure - it could be something to do with the colour as well. Personally I wear lip gloss more than lipstick because lipstick is a bit more hassle to keep looking ok through the day. I HATE those "last all day" lipsticks - they are so drying I think, my lips just looked horrid when I tried them. I hadn't heard about the cancer causing agents in them but I don't wear them anyway.

I had heard years ago that some cosmetics had a little bit of toxins in them. Not saying cayenne pepper is a toxic, but look for the ingredient uretha or something like that. I rarely use make-up and never wear lipstick. I do however is a lip balm regularly. In fact, I will order about a dozen tubes from my local Avon lady...it is of course Avon's Care Deeply Lip Balm. I love this stuff.

I do use both lipsticks and gloss almost all the time. Have not heard much about the cancer causing thing in lipsticks or gloss. But I also feel using these cosmetics make me so much dependent on them. Without these I feel very awkard going out, not because I use heavy makeup or so.

i wear lipstick and lip gloss. ^__^ i have a lot of them and it seems i have a collection. LOL i love lipstick that are shiny, those with glitters coz it makes my lips look so alive. ^__^ i use lip gloss when im at house or when im going to the grocery or anywhere not special, just to keep them moist coz they dry easily. i havent heard about cayenne pepper but i do have heard that some lip gloss and lipstick contain harmful substances. so as much as possible i dont buy lipstick or lip gloss just anywhere. i choose where i buy and the brand coz i want to be careful of my lips. ^__^

Marcia, I wear the long lastling lipstick that you are talking about, when I do wear lipstick.I only wear it when I go to my friends house. I have never heard of it causing cancer, but if it does, so be it. it seems everyday, we hear of something else causing cancer.If I stopped eating and drinking everything they say causes cancer, I guess i would be skinny by now.

I like to stay natural with myself I do wear makeup once in a blue moon but not often. It doesnt supprise me taht they would put cancer causing stuff in lipstick at all, Did yall hear about Bayer Asprin having aids in some of there stock and when they found it instead of getting rid of it the sent it over seas to other countrys. What is wrong with these companys that dont care about you but about how much money they make?

I don't wear lipstick or any other make-up at home but If I have to go out then I wear lipstick because my lips tend to look pale especially during cold weather. I've heard about that, I guess it depends on the lipstick ingredients. We should really be careful in choosing our lipsticks' brand.

I do not wear lipstick. I hate the taste of it and I don't like how it looks on me. Once in awhile I will wear tinted lipgloss. Most of the time I wear vanilla flavored chapstick that has sunscreen in it. I also have clear lipgloss that I wear on occasion.

I wear lipstick if I am going somewhere. A really light pink by Avon. I really like it. It goes well with my complexion. If I am staying at home I do not bother wearing lipstick. I do keep Blistex or Chapstick on my lips at all times, though.
