How many of you like wearing lipstick? Did you know that most lipsticks contain fish scales?? I was kinda shocked when I read this but not bothered enough to stop using it. Does this gross you out at all?

Are you serious? Ohmy that sounds nasty! eck! I don't even eat fish but whenever I wear lipstick I will have fish scales on .. thank God it doesn't taste like it although some lipsticks do have a nasty taste to them.. I think I will stick to glosses for awhile till this fades from my memory..lol

oh yes that shocked me. I thought they just tested on animals not added parts of them. lol kinda freaked me out.. maybe granny had the right idea. a little food coloring with a q-tip mixed the color you like dab on blot and a little chap stick or she used shortening a few times weird I know but she said that how they did it along time ago... but thanks for the info now I can go and tell my nieces and see how much they want to wear lipstick for the next few days..

Recently there has been a report on SK2 product in china ,it says that Sk2 content has a high content of a certain chemical that will cause Skin cancer , Actually in almost every make up product has such content but is low . So women don't use too much makeup before you regert yea

I seen a few products out about bare minerals they are some called bare esstenials and you can call and request a free sample my mom has bought some of there products its expensive but probaly worth it a blush alone cost 16.00 at a walmart store so if you wanted the works then it would cost a pretty penny and it last about 2 months.

Nope! Doesn't gross me out. Fish are pretty! I don't wear a lot of lipstick unless I am going out. But I wear gloss or lip balm. It gives my lips a tint of natural color. But knowing that they make lipstick out of fish scales would not make me stop using it. There are a lot of fish in the sea...and lipstick colors for that matter.

Yeah, I heard about that before. I don't wear lipstick much just because I don't like it that much. But knowing it has fish scales in it doesn't really bother me.

I don't wear lipstick and I did not know that it contained fish scales. It doesn't look like it! I wouldn't be grossed out if I wore it and I wouldn't stop wearing it!!!

I eat hotdogs, fish scales don't bother me. :D I actually knew that, but I'd forgotten. There are so many 'gross' products in so much of what we eat drink and put on our skin that I've really stopped worrying about it.

You'll be even more shocked when you find out what's in mascara... Of course most cosmetics also contain petroleum products as well. Talk about bad for your skin! I bet the natural look is looking pretty good now, huh?
