MY LIPSTICK REVIEW: Testing MAC lipstick, Elsas and Jordana for cancer causing Lead; See The conclusion (Photos)

MAC Lipstick, Jordana and Elsas on my clean before scratching a ring. See more pictures below.
Cancer is not something to joke with or ignore talks about. What inspired this test is the Lipstick Testing article I received in my inbox this morning (see below). Those of us with dry lips cannot completely stop using lipstick or gloss because cracked lips will come visiting.When I got it, didn't want to post here on the blog so I posted to Nigerian wives connection Facebook Page. People immediately started sharing. Then,  it felt good that none of the lipstick brands I use is listed ...cancer because they contain so much lead. Then again, I said to myself "That list is too short to be exhaustive, let me test my lipstick first to be sure'. I brought them out, rubbed on my palm, scratched a ring and the result below is my conclusion.

After rubbing the Gold ring repeatedly, it was only the MAC lipstick that
turned dark. Your very own Nigerian made Elsas that competes favourably with brands abroad came out clean. One of my favourite brands, Jordana (Affordable, yet very good), also came out clean. Our Almighty preferred by most women... MAC lipstick that I was ready to defend even with my last drop of sweat,before carrying out the test, I don't know what happened but, as soon as I started rubbing the gold ring on it, colour started getting darker and darker. 

My palm before rubbing the three brands of lipstick.
Rubbing the lipstick, about to scratch the gold ring on them. First is MAC, followed by Red Jordana and Elsas (Bottom)
After scratching gold on the second row. See the Mac up there, followed by Red Jordana and Dark brown Elsas. What do you see?
Look closer. Any change in colour? Is there really NOTHING that can replace lead in lipstick?
The test says; any lipstick that changes to a darker colour when rubbed on gold contains lead; the darker, the higher the lead content. I had to do this test because we all know what is happening now in Nigeria. The rate at which people die from cancer is now alarming but you may not know if you do not visit hospitals. 
Read the post that inspired my lipstick test below and if you have brands that are not listed. please rub on your palm, scratch a gold ring there and share pics to save other women:

There should be something that can make lipstick stay longer aside lead... Or, are they saying that lead is irreplaceable?

How To Know if Your Lipstick Contains Cancer Causing Lead


This comes from someone
Who works in the breast cancer unit at Mt. Sinai Hospital , in Toronto ..

From: Dr. Nahid Neman
If there is a female you care anything about..,
Share this with her.
Some time ago,a lipstick brand called 'Red Earth'
Decreased their prices from
$67 to $9.90.
It contained lead.
Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.
Some lipstick brands that contain lead are:
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
LL18 and many more brands. ..
The higher the lead content,
The greater the chance of causing cancer.
After doing a test on lipsticks,
It was found that the Y.S.L. Lipstick
Contained the most amount of lead.
Watch out for those lipsticks Which are supposed to last longer on the lips
If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the higher content of lead.
Here is the lipstick test you can do yourself:
1. Put some lipstick on your hand
2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick
3. If the lipstick colour changes to black,
Then you know the lipstick contains lead.
Please share this information to all your Sisters, Wife.., Daughters,..., and other female family members and friends.
This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre
Dioxin Carcinogens Cause Cancer..

    You believe everything. Did you consider that there might be something other than lead that is present in MAC that is not present in the other lipsticks. You really think that MAC would get away with putting a high quantity of lead in their lipsticks. Do you think the FDA is NAFDAC?
    By the way, all lipsticks contain lead in safe amounts, even Jordana. You used a wrong test to determine lead content.
