As convincing as it may sound, it is completely false. Cosmetics are regulated by the FDA and in turn, would not allow dangerous amounts of lead into a product. Most lipsticks do not contain any lead; however, if it contains lead, the content would be so small that it would not have any effect.So, you are safe in using your favorite shade of lipstick. In general it is advisable to avoid applying lipstick for longer duration. If your job needs that, they make it a point to wipe it clean.

No, FDA has not set limits for contaminants, such as lead, in cosmetics. However, FDA does set specifications for impurities, such as lead, for color additives used in cosmetics. FDA approval of color additives is based on safety evaluations that consider the color additive's intended use(s) and estimated consumer exposure resulting from those uses. FDA-approved color additives are listed in Title 21 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). To learn more about FDA-approved color additives, please refer to Color Additives.
