Kissing can be fishy or dangerous to your health
Today I was horrified to read that ..
Most lipstick contains fish scales!
But what I am really wondering is why that lipstick sales went up during the early start of the financial melt down.
Lipstick effect, an observation that lipstick sales tend to rise during economic downturns
Is this known phenomena due to woman kissing and cuddling their husbands and saying “Hey honey money is not every think” or something similar when their men get depressed due to losses of jobs or money? Or is because woman depressed buy new makeup to make the look and feel better?
It has been estimated that in her lifetime a woman ingests upto 4 pounds of lipstick.
Wow, that’s a lot of lip puckering, possibly 3 or 4 times a day or even more in front of a mirror. Did you also know that most woman can not pass a mirror by with out looking to see how good or bad they look.
Evidently kissing a woman that buys very expensive lipstick could be dangerous…
Experts have found that many famous and expensive lipstic brands contain unacceptably high and dangerous to the health levels of lead. Scientists believe that lead causes numerous health problems, including reproductive dysfunction.
Dysfunctional, yep I felt that way after kissing some women in my life, wobbly at the knee’s and now I know why and I put it down to being young and un-experienced, lol. However it could be a health threat as bad as that being caught with lipstick on your collar by ones wife.
But however further research about lipstick disproved the horrors that women have fish scales in their lipstick..
Frosted lipsticks -- These are mainly made by adding a pearlising agent, often a Bismuth compound such as bismuth oxychloride. In the ancient times derivatives from the fish scales were used to give the pearly effect. Today it is rarely used. Another compound Bismuth Subcarbonate is used to protect the thin covering of the lips. It is not unsafe if ingested, but may cause mild skin irritations or even dermatitis.
