Your lipstick has lead in it. HealthDay News reports that a new analysis by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has concluded that lead levels in many lipsticks are higher than those reported in 2007 by the consumer advocacy group Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.

USDA used new techniques to determine the lead levels of 22 different lipsticks, all in shades of red. The average level of lead found in the lipsticks was 1.7 parts per million, which is more than 10 times higher than the standard imposed on candy.
