toxic make up
« on: Thu Jun 14, 2018 - 07:44:29 »
 Good morning Ladies.  :-)
 I hate to barge in on the ladies forum, but I just heard a report on television about the toxicity of make up, and lipstick in particular. They reported that most lipsticks have 4 times the amount of lead that is allowed in homes.
 I guess there are brands and all natural lipsticks out there, but you need to do some research on what you are using. Check on the harmful chemicals they use.
 Just thought I'd caution the fairer sex, as we men couldn't exist without you.
 Continued blessings.

Sorry geronimo, gotta move this to general discussion.

This thread reminds me a scene from Get Smart with the poison lipstick that then backfired because Smart had his fake lips on  rofl

Thanks for caring and sharing, geronimo.

I think of all my lipsticks (and this photo is just my most often used - there are many more) I have only 2 tubes of natural lipstick, so now I need to check the ingredients in all of them.

I have often thought it a little crazy to paint chemicals on your face. Much of it must get into the body.
I have never seen the point, and its interesting that 2 of my aunts who have recently died aged 93 and 85 both had amazing skin and never wore make up.
When you think of painting it on, and the wiping and rubbing that is needed to get it off each day, it must stretch the skin and not allow it to breath properly either when its on.

Some women like to primp and do girly things - enhancing their natural beauty a little and have fun doing so. I love everything about being feminine and doing fun, girly things - getting my hair done, nails, buying a new tube of pretty lipstick, wearing pretty clothes....

Other women don't like to do girly, feminine things. That's ok. To each their own. Neither is crazy.

I am also very feminine, I love wearing flowy dresses in the summer for example.
I just don't see the point of make up, and I am married to a man who isn't bothered either. I just think its bad for our skin and bodies and is also very expensive.

I appreciate a woman that spends time enhancing her already beautiful features, I find it very attractive and thus empowering for women to embrace their beauty to the fullest extent.

Call me shallow if you will but physical attraction is alive and well and the new Miss America guidelines will do little to quell it.

Thanks Alan.

It is nice to get a male perspective.

I do know that some men prefer the natural look on a woman. Nothing wrong with it. Just a personal thing.

My Grandmother used a little face powder to keep the shine down and a little lipstick.

I think a lot of older women over do, to try and make themselves look younger??? But they have lost the art of growing old gracefully. Especially when the eye shadow is either covered over with drooping eyelids or it creeps into the wrinkles around the eyes. Same can be said for heavy lipstick that does not stay put.

But there are advantages for some amount.  Myself for example. I no longer wear the eye shadow... (And when I did use eyeshadow, back in the day, my eyes looked just like Donna Mills in Knot's Landing... for those of you who remember that and her there)  .....that I used to because of aging eyes, but to go totally without
you would look at me and think I was an albino.  My eyebrows are the palest blond... So pale that if I did not use any brow it looks like I shave them off.

My eyelashes are the same paleness of my brows.... So mascara is definitely needed. ( And a scant amount of liner or I would need too much mascara to
make my eyes even noticed.)  And some lipstick  These days that is all for me.... No blush any longer cause I just look odd.

So if I did not.... you have this red hair sitting ontop of a totally blank looking face.... And that is the truth

Of course, there are women who take the whole makeup thing too far.

I enjoy my make up free days. Not because I think anything about it being right or wrong, but because I am learning to be okay with myself just the way God made me. Haha.  I used to feel that unless I was totally done up, I was offensive to others. Now, I'm 50 and I'm just over it.

I do put on make up to have a date with my man or church or something like that...but last Sunday, our oldest dd needed some mom time and a heart to heart.  That meant we were running way late for adult bible study and so, I just popped on my glasses, put a few curls in my hair and we were off.  It was liberating!

My dh loves me plain faced and is always so kind to tell me sweet things, but when I put on a little eye make up, he says things like "you are looking *extra* beautiful to me today! I don't know why." haha.

I know some of them cashiers at the Walmarts that could use some makeup, and a good shave.  And that includes their mutton chops.   rofl
