do some lipsticks contain lead
Hello, Thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.

Can understand your concern as lead in any product would be an issue for usage.

The FDA has issued a report on concerns by people on this topic. From studies done, the FDA has found no dangerous amounts in lipstick.

Here is their report for your review:

As for brands that have traces of lead in their lipstick, here is a report from The Washington Post:
