It is possible that you have a valid lawsuit and could recover damages from the manufacturer and the company that markets the lipstick, if they are different.

You will need a medical expert to testify as to how the lipstick caused the reaction and then you may need an additional expert who can testify as to the manufacturing process.

One thing that I see a problem with is whether your allergy is common and whether the substance causing the allergy is listed s an ingredient. The experts will be able to testify as to that though.
