Small amounts of lead and other dangerous chemicals are in some lipsticks. For the women reading this, are you concerned about this and are you carefully about what brand of lipstick you use?

Personally, I'm not concerned, but I'm not an all day, every day lipstick wearer.

It kind of reminds me of a number of years back when there were all sorts of scare reports about the red dye number something-or-other in lipsticks. But it turned out that you would have to eat a truckload of lipsticks to ingest enough to be a problem.

No.
Not concerned, and don't care.
Give me hard evidence why this is important and then I might care. Until then, a non-issue.

Every woman that you see with lipstick is going to die at some time. Don't take a chance.

It should be a concern for women, but some don't care. Bite beauty is a decent lip line with minimal chemicals.

Stopped wearing lipstick years ago, as I noticed the color always changes and looks different once it's applied to my lips. It never turns to a color that agrees with my skin tone.

I typically use lip gloss or lip balm, though, and cannot be without one on my person at all times. Made for a strange trip to Munich for a connecting flight to Split several years ago as I had lost my lip balm, so had to buy one in one of the airport shops. Grumbled about paying nearly $10 for a tin of lip balm, but found a new favorite in Agatha Ruiz De La Prada. And it lasted quite a while!

Now I use EOS almost exclusively, and I've tried about everything. Pacifica and Burt's Bees have pretty tinted lip balms but they also contain mica or some other shimmery flaky bits that make me break out so ix nay on that! If only they would bring back my lifetime favorite, Cherry Cola Kissing Koolers by Maybelline, I would be in complete lip bliss.

This link has a list of those tested and their lead/cadium/aluminum, etc. levels:
Which 20 Lipsticks Contain the Most Lead? | Mother Jones
It appears even lip balms from Burt's Bees have lead in them, according to the article, so "natural" doesn't mean better. At the bottom of the article it mentions WetnWild as one with a low lead content (expensive brands doesn't mean it's less contaminated).

I guess like the first article said, it is probably wise to not re-apply your lipstick too many times per day.
