(KRON) – Those sexy lips created by lipstick and glosses could be harmful to your health.

A new study by UC Berkeley researchers tested 32 lip products commonly found in drugstores and department stores and found they contained lead, chromium and seven other metals.

The study highlights a need to have more oversight from the Food and Drug Administration, especially since the united states has no standards for metal content in cosmetics.

This means consumers have no way of knowing what the products contain because lipstick manufacturers are not required to list ingredients.
