Did You Know Women Eat 9 LBS Of Lipstick In a Lifetime?

Yes, you read that right, and no, it’s not just a catchy title. Read below and get the 411!

On average, women consume about 4 to 9 pounds of lipstick over their lifetime! While this number differs between every makeup user and how often they wear lipstick, it does affect everyone who wears lipstick. After all, lipsticks don’t just evaporate; they get smudged and eaten!

Toxin Ingestion Through Lipstick

What’s scarier than the idea of eating lipstick is eating lipstick made with the toxins found in conventional makeup. Lipsticks can contain levels of heavy metals, parabens, and chemicals, and the faster lipstick wears off, the bigger the impact of these toxins.

Studies done at UC Berkeley tested the use of over 30 lipsticks and lip glosses by young women, and they found high levels of heavy metals and ingestion. If lipstick is used on average twice daily, the Berkeley scientists found that the lipstick user ingests about 24 milligrams of product a day, which means about 1/16 of a pound per year. If you wouldn’t eat toxins and chemicals in your food, don’t put them on your lips!

What Can I Do?

You don’t have to give up wearing lipstick. Look for brands who pride themselves on smudge-proof, top quality products - made to stay on your LIPS and nowhere else! 

The usual tube lipstick is soft, creamy, and easily smudged off your lips into your mouth. But Beauty Bakerie doesn’t make just your average lipstick. We’ve perfected the formula for smudge-proof, waterproof lipstick that goes on wet and dries completely without budging ALL DAY! Don't take our word for it, see for yourself!

Products shown (left to right): Syruptitious Matte Lip Whip, I Like To Chai Chai Matte Lip Whip, Bubblegum Crisis Matte Lip Whip, Honey Matte Lip Whip. Use our oil-based Lip Whip Remover to remove at the end of the day.

As you can see, our signature matte and metallic Lip Whips have been vigorously tested for staying power. The colors did not run or smear a tiny bit (until removed with Lip Whip Remover)!

You don’t have to worry about eating your lipstick - or any of the harmful ingredients found in conventional makeup - if you choose our paraben-free, smudge-proof Lip Whips. What could be sweeter?!

Hey Charlotte! Our Lip Whips are less drying than most! If you check out some reviews on our Lip Whip product pages (, you’ll see lots of fans saying the same thing! When you prep for Lip Whips with our Sugar Lip Scrub, your lips will feel soft and smooth all day :)
