Does anyone know? Bitter lipstick taste?

Posted by   + Show Post


What's in Cover Girl, Clinique, and L'Oreal Lipsticks that tastes like shit and makes my lips pucker, but is not in Revlon, Aveda and E.L.F.?

Anyone wants to research lipsticks for me and tell me?

Lol. I hate the kind that flakes off and get on your teeth. Those are usually the sticky ones. Yuck.

I don't know exactly what it is. But it's sort of a good thing. If lipstick tastes good, I can't stop licking and have to keep reapplying it a million times.

lol!  While that's kind of true, I don't like the feeling of it on my teeth.  Not that I wear my lipstick on my teeth...cuz I almost never do.

On purpose.

Do they have sunscreen in them?  I find that lipsticks/lipbalms with an SPF are intolerably bitter.

Mica is usually used for the color or shimmer. Dimethicone is a silicone polymer. Cyclomethicone is a silicone based oil that stays in top of the skin. Candelilla Wax is used to keep lipstick together so it goes on smooth. Those are just some ingredients to makeup. Most places have different formulas they used to make theirs "unique" but generally it's those.

I used to work for Coastal Scents.

Mica? Dimethicone? Cyclomethicone? Candelilla Wax?

Is it one of those or all of them?  lol

I suppose I'll have to look them up and see, huh?

ColieO suggested deodorant...which, really, antiperspirant is the same kind of talc-y feeling taste that I'm thinking of.  I wonder which one of those is in  antiperspirant.

Maybe dimethicone then. Castor oil is in antiperspirant and lipstick too.

 No clue.  I can't stand the way lipstick feels on my lips so I never wear it.  But here's a bump for you.

Thank you!  That is a huge help.  Let's see what I can find out with this information.  :)

I guess I haven't noticed an off flavor, I don't wear lipstick much, usually I just wear gloss or chapstick.  Lipstick can go bad though, I don't know what's in it, but I know that it turns rancid and gets a funny taste / smell.  I read somewhere that lipstick should be thrown away after 1-2 years.
