Green or Unclean: MAC Lustre Lipstick

I love MAC lipsticks, especially the lustres. My go-to lip products are Viva Glam Gaga and Viva Glam V. I decided to see how these measured up on the Skin Deep Database.

Ingredients: Ricinus communic (castor) seed oil, dipentaerythrityl, hexahydroxystearate/hexastearate/hexarosinate, euphorbia cerifera (candellilla) wax/candelilla cera/cire de candelilla, caprylic/capric triglyceride, pvp/hexadecene copolymer, polyethylene, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, cetyl acetate, lanolin oil, cetyl lactate, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), polydecene, beeswax/cera alba/cire d'abeille, gylcine soja (soybean) seed extract, tocopheryl acetate, ascorbyl palmitate, ceramide 3, synthetic wax, synthetic beeswax, silica calcium sodium, borosilicate, alumina, tin oxide, acetylated lanolin alcohol, cetyl alcohol, vanillin, [+/- mica, titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), bismuth oxychloride (CI 77163), blue 1 lake (CI 42090), carmine (CI 75470), red 6 (CI 15850), red 6 lake (CI 15850), red 7 lake (CI 15850), red 21 (CI 45380), red 28 lake (CI 45410), red 30 lake (CI 73360), red 33 lake (CI 17200), yellow 5 lake (CI 19140), yellow 6 lake (CI 15985), yellow 10 lake (CI 47005)]

This lipstick (the Viva Glam Gaga) received a rating of 5. I knew that there was no way this lipstick could be clean when I saw how many ingredients were in it.

Verdict: Unclean
Le sigh.
