Hello Friends,

Hi pretty women, how are you all?


Today, I am here to talk about another girlish shade – Tickled Pink, which is again a tricky shade unlike other gorgeous shades in my vanity case, but very soon, I will be discarding it out as it is one among the 0 worst cosmetics which have higher lead content (measured in ppm) as per yahoo news posted last year. Please read on further to know further details.

This shimmery, slight metallic pink shade comes in the usual dull golden opaque packaging. It’s absolutely travel friendly and classic packaging.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lip Color in Tickled Pink:

As scorching summers are approaching here speedily, I feel like going for light or rose/mauve shade of lipsticks.  I already own many mauve shades, but after Maybelline Pink Pop broke my heart, I was really keen to own a decent pink in my vanity case; however, I am  experiencing hard luck with lip colors right now, I could not get a single desired shade of pink till now.

This particular shade is slight metallic dull pink with shimmers, which is again a tricky shade.  Either it will glow up your face or it will ruin your whole make over 😛 Since my face is slightly tanned after wandering outside in the sun, I can see disastrous results after wearing it on my lips.  I feel its not suitable for Indian skin tones and after my friend told me about FDA’s survey of 100 top most brand lipsticks containing harmful lead (measured in ppm), I am really confused about this particular lipstick.

L'Oreal Tickled Pink 12

I have no issues with staying power, texture, taste and fragrance of L’Oreal Color Riche Formula, they are extremely hydrating, creamy yet light on lips packed with vitamin and anti-ageing properties, but their lead content is really bothering me. I am giving you list of 10 top brand lipsticks which are recorded to be rich in lead content (measured in ppm) below as per Yahoo news last year:

1. Maybelline Color Sensational, Pink Petal (7.9 ppm)
2. L’Oreal Colour Riche, Volcanic, (7.0 ppm)
3. NARS Semi-Matte, Red Lizard (4.93 ppm)
4. Cover Girl Queen Collection, Ruby Remix, (4.92 ppm)
5. Nars Semi-Matte, Funny Face (4.89 ppm)
6. L’Oreal Colour Riche, Tickled Pink (4.45 ppm)
7. L’Oreal Intensely Moisturizing Lipcolor, Heroic (4.41 ppm)
8. Cover Girl Continuous Color, Warm Brick (4.28 ppm)
9. Maybelline Color Sensational, Mauve Me (4.23 ppm)
10. Stargazer Lipstick, #103 (4.12 ppm)

I do not know about the authenticity of yahoo news but FDA also researched on 100 lipsticks brands and as per FDA also, this particular L’Oreal Tickled Pink shade is unsafe because of its bothering lead content. However in California, which has the nation’s most stringent laws about lead in consumer products, safety limit of 5.0 ppm lead is permissible for lipstick. Still, I am determined not to wear Tickled Pink from today onward.  I won’t recommend you to get this particular shade. Other L’Oreal Lip Color range is safe enough, maybe I will try other safe limit L’Oreal Lip Colors excluding the ones included in the FDA list.

Let’s sum up pros and cons:

Pros of L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lip Color in Tickled Pink:

  • Travel friendly and classy packaging.
  • Heavenly smell and average staying power.
  • Packed with anti-ageing properties.
  • Creamy, hydrating and silk finishing on lips.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lip Color in Tickled Pink:

  • As per FDA and Environmental Working group (EWG cosmetics database) report their lead content is b/w 4.45 ppm – 7 ppm which may be bothersome for anyone especially expecting and nursing mums.
  • Transfers slightly.

I am huge fan of L’Oreal goodies but after reading about its highest rate of lead content (ppm) among worldwide cosmetics, I am thinking of looking for FDA and EWG safe cosmetics list first before getting any cosmetic. Its always better to play safe rather than facing disastrous consequences, what say? I hope it will help you!

Stay blessed and beautiful dolls.
