    Should viewers be worried about lead in beauty products like lipstick? The Food and Drug Administration says:

    • Reports about lead in lipstick date back to the 1990s.
    • The FDA says it will continue to investigate this issue to make sure that there continue to be no safety concerns for consumers.
