Lipstick Contains Fish Scales - Fact or Myth?
 

           


 

So, Is it true? Does Lipstick Really Contain Fish Scales?

Well, as a matter of fact - Yes, this is actually true! Some lipstick does contain something called "pearl essence". Also known as " pearlescence ", this silvery substance is literally found in fish scales!

It is primarily sourced from herring and can be found in many lipsticks, nail polishes and other cosmetic products due to the shimmer effect it creates.  

So wait - I am putting fish scales on my face and lips? Well, actually most cosmetics now contain a synthetic version of pearl essence. But does yours?

I think its time to do some research and find out if your lipstick contains fish scales.....
