GlitterSniffer Cosmetics Pigments Are Not FDA Approved for Lip Use

A fan posted to the GlitterSniffer Cosmetics Facebook page today about GlitterSniffer Cosmetics lip gloss. The fan had never tried the lip gloss and was interested. GlitterSniffer Cosmetics helpfully suggested that any of their pigments could be mixed with a clear lip gloss and used as a gloss.


Except that they shouldn't be mixed and used as a gloss because as per GlitterSniffer Cosmetics own ingredient lists NONE of their pigments are FDA approved for lip use.

Here are the current ingredient lists for GS products.
Harajuku Full Size:
  
Harajuku Samples (which don't match the full size):
Unicorn Collection:



An example of the catch all "May contain..." ingredient listing on all products sold through Artfire:

Neither Ultramarines nor Chromium Oxide Green are FDA approved for lip use
 
Listings for Ultramarines (powder form) can be found here, here, and here.
Ultramarine Violet shown for illustrative purposes. None of the three Ultramarines are lip approved.
Listings for Chromium Oxide Green can be found here and here.
Chromium Oxide Green shown for illustrative purposes. Neither of the Chromium Oxide Greens are lip approved.
Either one or both of these ingredients appear on every ingredients list for every product being sold by GlitterSniffer Cosmetics right now. To suggest that a customer use a product in a way that is not FDA approved has the potential for causing harm to the customer. GlitterSniffer Cosmetics, having been "rockin' out bright pigments since 2008" should know that.
 
This demonstrates that either Glittersniffer Cosmetics is knowingly giving misinformation about their products and their uses, or does not know itself how exactly their products may be utilized safely. Either way it leaves the consumer at risk.

  1. It doesn't help either that one ingredient listing says "vegan and eye approved" where another just says "eye approved". :/
