A new study involving 22 brands of lipstick found that 55 per cent contained trace amounts of lead. More here
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Well, i guess that puts an end to any thoughts of being a drag queen.

You could try staining your lips with berry juice, Tilt.

No. I think it is all just too much work.

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Being a female looks like way too much work.

Agreed. That is probably why the lazier half of humanity choose to be reborn as males ... :twisted:

I think this is true. My ex wife wore alot of lipstick and i did kiss her at times and she quite often remarked at how stupid i was. She was apparently unscathed.
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.

I have worn lipstick only three times, once when acting in this skit wherein I had to dress as a woman (they really should have given me a longer dress, to cover my legs - 'eww') and a couple of times when my daughters insisted on giving me a 'makeover' and I, doting dad that I am, let them subject me to this 'treatment' (which even included a wig). The eye-liner was actually quite difficult to get off. As for this powdery substance they applied to my face, it kind of stank. I don't know how you ladies put up with it all.
