Contest Directions: Here's the shocking news for today. L'Oreal lipstick was found to contain the dangerous levels of lead - the highest level in the US lipstick market. The research was done by an independent research group that studied levels of toxins contained in different lipstick brands sold in the United States. The study showed that 61 percent of sold lipstick contains detectable levels of lead, with L'Oreal being the prime offender. Lead is a metal that is toxic to human body and causes a damage to the brain, blood vessels, and may lead to infertility.
The above report suggests that L'Oreal lipstick creates looks that literally could kill - it is a dangerous weapon - when it comes to looks and health.
Photoshop lipstick any way you wish. Make other things shaped as lipstick. Make unusual things appear from a lipstick tube (snail, cigar, etc.). Merge lipstick with other objects - weapons, etc. These are just some ideas.
