Estee Lauder Lip Defining Pencil-Peanut Oil

I bought the Estee Lauder Make-up gift set today and I was just reading the ingredient listing on the back of the box (no easy task) and under the Lip Defining Pencil it lists Peanut (Arachis Hypogaea) Oil in it. I can't find it in any of the other products that came in the gift set but I wanted you all aware it is in the Lip Liner.

Four of them came in the set so it looks like my neighbor will be getting an early X-mas gift.

I don't know whether the other products run the risk of cross-contamination. I don't normally wear Estee Lauder so I'm not familiar with their products. You would think I would be smart enough to read the ingredients BEFORE I left the store.

Stay Safe.

Oh my goodness. I have been wearing their lip-defining pencil for years, including almost every day of my 13-year-old PA son's life. And I have kissed him every day. Thanks for the warning!!!

Hi Kimm,
Do you know which Lancome products had the "may contain" warning on them?
Although I recently bought the Estee Lauder gift set, Lancome is what I usually wear.
I haven't noticed any warnings but I think I may have gotten lax in reading the ingredients on the cosmetics I routinely buy. (Not a good thing)!
Thanks for the warning!
Stay Safe.

Hey -- maybe one of our Canadian members is fluent in French & could help with the Lancome label? Anyone fluent in French out there?
(Sorry -- snow on the brain here-- not meaning to ignore anyone out there from France or other French-speaking countries who may frequent this board. The many Canadians popped into my head first!)
P.S. - 12/3/2000 2:58 PM: For those who took it upon yourselves to email me & "oh-so-sweetly" inform me that "WE SPEAK ENGLISH IN CANADA" -- my only response is a public "OH, GROW UP, PUHLEEZE." [img][/img]
'Nuff said.

As the resident French speaking Canadian on these boards - at least, I think I'm the only one(I'm NOT getting pulled into a political argument here), I'd be happy to volunteer to "translate" any French.
I'm a soap-and-water girl. I never use cosmetics, so someone'll have to type out the Lancome ingredient list here so I may translate for you. [img][/img]
p.s. In the TRAVEL forum, there's a thread entitled "TWA to Paris". I took the liberty to translate some useful terms concerning pa to French. I also volunteered to copy down the French instructions on how to administer the epi-pen, if anyone's interested/needs this, just let me know.

ajas_folks - Sorry your great idea received some negative feedback. Perhaps these "Canadians" who responded are unaware that we have 2 official languages in Canada - English AND French. I live in a small town in Ontario FAR from Quebec, and most of the people here are completely bilingual... alas, not me... As for getting email concerning this, why didn't they just post on the this thread? I would hope that info concerning my posts would remain on the board, not popping up in my email inbox, unless I specifically asked someone to contact me! Net etiquette! Take care, ajas_folks and keep on posting your great info - you've been very helpful in lots of other threads!

Ajas_folks, thanks for putting out a plea on our behalf of Lancome wearers. Like Cayley's mom, I too appreciate your help and contributions to this board.
arachide, thanks for coming forward to translate the ingredients for us. I have thrown all my boxes away listing the ingredients but as soon as I "restock" I will post the ingredients.
Thanks again and you all are very much appreciated! [img][/img]
Stay Safe.
