Claire’s is issuing a major recall of some of their makeup…

According to TIME, a Rhode Island mother tested one of their makeup kits after finding some suspicious ingredients. To her horror, the makeup tested positive for tremolite asbestos…

For those who don’t know, there are links between asbestos and several forms of cancer, most commonly mesothelioma.

Luckily, the mom works at a law firm specializing in asbestos litigation, and she began working with her boss to test Claire’s products in nine other states for it. Unfortunately, each test was positive…

As a result, the company is now recalling many products while it conducts a safety investigation. In addition to the glitter makeup kits, an eye shadow and lip gloss palette and a glitter cell phone makeup compact face recall as well.¬†Claire’s is also providing refunds for all customers.

While there have been no reports of illness yet, we will have to wait and see what happens going forward.
