A lady who used a new lipstick, woke up choking with a huge swollen lip after suffering a severe allergic reaction to the new product, CoverGirl Queen Collection lipstick from a Walmart.
Lily Cleopatra Maurice is warning other women over social media to check the ingredients of their makeup before making a purchase.
A Facebook post revealing her reaction, Maurice writes, “WARNING! … Purchased lip this week woke up choking with huge swollen lips.” She explains she had to be rushed to the emergency room as a result and that she “could’ve died” in her sleep
It appears that it was only her bottom lip that swelled overnight – however, a doctor told her that “it could’ve been fatal” if she had been a heavier sleeper.
Cover Girls Response: Laura Brinker of CoverGirl Communications had this to say:
“As soon as we learned of this woman’s experience, which would certainly not be expected from lipstick use, we reached out to her to learn more about what happened and see how we could help. We are glad to hear she is okay and are awaiting her response. At CoverGirl, the safety of people who use our brand is our top priority. We conduct extensive testing on all our products to ensure they’re safe and effective.”
