Undated -- The Food and Drug Administration says it will look into claims that some lipsticks contain potentially dangerous levels of lead.

The group says a third of the 33 red lipsticks examined by an independent lab contained a level of lead exceeding the FDA's limit for lead in candy. Some of the lipsticks that tested the highest were L'oreal's "True Red" and "Classic Wine," Covergirl's "Maximum Red," and Christian Dior's "Positive Red."

The FDA doesn't set lead limits for the cosmetic and doesn't test makeup before it hits store shelves.
