Lily Cleopatra Maurice went to her local Florida Walmart to purchase a lipstick from the popular Queen Latifah-backed make-up brand for black women, CoverGirl Queen to wear on her husband’s birthday. What happened after she rocked the lipstick was alarming.
Maurice’s lips swelled well over 2 times of their original size after one application of the lip color. The mother of four explained in a Facebook post that she woke up choking in such a manner that could’ve easily turned fatal.
She later took to Facebook via a video from the emergency room to warn future consumers.
Maurice mentions the emergency room physicians could not determine which specific ingredient in the cosmetic product caused the reaction as the lipstick packaging does not provide a label.
The swelling in Maurice’s case could last anywhere from 4–7 days according to emergency room physicians.
Below are pictures Maurice shared of her lips from the emergency room.
