EOS lip balm allegedly caused skin damage

You've probably seen the spherical shape and may even have one stashed away in your make-up bag — EOS, or Evolution of Smoothness, lip balm that is hugely popular with fashionistas like Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian as well as with regular folks.

But there may be cause for concern among those who dab the product on their lips to keep them from chapping. A consumer has filed a class-action lawsuit against the makers of the balm. Her pleading alleges that the make-up product damaged her skin and left her lips bleeding and dry, causing her to suffer in pain for a week-and-a-half after applying it.

In the suit that was filed on Jan. 12 by celebrity attorney Mark Geragos, the plaintiff seeks both financial damages as well as corrective advertising for the product. She claims that the lip balm is "anything but smooth," and her allegations include that the product caused all of the following:

-- Blisters

-- Skin cracks

-- Bleeding

-- Rashes

-- Loss of lip pigmentation

According to plaintiff, her reaction was so serious that she sought medical treatment. Apparently, just hours after her first application, the adverse reaction developed. She shared pictures on her social media accounts of her damaged facial area and discovered multiple other consumers had similar problems after using EOS lip balm.

However, the company stands firmly behind their products, as evidenced by a Facebook post made the day after the lawsuit was filed. They claim that the woman's litigation is without merit and countered plaintiff's allegations by stating, "Our products are safe [and] made with the highest-quality ingredients and they all meet or exceed all safety and quality standards set out by our industry."

If you experience problems or are injured from the use of a product, you could have a cause of action for a product liability case.
