A woman has revealed that she is addicted to eating make-up - despite the fact that the chemicals in the products are seriously damaging her heart.

In last night's episode of My Strange AddictionBrittoni, 22, from Toldeo, Ohio, reveals that she loves eating eyeshadow and consumes around 15 to 20 compacts a day.

She has been secretly hooked on cosmetics since she was about nine years old when she got hold of her mother's make-up, and explained that she likes the idea of cosmetics making her beautiful from the inside out.

'It's like a craving of your favorite candy bar,' she said. 'I prefer  the gray, white and brown colors, they taste cleaner than dark colors.'

Brittoni shops for her make-up at drugstores, and tests each compact before she commits to a purchase.

'When I come into the store, I have to taste to make sure I bought the right one,' she says. 'If it's not the right kind, nobody seen me lick it? I will put it back.

'I don't want to get stuck with something I'm not going to eat or wear.'

But the habit has already had serious implications. Brittoni developed heart disease at the age of 12, something her doctor believes could have been caused by chemicals in the products she has been eating.

 

 

The show charts Brittoni confessing her addiction to her family and fiance Josh. Once her family became aware of her problem, they urged her to seek medical attention.

OMG she is stupid and sick inside her head.  She needs a mental health professional. All those chemicals are taking out the hair on her head as well as killing her.  Is it that she is mentally ill or just plain greedy? I will give her the benefit of doubt. SHE IS MAD I TELL YOU!!!!

@ Mz. Nini thank you everything is not for everybody, i promote health it dont matter how big a person is, its about being healthy eventually everything will be where they are suppose to, one day at a time, some people just sit there and expect a miracle each day you wake everything you do lives with you, if its positive you will see positive if you live negative and irresponsible thats the result you will see

Comment by Mz. Nini on February 4, 2014 at 6:47pm

I can respect that Mr.1.

@Mz.Nini Great points Mz.Nini but her head needs fixing too, she is not all together up there. She got issues!!!!

Comment by mr1stroke on February 4, 2014 at 10:50am

i dont need them big and beautiful i rather have them slim and sexy or thick and sexy, by the way a thick girl dont have no jelly on her, down south they are call big bones, just bones and meat no jelly fat shaking all around, they are just fit and healthy

Comment by mr1stroke on February 4, 2014 at 10:49am

@Mz. Nini  if a person is 300lbs and dont think he or she is unhealthy unless they are real tall , something is wring with them, and yes you are right many men love their women fat and over weight, but thats not for me, i pass on that, if a woman is 5'7 and 300 lbs what is she looks like, where is the beautiful part, oh i forgot this day they call them selves big and beautiful, people have words of encouragement for anything that needs attention
