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.

Following several tests, he tells her that she is putting herself at risk of cancer and further heart problems.

OMG....something is seriously wrong with this girl.  I don't watch this show but I have seen some of the things that people are addicted to and I guess it's no different than a person being addicted to cigaretts, drugs and even alcohol...this just doesn't make any sense to me.  I hope they find her the help she needs before this addiction kills her.

Any why not Mr.1?  I personally know men that love and cherish their 300+ wives or women, and it is not for the money. Some of these men do not even want their woman to work.  Nowadays, love is beyond black or white, skinny or fat.  There is always, and I mean always somebody for some1; sometimes it just takes longer to find the right one!

Carribbeanrose, I never heard of PICA, which is compulsive cravings to eat nonfood items.  This woman has an addiction, and when it falls under the PICA category, she may be short of a body chemical.  Not as an addiction, but I eat power. My doctor told me because of my low-deficiency anemia, I was craving more starch, which produce sugar. When my mother is pregnant, she craves cigarette ashes. 

She needs to get a CBC and possibly take iron pills.  She is not mentally instable, trust me I work with them. She is simply low on some body chemical that is triggering another reaction.  

I still stand firm about how I will be purchasing my make-ups from now on -- that was a disgusting move she done.

They need to refer her to a mental health specialist so she can be evaluated for possible inpatient treatment before she ends up killing herself by ingesting those chemicals.

If you want to be beautiful inside too, eats lots of fruits, fresh veggies, water , exercise. This woman has a disease  called PICA. She needs help. She is mentally ill.
