I was shocked to hear that a cancer risk could be lurking in your child's make-up.

Claire's stores in the Quad Cities and across the country are pulling 17 make-up products off the shelves after the kits tested positive for asbestos; a toxic substance linked to cancer.

The disturbing discovery was made after a Rhode Island mom sent her six-year-old daughter's make-up kit to an independent lab for testing.

The woman's employers then purchased kits in nine different states, all testing positive.

Claire's is conducting its own investigation and on Twitter said: "as always, the safety of our customers and products is our top priority." Claire's will issue full refunds to concerned customers.

Affected products listed on the retailer's website include it's Pink Glitter cellphone make-up compact and Bedazzled Rainbow Heart make-up set.
