Yes this fact is true. The ingredient under discussion is called pearl essence(Some sources give this as pearlescence".) It's the silvery stuff found in fish scales that is used in some lipsticks, nail polishes etc., to make them shimmery. Pearl essence is obtained primarily from herring and is one of many by-products of large-scale commercial fish processing. Synthetic versions have been developed.
