6 Greener, Safer, Better Lipsticks & Glosses

Guide to Better Lipsticks via mindfulmomma.com

There’s nothing like a good lipstick to make you feel ready to conquer the world. But did you know that many popular lipstick brands contain lead and other potentially harmful chemicals? That’s the last thing you want to worry about in your busy life.

Part of my mission to help you find greener, safer, better beauty and personal care products is to share some of the brands I’ve used and loved. All of these lipsticks and glosses are free from lead, parabens, petroleum, sulfates, phthalates, nano particles, artificial dyes and synthetic fragrances. And animal testing? No way!

Hope you groove on these lipsticks as much as I do! And please let me know what other brands you love or would like to know more about.
