What’s in your lipstick???
Lately I’ve been into 2 things: eating healthy and bold lips! So when I was eating lunch with my mom last week and noticed my lipstick was ALL OVER my sandwich and I was eating it I joked with her saying “I wonder what the nutritional value of this lipstick is??” It was funny and we both laughed, but it really made me think about what IS in my lipstick. I can’t count how many times a day I lick my lips when I have lipstick on, or get lipstick all over my food or drink and I still eat the food or continue to drink my drink! I started to wonder why I wasn’t more careful and picky about something I put on my lips that could go into my body? So I turned to google to do some research on my drugstore lipsticks! The first article I found was titled Toxic Lipsticks (click Here to read the article) basically it says after a study on drugstore lipsticks they found high levels of lead in the products. There were about a billion more articles similar to this one and after researching for longer than I’d like to admit I decided instead of finding the BAD lipsticks I would find the GOOD ones! I’ve always loved cosmetic companies who promote products that are plant, water, and naturally based so when I found Younique I fell in love! All their products are water or naturally based, hypoallergenic, not tested on animals and much more! Right now they have three different lip products; a lip liner, a lip stain, and a lip gloss. They are a fast growing company that has new products coming out ALL the time so I’m excited to see what new lip products they come out with soon. Here is a closer look at the different lip products they have and what I like best about them!
I use my lip liner not just as a liner, but a lip stick as well! It works great for a matte look that seriously does not come off! I love how the more I apply the bolder it gets as well. If I want a day look I can apply one coat and then apply more for date nights and parties!
When I think of lipgloss I think of junior high and sticky nasty lips. (Seriously all I wore in junior high was lipgloss and I CAKED it on 😂) so when I saw they had lipgloss I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to try it, but I’m SO glad I did! When they say this lipgloss isn’t sticky they ain’t lying!! I like to use mine by itself or over the top of my lip liners for a different look!
I love Red lips, but my hubby doesn’t always love the red kiss marks I leave all over his face so this stuff is pure gold to him!! I can smooch him all I want and leave no evidence behind! 😉 These are perfect for when I have long work days and don’t have time to keep touching up my lips or worrying about if I have any on my teeth! Plus they look great on!
Well there you have it beauties! Don’t let yourself put nasty lip products into your body!! If you want to purchase any of these products click Here! You can thank me later!
