Why I Threw My Lipsticks Away

When I was told, “the same lead that is banned from our paint is found in our lipsticks”  I was HORRIFIED.  Like WHAT?  Lead has negative effects on brain development and behavior in children, plus tons of health risks for adults is banned from our paint and gasoline, but it’s ok to hide it in cosmetics???  Uh, I think NOT!!!!  And that is why I threw my lipsticks away.  And that is also why I am SO thankful for Beautycounter.  It makes me think, what else is in my lipsticks and cosmetics that we don’t know about yet???

Beautycounter gives us a safe option, an option that we can TRUST, so we don’t have to be exposed to harmful chemicals like lead.  Because, we deserve it!!!  You know, we inadvertently ingest lipstick while wearing it.  So, if there is lead in your lipstick, it is soaking into your lips, but also getting in your mouth and your body is being exposed.  It is not ok that the beauty industry can get away with these things.  I am here to tell you that for me it is personal, I’ve made the switch to SAFE beauty and skincare with Beautycounter and I’m here to help you make the switch!!!


Beautycounter’s mission is to get safe products into the hands of everyone.  So, lipstick lovers, I’m calling on you!!!  Ditch those old lipsticks you can’t trust and switch to a SAFE option that doesn’t disappoint!!
