This week, I went on a quest for a good pink lipstick and found two. Dr. Hauschka’s Transparent Pink is a bold pink and Josie Maran’s Precocious is the barely-there, wish-my-lips-were-like-this naturally pink. Neither contains ingredients that frighten me—which says a lot, now that I am aware of what goes into the making of most conventional cosmetics. I tell anyone who will listen that we should all be mindful of what we’re putting on and in our bodies—and lipstick is something that goes on AND in (yes, ingesting it is pretty much unavoidable). When I decided to “green” my makeup bag by choosing non-toxic products in favor of those I’d been using for years, lip products were the first ones I swapped. I was especially excited this week to find out that Josie Maran, who launched her line this year, is a “compact signer” for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, which means the company is committed to avoiding toxic ingredients and reporting what goes into the making of each product without hiding behind smokescreens. Phew.
