With More Lead in Lipstick, Choose Natural Beauty

But a recent study of popular sticks and glosses found they contained lead, chromium and other heavy metals—many at levels that could be toxic. What’s a girl to do? Look for truly natural lip color with ingredients you recognize, like a brand-new sexy ruby slick from La Bella Figura. The natural beauty innovator is sponsoring this summer’s hottest event in Los Angeles and you’re invited!

A new study found lead in lipstick. What’s a girl to do? Look for natural beauty ingredients you recognize, like those from La Bella Figura. You’re invited to their party next month! Frankly, the new study about heavy metals in lipsticks scared the hell out of me. That’s because if you’re a “heavy user” like me, slicking up as many as 14 times a day, you could be eating as much as 83 milligrams of these metals, which have been linked to brain disorders. That’s four pounds in 60 years!

But La Bella Figura has got you covered. Free of animal testing, GMOs, processed ingredients, petrochemicals, parabens, silicones, artificial emulsifiers and other nasties, the source their ingredients from small, family-run farms that are—as much as possible—raw, wild and organic.

Known for their bestselling skincare, La Bella Figura’s new hydrating lip color—aptly named Lissette La Coquette—is part of their brand new More Than Makeup line, which nourishes the skin with anti-aging and active ingredients. Lissette is jam-packed with ultra-hydrators like avocado oil and cupuacu butter, all mixed up with a drop-dead red natural tint. No heavy metals here!

If you’re in Los Angeles this summer, join me to celebrate the launch of More Than Makeup at LBF’s free event, A Night for Green Beauty on Thursday, August 7th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the W Hotel in Westwood. A full 24 natural beauty brands will be shoppable and Pressed Juicery is sponsoring, yum! Plus, you can indulge in a mini mani or makeover, and sample delicious natural perfumes at the scent bar.

Out of town? You can get some of the goods from GoodeBox, which put together a box of six full-sized samples from participating brands. This limited-edition Goodebox is valued at $350, but can be yours for just $110—and all proceeds benefit Baby2Baby, a non-profit that helps new moms in need.

But wait, there’s more! Next month, ONE lucky Mommy Greenest reader will win a full set of La Bella Figura’s new More Than Makeup collection, worth $134. Woot!
