If you’re so over making (and ultimately, breaking) the typical New Year’s resolutions like getting in better shape or cutting back on those after-work glasses of wine, we have a beauty resolution for you that’ll be easy to keep and make you feel great. Towards the end of 2016, the Food and Drug Administration revealed the scary truth behind the ingredients found in our makeup – there’s more lead in lip products and other cosmetics like eye shadows, blushes and body lotions than you might think – so now the FDA is suggesting (but not mandating) a cap limiting the amount of this toxic ingredient in our products.

Even with this new recommended regulation, the idea that your love of lipsticks can result in consuming toxic chemicals isn’t a pretty thought. Luckily, plenty of beauty brands are making strides towards producing cleaner makeup. Why wait for the FDA’s regulations to go into effect? There’s no better time to give your beauty bag a refresh with non-toxic, green products than the start of the New Year.



This cruelty-free lipstick contains 72 percent organic ingredients, plus it’s free of gluten, mineral oil and artificial preservatives. Oh, and it even features rosehip oil, which helps boosts collagen in your lips over time!
