It's no secret that I love red lipstick. It's in my bio and on my lips. It's in my blood—a penchant handed down from grandmother, to mother to me. Unfortunately, I'm at a point in my life where I have to super careful about my choices in life due to cancer, and that includes makeup and skin care. I do cheat once in awhile, but I try really, really hard not to expose myself to products that contain carcinogens.
Krysia Bonis, founder of Vapour Organic Beauty stated, "Did you know that the average woman eats over 10 pounds of lip gloss in her lifetime? A typical mainstream lipgloss is filled with a laundry list of chemicals, some of which are known carcinogens."
That's kind of a creepy thought, and one that all women should take seriously. Or, anyone who wears lipstick and lipgloss on a daily basis…
While I have a gazillion red lipsticks, most of which are in a constant rotation, I have a few that are special because they are chemical free, with natural and organic ingredients.
My name is Tracey, and I approve these red lipsticks.
