We all know that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, but did you know that you could be giving your special someone an unwanted surprise of lead? According to a study by the FDA, 400 popular lipsticks contain lead. Five lipsticks made by L’Oreal and Maybelline, two Cover Girl and two NARS lipsticks ranked among the top 10 most contaminated lipsticks tested. Not only does this expose every single one of us who wears lipstick, but it also affects every person we kiss! To ensure the safest (and sexiest) Valentine’s Day possible, we teamed up with one of our favorite brands, Au Naturale, for a #SAFEKISSES giveaway. We will be giving away 5 amazing Au Naturale lipsticks to 5 lucky followers who post a picture on Instagram of the lipstick you want to replace, tag @BEAUTYLIESTRUTH and @AUNATURALELIFE, and use the hashtag #SAFEKISSES.
Here is a quote from Au Naturale founder, Ashley Prange, about her commitment to safe, sexy products:
"Truth is Empowerment. At the age of 14 I was in hot pursuit to find a skincare and makeup to hide blemishes and make me feel beautiful. Beauty came with the discovery of a clean and pure lifestyle. While embracing a green perspective, my biggest challenge was to find a makeup range that was pure in content, performed professionally, and was transparent in nature. There was nothing on the market that met my demands, so I created what I needed. Au Naturale is pure beauty. I formulate and produce everything Au Naturale offers, and can personally voucher for it's organic integrity. Au Naturale is organic, natural, non toxic, vegan, cruelty free, made fresh, paraben free, non nano, and manufactured on the shores of Lake Michigan - my childhood home. I love what we have created and cannot share it with the world."
Happy Valentines Day and #SAFEKISSES to all!
