Falling Off The Wagon
Did you just hear that thud?
Yeah, that would be me falling off the green bandwagon.
After a Herculean effort to clean out the makeup case in favor of non-toxic cosmetics, my friend gifted me with a Wonder Woman lip glass in "Wonder Woman" from Mac's latest, special, limited edition collection. Just...can't......resist.
And you know what? It's pretty awesome.
The ingredient list really isn't that bad and the rich, deep-pink shade is a great way to brighten up the face. It is really long-lasting, too. After chowing down a fat piece of raisin-bread toast, the lip glass was still intact — even though a piece of raisin was still stuck in my teeth. I have to say, in my personal green-cleaning experience, the natural lip glosses have mostly been only so-so (except for one — stay tuned).
Even my green gurus — authors Siobhan O'Connor and Alexandra Spunt of "No More Dirty Looks" — say you don't have to throw everything out. Their advice is to use what you want, just know what's in it and what you're buying.
