My Lipstick Story

So I'm transitioning to all natural/organic makeup and I've recently reviewed a well known brand cosmetics line. I know that there is more to try and I'm still looking for my staple products. Anyways, it all started when I found myself struggling to zip up my makeup bag. My stash wasn't to the point where it was becoming a problem. But it was enough to start making some changes or it soon would be a problem.

As I was de-cluttering, I was able to find lipstick/gloss that I haven't touched in ages. I was like there you are!!! Where have you been? Here's the thing... I would buy them, try it once or twice, then buy another item that looked exactly the same as the first one. Then hit the repeat button. I would lie to myself saying it's not the same. I finally learned that a lot of these products were pretty much the same just in different packaging.

I also started looking into the ingredients being listed and what I found was not good. I really hate how the majority of these products are made for us to enjoy but is causing harm to our bodies. There were ingredients listed that were cancer causing. This is why when October rolls around and I see these specially marked packages made by these companies talking 'bout finding a cure, I give them MAJOR side eyes. If you would stop making these products with cancer causing ingredients, we wouldn't be where we are now.

Anyways, I decided to stop giving these companies my money. It was then that I seriously started looking into all natural/organic makeup products and brands. Starting with what I put on my lips. I know these companies are out there. It's going to take some research and I've found a few that I look forward to trying and reviewing.

That's my story. What's yours?
