Lavera wants you to get the lead out—of your lipstick, that is. The Germany-based purveyor of skincare and cosmetics products is issuing a challenge: Give your old lipstick the kiss-off and it'll match its shade with one of its organic smooch sticks, which you can purchase at $10 off.
If you're still puckering up to conventional lipsticks, odds are you're cozying up to the insidious neurotoxin. After all, more than 60 percent of 33 popular lip smackers tested by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (including Cover Girl, L'oreal, and Christian Dior), were tainted by lead.To participate in Lavera's lipstick switch, simply mail your old lipstick, along with your e-mail, to the following address:
Lavera Skin Care North America
12015 115th Ave. NE, Suite E110
Kirkland, WA 98034
The company will drop you an electronic missive with its color-matched alternative and a $10 coupon code (a 50 percent value).
