Treat Your Lips And Preserve The Planet

I've adored Tarte's 24.7 Natural Lip Sheers for years. These little sticks, complete with SPF 15, are easily some of the best tinted balms in the history of lip color. But when I saw one of their new limited-edition shades, Reduce, I was confused. Reduce? Is this a lip un-plumper?

Silly me-Reduce actually comes with two other shades, Reuse and Recycle. The trio, along with an adorable bag, make up the Be Good To Your Mother (Earth) 24.7 Reusable Natural Cotton Tote Set.

In addition to the Lip Sheer formula being free of unwanted chemicals and full of natural nourishers like beeswax, mango butter and vitamin E, the packaging is about as eco-friendly as it gets. The balms are wrapped in post-consumer recycled aluminum, and the tote is ideal for running errands without stocking up on more plastic bags.

And just in case you were worried, Reduce does nothing of the sort to your lips, leaving them with a sweet, coral color that keeps your pout pretty all day long.
