Law & Order Stars Design Eco-Friendly Cosmetics

Both Angie Harmon (Law & Order) and Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order SVU) have designed natural beauty lipsticks for Cargo Cosmetics.

Here’s the story from the Columbia Tribune:

Finally, you can do something for the environment and look good doing it. Taking a new spin on “natural beauty,”
Cargo Cosmetics Cargo Cosmetics has introduced its PlantLove collection, featuring 20 lipsticks — 11 designed by celebrities including Mariska Hargitay (“a sheer warm nude cream”) and Maria Menounos (“a sheer poppy red”) and nine inspired by “places of ecological beauty” such as Yellowstone (“a rich rose plum shimmer”) and Killarney (“a soft terracotta pink shimmer”).

Almost everything about these lipsticks is plant-based. They’re made from a botanical formula using orchid complex, meadowfoam seed oil, jojoba and shea butter. They contain no mineral oils or petroleum-based ingredients.

Even the packaging is eco-friendly. The lipstick case is made from a corn-based, compostable bio-plastic, and each lipstick comes in a seeded carton, which will grow wildflowers when you moisten it and plant it.

Cargo donates $2 from every lipstick sale to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Women need to be empowered more in general. They need to use their looks for good rather than use them for personal selfish persuits. When you get a moment check out:
