We have one word for you when it comes to changing your lipstick and lip gloss for pregnancy: lead. 

Lead can easily cross the placenta; it's been found in fetal brains as early as the first trimester. High levels of lead during pregnancy have been linked with miscarriage, low birth weight and impaired fetal brain development. In 2010, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reviewed 400 popular lipsticks such as Cover Girl, Revlon, Body Shop, L'Oreal, Maybelline, Clinique and Burt's Bees and found lead in all of them. 

Shop the Maternitique selection of lipstick, lip balm and lip gloss that are lead-free and safe for pregnancy. No petroleum products, FD&C dyes, drying alcohols or parabens. Just all-natural beautiful colors and lip care that's made in the USA.
