Earth Day is coming up soon. To celebrate all that is glam
and green, we’ve rounded up our fave beauty products that are just as good for
you as they are for Mother Nature.
We heart palettes, we do. The problem? Running out of one
color before the rest and tossing the compact once they’re all done. The
solution? Pandora’s Makeup Box customizable and eco-chic palettes. No empty
shades, no throwing away. Brilliance and beauty in one cute package.
