In October, we wear pink.
Breast cancer is one of the most diagnosed cancers among women in the United States. According to breastcancer.org, 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. We all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as it reaches its end don’t forget to think pink and do your part to help the cause by investing in a few beauty and fashion products geared towards funding breast cancer research.
A VERSATILE PALETTE
The “Beauty of Giving Back” blush palette has eight shades of cream and powder blushes along with bronzer. You can mix and match the shades to give your cheeks a rosy tint or use the ombre bronzer to contour your face. That’s right, ombre isn’t just for your hair anymore.
A portion of the sales go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
THE PERFECT SET
Evelyn Lauder was one of the founders of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and is credited for the creation of the pink ribbon, a symbol for breast cancer. To honor her grandmother who passed away from the disease, actress Elizabeth Hurley has teamed up with Estée Lauder’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, for a number of years to help bring awareness and fight the disease.
This set comes with a long lasting lipstick in pink and nail polish in lilac and berry hot. Plus, you can stash everything in the pink clutch it comes with. Perfect for when you’re headed to a party or going on a lunch date and you don’t want to carry too much.
