Pink Products- Breast Cancer Awareness

Every year, I dedicate many days in October to drive awareness about Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Research. Naturally, one of the easiest ways to do this on a beauty blog is to publish news about Pink Products offered to the consumer, as a way to make a charitable contribution while filling your vanity!

Bobbi Brown Art Stick Duo

Bobbi Brown Art Stick Duo, BCRF Pink Products

press-sampleMany items from The Estee Lauder Companies’ Pink Ribbon Products selection supporting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) are still for sale, even now that October is over!  Among them is the Bobbi Brown Art Stick Duo.  This set of two chunky Bobbi Brown Art Sticks retails for $50 (a $6 savings from buying each pencil individually) and will be available for purchase through March 2017.  Bobbi Brown will donate $10 from each duo sold, with NO MAXIMUM donation, so literally every set you buy puts $10 in the hands of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

These luxuriously creamy lip pencils apply smoothly, and deliver incredible pigment-rich color!  I am such a fan of a pencil format for lip color.  Application is easy!  Use the pointed end as a liner, then fill the lips using the flat side of the tip.  Perfection!  The finish is a modern matte and the overall look is classic.

To buy this set, you can CLICK HERE to shop BobbiBrown.com.  Keep scrolling for more photos and swatches!

You can shop the entire selection in one place if you CLICK HERE to visit the BCA Campaign Headquarters.

press-sampleThe first product from The Estee Lauder Companies’ Pink Ribbon Product lineup that I want to get you acquainted with is this adorable palette by Estee Lauder.  The Estee Lauder Pink Perfection Color Collection is my #1 choice if you want to purchase pink products to support the cause.  100% of the proceeds from sales of this palette will go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, so basically purchasing the item is like making a direct charitable contribution, with an adorable gift in return.  It may be the last day of October–and the end of breast cancer awareness month–but this palette will be available through June 2017!

Included in the palette are four shadows, a blush, and a lipstick.  Swatches shown above, from left to right starting at top.  Ivory Power 1, Provacative Petal 3, Ivory Power 5, Untamed Teal 3, and Pink Ingenue.  The shadow colors may be familiar to you, because they’ve been “borrowed” from Estee Lauder Sculpting EyeShadow 5-Color Palettes!  A full sized option is also available for the Sculpting Blush shade “Pink Ingenue” so if you fall in love you’re able to replenish.
