As a lover of all things pink, I always enjoy seeing the world decorated in my favorite color for the month of October—Breast Cancer Awareness month. The month of pink has arrived and this is it, my pink pals, your chance to shop for a cause has come.
So many beauty brands offer special promotions during the month of October and donate part of the proceeds from products to breast cancer awareness charities. I’ve compiled a short list of some brands/products you’ll want to check out this month. And remember, since part of your hard-earned money will be going to charity, you shouldn’t feel guilty indulging a little. After all, charity is always in fashion, ladies!
Sephora’s collection of pink ribbon products features brands that will donate a portion of the proceeds to organizations helping to raise awareness and find a cure for breast cancer. With brands like Clinique, philosophy and DKNY, you’ll want to check out these festive pink products. I know I’ve got my eye on this adorable Sephora Collection compact mirror.
Esteé Lauder’s Pink Ribbon Collection raises awareness while keeping you looking your best. The collection includes the Evelyn Lauder Lip Design Collection ($25), the Elizabeth Hurley Lip Design Collection ($25), and the Jeweled Pink Ribbon Pin ($12.50).
Sonia Kashuk for Target’s Pink Collection features a range of products in a rainbow of pinks. The line includes items such as Brighten Your Day Cosmetic Sponges ($5.99), Seeing Pink Purse Brush Set($12.99), and a Pretty In Pink Eye Pallete ($12.99). Target will donate 15% of the purchase price of each product to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
For the month of October, FragranceNet.com will take 15% of the proceeds from any femininely-pink fragrance you buy and donate it to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You can choose from Lacoste Touch of Pink,Alfred Sung Pure, Lulu Guinness Pink and Aquolina Pink Sugar.
