Breast Cancer Awareness Month has officially begun and it’s time for every one of us to do our part in joining the fight against this horrible disease. I’m very proud of all the beauty brands that have made the effort to help out this worthy cause by donating the proceeds of your purchases to Breast Cancer Research. Here are some of my favourite products devoted to raising funds for the cause this month.
One of my favourites this year is OPI’s Pink of Hearts Special Limited Edition Nail Lacquer ($10.95). This pearly pink polish has all the usual characteristics of an OPI polish: trendy, high quality and long-lasting. This polish also comes with an extra-wide brush so applying it evenly all over the nail is a cinch. Purchasing this bottle will help OPI donate $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer. You can find this awesome shade at salons that sell OPI. You can also visit their website for more retail info.
Estée Lauder is also a proud supporter of the cause this month with their Limited Edition Pink Ribbon Collection. One of my favourite sets from this collection (which also offers lip glosses and more) is the Evelyn Lauder Lip Set ($30). These three shades of lip colour were selected by Evelyn herself and I must say, great choices! The lipsticks are offered in these adorable high-shine cases that are designed to remind buyers they’ve supported a great cause every time they use it. The rich, shimmering lip colours are super hot, too. I’m a big fan of Rubellite (far left). It’s so gorgeous!
The last item isn’t exactly beauty-related but I just love it and had to share it with you. The Apollo Pink Tool Kit ($29.99), available at Canadian Tire, is a household must-have for every gal. Let’s face it: We ladies probably get more use out of tools than most of the men we know, anyway. Might as well opt for a tool kit that supports a great cause and has a feminine twist to it. The kit is 39 pieces and $1 from the sale of each one will be donated. You can also go for the 135-piece kit ($49.99) if you’re really handy. Two dollars from every one of those will be donated to Rethink Breast Cancer so you know your purchase is giving the world something much greater.
I have lots more goodies you can buy to support the cause this month so keep checking back for more details.
