Every year, dozens upon dozens of beauty companies band together in the fight against breast cancer. They each donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of products that month toward fighting the terrible disease. Some are existing products; others, products created specifically for this purpose. In any case, every little bit helps and we’re proud to do our part in the fight. Below, the five products we urge you to buy this month.
Clinique Pink With A Purpose
An exclusive shade of Clinique’s best-selling Chubby Stick, the pretty-as-a-picture Plumped Up Pink, comes with its very own miniature makeup bag.
$16 at clinique.com. $3 from each one sold will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
La Mer The Hand Treatment
One of our favorite hand creams of all time, thanks to the fact that it makes skin feel like silk. And this month, it’s even more prudent to purchase.
$75 at lamer.com. $10 from each one sold will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Orly Be Brave Nail Lacquer
Part of Orly’s Pretty in Pink collection, this nail polish comes complete with a BCA ribbon charm and is made up of pink holographic bar glitter suspended in a clear base. It’s best layered over a solid cream, but it’s definitely guaranteed to make people stop and stare.
$10 at orlybeauty.com. 20 percent of proceeds will be donated to Cancer Schmancer.
Sonia Kashuk Proudly Pink Brush Set
Five makeup brushes (powder/blush, concealer, eyeshadow, crease and eyeliner), plus a pretty silver pink carrying case. What’s not to love?
$15.99 at target.com. 15 percent of proceeds will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Nails Inc. Pinkie Pink
A multitude of pink sparkles that applies almost completely opaque in just one coat–and looks like jewelry. Be forewarned: the polish does apply on the rough side, so it’s best to use topcoat for a less gritty texture.
$9.50 at sephora.com. $1 from each one sold will be donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign.
