With the exception of black and orange, during the month of October, everything turns pink. The beauty industry supports Breast Cancer Awareness month in a big way. Just like last year’s roundup
, this year presents another helping of great specialty items that all support the cause. Here are some of our favorites!
The original shattering nail polish has gone pink! OPI has introduced Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts Nail Lacquer
, $8.50. Proceeds support Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
A personal favorite for putting broken blood vessels to rest: Darphin Redness Relief Soothing Serum
, $85. For eachserum purchased, $15 will go toward the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Stila Positive and Pretty Palette
, $14. It’s a limited-edition palette with four eye shadows, cheek color and a highlighter.
Way to save a pretty penny! A total of 10% of proceeds will go to a variety of BCA charities, including the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
There’s nothing more comfy-cozy-yummy than Alternative Apparel. The clothing line has partnered with all Urban Outfitters stores and Susan G. Komen for the Cure
to introduce the Pink Ribbon Collection
which features the brand’s best-selling tees, tanks, dresses and hoodies all in pink. Urban Outfitters stores and the Alternative Apparel website will sell the line through the remainder of 2011. Urban Outifitters has already made a $60,000 donation to Komen and Alternative will donate 10% of the retail price from online sales to Komen.
A few months ago, we decked out our pouts with Violent Lips
temporary lip tattoos. Now you can mouth off wearing The Pink Ribbon Collection
. A set of three tattoos is $9.99 and $2 from every sale will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Coalition
Charles Albert Pink Jasper Ring
, $170. The jewelry designer will be donating 25% of sales of the ring to Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization
hair products rarely go on sale so here’s one deal to take advantage of. In support of breast cancer awareness, you can get a set of PureVolume Shampoo and PureVolume HairCondition for $39. Even better, Pureology will make a $20,000 donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Estee Lauder is always thinkin’ pink. The Limited Edition Evelyn Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection
, $24, is a chic lipstick/clutch combo. They will donate 20% of the suggested retail price to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
