I know for some, right now is a penny-pinching time, with the US economy in turmoil and the financial markets off kilter. So I can completely empathize with wanting to give back, but not necessarily being able to without getting something back. And sometimes, giving and getting can be really fun. Throughout October, I will be listing many “pink” products from various beauty brands, so you can feel pretty and support the cause! And don’t think shopping pink stops with beauty–I was just at Safeway yesterday, and there were so many retailers with boxes decked out in pink ribbons!

  • Bobbi Brown Pink Ribbon Collection ($40.00) This is a limited edition set featuring Pink Quartz Glitter Lip Gloss and Tulle Lip Color. Bobbi Brown will donate $35,000 from the proceeds of the sales from this set to BCRF.
  • Laila Pink Eau de Parfum Sprayicon ($95.00) is partnered with Susan G. Komen – For the Cure organization.They will donate 10% of sales of this perfume with a commitment of $25,000.
  • Smashbox Pink Power Eye & Lip Kiticon ($46.00) This is a set of two matching pink palettes–a lip and an eye palette. Smashbox will donate a portion of the proceeds to Young Survival Coalition.
  • Estee Lauder Evelyn Lauder Lip Trioicon ($22.00) is a trio of pink lipsticks: Bali Rose and Candy Pure Color Lipstick and Berry Signature Lipstick all packed into a pink travel case. Estee Lauder is donating $500,000 to BCRF.

    Hi Christine! Thanks for posting all these pink products; the Estee Lauder Lipsticks look nice. My great-aunt passed away early this year because of a breast cancer relapse that spread in her body, so I really want to support this cause. I’m sporting the pale pink lips today!

    I saw the same thing at Safeway-pink coffee!!! (bought it). Anyway, Ulta has a pink stuff deal going on now too, they have a super cute pink hair dryer that I might just need.
