Shop Pink, Part 2

October 1st marks the start of Breast Cancer Awareness month, and many brands participate by creating or marketing certain products as Pink products. Our motto at Temptalia is: if you Need Pink, why not Shop Pink while you’re at it?

Shop Pink when there’s something you need/want, but if you find yourself just wanting to support the cause, the best way to raise awareness and support the cause is by donating directly to the charity of your choice (whether it’s time, money, beauty products, clothes, etc.). Purchasing Pink products always helps, too, but consider donating directly if all you want to do is support the cause. (You can also join us in our fundraiser, too!)

We’re just going to tell you about Pink beauty products, but there are plenty of brands across the retail market, from cereal to socks to lipstick, that are also joining in and raising awareness and donations.

Temptalia Asks You

What’s your favorite pink product? Is it an eyeshadow? Lipstick?

Temptalia's Answer.

Sweetie lipstick by MAC is one of my favorite pinks — just very flattering and not too cool/warm or bright!

Project Revamp

The Project: Clarisonic

Bzzzz, bzzz, it’s a cleansing brush for your face that whirs and spins and comes with a hefty price tag. Gadget girls with an affinity for beauty rejoiced…

Your Task

How would you improve this product? What would you change? What would you want to keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?

The Only In A Woman’s World campaign has come to its conclusion, and we are so honored to have been invited to take part in it. It was a really great campaign all about celebrating the quirks and characteristics that make women… well, women! From the crazy diets we’ve done, the times we’ve squeezed into those jeans just one size too tight, jealousy–I’ve enjoyed the series of episodes they’ve put out. (You should all know by now that my favorite is Episode #11!)

I wanted to recap by rounding up all of our previous posts from the campaign…
