Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund

Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund

This September, Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund has launched a campaign to raise awareness on the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women. You can donate directly online, wear teal on September 7th (National Wear Teal Day), or shop for a cause. Laura Mercier is donating 100% of profits from the sale of the Bonne Mint Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Creme Colour Palette ($48.00) and Rose Hope Lip Glace ($24.00) to the fund.

Additionally, for every tweet with #LMOCF, Marie Claire will donate $1 to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. Happy tweeting!

I picked it up yesterday on an impulse (I’m hardly buying any makeup these days!) and I think it’s a pinkish red. Almost no sparkle and quite a bit of pigment. It’s just gorgeous! I would have bought it anyway but the 100% donation product is icing on the cake.

It’s a cause close to my heart as doesn’t run in my family but my best friend just passed away in February from it, she was only 25 🙁 It’s a terrible disease!

Terri Avatar

Oh Kaylak! I don’t know you but my heart aches for you and her family. As a mom the thought of losing one of my precious daughters is unthinkable. I hope in time the grief in your heart eases somewhat. She will never be truly gone as long as you remember her. I am so sorry.

I was just going to say that! It’s awesome that we’ve come as far as we have in breast cancer treatment, but ovarian needs some attention too. This is very cool – and I love that you can just tweet and Marie Claire will donate a dollar. That’s wonderful for anyone who wants to give but is really strapped for cash themselves.

Just remember it’s 100% of *profits*, not 100% of the purchase price (so they cover their costs of making and selling the product, then the money leftover is donated). It’s still awesome, for sure!

Catherine Avatar

Wow, 100% – that’s really incredible. Laura Mercier is one of my favorite brands and this just makes me respect and admire LM more. I love that they took the time to create products that are beautiful in their own right for the cause. I’ll definitely pick these up.

My aunt had ovarian cancer. She’s been cancer free for almost a year now, but it was a difficult journey. I love that 100% of the proceeds go to the fund. I might actually buy something.

Ooh. Both those products are things I’ve been thinking about picking up. I like this a lot. I just wish there were a cosmetics company selling to raise money for multiple myeloma awareness.

Renee Avatar

Fantastic!! Oviarian cancer is THE silent killer, of all the silent killing diseases us women can get. It is tricky to diagnose and usually too late.
I feel the need to buy both and will.

It’s a great campaign! Nobody talks about ovarian cancer, although it’s fairly common and hard to treat successfully. My grand-mother died of ovarian cancer, mostly because it was diagnosed too late. I think a lot of seniors stop visiting their ob-gyn regularly once they’re past menopause, at least that’s what happened with her. Every woman must have a gynecological examination at least once a year, regardless of age, it can litterally save us!

I agree! I lost my 90 year old beloved Gran to ovarian cancer this year as well. I miss her like mad. I will donate to this fund! Great idea LM!

Rachel Avatar

Oh that lip glace is calling my name! I like how brands are building awareness lesser known diseases and illness. I hope more brands will follow suit!

Its v nice to see more makeup brands do such campaigns. My Mom has cysts in her ovary and got it removed, though they were not cancerous, thankfully. They should do a diabetes campaign too, I’ve been having type 1 diabetes since i was 16 and I’ll be 24 next month. I’m on the Medtronic insulin pump, i was diagnosed with poly cystic ovarian syndrome last yr, and i may have to go through a laproscopy- ovarian drilling v soon if the meds don’t work out for me. Talk about issues!

And diabetes is really on the rise, in another 20 yrs time a lot of people would have diabetes type 1 Coz of bad eating habits and lazy lifestyles.

This is wonderful! I recently had surgery removing cysts from ovaries on last week. I am recovering wonderfully! I will definitely support this and have spread the word to my twitter followers.

Ovarian cancer can’t be detected via a Pap smear, and not even usually through a regular gynocological exam. It is not until a woman is in the advanced stages that there are any symptoms: bloating, a feeling of fullness when you haven’t even eaten much, abdominal discomfort. My sister was told she had bronchitis or pneumonia because she had fluid on her lungs and congestion — turns out the ovarian tumor was pushing up on her lungs, so those were her symptoms. She was already in stage 4. Five rounds of chemo gave her three more years of life but it was rough. She lost her hair, struggled with neuropathy, etc. we NEED to find a way to detect this horrible cancer earlier! Thank you Laura Mercier for donating funds to this research!
