Each October brings us a new lineup of products draped in the traditional BCA pink, with brands offering some of their proceeds (or a flat donation) from the purchase price of the products to their chosen breast cancer awareness charity. I’ve picked out some of my fave beauty offerings this year—you can never have too much pink, and it’s for a great cause!
Check out the picks for 2010:
Clarisonic Hope Mia (limited edition) — This month Clarisonic is offering a percentage of the proceeds from the sales of their signature PINK line, in addition to an initial donation of $100,000 to Look Good…Feel Better. The national program teaches beauty techniques to cancer patients to combat some of the appearance-related side effects of their treatment. Clarisonic is committed to the cause and will also donate $1 for every “Like” they receive on their Facebook page to the tune of an additional $100,000! $149 (You’ll find my review for the Mia here.)
Estée Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection Elizabeth Hurley Lip Design Collection — Estée Lauder will donate $500,000 in connection with the sales from their Pink Ribbon Collection to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This set includes a pink accessory bag and four Pure Color Gloss shades (Nude Rose, Rock Candy, Brazen Berry and Extravagant Pink). $25
Tone Daily Detox Purifying Body Wash with White Clay & Pink Jasmine — The Dial Corporation has committed to a donation of $100,000 for Breast Cancer Network of Strength, a program offering emotional support and peer-to-peer programs for anyone affected by breast cancer. This special edition bottle also includes a how-to for an in-shower breast exam on the back. $3.99
Sephora Collection Makeup Palette To-Go BCA Edition — This limited edition pink mini palette includes eight eyeshadows, four lip glosses, and one blush to help you create versatile looks while supporting The Breast Cancer Reseach Foundation. $15
Purple Lab SWAC (Sealed With a Cure) Nancy Lip Gloss — 20% of the proceeds from this antioxidant packed, creamy blush pink lip gloss with real gold flakes goes directly to the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation. This special shade was created in tribute to the woman for whom the foundation was inspired by, Nancy Block-Zenna. Nancy battled this lesser-known subtype of breast cancer before her passing in 2007. $18.50
