Hot For Pink: Makeup That Gives Back

Scroll down to content

Buying makeup can make you feel really good — especially when it supports a cause that’s close to your heart. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so check out some of our favorite beauty finds that donate a portion of the proceeds to fighting the good fight. So shop away.


Sephora Collection Breast Cancer Awareness Makeup Palette, $25

A $165 value, this limited edition palette has everything you ever need in a makeup palette — 36 shadows, 12 lipsticks, and 6 blushes — I mean, look at it, it’s major, right? Sephora is donating $2 from the sale of each palette to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

Bobbi Brown Pink Peony Set Illuminating Bronzing Powder & Mini Face Blender Brush, $45

This sheer illuminating powder has micro pearls to give skin a natural-looking glow. The mini face blender brush is perfect for use on your cheekbones. Bobbi Brown is donating $10 from the sale of each power set to BCRF.

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Plumped Up Pink, $16

Clinique made it’s number one selling lip product — and my personal favorite every day tinted balm — in an exclusive pink shade just for breast cancer awareness. And the pink carrying case is ideal for storing all your other favorite glosses, balms and sticks. $3 from the sale of each of these limited-edition goodies goes to benefit BCRF.

Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Shape Of My Heart, $16

This sheer pink polish is a sweet sheer blush for your nails, so if you’re looking for an every day shade, this is it. Not only is it pretty, it’s also healthy for your nails: green tea extracts and protein-building Biotin along with other natural extracts strengthen nails and prevent ridges. Ten percent of each sale is donated to Hoag Breast Care Center in Southern California.

Sonia Kashuk Proudly Pink Five-Piece Purse Brush Set, $16

These pink-bristeled professional quality makeup brushes are the only brushes you’ll ever need. And with a Powder/Blusher Brush, Crease Brush, Synthetic Foundation/Concealer Brush, Small Eyeshadow Brush and Bent Eyeliner Brush, you’ll have everything you need for on-the-go touch-ups. Sonia Kashuk donates 15 percent of the purchase price to benefit BCRF.
