10 Oct

Estée Lauder Pink Perfection Color Collection

When it comes to breast cancer awareness, Estée Lauder is one of the leading beauty brands raising more than $65 million globally to support research, education, and medical services.

Every October, Estée Lauder introduces a few pink products with 100% of the retail price going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

I couldn’t resist this year’s Pink Perfection Color Collection, a chic zippered palette with everything you need to highlight lips, eyes, and cheeks.

The four piece mirrored pink ribbon set includes:

  • Four PC Envy Eyeshadows:
    • Ivory Power 1
    • Provocative Petal 3
    • Ivory Power 5
    • Untamed Teal 3
  • One PC Envy Blush in Pink Ingénue
  • One full-size PC Envy Lipstick in Powerful (I love the magnetic case!)

BCRF, founded by Evelyn H. Lauder, is dedicated to advancing the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. Visit BCAcampaign.com.

You then have between October 1 and October 7, 2012 to encourage everyone you know to vote for your page. The best part: every online vote triggers a $5 donation by the St. Laurent Centre to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
