Beth Bender Beauty for Breast Cancer Awareness.

I am always truly amazed at the generosity of people when it comes to Breast Cancer Awareness month. The products and sets that are brought to life months in advance, and the business' that decide to give a portion of their entire month's sales amazes me sometimes even more.

bca_bbb.jpgOne such site that is donating 15% of all sales to the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women's Cancer Research Fund is Beth Bender Beauty. Not only will she donate 15% of the sales, every person who orders during the month of October will receive a "Paint the Town Pink" lip gloss. Really, there is no better time to order now.

Remember the Get in Line Kit I wrote about last month that helps any women, no matter how makeup savvy or not, create the perfect cat or smoky eye? Now would be the perfect time to try that.  $5.60 of your purchase will benefit the all  important breast cancer research, and you will get that pretty Paint the Town Pink too. Did I mention how beautiful her hand painted containers are? So pretty!!! I think I need to get on over to the site to see what else I need. Her mineral makeup powders and blushes look amazing.


Tarte BCA Lipstick in Sweet Dreams.

Tarte, in collaboration with Borba, have created a lipstick that’s actually good for you! Similar to their Inside Out glosses, Tarte’s new long-lasting lipstick beautifies you on the outside, while BORBA’s age-defying nutraceutical blend beautifies you on the inside. 

Right now, there are only three shades available, with the dusty-rose shade named "Sweet Dreams" being chosen as their BCA product this year.


Throughout this month of October, 20% of the retail sales from Tarte's BCA Lipstick will go to the Young Survival Coalition.

This Sweet Dream lipstick is $22 and available at


The Clinique Happy Special Edition Photo Bottle.

Clinique had a fabulous idea for the holidays this year. How about this... Put your own clinique_happy.jpgpersonalized photo on one of their Happy Perfume bottles. I love personalized gifts, and there is nothing quite more personal than a photo and a perfume.

This is only available online at and for a limited time only. So you will want to shop early for this present. 

The process is pretty simple to complete. All you do is log on through this link to, upload your picture, name the bottle, and order. Voila.

All this pretty perfume and bottle will cost you is the price of the product itself, $52.00.

This is such a unique idea. I really love it, and will be ordering one for my sister. She loves the Happy fragrance! I think I am going to upload a picture of her daughter, who is just 18 months old. I think it would be a special gift for her to give Mommy.

What better way to show how "Happy" your special someone makes you.
