Tarte with Heart.

Now this is what I call heart!

bca_tarte.jpgTarte Cosmetics is donating 20% of the proceeds from the sale of their "Pretty in Pink" items. And what do I mean by items? I mean they are donating 20% of the proceeds from the sale of not one, not two - but 5 different products! How nice are they?

They are contributing the proceeds to the Young Survival Coalition, a support network for women under 40 living with breast cancer.

And during the month too, they will feature a guest columnist, Maurey Lancaster, discuss her experience as a breast cancer survivor. She’ll blog about her diagnosis and chemotherapy experience, offer helpful beauty tips for those undergoing treatments, and most importantly she’ll give women of all ages a sense of hope. Be sure to stop by and read her words of wisdom and inspiration.



Celebrate Courage.

Celebrate Courage with Pink Sheer String, from Dianne Brill.

Dianne Brill, a unique makeup collection dedicated to making women look radiant, sexy and alluring, joins The Libby Ross Foundation in the fight against Breast Cancer. 

bca_brill.jpgThis year, Dianne Brill launches Pink Sheer String Lipgloss, a new edition to the ruffled bon-bon Dianne Brill collection.

Donating 20 % of proceeds (for the month of October) to The Libby Ross Foundation, this nurturing and glamorous gloss is a “good-for-you,” virtual lip treatment. Loaded with more than 20% vitamins, anti-oxidants, humectants and a pouty plumper, Pink Sheer String Lipgloss is a stunning nude gloss packed with sparkling shimmer.

Ms. Brill shared with us that she believes that women need to take the time to regularly examine their breasts – as just a few minutes once a month could save your life. She is so right. I do my BSE every day in the shower!

Dianne Brill Lip Gloss retails for $21.00 and is available at Studio @ Fred Segal, A Beautiful Life and Beauty Habit.

Time for Awareness.

Elemis - famous for it's wonderful spas, has launched a new 2 step kit for BCA - Time for Awareness.

bca_elemis.jpgThe collection contains the exclusive ‘boob tube’: a fabulous, fuchsia tube of Pro-Collagen Lifting Treatment Neck & Bust and their popular Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.

What makes this kit so unique is that it actually promotes the practice of self breast examinations further creating awareness and protection through early detection from this dangerous form of cancer. The Pro-Collagen Lifting Treatment Neck & Bust forces users to give themselves a self breast exam since the application must be completed in a figure 8 motion. How great is that?

Time for Awareness ($89) is available at select Nordstrom Stores and wherever their spa products are sold.
