Beauty for Breast Cancer


“And are you doing your self exams?” As women, we hear this question at every annual lady appointment. It is a question we should be answering ‘yes’ to each and every time. I resolve to confidently answer yes and I hope you will too. We cannot afford to neglect early detection of breast cancer, knowing that 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in in her lifetime. This year, about 40,000 women will die from breast cancer, with only lung cancer accounting for more cancer deaths in women.

Breast cancer education and research is what we need. Not pink washing. One company that has taken more impressive strides than any other in this mission is Estee Lauder, who has raised more than $53 million. Evelyn Lauder actually founded the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in 1992 and created the now-universal pink ribbon.



The purchase of the following products will directly impact breast cancer education and research. If you’re looking for fresh lip color, fragrance and skincare, why not invest in the cause while you’re at it?

The full list of Pink Ribbon products can be found here.


I am wearing Clinique Pink with a Purpose Long Last Lipstick in Power With Pink, topped with Smashbox – Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Promise. Both are gorgeous colors, exceptional formulas and directly impact breast cancer research.


For every uplifting message or photo shared on Instagram or Twitter that includes #BCAstrength, The Estée Lauder Companies will donate $1 toward education and medical research, up to a maximum donation of $22,000, to BCRF. Please visit the BCA site for more information.

Please watch this video. I think it will truly touch your heart, as it has mine.

Thank you for reading and for your support of breast cancer research. Many of the items mentioned above will be featured in a future giveaway. If your life has been impacted by breast cancer, please share your story if you’d like in the comments. We are all sisters in this thing called life. <3
