Usually I’m all for beauty for the sheer fun of it, but when this landed in my mailbox I knew I wanted to give it a moment in the limelight out of respect for all the women and men struggling at this very moment.
Caryl Baker Visage, one of my favourite Canadian beauty brands, has teamed up with Rethink Breast Cancer for this October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The organization’s goal is to raise awareness in the under 40’s demographic1, and CBV will be making a $5,000 donation to them from sales of this limited-edition Kisses for the Cause collection2.
But why should you care? Well, did you know that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime3? Think about it; of every eight women you meet, one could be diagnosed with this disease at any time. That’s scary!
Breast cancer is a disease in which cancer cells form in the tissues of the breast and have the potential to spread. Thanks to advances in medicine we now have the ability to treat breast cancer with early detection, which is why awareness for this disease is so crucial.
So slap on some lipstick for a good cause and feel great about it! More info about the limited-edition, beautiful products below.
The three lipsticks in this collection are appropriately called Charisma, Pink Power, and Courage (pictured below – $18, Caryl Baker Visage*). Caryl Baker lipsticks come in sleek black packaging with a popup mirror and sparkling gem – the perfect gift for any lady in your life. You can now literally put on some Courage whenever you feel down – how about that?!
You’ll also love the new SatinKiss Lip Conditioner and Lip Polish ($23 and $24, Caryl Baker Visage*), a treatment duo that will leave your lips luscious, kissable, and perfectly primed for the lipsticks. Luckily, the three products are available in a customizable set – you’re welcome, World!
These beauts won’t last long – find them online and in CBV stores in Ontario and Alberta until October 25th, 2015.
