As you probably (hopefully) know it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month during October. To help support this important cause Bare Escentuals have produced a limited edition lip gloss with all profits going to charity Look Good Feel Better. This UK based charity works to help women suffering from cancer improve their self-esteem and quality of life through individual and group beauty sessions. Through these sessions they help women regain confidence in their appearance while dealing with the side effects of cancer.
Not only is this lip gloss for a good cause, but it’s good for you too. Like all Bare Escentuals bareMineral lipglosses this is made from 100% natural ingredients. With sesame and sunflower oil plus Capuaca Butter for hydration, it’s also infused with natural vanilla giving it a delicious scent. The lovely pale pink colour is derived from pure mineral pigments.
This is a very nourishing, non-sticky lipgloss with good lasting power. I’d wear it day or night as the colour is quite nude. Wear on its own for a subtle look or over a stronger lip colour for the evening.
At £13 it’s a reasonable price to pay for a free-from-nasties, very wearable makeup essential, which will also help give something back to a great cause. Everyone wins!
Available online at Debenhams I couldn’t find it elsewhere online although it should be available in stores – stockists include House of Fraser, Debenhams and Selfridges.
