March 10th marks National Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Week, and makeup maven Marissa Shipman has created yet another charitable beauty product for the occasion. Kiss MS Goodbye Lip Gloss is her best-selling shimmery, sheer peach Balm Shelter Lip Gloss called Girly Girl, but throughout the month of March it has new packaging and 20% of sales will go to the New York City chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The gloss contains SPF 17, it has a banana-strawberry scent (you guessed it, I'm a big fan) and it costs $18. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, we saw a wide variety of beauty brands create products whose proceeds helped fund cancer research and outreach programs. I only hope this trend will catch on and we start to see charitable creations within the industry more frequently.
