Breast Cancer Awareness Buys That Actually Give Back

Oct 2 2012 - 6:00am

Breast Cancer Awareness month means rose-colored cosmetics and pink ribbons everywhere, but some BCA buys are more giving than others. This year, we're highlighting our favorite pink products that donate at least 20 percent of proceeds to breast cancer charities in October. From perfume to blush, these are easy ways to think pink — and to give back.

Bobbi Brown Pink Peony Set

A pink flush is just the thing you need to mimic a rosy glow. For each of these Bobbi Brown Pink Peony set [2] ($45) sold, $10 will go to the Breast Cancer Research Fund [3].

Dermelect Nail Polish

Colder months usually call for darker lacquers, but rebuff the trend to show your support with this hot-pink hue from Dermelect [4] ($14). When you pick up this polish in Provocative, you'll also give 30 percent of your purchase to Cancer and Careers [5].

Iman Pink Luxury Lip Stain

This October, pick up Iman Pink Luxury lip stain [6] ($10), and 20 percent of the profit will benefit the Intercultural Cancer Council [7].

Diptyque Eau Rose Roll-On

Roses may be red, but this Diptyque scent is turning pink for October. Every Eau Rose roll-on [8] ($48) sold this month will contribute to The Pink Agenda [9] to aid breast cancer awareness and research.

Estée Lauder Evelyn Lauder Dream Compact

Showcase your support for breast cancer every time you head to the powder room with this ribboned compact [10] ($75). The case includes pressed powder and an inscription inside to honor the late Evelyn Lauder. In true charitable fashion, all the proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Fund [11].

Everyday Minerals Between You & Me Lipstick

Filled with essential oils like jojoba and lavender, Everyday Minerals Between You & Me lipstick [12] ($7) leaves just a touch of pink and a sweet fragrance. All October proceeds go to the American Breast Cancer Foundation [13].

Explore the flirtatious side of the metallic trend with these three pink glitter shades for October. Twenty percent of each sale from the Orly Pretty in Pink collection [14] ($10 each) will benefit Cancer Schmancer [15].

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist

Throughout October, every purchase of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist [18] ($98) will yield 20 percent to the Breast Cancer Research Fund [19].

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge

The bright pink hue of Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Disco [20] ($25) is so fun and so chic — and you'll find joy knowing that $5 goes to Cancer and Careers [21].

Tatcha Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream

OK, so Tatcha Supple Moisture Rich Silk Cream [22] ($150) donates just under 20 percent to BreastCancer.org [23]. But $25 of each jar goes to a good cause, and that adds up — which is why it's on this list.

KeratinPerfect Bedazzled Brush

KeratinPerfect's jewel-encrusted magenta paddle brush [24] ($44) gives 20 percent to Think Pink [25].


Launching Oct. 2, Coterie [26]'s first fragrance, Noteworthy, is a collaboration with Demeter Fragrance Library. Thirty percent of proceeds from the scent, a fruity floral with notes of patchouli and iris, will benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation [27].
