Spotlight: Raquel Welch Wig Collection

raquel-welch.png

Today’s Pink Spotlight focuses on a great beauty organization in support of an awesome cause, the Raquel Welch Wig Collection by HairUWear.

Every year since 2003, former film and TV star turned beauty advocate Raquel Welch has worked with her company and HairUWear to donate wigs to the American Cancer Society.

With approximately $1 million dollars worth of Raquel Welch Wigs donated and distributed to cancer patients all across the United States via wig banks run by the American Cancer Society, those affected by cancer have the opportunity to feel beautiful again and less like patients.

Check out Raquel Welch’s line of wigs for yourself or someone you love online or find a distributor near you today.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is coming to an end this week but don’t forget that there’s still time for you to help me fundraise for Comments for a Cure.  For every Comment you make on this post, or any other BCA-related stories I feature during the month of October, I will personally donate $1 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure*.

Spotlight: Clinique Great Lips, Great Cause

clinique-great-lips-great-cause-set.jpg

Happy Friday, ladies (and gents)! EDIT: Just kidding!  Happy Thursday!  Being unemployed means I don’t know what day of the week it is!  :D

I’m so excited about today’s Pink Spotlight – Clinique’s Great Lips, Great Cause Lip Set is my personal favorite pink product for Breast Cancer Awareness Month that I’ve come across so far this year.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve owned a lipstick that came in one of those lip cases – I find it pretty old-school and reminds me of my mom back in the day when she carried one in her purse every where she went.

With that said, I think Clinique did a phenomenal job of giving us an updated look for its BCA-inspired set.  Great Lips, Great Cause Lip Set ($16.50 US) includes a chic, silvery lipstick case with a limited edition Colour Surge Butter Shine Lipstick in Ribbon Pink in a gorgeous metallic pink and bamboo-esque tube inside.

Spotlight: Glowology Love Light for a Cause

Today’s Pink Spotlight is not a color item or a skincare product to make you look gorgeous on the outside.  Rather, it’s something meant to provide you with a feeling of wellness on the inside.

When I’m able to create a soothing ambiance for myself, whether it’s in my bedroom, bathroom, or even my office (someday), I immediately feel more relaxed and calm, and that leads to a happier, and healthier me.

An easy way to create a quiet space for yourself is with dim-lit candles.  In an effort to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, may I suggest picking up a Glowology Love Light Candle ($24 US) in a glass apothecary jar.  When you purchase this powdery scented candle during the month of October, Glowology will donate 50% of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Fund.

Or, as our month-long contest for pink BCA products continues, you can win one of these pretty candles right here on The Daily Cookie!  All you have to do is fill out the sweepstakes form below for your chance to win this Love Light candle! Hurry because this giveaway closes on Tuesday, Oct. 21th at 11:55pm EST.

Don’t forget that I will also donate $0.10 for every sweepstakes entry I receive on this post, or any other BCA-related giveaways I feature during the month of October to Susan G.

Great in a Pinch: Bobbi Brown Dark Eye Palette & Pink Ribbon Lippies

bobbi-brown-velvet-plum-palette.jpg

Today my cousin and her hubby asked The Boyfriend and I to help babysit our god daughter, Katanah, and big sis Paetyn for a couple of hours.  As we’re happy to do so, a girl’s still gotta find time to put on her face, right?

Thank goodness for Bobbi Brown, a beauty brand that knows what women need to look great in a flash without the guesswork.  All her products are meant to enhance natural beauty without over-the-top colors to fear when you’re in a hurry.

The Velvet Plum Eye Palette ($45 US) has a range of four shadow colors: from a dark matte brown to a pretty bone highlighter.  It’s enough to create a simple day look in just minutes in between baby bottles and burping and fixing Big Sis something to grub on.
