The Power of Pink
Power up pink ladies, it’s time to put your money
where your mouth is. Remember when everything around
town turned orange and black in October? Now we’re
seeing pink, but it’s just as sweet. Keeping with
our theme of “Pretty in Pink,” this month’s
gloss•a•ry comes tied with
a pink ribbon of support for breast cancer treatment,
research and awareness.
Lauder High Gloss in Pink Ribbon Pink, $16; and Pure
Color Crystal Gloss in Evelyn Pink, $18.
The Estée Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection is a
long-time supporter of the fight against breast cancer,
making a dramatic difference through it’s luminous
brand of beauty. This year, Estée Lauder will
donate $500,000 in connection with the sales of its
Pink Ribbon products to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation,
a prevention and research organization founded in 1993
by Evelyn Lauder. Pink Ribbon High Gloss feels especially
good on the pucker, lavishing the lips with silky conditioners
and shining with an irresistible shade of rosy happiness.
Evelyn Pink Crystal Gloss honors the icon herself. The
crystalline shade recreates Mrs. Lauder’s most-favorite
pink hue – sheer with a hint of shimmer and superior
luster. Available at Bloomingdale’s and online
