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.


Estee LauderEstée 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 at www.esteelauder.com.
