Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here!

Can you believe it’s already October? You know what that means… Get ready to see pink ribbons everywhere. This is a cause that’s super-important to me, so I’ll be sharing lots of products that help YOU further the research that will hopefully eradicate breast cancer in our lifetimes, simply by shopping. And this first BCA month post features a few do-gooder goodies that you’ll want to get your mitts on.

Smashbox BCA Be Legendary Lip Gloss: Committed to breast cancer awareness, Smashbox serves up a limited-edition shade year after year, and the brand has outdone itself for 2014. Inspired by the BCA ribbon, “Promise” is the perfect slightly sparkly pink that looks great alone or layered over lipstick for a bit of extra shine. ($5 from each purchase is donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.)

Laqa & Co. Lil Lip Duo: Don’t you hate it when you’re on the go and you realize you left your lippie at home? That’s why I keep some sort of lip color in each of my bags, even when they’re stowed away in my closet. These adorable sets feature not one, but two miniature chubby lip pencils—and you can choose subtle or bold shades. The stay-put color lasts well beyond lunch, and hydrates your lips at the same time. (20% of all proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.)

Wink Eyelash and Eyebrow Enhancer: Offering a natural alternative to synthetic lash/brow growth serums, Wink is taking a different approach to BCA month. For every tube sold this month, one tube will be donated to a breast cancer survivor, as this serum is gentle enough to help chemotherapy patients regrow their lashes and brows.

So tell us… Are you going to shop for the cause? If so, what’s on your wish list?
