Think Pink – Shopping to Support BCA Pt. 2

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As I said the other day, I have found so many wonderful products in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month it will take more than one post to share them all. Today I’m focusing on those benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Check in with me Friday for more fabulous finds for the cause.

For dry skin that comes with cooler weather, Aveda Hand Relief moisturizes with soothing Licorice extract, Meadowfoam seed oil, Vitamin A and Vitamin E. Retailing for $21, Aveda will donate $4 from each tube up to $300,000. Available at Aveda Experience Centers and participating salons.

Professional makeup artist Sonia Kashuk brought her runway looks to the real world with a line at Target a decade ago. As a breast cancer survivor, Kashuk has created a limited edition line to be sold at Target with 15% of all sales going to the BCRF. For eyes, there’s the pink Curl for a Cause eyelash curler ($9.99) and cheeks, the Sweep of Pink powder brush ($12.99). The Brush up on Pink 4-piece brush set ($12.99) zips up into a pink floral case making it perfect for travel. The 7-piece Brushed to Perfection is great on the go or on your vanity in its slim floral clutch. The same signature floral print can be found on the Bag Lady cosmetic bag. All items can be found online or in Target stores nationwide.

Throughout October, Bumble and Bumble is donating a $1 for every can of its Classic Hairspray ($12/four ounces or $21/ten ounces) sold online, at their two New York City locations, and participating salons.

Master parfumer Jo Malone created her Red Roses Collection by blending

seven types of rose with violet, lemon and spearmint. Jo Malone will contribute $15,000 from the sale of Red Rose colognes ($55/$100) and bath oil ($60) throughout the month, online and at Bergdorf Goodman, select Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and Saks.

Origins designed a special edition of their classic Peace of Mind On-the-spot-relief ($10) for the World Pink campaign. The blend of basil, eucalyptus and peppermint promotes relaxation and relieves stress, and Origins will donate $35,000 from sales this month at Origins stores and department store counters.

Bobbi Brown created the Pink Ribbon Collection for BCA Month, a limited edition set of lippies including a new Creamy Lip Color and Glitter Lip Balm. $40 for the pair, Bobbi Brown will donate $35,000 from sales at Bobbi Brown counters nationwide.

There are so many organizations raising funds for the breast cancer research, education and advocacy this month. I’ll be back with more products and deserving organizations on Friday, and throughout the month. If there’s a product benefiting BCA you think I should know about, leave a comment. I’d love to know what I’m missing. xo alex.

Kim Stewart’s Beauty Tips!!!

By | bathing beauties | 5 Comments

My B.F.F., the fabulous Kimberly Stewart, loves her beauty products (like moi!)

Her make-up drawers are filled with an endless supply of Nars and MAC, Lorac and Tarte. Her bathroom is like a beauty whores dream oasis. Products everywhere. From face care to hair care, body and bath to perfumes, Kim is the real deal beauty enthusiast! She travels the world being primped and photographed, and here Kim shares some of her rocking beauty tips exclusively with beauty banter!!!

“I love
June Jacobs Radiant Glow Self Tanning Lotion.
My dad (Rod Stewart) turned me onto this product. It’s a self tanner for the face, but it REALLY works. I don’t have to wear any face make-up when I use it and my skin looks flawless.”

“I use Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara on my lashes because it really makes my blue eyes pop. It’s thick and dark and never goopy. During the day, I don’t like to wear make-up, but I always wear this mascara whenever I leave my house.”

“When I travel, and I travel a lot for work (modeling), I always bring Jo Malone’s Nectarine Blossom and Honey Candle to burn in the hotel room. Candles create a certain zen-like ambiance, and Jo Malone candles have an incredible scent. It makes me feel less homesick.”

“Another traveling tip that I picked up is using conditioner as shaving cream. It doesn’t matter what brand as long as it is thick enough so that you don’t get razor burn. It creates a smooth shave and leaves my legs hydrated. It’s also one less product that I have to pack.”

“A fresh face with a hint of shimmer is essential. I use Shiseido The Makeup Luminizing Brush Powder. It has color and shimmer in the brush. A little goes a long way. And a tip about bronzers: only use on your cheeks, a dab on your nose, forehead and chin. Bronzer is not meant to be used over the entirety of your face. It’s meant to pop in places that a natural tan would.”
