October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it is also time to consider other charities that do great works to help stamp out diseases. Ovarian Cancer is another serious killer of women. You can help support Ovarian Cancer Research and get yourself a great deal in the bargain with two amazingly great items from L’Oreal Paris:
Sparkle, and help save lives, with the The L’Oréal Paris Hope Necklace $29.95, designed by 2008 Swarovski Award for Accessory Design recipient Philip Crangi (I met him during Fashion Week in the American Express Skybox —see photos). It features a double eternity ring design on a delicate sterling silver chain. Each ring is comprised of 21 channel set, 2mm brilliant cubic zirconias set in sterling silver. One ring is worn for remembrance and one ring is worn as a symbol of hope for the future. The Advice Sisters have reviewed previous collections and this one is better than ever. This necklace comes in an impressive, blue velvet presentation case that makes the necklace look even more precious. Crangi’s pieces are sold in upscale stores like Barneys, and they’re pricey. This necklace would be a bargain at it’s normal retail price of $99.00, but is being offered for only $29.95 (plus $5.95 s&h) to support ongoing research to defeat the horrible disease of ovarian cancer. Net profits ($5.00 per sale) will benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. http://www.lorealcolorofhope.com/. Believe me, this necklace is a “must-have” for the holidays, and it will look even better in person than it does in the photo!
Makeup fans will love this Limited Edition L’Oréal Paris Color of Hope Cosmetics Bag $25.00 that also supports The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF), L’Oréal’s 11-year charitable partner. $5.00 of the sale of this fantastic bag will be donated to the OCRF.
What’s in the silvery, zippered, soft-sided bag? No surprise that there are great, key products from the L’Oreal Color of Hope Makeup Collection. I loved the two, trendy quartets of eye shadow emblazoned with “hope” in teal script across the front. One is “Joyous Spirit” featuring mauve tones from light to dark, and the other, “Peaceful Spirit” features a light green and medium moss green, and a matte and sparkling silver. The rest of the collection features the universally flattering shade of mauve (with vibrant teal packaging accents – the color symbolizing ovarian cancer awareness): a mauve “Color of Hope” lipstick, Mauve Color-Riche wanded lip gloss, amd limited edition color of hope Infallible Lip Color. Be trendy and help a great cause!
If you are just seeking a great lipstick to help the cause and color yourself beautiful, L’Oréal Paris will donate $2.00 to the OCRF from the purchase of each Color of Hope Colour Riche Lipcolour $8.95, available in three shades: A Color of Hope, A Lighter Shade of Hope, and A Deeper Shade of Hope. , These great looking, silky lipsticks have hydrating Omega-3 and conditioning Vitamin E that really help lips look smooth and soft (really important as dry Winter heat starts to make lips look parched). The collection, including the Colour Riche Lipcolours, will be available during the month of September at mass-market retailers nationwide.
The Color of Hope Cosmetics Bag, is available while supplies last at L’Oréal Paris retail stores. Please call 888.270.7743 to order and visit lorealcolorofhope.com for more information.
