Feel-Good Beauty: Evelyn Lauder Lip Design Collection

Universally flattering lipsticks that support a great cause

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the time is right to get smart about your breast health and also to stock up on girly pink items in support of the cause. To the latter, we love the trio of lipsticks from the Estée Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection. The three shades — raspberry, rose and nude — were hand-picked by Evelyn Lauder, who co-founded the now-popular pink ribbon as an international symbol for breast cancer awareness. While the lipstick shades are soft and sweet, the hot pink reptile-skin clutch is far from subtle. Stow your makeup in the look-at-me bag for the ultimate feel-good statement: Estée Lauder Canada will donate $100,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation through the sales of items in its Pink Ribbon Collection. Talk about a pretty way to support the cause.
