It’s October! You know what that means…pink! October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
So many great brands donate portions of their proceeds from some of their most popular products to breast cancer research — and many of them are pink or have the sweet pink ribbon added to show their support.
Below are some great ideas to give to breast cancer research and to get something awesome for yourself!

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Dollface ($25 USD) — For the eighth consecutive year, Shiseido Cosmetics America will partner with Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) to support their philanthropic arm, Cancer and Careers. By donating $5 for every Lacquer Rouge in Dollface (PK430) sold in stores and online throughout the month of October, Shiseido will give back to the non-profit organization dedicated to supporting working people living with cancer.
Created by Artistic Director Dick Page, Shiseido’s bright pink Lacquer Rouge in Dollface (PK430) is a rich liquid lip color that delivers lacquer-like shine in just one coat. Inspired by Japanese lacquer artistry, this 9,000-year old technique delivers exceptional lustrous shine and an almost wet-looking finish to a wide variety of pieces, called “lacquerware.”
