With NYFW firmly behind me, I started out the week at Marchon Eyewear Showroom for yet another fun Accessories Council Tweet Up. This one focused on items that give back to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and also highlighted a number of gifts that are apart of this year's Shop Pink 2011. This was a fun way to get our hands on a number of products that were in accessories as well as in beauty categories. Some of these items are ongoing products that are available while others are limited editions. I wanted to share with you some of my faves within beauty and tomorrow, you will see some of my fave accessories that were included! It was a fun and impassioned evening as many brands told their personal stories as well as Myra Biblowit, President of BCRF chatted with us to kick off the night and popped in throughout to share additional information. You can follow conversations from that night by searching #ACPinkPicks. As someone who had been diagnosed at a young age to possible have breast cancer (thankfully, I took a second and third opinion to find that this was not the case), we have always on Kitten Lounge and all my projects, supported this effort in any way possible. Starting on October 1st and running throughout that month, we will have our Pink Shop to connect you to brands that are mobilizing on this important effort that should be supported year around. You can see who is added to this by searching #KLShopPink
You can find out more about those participating this year by visiting their site or following them on BCRF's Facebook Page or @BCRFWorldPink. You can't talk about BCRF, supporting brands and amazing products without starting off with Estee Lauder (@EsteeLauder) - especially since Evelyn Lauder is the Founder and Chairman of BCRF. Although there were a number of goodies from this brand, I was super excited about La Mer's Lip Balm which I enjoyed its mintiness last night! It's available on their site starting in Oct and at specialty stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's and Saks. Our Canadian Kittens can enjoy getting it exclusively at Holt Renfrew. Available at $45, $10 will be donated from each purchase.
Elizabeth Hurley Pink Ribbon Collection is $24 with 20% of the purchase price going to the cause. This was available starting on Aug 1st and will continue through to the end of the year at Estee Lauder counters, their website or until supplies last! I love that you receive Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Lavish Pink as well as this fab accessory bag which is super cute.
Finally, Bobbi Brown offers a limited edition set in her Bellini High Shimmier Lip Gloss and Pink Lip Color. This is the perfect shade of pink and will be available from Oct 1st through the end of the year at theur counters, website or until supplies last. Available for $44, they are donating $10 to the cause. There are a number of beauty products that are supporting this cause so make sure that you check out BCRF and tomorrow I'll share my fave accessories finds with you!
