This month is breast cancer awareness month?and asides from the myriad?ways to get involved, some of our favourite beauty brands have come up with pink-themed, limited edition buys to help you support the cause (while supporting your beauty obsession). Scroll down for three?of our favourite beauty buys and donate your pennies for a great cause:

MAKE UP FOR EVER are encouraging the general public to pop into the store at 38 Clarendon Street, choose a lipstick shade and place their kiss mark on the ribbon-shaped wall while donating ??2. These donations will go directly to Breast Cancer Ireland to support the ongoing research efforts in the laboratories but also a national collaborative initiative involving the eight designated cancer centres throughout Ireland. The beauty brand will contribute 10% of sales from any of their lipsticks to Breast Cancer Ireland. Their new Rouge Artist lipstick (?24.00) below, is an ideal shade of pink.

Bobbi Brown’s limited Edition Art Stick Duo €44 are a perfect pair; whether you want to opt for a soft neutral or a brighter shade of fuchsia.?For every set purchased, Bobbi Brown will donate €10 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.


Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer Water is the brand’s iconic primer reformulated in a light, refreshing spray and they’ve had a packaging revamp for the month of October with a bright pink ribbon adoring the bottle. ?It hydrates the skin and preps it for makeup application while ensuring it stays put all day. It’s one of the best primers on the market at the moment and every €4 of €25 will be donated to charity.
All products are available while stocks last.?
