Beauty For A Cause

As most people know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But for those that don't, I'm sure the increase in pink ribbons, pink shirts, and Weekend Walks may have, eventually, tipped you off.

Though there are so many ways to donate to many Breast Cancer Charities, it just got even easier for us product junkies. As it turns out, there are plenty of beauty products you can shop for that benefit related charities and here are a few of my personal faves:

Clinique Great Lips, Great Cause www.clinique.com

This limited edition trio key ring features a pink ribbon heart charm, Clinique "C" charm, and three mini lip favorites: Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Clearly Pink, Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Grapefruit and Different Lipstick in Glazed Berry. (Clinique will donate $4 per key ring purchased to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation during the month of October.) Retailing at $16 USD
