Believe it or not, October is fast approaching. October is not just for Halloween, but also is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
China Glaze has a new collection called Fight Like A Woman that was created to bring awareness about breast cancer. They will give a portion of proceeds to the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
You may or not may know this, but I hear about breast cancer every single day when I’m at work. I work for a Biotechnology company that makes a widely used breast cancer drug, so it’s definitely not a topic I only think about one month a year. But I do think it’s great when companies try to help out in any way they can by raising awareness.
The formula on these was really totally fabulous, not a problem to report.
Encouragement is a light baby pink with silver shimmer. How can I put this…I LOVE THIS COLOR! Really. I saw the 3 pinks, and I knew they would be pink because that’s the color of breast cancer awareness, and I didn’t expect to totally love any of them. But I do. This reminds me of the dress the good witch Glinda wore in The Wizard Of Oz, all sparkly and pretty. 🙂 This was on the more sheer side, but I used three coats and I think it looks great.
Empowerment is a cotton candy pink creme. This is another one I really like and think flatters my skin tone a lot. It borders on being a Pepto pink, but not as dark and it’s not pastel or chalky at all. This was two coats.
Endurance is a raspberry pink with lots of pink shimmer. Hawt! For some reason I was expecting that this would be sheer, but I put three coats on and it’s perfectly opaque. A great summer color also I think!
This collection will be available at beauty supply stores and some salons in September.
