BB Couture For Her Collection Swatches & Review

BB Couture’s For Her collection includes six pink colors. Four are from previous collections and two are new ones named after people both BB Couture and Overall Beauty know who have fought the disease.

Below is what Kim from Overall Beauty has to say about the collection:

“We have all lost loved ones, friends, lovers, family to cancer. October is the month that many donate to a cancer cause by buying something pink. We are offering this special pink collection by BB  Couture for two reasons. Both BB Couture and Overall Beauty have lost a friend to cancer in the past year.

This collection will offer 4 BB Couture colors we already offer, along with 2 brand new pinks named after lost friends:

Introducing:
Lana (friend of Overall Beauty for 10 years just passed away last month)
Flor (friend of BB Couture)
Pink Champagne
Raspberry Cosmo
Naughty Rose
Tutti Fruitti

BB Couture and I will be donating  $10.00 as our part of the sales of this collection to the American Cancer Society because there is more than just breast cancer. My mother in law died from a type of colon cancer.”


Lana

Lana (new shade) is a medium kind of muted candy colored pink with a slight silver and gold shimmer. Very pretty color, and great formula. This covered in two coats.


Flor

Flor (new shade) is a deep pink with red undertones and lots of multi-colored shimmer, heavy on the gold. This is a gorgeous shade and not what you think of when you typically think about pink. Also a great formula and covered in two coats.

Availability: Overall Beauty site.

Pricing: $58.00 for the 6 piece collection and $10.00 will be donated to the American Cancer Society from every collection sold.

    I’m sorry to hear they lost 2 loved ones to cancer. But it is a testament to the great relationship they had that they paid a tribute to them like this.

    I’m not one for pink polish, but this is such a great cause!

    Such a great cause, it’s nice to see them bring positivity to a very sad situation. I like both shades, the gold shimmer in Flor makes it look so pretty.

    Wow! Beautiful polish for a great cause. When I buy stuff like this it makes me feel good because I’m helping someone out it’s not just another polish. :)

    It’s so nice to see such a personal tribute instead of a generic “awareness” thing. My mom is on chemotherapy #3 right now, so it’s really easy to feel kind of inundated with random “BC AWARENESS!” stuff, most of which comes across as a marketing ploy rather than as something personal and meaningful. I’ll be adding Lana to my BB Couture shopping list (which is already really, really long).

    This is a wonderful collection for a very important cause. I lost my Aunt & Mother to breast cancer. Every year when I get my mamogram scares the hell out of me. Thank you Kim for this beautiful collection.

    Always a great cause to support. This one’s close to home for me since I just lost an Aunt to breast cancer earlier this year and it’s the same kind that claimed my Grandma. I’ve lifted my “no spend” this month to support everything pink this October. I just hope people see beyond what might be seen as commercialism.
