[productsample] Timed for International Women’s Day this Friday (March 8th) and in support of UN Women, a charity that promotes equality, Elizabeth Arden’s March On lipstick is a bold pop of pink for spring.
What’s special about Pink Punch is that 100% of proceeds goes to UN Women. Of late, I’ve become much more discerning when it comes to ‘charity’ products. Remember when it all got out of hand and brands starting using events like Breast Cancer Month as a marketing opportunity rather than an altruistic exercise? 100% of the proceeds is exactly what I expect these days, especially from bigger brands who can use their size and reach to make a meaningful donation or change. UN Women (HERE) is well worth checking out as a charity – they’re global and help women from all countries. With recent accusations of ‘virtue signalling’, you’ll be pleased to know that the charity is run by a wide variety of nationalities and covers economic empowerment, leadership, political participation, humanitarian action and sustainable development. It’s worth grabbing a coffee and spending some time looking at their work across the world to tackle gender inequality across the board. They’re amazing.
As you can see, Pink Punch is a lively, spring pink that will look equally lovely on warm, dark or light tones – I’m always swayed by packaging and the ‘red door’ design of Elizabeth Arden’s lipsticks are always so tempting! Anyway, it’s £24 HERE.
