Sweet (Pink) Charity

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and more designers than ever are showing their support with special-edition products, the proceeds of which support nonprofit breast cancer organizations. Charity has never looked—or felt—so good. Herewith, our favorite BCA picks.

Protect your pucker from the crisp autumn air with Borba’s Neutraceutical Lip Tint Lovely.
