bca_eyes_and_cheeks.jpgOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCA), and while we know support efforts, fundraisers and research are done throughout the entire year, we can’t help but love all of the fabulous pink products that are created and released each October. There are so many, in fact, we have to break it down into categories and only share our absolute faves. Check out these products to keep your eyes bright and your cheeks blushing.

Sonia Kashuk BCRF ‘Curl for a Cause’ Eyelash Curler

Who wouldn’t love a pink eyelash curler? We love this one not only for its fabulous color (not to mention the adorable floral case it comes with), but because we know that purchasing it 15% of the purchase price will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. $9.99,

BeautyBCA_RamyMelon.jpgRamy Beauty Melon Rouge Juicy Cheeks

Celebrity makeup artist and cancer-survivor Ramy Gafni is well known for his brow-shaping skills, but this year 20% of the sales of his ‘Melon Rouge’ Juicy Cheeks— a bright pink hue that gives skin just the right amount of “flush”— will go directly to CancerCare, a national nonprofit organization that provides free, professional support services for anyone affected by cancer. $24,

donna_karan_fall_2009_jourdan_dunn2.jpgWhile everything from metallics to bright neon colors were seen on the runways for Fall 2009, it was the rosy-gold, post-summer looks that peaked our interest, as it looks like a more natural way to transition into the season. Pink and peach tones create a romantic and soft look when used with bronzes and coppers, and is an easy way to give the face a radiant glow. Take a look at our picks for incorporating this look into your beauty routine.




Laura Mercier Mosaic Shimmer Bloc

Each of the four colors in this compact can be used individually or together to add a boost of color and radiance anywhere on the face (we love to use it to highlight cheeks and brow bones) thanks to light-reflecting particles that give the skin a healthy glow. $38,



Estee Lauder Eye Shadow Quad in Sensuous Gold

Make your eyes shine with gorgeous quartet of bronzes. As with all Estee Lauder eye shadows, these offer high color payoff and long-lasting results. Limited Edition. $35,




NARS Eye Shadow Duo in Silk Road

This icy pink and rose gold duo will light up any eye look. The gold flecks in the rose gold shadow adds a touch of sassy, fall-doesn’t-have-to-be-dull flavor. $32,





maybellinelinestylistliner.jpgMaybelline Line Stylist Eyeliner in Bronze Gleam  

To add a simple hint of bronze to your eyes that will also add subtle definition, this eyeliner is our favorite. It makes any novice feel like a pro with its precision of application. The long-lasting formula keeps eyes looking fresh and polished all day and easily washes away at the end of the day. $5.79,




Jane Iredale PurePress Blush in Whisper

A perfect blend of warm peachy-pink, this blush is made pure, nourishing minerals that reduces inflammation and conditions skin while providing a natural-looking wash of just-blushed color. Can also be used on eyes and lips. $26,




Wet ‘n’ Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss in Rose Gold

With just the right amount of stickiness (not super tacky, but not sliding off our lips instantly), we love this gloss for it’s pretty shimmer and glossy finish. We have to add the fact that the price tag is definitely very apealing, too. $1.99,




MAC Dazzleglass in Get Rich Quick

For creating the ultimate high-impact neutral pout, Dazzleglass in Get Rich Quick is our go-to lippie. With a silky texture and brilliant finish, this is one gloss that keep us coming back for more. $18,

dita-von-teese2.jpgWhen it comes to retro-glamour and classic makeup looks, Dita Von Teese has made her mark in the beauty and fashion world. With her distinct style, the celeb has many wondering how she does it. We are here to share a few of her beauty secrets (which really aren’t a secret since she did post these on her Twitter page).



When it comes to foundation, Dita isn’t a snob. She loves using L’Oréal True Match in N1 ($10.95,






To give her fair cheeks a flush of color, Dame and The Perfect Cheek both by MAC ($18.50, are the ones she wears most.






We all know Dita loves to rock a red pout, so what is her favorite shade? “…I like MAC Ruby Woo” ($14,




In addition to her lips, red is her go-to shade for her nails. Essie’s Fishnet Stockings ($8, and MAC Rougemarie ($12, are her top picks.



Keeping your youthful glow is easy thanks to CoverGirl’s new Simply Ageles Sculpting Blush. This soft, creamy formula contains Olay Regenerist Serum to help give skin a boost of anti-aging benefits (it’s clinically proven to provide significant improvement in just 4 weeks), and because it’s a cream, it looks more natural on the skin. Use it to give yourself the perfect, blushing glow. $10.99,

laura mercier creme cheek color pot.jpg



Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Color Pot is a new blush duo that combines a creamy cheek color with a soft-focus loose cheek powder. The effect is natural and understated, yet gives skin a luminous and glowing look. We are coveting this travel-friendly pot for the mere fact that it will save space in our makeup bags while offering quick touch-ups on-the-go. Available in two shades. Limited edition. $34,
