According to the American Cancer Society, there are over 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer each year. Of that 22,000, 15,000 face death from this disease. But two beauty gurus are taking a stand against ovarian cancer and coming together to form a foundation that helps to fund research and education to diagnose, treat and support women through their journey with fighting the disease.
Makeup artist and brand owner Laura Mercier and Claudia Poccia have built the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund and introduced two beauty products that raise awareness.$100,000 has already been donated to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Rose Hope Lip Glacé
A high-shine, perfectly pigmented lip gloss with rich, long-lasting colour and brilliant shine that creates the appearance of fuller lips. Any skin tone is virtually enhanced by creating a subtle contrast in texture. $24.00.
This ultra-sheer, blendable palette was inspired by my work with celebrity clients, who wanted a universal compact that would “wake-up” their skin and give them an immediate healthy glow. From bronzer, to cheek colour, to glow, it’s easy to customize your look. I love the finished effect – skin has a natural “no makeup” glow that looks soft and sun-kissed.
100% of the profits from the sale of both the Rose Hope Lip Glace and the will be donated to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. Get your hands on these beauty-meets-giving products at www.lauramercier.comand learn more about the foundation at www.lauramercierovariancancerfund.org.
