This month, we here at Beauty News NYC, have decided to focus on purchase with a purpose. It is a great feeling to know your favorite lip gloss supports Breast Cancer Research, or may help young adults battle eating disorders. Three outstanding examples of companies that care are Stila, PersoNatalie, and Ramy Beauty Therapy.

“Shut Up and Kiss Me!” No, that’s not a direct order, it’s the name of a delicious new lip gloss from Ramy Beauty Therapy. The rich bronze shade is a lip plumping, minty fresh treat, promising to increase Collagen within thirty days of consecutive use. Fifty percent of the proceeds of “shut up and kiss me” lip gloss go to Cancer Care, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide aid to people with all Cancers through financial assistance, counseling, referrals, and education. Thanks, Ramy!

Tie One On! A Ribbon, That Is…..Makes the World Go ‘Round
Is it money, or music? Perhaps a combination of the two, but not for the final feature of this month. Natalie Bonelli is both a professional singer-songwriter, and make up artist. With a passion for creativity, her music and lyrics have touched the hearts of many women, with the inspirational message to ” be the women we strive to be.” Along with her hit CD, Natalie released nine delectable lip glosses, each one named for a song on her CD. A percentage of proceeds go to Renfrew Center Foundation, which offers medical treatment, counseling, and healing to women of all ages suffering with eating disorders. Well done Natalie!

Just wanted to say thanks to all contributing companies. Your participation and efforts go a long way to helping many people. And to all consumers, here’s to feeling good about buying that twenty seventh lip gloss.
