lipstick for a cause

Wednesday, January 4

 *this is not a sponsored post. I just think these guys are awesome.
As you probably know by now ... I have a thing for lipstick. Any kind. The drug store stuff and the fancy-shmancy stuff. So when I heard about a lipstick that's backed by a cause other than looking beau-tee-ful, I wanted to tell ya about it! Radiant Cosmetics is built around a vision to end human trafficking through raising awareness as well as funds, with a percentage of profits going directly to an incredible anti-trafficking organization.
Pretty cool. So all you lipstick lovers and you in-the-closet lipstick lovers too. Here's an excuse to get yourself a bright new bold shade. {so far, this moisturizing lipstick is awesome}

awesome and great cause!

when I think about lipstick I always think about the women that lived in these poor villages in Guatemala..they kept asking us if we had any lipstick we wanted to give them. They didn't look like the lipstick wearing kind but it is just a testament that lipsticks make women feel good. One of my favorite lipstick was purchased at the dollar store....shhh..and it is sitting right next to my pretty christian dior lipstick.

Awesome sauce! :)PS - I bought some red lipstick with you in mind, thinking, "Sydney from The Daybook looks really awesome with the "red lips that pop" ... I'm still getting used to it on me. My husband is like, "Wow. Your lips are red."

Natalie said...

"Not for Sale" is a really good book on human trafficking if you would like to add it to your book list for the year!!

Fantastic cause. Was just reading an article on human trafficking. Very good way to spend money on beauty indeed.

Thank You for doing a post about this… I found out about human trafficking when I was about ten and I was literally sick. I think they do a really good job of letting people know that this is not just an overseas problem it happens in America, Canada and as much as I hate it the UK too (but even if it didn’t should we not work just as hard to bring it to an end).

What color are you wearing in your picture? It's perfect.

Caity Dancer said...

What a beautiful color on you! Love it. :)

Wishing you a lovely day,

Katelyn Rattray said...

That's so awesome! It seems like a great product and such a great cause to go along with it. I just may have to give their products a test drive in the near future!

MJ said...

Thank you for posting this! I love finding out about retail organizations that help end human trafficking!!!!!!!!

Have you heard of http://shoerevolt.com/ ??
You donate gently used shoes to them instead of tossing them out! Then people buy them and the money goes to ending human trafficking.

jenny said...

I've never worn lipstick in my life. And secretly afraid to try it. Plus my skin is so fair and red toned, I would have no idea what to do. But you look beau-tee-ful in it my dear. (:

Charlotte said...

That colour is really pretty on you, I'm more of a balm than lipstick girl, but if its for a good cause...

Christiana Thanos said...

This is great! Lex Cosmetics also does this with nailpolish and proceeds go to various charities. We created a color called Lucky Girls for a girls orphanage I fundraise for in India!

I'm happy to see that bloggers are writing about causes to help out!

Love this! This is an amazing cause, there are 27 million slaves in the world today. That is more slaves than ever before. Among this is human trafficking. I was just apart of a conference called Passion. Together we raised over 3 million dollars to help end slavery world wide (as well in the US) So I think This is an amazing company and I will be ordering some of this beautiful lipstick soon! Thanks for the Post!
