May 8th, 2014 is World Ovarian Cancer Day. With this disease being the leading cause of death among gynaecological cancers, I feel anything or anyone trying to raise awareness regarding important issues like this deserves a mention.
Laura Mercier Cosmetics have been a major force in bringing attention to ovarian cancer via the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. What I admire the most about this fund is that they use the success of the cosmetics line to help shine the spotlight on this disease. Laura Mercier Cosmetics has a 3 piece collection where 100% of the proceeds go to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. Buy makeup…win! all of the money goes to the fund…win! the fund helps diagnose, support, treat women…win! it’s a perfect cycle of women helping and supporting women.

Created with the same quality we’ve come to expect form the Laura Mercier cosmetics line, the 3 items featured for this collection are practical and universal. If you need new makeup, love Laura Mercier products, or simply you’d like to contribute towards the fund, any (or all) of these items would be a great addition to your makeup collection coupled with a worthy cause.
Kiss Of Hope Lip Glace ($25): 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.
Bonne Mine Palette ($48): Ultra-sheer, blendable palette inspired by Laura’s 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, this palette makes it easy to customize your look.
Healthy Glow Baked Powder & Brush ($36): Created to give skin an on-the-go, healthy, sun-kissed glow, this duet features an exclusive shimmering pink shade of Matte Radiance Baked Powder, plus a Mini Face Brush for flawless application. Petite, perfect, portable.
