I seem to be writing about charitable contributions a lot of late, which is by no means a bad thing. We’ve had MAC raising funds for aids research, Clinique helping to ‘kiss it better’ and now Bobbi Brown is launching their own annual campaign which will donate the price of Pretty Powerful products to a different cause every year. The first product to take on that honour is the best-selling, multi-tasking lip and cheek colour in a special edition Pretty Powerful Pink. Amazingly, 100% of the price will be donated to Dress for Success, the chosen charity for this year’s Pretty Powerful campaign in the UK. Dress for Success helps women on low incomes get back to work; with thousands of women in unemployment and lacking in confidence following the recession, it’s more important than ever to help them. When a woman visits the charity, trained stylists will dress her in a smart professional outfit to wear to her job interview, followed by personal interview training from a senior executive. This will not only have them looking great, but feeling great too! I love the idea of this, especially in a world where we give handouts and don’t ask questions – Dress for Success are actively helping women by enabling them to help themselves. Back to the product though… A universally flattering shade, Pretty Powerful Pink comes in a sleek flip-top compact that’s easy to use on the go. Its double-duty cream formula blends easily to give lips and cheeks a soft, stained finish that provides a subtle glow to the skin. The shade enhances the complexion by complementing the natural ‘flushed’ look of an English Rose. It’s non-greasy and leaves a sheen on skin so it can be worn alone or under a dusting of powder; it’s a perfect little product for Spring! Not only will you be ‘dressed for success’ when wearing this, but you’ll be helping others reach their potential too. Will you be picking one up?
