In the current economy it’s so hard to find the extra pennies to donate to charity, so when I see some of my favourite brands offering to donate when you buy I always jump at the chance – I mean what’s better than being able to help while you buy things you would anyway need. (Another of my favourites is round up to the nearest pound schemes when you’re shopping love it and I always say yes! I round up for budgeting reasons anyway so suits me just fine.)
October is of course Breast Cancer Awareness month and in support Look Beauty have teamed up with Look Good… Feel Better and are donating 50p to them for each product of the ‘fab five’ that are sold during the month:
Rock Candy Lipstick (£7)
Rocky Candy Lip Liner (£4)
Mono Eyeshadow ‘Silk’ (£4)
Make Me Blush Blusher in ‘Pinch’ (£8)
Nail Pop in ‘Corsage’ (£5)
