Target.com Daily Deals – Sonia Kashuk Breast Cancer Awareness Items

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on October 21, 2010


I almost missed this one.  Today, the Target.com Daily Deals feature a handful of Breast Cancer Awareness products including the Sonia Kashuk Pretty In Pink Eye Shadow Palette ($7.99), the Sonia Kashuk Seeing Pink 4-ct brush set ($8.99), and a pink Chi flat iron set ($89.99).  If you recall, I posted about the Sonia Kashuk Breast Cancer Collection for Target last month.  All of the Daily Deals at Target.com come with free shipping as well.

I was going to pass on the Sonia Kashuk Pretty In Pink Eye Shadow Palette before, but for $7.99 I’m all over it.

The prices on the Daily Deals are good only thru today or until the items sell out.

QVC FFANY Shoes On Sale Tonight!

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on October 15, 2010

Just a quick reminder that the QVC FFANY Shoes On Sale event is tonight at 7:00 p.m. eastern time.  I love this yearly event.  How can you feel guilty about buying multiple pairs of shoes when they are half price and the proceeds go to help fight Breast Cancer???

If you’ve never watched / participated in the QVC FFANY Shoes On Sale event before here’s a tip.  Things sell out quickly.  Seriously, some items are gone before they even get a full showing on the air.  So if you see something that you want, don’t even think about hesitating to pick it up as soon as you see it…especially if you wear a common size.  My best advice is to go to the FFANY Shoes On Sale event page on QVC.com as soon as the event starts to get a look at all of the shoes that are going to be offered.

In years past every type of shoe you could want has been offered:  gym shoes, boots, high heels, flats, sandals, etc.  So there is sure to be something that will catch your eye.  Donors include Michael Kors, Jessica Simpson, Liz Claiborne, Mootsie Tootsie, Kenneth Cole, Sketchers, BCBG, Nine West, and more.

I can’t wait to get some new shoes tonight!  Happy Shopping!

Bobbi Brown Pink Ribbon Shimmer Brick

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on September 28, 2010

The latest Breast Cancer Awareness Month cosmetic item that I have come across comes for the wonder Bobbi Brown.  This year Bobbi offers the Pink Ribbon Shimmer Brick.  Most beauty addicts should already be familiar with Bobbi’s Shimmer Bricks.  The Pink Ribbon Shimmer Brick features five shades that blend together to give your face a beautiful pink glow.  For those who have never used a Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick before, you are left with more of a radiant glow than a ton of color.  This is not a shimmery blush.  Each purchase of the $38 Pink Ribbon Shimmer Brick contribute’s to Bobbi Brown’s $35,000 donation to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Also, if you pick up the Pink Ribbon Shimmer Brick thru BobbiBrown.com you will receive free shipping on your order as well as a Pink Ribbon to show your support in the fight against Breast Cancer.  This offer is good now thru the end of October.

I cannot recommend Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks enough.  I have never been disappointed with a Shimmer Brick.  They leave your face with such a gorgeous natural glow.  Very often, I just throw on some Shimmer Brick when I’m just out running errands and don’t feel like getting all dolled up.  It’s also the perfect addition to your holiday party look.  You’ll look like an angel.

What are your feelings on Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks?  Love them?  Hate them?  Think they are overrated?  How about too pricey?  Leave a comment!

Smashbox Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss Benefitting The BCRF

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on September 20, 2010

Hey everyone.  Sorry, no Budget Beauty Monday post today.  I had planned on picking up something to test out this weekend, but then my Sweetie got sick this weekend and threw a wrench into all of the plans.  I swear, what is it with guys and acting like they are knocking on death’s door whenever they get a little cold?  Anyways, while I don’t have a new budget beauty post for you, I do have a new Breast Cancer Awareness Month product for you.

Smashbox is offering their Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss in Forever for $21 with all proceeds from today thru the month of October being donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Forever is not a new shade, however, it will be housed in a special edition BCA Pink Ribbon box for this promotion.  The Forever shade is a beautiful shimmering light pink.

At first I was like, “What the hell?  Why are just repacking an old shade?”  But after I thought about it I realized that it’s nice that the shade will always be available.  No need to worry that you’ll fall in love with the shade only to find that it was a limited edition, never to be seen again.

The Forever Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss Benefitting The BCRF is currently available at Smashbox.com. Smashbox is currently offering Free Shipping with any order.  Sephora also has Smashbox Limitless Long Wear glosses including Forever, but there is no mention about proceeds benefitting the BCRF, although that may change once October rolls around.

QVC FFANY Shoes On Sale October 15th

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on September 15, 2010

Just thought I’d give everyone a heads up.  The annual FFANY Shoes On Sale will take place on QVC on Friday, October 15th, 2010.  For those who aren’t familiar, the Fashion Footwear Association of New York  annually partners with QVC to present Shoes On Sale.   During Shoes On Sale, a number of designer shoes are sold at half price with net proceeds donated to Breast Cancer research.  You can find out more information here.  This is always a great event.  I’ve bought at least one pair of shoes during this event each year.  Oh, and starting in October, everyday QVC will broadcast a “Shoe Of The Day” every morning.  I’ll definitely post reminders as the date gets closer, but I figured I would post this initial heads up so everyone can start saving up!

Kohl’s Cares Simply Vera Wang Breast Cancer Awareness Collection

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on September 15, 2010

Hey everyone.  I’ve got another Breast Cancer Awareness collection for you today.  While it’s not exactly a collection of beauty products, it is a Vera Wang collection!  Kohl’s Cares has teamed up with Vera Wang and her Kohl’s Simply Vera line to create a bunch of pretty pink products to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  100% of all the net profits will be donated to support the fight against Breast Cancer.  The best part…every item is either $5 or $10!  Thank God for that because I am eyeing multiple pieces from this collection.  The Simply Vera Breast Cancer Awareness collection features sequin and ribbon coin purses ($10), t-shirt and boy short duos ($10), sequin scarves ($10), sequin gloves ($5), sequin knit caps ($5), a necklace ($5), long sleeved shirts ($5), a mug ($5), and umbrellas ($5).  Here’s my only gripe.  At the top of the page, it states that these products are sold exclusively online at Kohls.com and at Kohl’s stores in Wisconsin.  Why only Wisconsin???  How unfair is that.

Sonia Kashuk Breast Cancer Limited Edition Collection At Target

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on September 14, 2010

I have always loved October solely for the fact that so many cosmetics companies offer such great palettes, kits, and products with portions going to help the fight against Breast Cancer.  After my Mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I was even more excited about these collections.  It’s been a little over 10 years since my Mom was diagnosed and she remains cancer-free.  I was a huge supporter of the fight against Breast Cancer before my Mom was diagnosed and I still remain a huge supporter now that she has been cured.  So when I start seeing pink beauty products popping up around this time of year I start getting really excited.

While it’s still September, some stores and companies are getting a jump start on October by offering Breast Cancer Awareness merchandise.   Target has already released the latest Sonia Kashuk Breast Cancer Limited Edition Collection.  The collection features a trio of nail polishes (“Lend A Hand”), a duo of sponges (“Brighten Your Day”), a set of four brushes (“Seeing Pink”), an eyelash curler and tweezer set (“Primping For A Cause”), a 6-piece brush set (“Circle Around A Cause”), a 3 shadow eye palette (“Pretty In Pink”), and a kabuki brush (“Circle Of Hope”).  Obviously, every piece in the collection is sporting a shade of pink.  Prices range from $5.99 – $21.99.






I have to say, I’m kind of digging the brushes in this collection.  God knows that cosmetics brushes are the last thing I need, but I love how the handles of the Circle Of Hope kabuki brush and the Circle Around A Cause 6-piece brush set kind of resemble canned food cans.

The shades of eye shadow in the Pretty In Pink palette look beautiful, but based on the picture I have a feeling they are just a glittery mess.  Don’t get me wrong, I love glitter, but I don’t want major glitter fallout all over my face.

The Sonia Kashuk Breast Cancer Limited Edition Collection is a limited edition collection. It’s already available online and in Target stores.
