The Muse Thinks Pink: Smashbox Pout Lipstick for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Giveaway

As you know this month I am all about thinking pink!   I’m trying quite hard to raise both awareness and money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation which is my charity of choice for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.   So far I’ve raised $21 and have plans of donating $200 of my own personal funds to the cause.  I was originally doing a Comment 4 the Cure post which would donate a dollar each time someone posted a comment but I fear everyone got somewhat wrapped up in the giveaway I was doing and forgot to put a comment in that post.   My donation of $200 still remains firm if you do or do not comment but I hope you will consider placing a comment in that post.

To those who have taken a minute out and donated a $1 or more thank you VERY much.  I greatly appreciate it and it’s going to a good cause.

All the giveaways I’m doing this month will run until October 31 and a winner will be randomly selected from those who entered and alerted via email.

Today I’m thinking pink with the limited edition Smashbox Pout Lipstick which is a beautiful way that Smashbox is giving back.   Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Pout will raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.   With each purchase of this lipstick a 40% portion of the proceeds will be donated to Komen Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Smashbox Pout Lipstick 1

Smashbox Pout Lipstick 3

The lipstick is a baby doll pink shade which is quite mod.   It has a custom sleeve which was inspired by the Fashion for the Cure benefit.  The color is highly sought after currently and quite surprisingly talked about on all the makeup forums I visit.

The Muse has teamed up with Smashbox to giveaway one Pout Lipstick to a lucky winner.  In order to enter you can do a few things.

    That color looks gorgeous! I think it’s a great thing you’re doing Muse by raising awareness and donating. I’ve been saving all my Yoplait yogurt lids to send in because I believe they’re donating 10 cents per lid to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure!

  • 10/17/09 2:27 sparklingpinkgorilla:

    such a pretty color! another great giveaway. this is such a good thing you and these brands are doing!

  • 10/17/09 6:54 Charlotte:

    A warm hello from a rainy Holland! I think it’s great that you’re donating $200 to the foundation and it’s also pretty impressive that smashbox is donating 40%! Usually it’s 10-15 but 40% is very very nice!

    Anyway I like your blog – when is your new layout coming? Are you going for an Autumn layout or shouldn’t I ask?
