Bright Pink Lipstick Day 2014

This Friday, September 26th is Bright Pink lipstick day. Join in and wear bright pink lipstick for the cause!

Bright pink lipstick dayBright Pink Lipstick is an annual event (now in it’s 3rd year) in partnership with Pink Hope that aims to not only raise awareness about Breast and Ovarian cancers (and funds), but also to encourage women to be proactive about their breast and ovarian health, by starting a conversation about their hereditary health.

I support a lot of causes, but charities to do with Breast cancer hold a personal meaning to me, as my late grandmother battled breast cancer. It is important to discuss any hereditary health issues with your family. You shouldn’t have to face it alone and you can take the first step in looking into your family’s hereditary health, so you can determine your own level of cancer risk.

This year’s official Bright Pink Lipstick is a collaboration with Pink Hope and Australian supermodel Jessica Hart. It is an exclusive lipstick for Bright Pink Lipstick Day through Jessica’s newly launched brand LUMA by Jess Hart cosmetics.

Bright Pink Lipstick dayThe LUMA by Jess Hart cosmetics lipstick can be purchased from Priceline stores (for $19.95) or online from the Pink Hope shop. If you aren’t able to purchase your official Bright Pink Lipstick or if you’re worried that it won’t arrive for Friday, you could just wear a favourite bright pink  lipstick that you already own. You can also donate to the cause online or by texting PROMISE to 0477 56 PINK (to make a $10 donation).

Don’t forget to ‘make your pout count’ and share your Bright Pink Lipstick pics on social media, using the official hashtags #BrightPinkLipstickDay #PinkHopeAus #LUMAbyJessHart and tagging @PinkHopeAus (the same for both twitter and instagram)

I will be sharing my bright pink lipstick pics on Instagram and Twitter, you can find me on Twitter- @Cottoncandydva and Instagram- @cottoncandydva_blog


FOTD Friday: Bright Pink Lipstick Day

As promised in yesterday’s post, here is my first ‘Face of the day Friday’ post.

Today is Bright Pink Lipstick day, so I have created a FOTD for the occasion

What is Bright Pink Lipstick day about?
Bright Pink Lipstick Day is a fun and fabulous way of raising awareness of breast and ovarian cancer as well as raising funds for Pink Hope.
By slicking on your brightest pink Revlon lipstick, you are promoting the importance that all women everywhere should be proactive about their breast and ovarian health by investigating their family history.


Revlon is the official partner of Bright Pink Lipstick day. They have released a limited edition ‘Pink Hope’ shade, but you can wear any bright pink lipstick to support the campaign (if you don’t own a Revlon one)

I finally got my hands on one (the pink hope shade) after looking for it at many different stores!

 Bright pink lipstick stands out as it is, so you want to keep your eye makeup subtle.

I used Maybelline Color Tattoo (from the Metal range) in ’70 Barely Branded’ as a base on my eyes.

Of course to finish the look off, I applied the Revlon super lustrous lipstick in ‘Pink Hope’ on my lips!
