Breast Cancer Awareness Gifts that Give Back
THRIVE CAUSEMETICS’ INFINITY EYELINER DUO
Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: I’ve never met a woman who isn’t particular about her eyeliner, but trust me, you’ll want to pick this set up. Thrive Causemetics is a brand that gives back 365 days a year. For every product purchased (in addition to eye liner, they make faux lashes, lash adhesive and brow liner), one is donated to a woman undergoing cancer treatment. And for the month of October, it is donating 100 percent of proceeds from the sale of this set of shades (each named after a breast cancer survivor) to two organizations: the Young Survival Coalition and Pampered and Pink.

EOS LIP BALM DUO
Lindy Segal, Style Social Editor: These little lip balm pods are already in every bag I own (if you haven't tried them yet, prepare to be obsessed with their moisturizing magic and their unique shape), but adding this berry-scented duo to my collection was a no-brainer. 100 percent of the net profits are going toward breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, so you can feel good about stocking up.

Alex Apatoff, Senior Style Editor: Though I'm not crazy about the pink product craze generally, I can absolutely get behind Diane Von Furstenberg's message of fearlessly embracing love and life – as well as the fact that 100 percent of the proceeds from this scarf are going to Bright Pink, which helps educate young women about early detection and prevention of breast and ovarian cancer.

MOLLY SHAHEEN CARD HOLDER
Adeline Duff, Style & Beauty Intern: Since I love carrying a slim card holder instead of an overstuffed wallet and I’m always looking to switch up my accessories, I'm psyched to swap this Molly Shaheen pink leather card holder into my rotation. 50 percent of proceeds go to the Ellie Fund, a Massachusetts-based organization which dedicates itself to fulfilling the numerous needs of women (and their families) struggling with breast cancer. At only $45, it’s a stylish steal—and for a good cause. Only downside? This item is limited edition—so be sure to buy yours by October 31!

Brittany Talarico, Style News Editor: The best part about this workout look is not the fun camo print or that it comes from Kate Hudson's line – it's that 100 percent of net proceeds from sales will go directly to Bright Pink.

JOSIE NATORI BRA
Catherine Kast, Style Editor: It's so hard for me to find a fun-colored bra in my size for under $100, so I loved seeing that Josie Natori's Pure Luxe Full Fit Bra ($70 and available in up to a 36G) comes in a BCA bright pink with 100% of sales going to BCRF!

JANE IREDALE HYDRATION SPRAY
Sarah Kinonen, Style & Beauty Editorial Assistant: This limited-edition, rose-scented concoction by Jane Iredale currently tops my long list of fave makeup-setting sprays. The 100 percent natural facial spritz, made of rose damascena flower oil, hydrates, soothes and tightens skin on the driest of days, while leaving a fresh, floral scent. Even better? All of the product's proceeds will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.

RALPH LAUREN FRAGRANCE
AMELIA ROSE DESIGN EARRINGS
Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: Trying to narrow down the reasons I'm loving these teardrop earrings is tough. They're the perfect size (big but not “too big”), have a great sparkle quotient thanks to the delicate outline of crystals and 50 percent of all sales will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. (Okay, so I'm definitely most excited about the third.) In fact, considering it's supporting such a great cause, I'm adding a few more to my shopping cart — it's a great gift option for girlfriends during the holidays!

DRYBAR DRY SHAMPOO
Andrea Lavinthal, Style & Beauty Director: My travel beauty MVP is getting a gorgeous makeover this month. But it's not about looking pretty (although,that hot pink hue is quite the head-turner). It's about doing good. Drybar is donating $1 from every sale of their pink mini Detox Dry Shampoo to City of Hope, a leading treatment and research center for cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
