Mary Kay Recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month {Review & Giveaway}

12:01 AM

So, not only is October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. These are two very powerful problems that our society is facing today and it's time to focus our attention on finding solutions to these problems. I have been focusing on Breast Cancer Awareness but today, I am going to draw your attention to a silent epidemic that is sweeping our towns, cities and country. Domestic Violence. I have never been a victim of this but know of some women who have been victims. Watching them suffer is one of the most helpless feelings that I have ever had. They feel trapped and most of them feel that they are the cause for the abuse that they suffer. Their abuser has brainwashed them into feeling that way and it needs to stop!!
Learn about Mary Kay’s industry alliances who serve as key advisors to Mary Kay research scientists.
For the past 4 years, Mary Kay has donated  millions of dollars from the worldwide sales of Beauty That Counts®. Their donations go to causes that change the lives of women and children everywhere who are affected by domestic violence...which I think is wonderful. Mary Kay has some of the best makeup products that I have ever used and they are a huge favorite for me.

Here is a bit more about today's promotion from Mary Kay...

Mary Kay Ash emphasized the importance of giving back. That’s why we are committed to changing the lives of women and children around the world. Like giving orphaned children a reason to smile, victims of domestic violence a chance to heal and cancer sufferers hope for tomorrow. You can help others through your purchase of limited-edition† Beauty That Counts® Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss. Loaded with benefits, this lightweight gloss delivers ultimate shine.
So, for today's review I was sent Mary Kay's two newest Beauty That Counts NouriShine Plus Lip Glosses. When you purchase these glosses, Mary Kay will donate $1 from your purchase to The Mary Kay Foundation in an effort to end domestic violence. The colors are called Inspiring (pearl) and Possibilities (pink).
Both of these NouriShine Lip Glosses are gorgeous. They both have a glittery shimmer to them and really add a lovely sparkle to your lips.
I really love Inspiring...the whitish colored gloss. This one is a translucent pearl shimmer shade and looks clear with shimmer and the shimmer looks pink. Really pretty!! I tried to get a picture of the shimmer but the light reflection made it almost impossible. Take my word for it though...it looks amazing!
The applicator is a small brush that you use to apply the gloss to your lips. You only need a small amount too as a little goes a long way.
On each of the caps, you will see the words "Thank You" in different languages, which is really neat. It's just Mary Kay's little way of showing their appreciation for your donation to this wonderful cause. Each Beauty That Counts NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss retails for $14 and you can purchase directly from their website, or find a beauty consultant near you.

So, in my opinion...Mary Kay's Beauty That Counts NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss is wonderful! I love how it feels so glossy and smooth on my lips. More importantly, I love how Mary Kay cares for those who have been victimized by Domestic Violence. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to donate to this wonderful cause by purchasing these lip glosses.
I was sent a gorgeous, Mary Kay branded clutch with several Mary Kay beauty products (including Possibilities NouriShine Lip Gloss!) inside to give away to one of you! Here are your entry options...
