Elizabeth Arden March On Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick
Yes, this is a pink lipstick. Hmmm. We’re not always sure about those. But there are several good reasons to love this particular Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick, in Pink Punch, a shade hand-picked by Reese Witherspoon. (Not the least of this is at that we’re total fangirls when it comes to the dynamic actress, producer and Elizabeth Arden ambassador.)
First off, it may be pink, which is often deemed quite hard to wear – but this is a pink to appeal to red lipstick lovers (and frankly makes a spring-like change from our usual deep cherry red). It’s perfectly poised between a warm and a cool tone, to suit any skintone.
Secondly and perhaps more importantly, when you treat yourself to the 2019 March On lipstick – emblazoned with Reese’s signature flourished on the packaging – 100% of the proceeds to go UN Women. Yes, 100%. Not a token percentage, but the whole lot.
As they explain, this organisation ‘supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality, and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services needed to ensure that the standards are effectively implemented and truly benefit women worldwide.’
Putting a smile not just on your lips, but that of some truly deserving women, with every flourish of this pink, pink, pink lipstick.
