When you think about it from a guy’s point-of-view, I’m sure it’s just as hard for one to live with a female. Case in point: one morning at 820 the doorbell rang. I zoomed downstairs all bleary-eyed in my pajamas and took over a bag from the delivery man. Back upstairs, I opened it to find a brightly-colored box which holds a pink clutch, a pink lipstick, and a pink lip gloss. I oohed and aahed: “LOOK AT THIS, D! Isn’t this the cutest pink clutch you’ve ever seen? And a lipstick and a gloss! Look at it look at it!”
If Dr D’s eyes had not been closed, I’m sure he would have been rolling them way to the ceiling. His precious last moment in bed, and the girl has to ruin it with her silly pink stuff…
Oh wait, pink stuff is not silly, especially not in October because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
This year, Estee Lauder is putting out Evelyn Lauder and Elizabeth Hurley Dream Lip Collection to celebrate the company’s 20 years of support for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They added a touch of blue to the design to represent the 1% of men who are affected by breast cancer.
In the set, you’ll find a Candy Pure Color Lipstick and a pot of Pink Innocence Pure Color Gloss.
Candy is a fuchsia pink with a metallic sheen and shimmer on me. It has the typical vanilla scent. The color is rather opaque and formula moisturizing, though it could look frosty on me if I go overboard. If your skin tone is similar you might want to use a light hand!
Pink Innocence Pure Color Gloss normally comes in a regular gloss packaging, but in this set it is housed in a pot. The lid has the same pattern as the box. It is a pale pink with a coral tinge and a lot of fine shimmer (nothing you’ll feel on your lips). Again, this is a shade I have to be a bit careful with just so that it doesn’t look frosty on me. The formula is moisturizing, non-drying, and non-sticky!
Swatch (from bottom to top): Candy one swipe, Candy heavily, Pink Innocence one swipe, Pink Innocence heavily
I am a fan of the pink snake-print clutch. If you’re going out for the night, this will hold your cell phone, lip products for touch-ups, and everything else you have to carry with you!
This is how Pink Innocence looks on me:

In Belgium, this set retails for 26,89 euros and is available at Inno Rue Neuve. It’s a good price for what you get, and more importantly 20% of it goes to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation!
Would you like to help raise awareness for breast cancer?

Now these are my colours, very nice!
Go for it Peggy!
The colors aren’t really my thing but I’d buy it for the clutch alone :d !
Haha I see where you’re coming from!
I always love the EL products for the breastcancer awareness month! Loooove the pink clutch!
I am really a bit too obsessed with the clutch LOL
Looks so pretty!
I love the packaging and the fact that they included a little bit of blue there!
Yup! I think most people are oblivious to the fact that men could be affected by breast cancer too, so it’s a great touch!
I love both shades! AND I LOVE THE CLUTCH!
As always, thanks for sharing – I want!
You’re welcome, Shannon 🙂 Make sure you check it out because it’s for a good cause!
Yay pink! This is a win win purchase 🙂
Oh the colors are so pretty on you! I always like the Estée Lauder kits but have never gotten one! Maybe I’ll look into them this year!
Thanks Joyce! I am a big fan of the clutch, so do check the set out!
what a great package and a deal!
this pink looks so sweet and pretty on you. 😉
(are you sure coral is your best lip color? ;p)
Haha you know what Lena, I might have to rethink the whole thing now 🙂
I love both of these! So pretty on you!
Thanks Tracy! For some reason pink is not my favorite lipstick shade, but maybe I should reconsider 🙂
Hmm, the price is not that high for this kind of set :o.
The price is pretty good for a lipstick, a gloss, and a clutch!
That lipstick looks lovely, I think it’s a great cause I’m just not a big fan of the colour pink so I won’t be picking it up.
Haha I know what you mean. Well there are other products that donate part of the price to the same cause, so make sure you check those out!
