Rural Glamour: L'Oreal Color of Hope Quad in Petals of Promise + Infallible l/g in Color of Hope

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Normally, I don't get caught up in the 'Pinkwashing' of October. And I will explain....

For YEARS, companies have been promoting pink everything in October for "breast cancer awareness and research". I'm very skeptical about where the money is really going. My favorite is when a company will say " A PORTION of the process will go to Popular-Named- Breast Cancer Association".

But at any rate...Breast Cancer...any Cancer is REAL TALK. Over the last five years, I've lost my father, great aunt and one of my best girlfriends to Cancer. I miss them deeply and battle is far from over. I have to put it in the Lord's hands that these companies are doing what is ethically right and giving the "a portion of the proceeds" over to Cancer research and awareness.

I picked up L'Oreal Color of Hope Quad in Petals of Promise and L'Oreal Infallible in Color of Hope to honor my Daddy, Aunt Maxine, and Gabrielle James. Gab AKA 'G-Money' would have loved this gloss, even though she was a die hard MAC!
My Dad would have been like "Peaches, you buy TOO much makeup". lol!
My Aunt Maxine would have said " Its pretty, you got a boyfriend or a job yet?" lol!

****I love you Daddy. I know you are watching me and the boys. I miss you insanely****Aunt Maxine, I hope that I made you proud. I will continue to honor your legacy as live in the house you built for our family.****And Gabby J, girlfriend, there aint day goes by were I just want to pick up the phone and call you, I'm still holding it down..."Smiles All Around"***
