10 Pink Products That Benefit Breast Cancer Research
We’ve rounded up 10 fun pink products that help fund the fight against breast cancer
Evelyn Lauder + Elizabeth Hurley Dream Pink Collection
The late Evelyn Lauder, who passed away in 2011 from complications related to ovarian cancer, had a dream that breast cancer would be eradicated in our lifetime. She founded the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in 1993 with that mission, and each year the Evelyn Lauder Dream Collection gives back to the BCRF. This year’s Evelyn Lauder + Elizabeth Hurley Dream Pink Collection features three mini Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks and a stunning pink cross-body bag. For every purchase, Estée Lauder will donate 20 percent of the retail price to BCRF.

For over 12 years WonderBra has donated a portion of each bra sale (up to $50,000) towards supporting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s efforts to create a future without breast cancer.
