Amongst all the hype surrounding Halloween and Labour Day Weekend, October also signals an extremely important cause–Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Even if someone in your family hasn’t been affected by this awful disease, we’re sure that you know of someone who has, and the devastation that it can create.
October is the perfect month to support this cause and contribute whatever you can to breast cancer research, whether that be money, time or even just awareness. We guarantee there’s something everyone can do, even if you’re strapped for cash or aren’t in a position to volunteer.
One amazing, simple way to give back during Breast Cancer Awareness Month is to bring out your pink! We’re talkin’ pink makeup, clothes and more. This is an initiative that helps to create awareness around the topic, and many companies have joined in by jumping on board. Keep reading to find out our favourite pink beauty products perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
If you’ve never tried out the Invisibobble, prepare for your life to change. This traceless hair tie is made out of coiled rubber, uniquely designed and shaped to avoid creating unwanted kinks in the hair. It also prevents against tension headaches caused when hair is too tight, and won’t cause breakage, meaning hair stays healthy and in-tact. They’re also a super cute wrist accessory for when you’re wearing your hair loose!
Although the Invisibobble is available in a number of colours, we encourage you to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month with this special pink edition. The metallic baby pink ring is a stunning neutral colour, and hanging off it is a rose gold charm etched with the breast cancer awareness symbol.

Bring on the pink with your makeup looks this October, as a show of support for this worthy cause. Although pink makeup is timeless, it’s also the perfect excuse to treat yourself to some newbies and liven up that makeup bag a little!
One of our top pink picks is this creme blush from Gorgeous Cosmetics. Ideal for a natural, dewy look, it can be applied lightly to the apples of the cheeks for a flush of colour. A creme formula takes all of the cakiness out of your makeup, so is perfect for a super hydrated, healthy vibe. If you experience oiliness, simply set with a small amount of mattifying powder, then spritz some setting spray to maintain that dewiness.
Calling all the mummas out there! If you’re expecting, breastfeeding or postpartum, give your boobies a much-needed boost with the Pregnancy Boob Tube from Mama Mio.

I'm a journalism grad and avid makeup fan with an unhealthy addiction to buying nude lipsticks, no matter how similar they all may seem. I love chatting to anyone who will listen about my new favourite products, skincare dos and don'ts and practically any other beauty-related topic under the sun. That doesn't mean I'm frivolous with my recommendations, though--you can count on me to give you the nitty gritty on all your wishlist products. In my spare time, you'll find me binge-watching old episodes of Gilmore Girls or at brunch with a large iced coffee in my hand.
