Earlier this afternoon I came across an Instagram post from Wet ‘n Wild that I definitely wanted to share. Last week the iconic beauty brand kicked off their #MoreKisses campaign to benefit the American Cancer Society. For every tube of their “Think Pink” Mega Last Lip Color shade that is purchased (MSRP $1.99), Wet ‘n Wild will donate $0.25 of every purchase to the American Cancer Society.
Finding a cure for cancer is something that’s near and dear to my heart. Cancer doesn’t care about race, gender, socio-economic status or even whether you’re a nice person. I have yet to meet a person who hasn’t known someone who suffered from cancer. Whether it’s a relative, co-worker, or friend, we all know someone who has either battled and survived or tragically lost their battle to cancer. Personally, my own sister had a breast cancer scare when she was only 16 years old and my husband lost his aunt and grandfather to cancer. And as an African American woman, I’m very aware of our statistically higher risk of breast cancer to our racial gender counterparts - the 2nd highest type of cancer for African American women after lung cancer. Cancer is scary, real and life changing for the patient and their family. And we need to all work together to find a cure.
So, when I came across this Instagram post, I was 100% about it! I literally went out this afternoon and bought a tube. Not gonna lie, it’s not really my shade of pink as I’m a bigger fan of darker pinks. But for $1.99, I’ll find a way to make it work by blending it with darker shades! ^_^
Anyway, please make sure you do your part to eliminate cancer! At only $1.99 per tube of lipstick, you could literally buy out the entire display of the Think Pink shade and not break the bank! ~_^
