Manicure Monday: Charity Edition

One of my favorite brands, Kiehl’s, will debut a nail polish—their 1st ever!—benefiting amfAR in July.  A sleek minimalist black of course!  What else would you expect from this streamlined brand?  I have long been a fan of black polish, which is in my heavy regular rotation, so you can expect me to be 1st in line.  I am deeply involved in HIV/AIDS advocacy & services, so this is a win-win for me.  The formaldehyde-free polish will be in stores and online just in time for the company’s annual LifeRide motorcycle trip, a 20 person ride to raise HIV awareness and funds for amfAR. This year’s 2,000 mile ride will be the longest since its inception in 2010—it begins in Milwaukee and ends at the Kiehl’s original location at Third Avenue and 13th Street in Manhattan.

Drew Barrymore launched her new beauty line, Flower.  The drawback is they are only sold at Walmart (ew!).  You can shop online HERE.  Since Drew is the brand owner & ambassador, she uses her fame & press access to promote the line.  They do not pay for advertising; thus allowing the buyer high quality products at low prices.  No animal testing from this animal-lover, of course.  Browse tutorials featuring Drew HERE.

You can check out what Drew has to say about the line in this month’s Lucky Magazine.  Here are a few of the looks featuring the line.  My favorite is the middle look; I purchased the nail (Eye of Tiger Lily) & lip (Get to the Poinsettia) colors.  First (& hopefully last) time I’ve been in a Walmart in years!  Check out more of Drew’s faves HERE (via Lucky).
