I just had to share with you the most amazing launch on this International women’s day.
Firstly because it’s all fronted by women for women and secondly because it’s bloody brilliantly and you are going to want to get your hands on it before it sells out!!
Cult beauty brand Bobbi Brown have this year collaborated on their #prettypowerful charity product launch with none other then the gorgeous and super cool designer Lulu Guinness with all proceeds going to women’s charity Smart Works. And the result is lustworthy as well as super affordable!
I was lucky enough to have been invited to the launch event last night for the grand unveiling where we were served a choice of pink cocktails (the gin sour was my favourite with its signature Lulu “lips” motif) as well as miniature red & pink sweet treats at the Uber stylish Bourne & Hollingsworth Roof garden in Covent Garden, which boasts amazing city views (definitely one for you to check out!)
Firstly let me tell you about Smart Works, the charity that helps disadvantaged women get back into the workplace by helping them feel and become interview ready which they do through offering them training as well as helping them with clothing and beauty products to make sure they look and feel the part. Many of these women have been out of the workplace for long periods and so often their lack of self-confidence is a major factor preventing them from both getting as well as putting themselves forward for their chosen careers. With the help of Smart Works 60% of them get a job after their first interview which is phenomenal!
Bobbi Brown have been supporting the charity since 2013 and have donated through the sale of their #prettypowerful products over £250,000 to the charity, but this years collaboration with Lulu Guinness for me goes above and beyond!
London fashion week designer Lulu Guinness has designed a stunning and exclusive makeup bag for this years #prettypowerful collection which has a see through lip shaped cutout revealing the quirky lips printed inside design, with a red lips tag on the zipper. Inside the bag you’ll find a full sized Smokey eye mascara and Full sized Art in shade “Bare” as well as a pencil sharpener from Bobbi Brown.
The two products alone are worth £47.50 (not to mention the makeup bag) but it will be selling for just £35 with 100% of the retail price (minus VAT) going straight to Smartworks!
Now if that’s not guilt free, feel good shopping then I don’t know what is!
