The month of October is dedicated to raise awareness about breast cancer and all fashion and beauty brands donate part or all of the proceeds to certain items to help the cause. So here at Covet, we urge our readers and customers to buy from the brands recommended so that cure and prevention can be helped.
Whether you’re looking to finally try that cult skin care product or you’re on the hunt for a flattering new lip colour, there’s a product with your name on it. And if you fall into the procrastinator category, you’ll be pleased to hear that many brands plan on continuing to donate even after October wraps up in order to maximize donations.
