L’oreal Paris ~ Color of Hope Collection ~ Ovarian Cancer Research Fund

A sobering statistic:  More than 20,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year – and only about half will live to see the five-year mark.  To suport research, L’Oreal Paris is donating a dollar of every purchase from its Color of Hope Collection – a line of glosses, shadows, lipsticks and laquers – to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.  Check the products out at your local drugstore.
