Today I have a collection just released by China Glaze for Breast Cancer Awareness. 

This October, China Glaze honors the strength of all women affected by breast cancer with the new Celebrate Courage collection. This collection was inspired by the women who gracefully fight everyday and those that support them in their battle. The six-piece collection features three new matte crèmes and re-promotes of three classic bright pink shades.  

Carpe Diem:

A super light nude pink creme. This is two coats and one coat of top coat because it had a semi matte finish before top coat. 

Make an Entrance:

Hot fuchsia creme. This is two coats.

Sheer Bliss:

A sheer off white with pink/red flashes of shimmer. This is three coats.

Strawberry Fields:

A bright pink with tons of gold shimmer. This is two coats.

Overall I really like all of these, the pinks and white is always a classic combo and what better way to use them together than to celebrate life and courage.

I really love these, the glitter doesn't go everywhere as soon as you tap the small brush included before applying it on to your eyes. I was so happy to see the awesome color and glitters staying put all day. I tend to have oily lids and it lasted more than 10 hours. I used the brush included and it worked very well. Once it sets it is gonna stay in place, but it is great for a smoky eye as well, just work fast so you can blend it. You can find these on the Milani Cosmetics site now for $5.99.
