It sometimes scares me how much I spend on beauty products, so it's always nice to find a way to give back while I'm purchasing products I want to try. That's why the QVC and CEW present Beauty with Benefits sale has me so excited to make some new products this week. In case you haven't heard of it, CEW, or Cosmetic Executive Women, is a nonprofit organization of cosmetics and beauty industry insiders. The organization's annual CEW Beauty Awards are majorly respected in the industry, as are its members.
This year, CEW and QVC are teaming up on a Beauty with Benefits sale, which will air on QVC Thursday at 6 p.m. ET (the products are also available to shop on the QVC website). During the sale, you'll be able to shop more than 35 beauty brands, and 80 percent of the proceeds of each sale will benefit Cancer and Careers, an organization that helps people manage balancing a cancer diagnosis and their career. The beauty brands donate the products to the sale, which is how QVC and CEW are able to donate so much directly to the cause. Sounds pretty cool, right? Since the partnership first started, it's raised more than $4.5 million to benefit Cancer and Careers, and brands have donated more than 222,000 products.
So what's in the sale? You'll find favorites from brands including Tarte, BareMinerals and GLAMGLOW. Here are the products I'm eyeing.
I love this tanning mousse from Vita Liberata because it's super easy to put on and stays put. This is the perfect time to stock up.
Want to stock up on a new brush set? It's the perfect opportunity to grab this five-piece set from BareMinerals.
I love this palette from Tarte, which includes nine eyeshadows and a blush.
Want to stock up on some new lip colors? This option from Buxom will become your new go-to.
If you feel like splurging, now's a great time to grab this microcurrent toning device, which I've seen popping up all over Instagram lately. It uses microcurrents to tone and lift your face, making it look like you just got a facial.
If you haven't jumped on the GLAMGLOW bandwagon yet, now's the perfect time to try out the brand's cult favorite ThirstyMud hydrating mask.
The products are all on sale on the QVC website now, or tune in Thursday to see the show. If you order early, you'll even get a gift bag of samples with your purchase.
