What's better than refreshing your makeup stash with new items from brands like Tarte, BECCA, beautyblender, and beyond? Oh, just refreshing your makeup stash with new items from prestige brands while benefitting a good cause. The QVC, HSN, and CEW Beauty With Benefits shopping event runs from now through April 25. The retailers have confirmed that 80% of the purchase price of all products included in the Beauty With Benefits promotion, excluding shipping, handling, and tax, will go towards Cancer and Careers, a program with the mission to empower and educate people, and to help cancer survivors thrive in the workplace.
There are over 60 premium brands participating, including Grande Cosmetics, Kate Somerville, Smashbox, Carol's Daughter, Elizabeth Arden, Josie Maran, Philosophy, IT Cosmetics, SkinFix, and more. The promotion runs across all categories — from cosmetics to skin care to hair products to fragrance.
But wait — there's more. In addition to helping others with your purchase and enjoying a new self-care product that makes you look and feel good, each Beauty With Benefits purchase comes with a gift bag that is stuffed with 13 items and is valued at over $200.
E! host Giuliana Rancic serves as the Beauty with Benefits Donor Participant and products from her Fountain of Truth clean skin care line are also featured in this shopping extravaganza.
"I'm honored to join this year's Beauty with Benefits as a platform to share my breast cancer journey," Rancic tells Bustle exclusively via email. "I feel strongly about the mission of this campaign, and hope that sharing a piece of my road to recovery will positively affect others."
