If you’ve been peeping Kim’s Instagram you’ll know that her Cherry Blossom Collection is set to launch on September 14th and it’s looking very colorful compared to what we usually expect from the Queen of Nudes!
Her collection was inspired by her love for Cherry Blossom’s which was also the theme for her son’s , Chicago’s, baby shower. The makeup mogul teased us with a shockingly very provocative photo on her Instagram with her in Cherry Blossoms leaving very little to the imagination.
A couple month’s back, the reality TV star also gave us a hint that there were gonna be some brighter hues for her next collection when a fan asked her about other colors than nudes on Twitter. Read more about that here.
This collection features hues of pinks, corals and berries that I’m living for. KKW Beauty is just giving us the works this Fall. Kim’s collection also includes a first ever blush set which I’m sure everyone is excited for.
So let’s get into what this Cherry Blossom Collection includes:
I have tried KKW Beauty’s entire nude creme lipsticks and still love them to this day. When I don’t feel like wearing a créme lipstick I find myself reaching for her sister, Kylie Jenner, Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks from her 21 Collection. The formula is very lightweight and long lasting.
The Kardashian’s are definitely making a name for themselves in the beauty industry and whether you prefer KKW Beauty or Kylie Cosmetics or neither, we can certainly enjoy Cherry Blossom Season in the Fall.
Even though I love makeup, it’s always a good feeling when I can look good and support a worthy cause at the same time.
The Lipstick Lobby is a company that works in partnership with different non-profit organizations to support different causes. Some of these organizations include Planned Parenthood, The American Civil Liberties Union, The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the most recent, the Unprison Project, backed by social activist and feminist icon Gloria Steinem to assist incarcerated women.
Gloria Steinem, not much of a lipstick wearer but a huge social justice supporter partnered with the Lipstick Lobby to create a lip balm where the proceeds will help women who are incarcerated. You can purchase the In the Clear Lip Balm here.
All the proceeds from lipstick sales are donated for the betterment of women across the nation and their message couldn’t be more inspirational.
“…we aim to raise awareness for social justice issues, and also to provoke conversation. Wearing a coat of lipstick on its own can be simple and stunning. But sometimes we want to say more, say it clearly, and unapologetically. “
As a woman, not only do I feel obligated to support other women but it’s important to make it known that looking and feeling beautiful goes beyond what lipstick shade you’re trying to decide to wear but about creating a forward movement of strong, independent women. We can wear lipstick and kick ass by empowering other women while we’re at it.
Like I’ve always mentioned, we don’t always get to control what happens to us but what we can control is where we choose to spend our money and for me it feels amazing when I know it’s going towards promoting social change in a positive light like what Blush and Whimsy and Color the World Lipstick are doing.
