Team Pink Eye Project for Susan G. Komen Passionately Pink for the Cure AND A GIVEAWAY!

It's the end of October and almost the end of the month long celebration of all things boobs. Oh wait, that isn't what this month was about? By now, everyone and their moms, grandmas, great-aunt's sister's cousin's dogs know about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So I guess that means that the awareness part is working. But sometimes we need to do more than just be aware. Being aware of a disease never saved anyone. It's just the first step. To take that first step even further Project Pink Eye was developed to raise money to support breast cancer research through Susan G Komen for the Cure.

I am hosting a giveaway (sponsored by Cinnamon Cosmetics and Team Pink Eye, not Susan G Komen) to help raise money for research. Other blogs are hosting giveaways as well, so keep reading to see how you can enter them all.

Here is what you can win- a four piece eyeshadow collection from Cinnamon Cosmetics. According to the owner, Candace, "I'll be giving away "The Sirens Collection" which includes the colors Audrey, Bettie, Lana and Julie.  The colors are a collection of pinks and purples all inspired by Hollywood sirens. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of these eye shadows go to benefit the Susan G Komen Foundation through Team Pink Eye all year long."

Giveaway Information:
  • What you could win- A special awareness eyeshadow collection, called The Sirens, from Cinnamon Cosmetics, pictured above (pictures courtesy of Cinnamon Cosmetics).
