Laura Mercier is introducing two new products this September, and she will be donating an impressive 100% of the profits to The Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. The Fund's mission is to raise awareness and fund research and educational efforts that will help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer.
I love the photo I've been seeing in print ads for this initiative, which is also the pictorial on the web site's home page.
Here is the information from the press release detailing the Fund and the products associated with it:
Beginning in September 2012, in recognition of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Laura Mercier will donate 100 percent of the profits from the sale of two products – Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette and Rose Hope Lip Glacé – to the Fund.
This cause is very near and dear to the hearts of Laura Mercier, and the company’s President and CEO, Claudia Poccia. Both women have been personally touched by the disease – Laura through a dear friend, and Claudia through her sister.

Bonne Mine Pallette
Bonne Mine Palette
"I am so excited to introduce the Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette. This ultra-sheer, blendable palette was inspired by my work with celebrity clients, who wanted a universal compact that would “wake-up” their skin and give them an immediate healthy glow. From bronzer, to cheek colour, to glow, it’s easy to customize your look. I love the finished effect – skin has a natural “no makeup” glow that looks soft and sun-kissed. I also love the portability and ease of this compact…and I know you will too!" -Laura Mercier
The Bonne Mine Palette includes:
1 Bronzer Veil
2 Cheek Veils
2 Glow Veils
Rose Hope Lip Glacé
A high-shine, perfectly pigmented lip gloss with rich, long-lasting colour and brilliant shine that creates the appearance of fuller lips. Any skin tone is virtually enhanced by creating a subtle contrast in texture.
