A Little Lip Service For a Great Cause & a Give-Away

I was honoured to have been invited to the launch of Pep Talk - a lipstick collaboration between MYNC and Canadian Fashion Designer Hayley Elsaesser in support of Dress for Success Toronto. Dress For Success Toronto is part of the non-profit organization that provides interview suits, confidence boosts, and career development to deserving women in over 139 cities worldwide. 
To me lipstick has always held a transformative power. In the early days of recovering post accident and pre-new elbow, my right hand could not touch my face (it would be almost 2 years before I would receive my new elbow). Applying make-up on myself became ancient history - but lipstick, a friend pointed out I could apply with my left hand. And lipstick became my friend. I recall feeling a sense of accomplishment whenever I applied lipstick and the emotional lift I got when I saw my reflection in the mirror. Truly amazing how a little tube of colour for your lips can have so much power. And now it can help the lives of many women in need.

Canadian Fashion Designer Hayley Elsaesser and MYNC Beauty team up to bring you a limited edition lipstick in “Pep Talk” for Toronto Fashion Week, with 100% of proceeds benefiting Dress for Success Toronto. Lipstick available to purchase in store and online.

  1. Did someone say lipstick in a shade that is universally flattering? Count me in! And what a fun event! xo

  2. A wonderful cause to empower women and a new lipstick , what could be better :)

  3. Why would I love to receive Pep Talk? You mean aside from being a lipstick addict? Well, I guess there is no other reason than that! I love this cause. I'm working on putting together a foundation similar to Dress for Success but it will only deal with LBDs and women in crisis. Every woman deserves a beautiful LBD. Well along with makeup and perfume - the essence of a woman - feeling beautiful inside no matter what - will help her feel empowered to do what you inspire us to do, become that curator of our own lives! I hold you partially responsible for the changes in my life - you truly have inspired me to make some incredible changes. Thank you Miss C. (p.s. I haven't forgotten the box)

  4. great cause would love to be the winner!!!!

  5. Dearest Celia,
    What a great initiative of yours to do this! Great post and more classy photos with you in it.
    Good luck and sending you hugs,

  6. Celia what a great cause.
    I find lipstick and earrings, if nothing else make me feel alive even if I am a bit down, what a difference the little things make!
