Everything’s coming up rosy surrounding Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when you would be hard-pressed to find a retailer that isn’t letting their pink ribbon fly with pride. Shopping for beauty or fashion feels good again, prompted by the noble goal of wiping breast cancer off the map through charitable foundations that support finding a cure.  While it would be a challenge to list each and every brand that has gone pink for October, each and every one deserves special mention for putting their female consumer base in the forefront of public consciousness. Beauty in the Bag has highlighted a few shining examples, and we encourage you to seek out other products with the pink ribbon seal of approval. May this year bring us one step closer to finding the cure!
