If you aren't able to catch the airing, rest assured that the stunning spectrum of beauty and skin care  is also currently available on (with direct links to some favorites below)!

More about the causes that benefit from your purchase...

Cosmetic Executive Women, Inc. (CEW) was founded in 1954 as a social organization. In 1975, CEW became a nonprofit professional organization with a mission to promote the contributions of women in the cosmetics industry. It expanded its mission in 1985 to include education, philanthropy, and industry development. Today, it has over 5,000 members, both women and men, in the beauty, cosmetics, fragrance, and related industries.
CEW's philanthropic arm, the CEW Foundation, was established in 1991 to help women better their lives. In 2001, the Foundation developed the Cancer and Careers program. This online and offline resource is dedicated to empowering and educating people with cancer to help them thrive in their workplace.
Work doesn't stop after being diagnosed with cancer. In fact, over 80% of cancer survivors return to work after treatment and, once diagnosed, work becomes even more important. That's where Cancer and Careers comes in.
Cancer and Careers is a program dedicated to empowering and educating people with cancer to help them thrive in their workplace. Through the expert advice, interactive tools, and educational events they provide, they've become the go-to resource for cancer patients and survivors nationwide. 

Their vision is to eliminate fear and uncertainty for working people with cancer. They strive to do so by offering a comprehensive website that educates more than 250,000 visitors per year, free publications, career coaching, and a series of support groups and educational seminars for employees with cancer, their healthcare providers, and their coworkers. The Cancer and Careers program was established by the Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation, the charitable arm of Cosmetic Executive Women, Inc., a nonprofit trade organization of executives in the beauty, cosmetics, fragrance, and related industries.

I had the chance to preview some of the offerings, including the Clinique Custom Repair Serum, the IT Cosmetics CC Radiance Palette with Airbrush Powder Brush and the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks.  All three are extremely versatile and I can't wait to integrate them into my beauty routine! 

Skin-telligence. The Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum is designed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and help even and brighten the appearance of skin for a look that's simply brilliant!

The IT Cosmetics CC Radiance Palette with Airbrush Powder Brush is a bronzer, blush and highlighter aficionado's dream! Finely milled and lushly pigmented, this foolproof trio creates a perfected face in seconds and the brush is a whisper-soft companion for effortless application. It's a truly pretty pairing! 

Official details below:

What is it: Your perfect lighting and complexion perfection in a palette! Color correcting with antiaging ingredients, this is one palette with three different complexion-enhancing, hydrating powders formulated to help give the appearance of even, bright skin and add a youthful-looking warmth to your skin without creasing, cracking, or settling into fine lines and wrinkles.

CC+ Brightening All Over Finishing Powder helps to blur the appearance of skin imperfections. CC+ Matte Brightening Blush adds the look of light and vitality into your skin with an easy-to-blend powder blush stain. CC+ Matte Bronzer adds sun-kissed warmth and glow to your skin without shimmer or glitter. Paired with the CC+ Double Airbrush Ball Powder Brush for optical blurring, this palette gives you complexion perfection in a single easy-to-use palette.

Who is it for: Everyone who wants one palette set to help brighten and add warmth to your beauty routine while color correcting the appearance of skin imperfections; wants to help hydrate and address skin concerns while wearing natural-looking makeup; and wants the look of perfect lighting.

Why is it different: It's infused with antiaging peptides; niacin; hyaluronic acid; hydrolyzed collagen; algae; vitamins A, B, C, and E; and Drops of Light technology, without becoming cakey or creasing throughout the day. The CC+ Color Correcting pigments are infused into each powder, evening the appearance of all skin tones and applying color that not only brightens and warms the skin but also helps to blur the appearance of skin imperfections.

How do I use it: Using the powder brush, dust the finishing powder all over for an instant brightening to your skin, plus color correction for the look of even tone. Next, sweep the bronzer across your forehead, under the cheekbones, along the jawline, and down your neck, for the perfect touch of warmth and color correction. Finish with the blush by smiling then gently blending onto the apples of your cheeks.

Finally, the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pale Pink is a multi-tasking gem.  The creamy formula is wildly pigmented and smoothly and adeptly applies on both cheeks and lips. I appreciate the subtle medium neutral pink tone of this rouge and adore tossing it in my handbag for whenever I need to instantly revive my face with a cloak of color.  The Pot Rouge in Pale Pink is a must for pink lovers and blush and lip color devotees alike! 

Official details: 

What is it: Bobbi's bestselling, multitasking cream color just got even better! It's now in a mirrored flip-top compact for on-the-spot application.

Who is it for: All skin types.

Why is it different: You get two products in one. Blend it on the apples of your cheeks for a just-pinched look, or blot it on your lips for a soft, stained finish. For drier skin types, be sure to moisturize skin first.

How do I use it: Press onto apples of cheeks, blending out and down toward hairline. Can be applied with fingertips. Press onto lips instead of lipstick. Apply with fingertips or lip brush (not included). Can be worn alone or with lip liner and lip gloss.

This formula is hydrating enough to be a brilliant lip color.
