Highlighting Thrive Causemetics for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Here's a story worth telling for October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Karissa Bodnar is the founder of Thrive Causemetics, which tagline is “Beauty with a Purpose”. As a makeup artist, she has volunteered with several cancer organizations throughout her career, including Look Good, Feel Better, an organization which helps improve the self-image and appearance of women undergoing cancer treatment. The number one question Karissa received while volunteering was about women asking her about false eyelashes and how to make them stay. It just so happens that false eyelashes don't hold on women who have lost their lashes.
So, with the help of some top engineers, her new company developed a proprietary design for false eyelashes for women who have lost their own. And now there exists Thrive Causemetics Faux Lashes which, thanks to the design of flexible lash band, work for women when the usual drugstore falsies have failed them because didn't stay up, caused irritation or looked completely fake.
The Thrive Causemetics adhesive, which works well on all skin types, is also a component in making these false eyelashes stay on. It's also a proprietary – all-natural – formula that contains no chemicals yet provides a 24-hour hold. Yes Mam!
Karissa's mission is to boost the self-esteem of anyone who uses her products. Which is why she uses the One-for-One model: for every product sold, one is directly donated to a woman going through cancer treatment.
We think this company is noteworthy because of its business model being seamlessly integrated to an important and noble cause and because its high quality products are all natural and paraben, sulfate, latex and cruelty FREE. And vegan.
For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Thrive Causemetics is offering a limited edition waterproof eyeliner duo in two colors for $40. See the video. Remember that if you buy one, a woman undergoing cancer treatment will be getting one too.

In Karissa's words, “It's not just about surviving, it's about thriving. Beauty with a purpose”.
