Spend $20 on Elizabeth Arden's limited-edition anniversary lipstick in Red Door Red and all proceeds from your purchase will go to Look Good Feel Better, an organization dedicated to helping cancer patients look good, improve their self-esteem, and manage their treatment and recovery with self-confidence. A fitting tribute from a company founded by a strong woman: "Elizabeth Arden (née Florence Nightingale Graham) was an immigrant entrepreneur who became one of the wealthiest women of her time. She also contributed to the concept of the 1920s “new woman.” A champion of women’s rights, Arden once marched past her Red Door Salon on Fifth Avenue alongside a team of fellow suffragettes, all wearing bright lipstick as a symbol of strength."
