PeaceKeeper Cause-metics ~ Make A Difference Through Makeup

PeaceKeeper Cause-metics, founded by Jody Weiss, is the first make-up company in history to donate ALL of its profits, after taxes, to women’s health and human rights advocacy issues. A successful fund-raiser and non-violence advocate, Ms. Weiss, is using PeaceKeeper as her tool to continue to raise funds for numerous women’s organizations while instilling the message that PeaceKeepers use make-up not for approval from others but to celebrate their own beauty.

Dedicated to helping women Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good™, Ms. Weiss expects PeaceKeeper products, and thereby the women who use them, to become imbued with the power of advocacy and transformation. “The choice is simple: become a part of the solution, become a PeaceKeeper.”

The inspirational PeaceKeeperâ„¢ Cause-Meticsâ„¢ line consists of 12 Lip Paints, 10 Nail Paints and 4 Lip Glosses, with the newly launched V-Day lip gloss joining the collection in honor of V-Day. In addition to never using animals in the testing of their products, all PeaceKeeper Paints are rich, creamy and free of harmful chemicals such as toluene and formaldehyde. Offering Lip Paint colors with names like Paint Me Empoweredâ„¢ and Paint Me Compassionateâ„¢, PeaceKeeper urges women everywhere to use their power as consumers to make a difference.

I am wearing Paint Me Forgiving as my NOTD color. It’s described on the PeaceKeeper website as a shimmery light beige flesh tone. On me it’s a dusty pink tone and the pearly shimmer adds a lot of depth. The application was similar to Zoya in my opinion. I think the lack of chemicals leads to a thicker consistency but that doesn’t hinder it’s ability to spread smoothly on the nail.

Peacekeeper NailPaints retail for $12 and can be purchased on the PeaceKeeper website using PayPal.

Also, check out the Million Kisses Campaign. It raises money to fund education for women and girls who are victims of sexually exploitive situations and slavery. Supported by actress Julia Ormond, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s (UNODC) Goodwill Ambassador for the Abolition of Slavery and Human Trafficking, an awareness video plays at Whole Foods and other PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics retailers. It shows how the proceeds from buying just a few PeaceKeeper products can help educate a girl and give her economic options. According to Weiss, “PeaceKeeper builds a bridge in the land-of-plenty to women who can’t even afford a lipstick.”

How it works:

  • Purchase a PeaceKeeper Lip Paint
  • Apply the Lip Paint and kiss the Kiss Canvas that can be found inside the package (The Kiss Canvas can also be downloaded from: http://www.iamapeacekeeper.com/)
  • Write who the kiss is for and why. Mail the Kiss Canvas to the PeaceKeeper Fund with $1
  • The kiss gets uploaded into the Kiss Museum on the PeaceKeeper Website to be viewed

The “Best Kisses” are eligible to win prizes including airline tickets for two anywhere in the USA, PeaceKeeper products and other gifts listed on the PeaceKeeper Website.

PeaceKeeper Lip Paints come in a wide variety of colors and are sold in Whole Foods stores, Pharmaca, Earth Fare and other stores nationwide. Suggested retail price is $16.50.

    Wow!Talk about Serendipity!I am doing volunteer work for a local organization that helps women who have been sexually exploited.It is an area that is growing in leaps & bounds due to the internet.And so few people to help due to the stigma involved.These woment are typically victims,not criminals.Glad to see others taking up the cause.
