PeaceKeeper Cause-metics, founded by Jody Weiss, is the first make-up company in history to donate ALL of its profits, after taxes, to womenâ€™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 womenâ€™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 Goodâ„¢, Ms. Weiss expects PeaceKeeper products, and thereby the women who use them, to become imbued with the power of advocacy and transformation. â€œThe choice is simple: become a part of the solution, become a PeaceKeeper.â€
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 Crimeâ€™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, â€œPeaceKeeper builds a bridge in the land-of-plenty to women who canâ€™t even afford a lipstick.â€
