We know that when moms invest in beauty products, you’re expecting them to work a little bit of magic. New lines from EOS, Sephora, and Basq are promising to do just that, all with a touch of whimsy thanks to their Disney-inspired packaging.
Using Alice in Wonderland as its muse, skin care company EOS just launched a new line of lip balms in Blueberry Potion, Sweet Vanilla Nonsense, and Watermelon Wonderland flavors. As if that’s not fun enough, the egg-shaped applicator features Mickey Mouse shaped grooves.
For a bit more of the “royal” treatment, head on over to Sephora, which is unveiling individual cosmetic lines for every Disney Princess. The three piece Cinderella collection is available now. The stunning packaging references different scenes in the film, and each shade name is based on objects or characters in the film.
Last but not least, The Disney Store recently teamed up with maternity skin care company Basq to create a line for expecting moms. Our favorite product is Pure Bliss, a lotion that chills your skin to provide relief from daily aches and pains. Now if that’s not magic I’m not sure what is!

In case you didn’t already know, October is National Bullying Awareness month – a time dedicated to increasing bullying prevention and decreasing the amount of bullying-related suicides. In support of the cause, beauty company Soap & Glory has teamed up with Stomp Out Bullying (the leading anti-bullying program in the U.S.) to create the Proud Mouth Campaign. The new campaign encourages everyone to not only respect, but also celebrate others’ similarities and differences by being cautious of their words and actions.
Over the next year, Soap & Glory will donate $1 from every sale of Baby Doll Sexy Mother Pucker plumping gloss ($15; sephora.com) to help fund the Stomp Out Bullying Helpchat, a live and confidential chat line available for 13 to 24-year-olds facing bullying issues. Every purchase gets this team closer to reaching its $25,000 goal—and making kids feel a whole lot safer.
