Blush & Whimsy color-changing lipsticks

Blush & Whimsy is thrilled to announce that it has been chosen to gift notable film nominees with its signature color-changing lipsticks. This year’s Oscar nominees for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director will receive fabulous swag bags filled with luxurious products, including Blush & Whimsy lipsticks. The Academy Awards, hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel, will be held on March 4, 2018.

Oscar nominees will have the opportunity to try out Blush & Whimsy utterly magical lipsticks. The lipstick line changes color based on the pH and temperature of an individual's skin for a shade that is uniquely theirs. The FDA-approved lipsticks — which are not tested on animals — are made with luxurious ingredients such as cocoa butter, botanical extracts and lavender oil. 

For us, the true 'magic' of Blush & Whimsy is in this company's commitment to empowering people with disabilities. We applaud Micaela's business sense, and we're proud our network can support this innovative startup as we build an Inclusion Economy.™

Steve Soroka, SourceAmerica President and CEO

Blush & Whimsy lipsticks are like something out of a fairytale. The lipsticks are gorgeously packed and using their exclusive LipGlass technology, Blush & Whimsy each contain a lovely real flower.

“We believe that everyone is beautiful, and it’s celebrating what makes us different that we can redefine what true beauty is,” says Micaela Brown, founder and chief inspiration officer of Blush & Whimsy. “We’re honored that Oscar nominees will experience the magic of our lipsticks for themselves.”

The gift bags are sponsored by SourceAmerica, a national nonprofit leader in creating employment opportunities and choices for people with disabilities. The bags were packaged by employees of SourceAmerica member nonprofit Adelante Development Center in Albuquerque.
