Join the Fight Against Ovarian Cancer This Month with Laura Mercier

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and today is National Wear Teal Day to help bring attention and show support to the cause. To help bring the disease to the top of minds of women everywhere, world-renowned cosmetics brand, Laura Mercier, is asking us all to join the fight. Click through the slideshow to learn more.

The Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund (LMOCF) was started by Laura Mercier, founder of Laura Mercier cosmetics, and Claudia Poccia, President & CEO of Gurwitch Products, the brand's parent company. Both women's lives were touched by loved ones who faced ovarian cancer.  In 2011, Poccia lost her younger sister, Laura Lia Murray who was only 39 years old, to the disease. Mercier has witnessed her dear friend, Ranee Flynn bravely battle ovarian cancer for years. Last September LMOCF was launched with the mission of educating women about the disease, supporting those who were undergoing treatment, and funding research for a cure. 

This year, in order to support the cause, Laura Mercier will donate 100 percent of the profits from the sale of three products to the Fund.  Additionally, anyone may make a direct donation to the Fund through its dedicated website, The collection products include:

The Bonne Mine Healthy Glow For Face & Cheeks Crème Color Palette is an easy way to achieve a sun-kissed glow.  Priced at $48, this ultra-sheer, blendable and portable palette was inspired by Laura Mercier's work with celebrity clients, who wanted a universal compact that would "wake-up" their skin.

Give skin an on-the-go, healthy, sun-kissed glow with the Matte Radiance Healthy Glow Baked Powder & Mini Face Brush. This duet features an exclusive shimmering pink shade of Matte Radiance Baked Powder, plus a Mini Face Brush for flawless application.  Use the petite and portable powder for an effortless glow - just dust on the radiant, soft pink shade on the places that the sun naturally hits - the cheeks, nose and forehead. The limited edition duo is available for $36.

The limited edition Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Kiss of Hope is a shimmering peachy-pink shade that virtually enhances any skin tone by creating a subtle contrast in texture. Offering a high-shine, perfectly pigmented lip gloss for $24, enjoy long-lasting color and brilliant shine that creates the appearance of fuller lips.

"We would love for women to know that they can look and feel beautiful, inside and out, knowing that they have supported a cause which helps women," said a rep for the brand.

Today is National Wear Teal Day, so if you're rocking the color, share an image of the look using the special hashtag #LMOCFTEAL to show your support in the fight against Ovarian Cancer.
