An eco-friendly formula and the Milano Beauty Week colour to help a charity that gives beauty a beneficial meaning in difficult times. This year Confalonieri Cosmetica is a part of MBW with a special product, a lip pencil that will be distributed during the event to help an association that supports cancer patients: from 27 September to 2 October we’ll colour Milan with beauty, during the event organised by Cosmetica Italia.
Last year we showcased a preview version of Dark Queen eye pencil and now for MBW 2023 we created a lip pencil that works perfectly both as a lip liner and as lipstick, with a limited edition colour that resembles the logo of the event. We didn’t create it from scratch: we started from a Confalonieri product that combines quality and environmental sustainability.
From colour to cap, 100% customised
We developed this special product from our Think Greener lip pencil, creating a special colouring for MBW and designing a specific external finish, including the cap. Just like we do for our customers’ projects, we’ve worked on a specific idea, building on one of our products and developing a pencil that’s completely customised for the event.
Unlike the standard Think Greener, this formula is not vegan because we’ve added a pinch of carmine pigment, but the qualities of the formula are all there. The texture is rich in emollients, with organic coconut oil, vitamin E and gamma-oryzanol in a long-lasting and heat-resistant formula. The raw materials that make up the pencil are entirely of natural origin and the wood, as for all our products, is PEFC certified.
La forza e il sorriso, the strength of a smile
Why did we choose a lip pencil? During MBW Cosmetica Italia is fundraising for a non-profit organisation named La forza e il sorriso, which translates to “Strength and smile”. This year we take part in the event with a product that relates to the name and the activities of the association: few things enhance a smile like a beautiful lipstick and we’ll give out a very special pencil, to everyone making a donation.
La forza e il sorriso organises free make up workshops dedicated to women fighting against cancer, as an opportunity to find a moment of positivity, together, in a difficult path. Since 2007 its workshops and activities have involved over 20.000 women, with the support of several companies in the beauty and make up industry, coordinated by Cosmetica Italia.
