In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, bluGloss is going pink: we dedicate this post to everyone -- everywhere -- who has been or will be affected by breast cancer.
Let's start by setting the mood -- click here.
Pink Gets a Bad Rap
Too often, pink is pigeonholed as girly or juvenile. Well, no more -- nobody puts (pink) baby in a corner! Though it’s true that pink is the ultimate feminine color -- we'd argue it’s much more versatile than you might think at first, ahem, blush.

So, whether it's unabashedly bold and feminine Pink...
...or pink that's a bit more demure...
we are confident there's probably a pink out there for you.
Glossers, what do you think? Could you do a pink-walled bedroom? Would pink drapes make your heart sing, or your stomach churn?
To those of you in the fight against breast cancer -- our thoughts are with you.
