What’s Your Virtue?

Truth be told, I consider myself quite a liberal personality.  That is, until it comes to young girls—not only the message they send to others, but the message we as adults send to them.  Enter “What’s Your Virtue?”

When Amy, Molly, and Sara contacted me about a giveaway for their product, the moment I understood the message behind it, I nearly jumped out of my seat.  

IMG_0104

Here’s what their site has to say: 

“…an idea was born to create a lip gloss that would support a positive message, not only for girls but for women everywhere.…a company founded by three friends who believe beauty starts from within.”  IMG_0105

The ladies at What’s Your Virtue have graciously offered a lucky commenter an entire set like you see pictured.  I’m not much of a make up wearer, but I’m pretty much addicted to this lip gloss.  Consider yourself forewarned.all_products

Simply leave a comment in order to be entered.  I’ll announce the lucky winner Wednesday night. 

Can’t wait until then and wanna purchase a set to give one to every strong, beautiful, self-respecting woman in your life?  Simply head on over to What’s Your Virtue and enter chris15 to receive 15% off your order!  How great is that???

P.S.  My name is a coupon code.  They have no idea what that did for my ego.

I'm new to reading your blog and giveaways. I'm not sure how that works. I was just happy to see this company promoting such wonderful virtues instead of "sexy" "flirty" "glamorous" which we are constantly seeing from other cosmetic companies.

Jennifer said...

I love this idea - would love to win and to share these products with my neices.
Thanks for the opportunity

Katy said...

I love lip gloss!!!!

Jane said...

Your first sentence about liberal values until it comes to the messages we send to women and girls fits me to a tee. I cringe when I see words like "hottie" on children. Love the virtues they chose too. Not too often women are encouraged to be curious.

Lettered Cottage said...

Great giveaway friend!
Would love to win!

Layla :-)

Sheri said...

AutumnBrooke said...

Oh I love this idea! I agree with the others. I don't want to give my girls the impression that "sexy" and "flirty" are the only things people value.

Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

We totally share this addiction of lip gloss :) I wish I could take you on a video tour of the places I stash it...in the car, a few in the purse, in the drawer next to the kitchen sink, in my bed night stand, and my personal favorite the one in the base of the fake tree next to my spot on the couch in the tv room ha ha ha.

The Miss' Momma said...

What a great idea!!

Vindiciti said...

Brilliant idea! I totally agree with the first comment. It reminds me of a friend's preteen daughter that got a body spray she liked, but had to scribble out the name because she felt it offensive (sexy)! I'd love to win and send her a tube!

Kindra said...

They look FUN! And who doesn't something new to pamper themselves. What a fun giveaway!

Christy said...

I also don't wear makeup, but I can't live without my tube of chapstick or my fave lip gloss!

Amy Kinser said...

What a great product for our girls. I am the mom to a very modest, beautiful, virtuous, fifteen year old and would love for her to have something like this. She wears very little makeup and this would be neat for her to have. Bravo to this company.

Blessings, Amy

Jill said...

My daughter would LOVE this!!!

Margaret said...

very cool, love lipgloss!

brooke said...

This is refreshing especially because my husband just received the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition in the mail.

I was so disappointed to see four of our female Olympic athletes (in snowboarding and skiing) featured so provacatively.

I love companies that promote good values for young women rather than more skankiness and sleeze.

Awesome.

Monique said...

I love lip gloss and love this creative idea of the wording.

The Damsel In DisDress said...

Oh my! I so need the lip gloss. I have 2 young girls! This is such a great idea. I also struggle trying to teach my children opposite of what they are getting through media and their friends. I don't just teach these things to my girls, but also my Son. I don't like the stereo types for him either. Thanks for mentioning this wonderful topic!

mom2four said...

What a great idea. Lip gloss is my must have!

TeacherMom said...

Wow, I love this idea. I teach first grade and I already have girls that wear makeup and heels to school. I think our girls need to understand that beauty comes from character!

Keana C. said...

I just came across your blog the other day and I am hooked. You are truly talented!
This is an awesome giveaway!

LacyHolly said...

This is a great idea! What a fabulous concept behind the lip gloss...not just for profit, but nice that they thought the names and such through :)

Callie said...

Wow! What a beautiful and inspiring set of lip gloss, just what I find your blog to be. I come here for inspiration and always find beauty!

Chacoy said...

I am an addict, of lipgloss that is;}
It is great to see women promoting good virtues for other women and especially young girls; we need more women like these three; who care about the way young girls perceive themselves.

Thanks for the opprotunity!

Amy said...

I agree!! Great idea!

TY! :)

What a great concept! Crossing my fingers that I win :-)

My Little said...

I love this idea. We are constantly trying to make sure we compliment our daughther on her "inside" beauty, because that's what really counts. Plus, I adore cosmetics...so this is great!

Tammy said...

love the idea and the product! i hope i win so i can share with my sisters, my mom and my daughter!

Jenawright2 said...

Oh man, I am a lip gloss nut!! How awesome that they combined such gorgeous colors with such a positive message. I'd love to win these and share them with my 15 year old sister and her friends. With all the magazines depicting their version of beauty (skinny girls with skimpy outfits), teen girls forget what real beauty is (smart girls who respect themselves).

ProudNana said...

I am a lip gloss aholic lol. As the mom of a 19 and 21 year old daughter I have to say that I love the women of this line. Girls today are bombarded with ads to destroy their self image and I have to give a big high five to these women!

Reese said...

Lip gloss = LOVE! Hopefully more companies will start promoting these same virtues and values. This is awesome!

Carrie Rogers said...

I love these products!! I'm going to have to show these to my 11 yr old daughter! She's in middle school now which means her life is full of drama!

Diana said...

Lip gloss is so much fun--half lipstick, half chapstick so you don't need a mirror to apply it. And you can do it at the restaurant table after you eat without feeling cheesy.

Tracey said...

what a great idea for a postive endorsement for girls and women... I love this idea and it seems like a long time coming!! congrats to the three ingenious ladies!!

Tamara Ann said...

I love this...and I agree with so many other comments that seeing these virtues rather than "sexy" or "flirty" is fantastic. Especially since my 4 year old is already starting to get in to lip glosses, I would much rather her get this message than the others!

What a wonderful product concept! As a mom to a middle school aged daughter, I am constantly fighting the battle of tasteful and appropriate while still fulfilling her desire for cute. This product definitely fits the bill. Thanks for the introduction!

2 Green Eyed Girls said...

I just went to the website for these products and I really love the idea behind their creations. I have 2 daughters, 5 & 3, but I'm already realizing that they pick up on certain words and moods. It's great to know that products like this exist and what a nice treat for that sweet young lady in your life (or ahem, 30 something too).

Autumn Twig said...

173 comments!!! and I thought it wouldn't be difficult to win a giveaway :( especially because we don't have this product where I live.

No problem. I like your take on product messages though. its so important to play that power right.

Karma Darling said...

What a lovely notion, to remind us that Kindness should be 'on our lips', rather than "Look at me, look at me". Well done, ladies!

lorchick @ ON{thelaundry}LINE said...

i'd love to win these, I am in the need for a new brand of lipgloss to love and cherish. My old brand is too expensive and I'm having a hard time finding something new I like. Lipgloss is HARD.
