Now, I’m going to try and keep the politics out of this as much as possible (even though I am a staunch Obama supporter, voted for him once and will vote again in November for him)-but when I heard about this, I had to pass it on.
As part of the Obama campaign Runway to Win initiative, Le Metier de Beaute (or should I say Richard Blanch, one of the bigwigs) has come up with a special set for $40-with all of the monies going to the Obama campaign. For the $40, you get three polishes: Red-y To Win Red (a deep red), Victory White (clean white, probably a cream), and Bo Blue (a shimmery navy blue). A very patriotic set, complete with a little cosmetic bag with the Obama campaign logo on it.
To me, this is a total win-win. Wanted to support the campaign AND get some polish to boot? This is great for that. I know some people may be turned off by the fact that it is for the Obama campaign, but I have to say that the whole Runway to Win initiative is quite genius. There’s also a lot of different fashion designers who did t-shirts, totes, and even scarves for the campaign-but the polishes? You can never go wrong with. The one thing I’ve heard is that the Le Metier polishes are quite small, but that they are great. I rarely buy polish nowadays though…so yeah.
