Breast Cancer is something that has affected many of our friends, moms, sisters and daughters. The Accessories Council and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation hosted a "Pink Picks" social media event this week at the beautifully chic Marchon Eyewear Showroom in NYC.

BeansTalk was lucky enough to spend the evening with other influential social media fashion lovers to learn about this year's hottest products that "have gone" pink for October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Since 1993, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) has raised over $330 million to help in the advance cancer research that will help lead to prevention and a cure. With the help of Accessories Council President, Karen Giberson, the BCRF showcased some great products that give us a reason not only to shop, but to help a worthy cause at the same time.

Below are just a few of our favorites. By purchasing any of these Think Pink products, a proceed will go to help fight breast cancer.

La Mer, which we're told will sell out in a week, will donate $10 for every limited edition lip balm purchased. $45 at and select specialty stores including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Celebrity designer, Alex Woo, has created a chic, pink, breast cancer awareness adjustable mini-chord bracelet with a sterling silver breast cancer charm to show her support. Available at for $80.

Lacoste has created only 500 pairs of these adorable navy and pink sunglasses just for the month of October. Available at Lacoste boutiques, and Marchon Eyewear for $138. They will donate 10% to BCRF.

Bobbi Brown will offer a limited edition lip set featuring a Bellini High Shimmer Lip Gloss and Pink Lip color October-December 31 exclusively at Bobbi Brown counters and for $44. $10 will be donated from each purchase.

For our tech-lovers out there, chicBuds is donating 20% of purchases from their chicBoom keychain speakers. Only an inch big, this mini-speaker is perfect for someone on the go. $29.99 at

Fashion designer, mom of three and all around multi-tasker, Deborah Sawaf of Thale Blanc will be donating $50 from each La Pochette accessory purchased during the month of October. Sawaf flew in from LA just for the Accessories Council Pink Picks event. Available at
