the cause

Domestic Violence is the No. 1 cause of injury for women ages 15 to 44. As many as one in three teens will experience abuse in a dating relationship. In many of these cases, Domestic Violence goes unreported, and many women consequently suffer alone through feelings of depression, anxiety or social isolation.


Mary Kay® is committed to giving the issue of Domestic Violence its full attention, and provides many women with several channels of support. By addressing the public on the issue through these inspirational documentaries, Mary Kay hopes to empower women of all ages and begin the conversation that will help resolve the cycle of the Domestic Violence.


Everyone can lend a helping hand to those in need! Mary Kay® is giving the opportunity to support this essential cause, as well as the documentary that inspired you the most with Beauty That Counts lipstick. With every purchase of Give Dreams, Give Hope, and Give Joy Lipsticks from Mary Kay’s Beauty That Counts, we will make a contribution to help Domestic Violence shelters provide their services to women and children in need. Through beauty, confidence, and goodwill, we can make a difference to educate the public on Domestic Violence and give hope to women across the world. These lipsticks will be on the market in September, 2011.
