April is Earth Month so Aveda has created a limited edition candle for the occasion. With French lavender, lavandin and clary sage sourced from the Diois region of northern Provence, France. The fragrance is calming and stress-relieving. Plus, the £12.80 per candle sold in the UK goes to Global Greengrants Fund (GGF) to support its water-related projects. Learn more about GGF at www.greengrants.org and buy the candle here...you can hardly say no now can you?

Next up, celebrity makeup artist, Karen Alder (she's worked with likes of Kylie Minogue, Thandie Newton and Roisin Murphy) has created a red lipstick that is guaranteed to suit everyone! The shade has just the right balance of blue and orange tones, with a flattering satin finish. It's called TRUST, £8, and all proceeds from the sales excluding VAT go directly to The Prince’s Trust. Buy yours here from tomorrow...

Lastly, Lady Gaga has launched a new lipstick and lipglass for MAC's Viva Glam initiative to help fight the spread of HIV/AIDS. And today, MAC launches www.vivaglam.com where Gaga is encouraging her fans to upload pictures of themselves in her new lippie. Then, this autumn Gaga’s stylist and Thierry Mugler Creative Director Nicola Formichetti will choose a collection of the images to be printed onto fabric that he will fashion into a couture dress for Lady Gaga to wear. All the money (minus VAT) from the lipstick Light warm beige (amplified), £13.50 and Lipglass Light neutral pinked beige, £12.50 go to support of men, women and children who have been affected and living with HIV.
