Over two years ago, I met Nalie Agustin during her first bout with breast cancer. She was one of the first beneficiaries of our Beauty with a Purpose™ giving mission and one of the first people to ever try Thrive’s false lashes. My connection with Nalie was magnetic, and she’s been a friend of Thrive Causemetics ever since.
In early January, Nalie received word that her cancer had returned and spread to her lungs. Without a second thought, I flew from Seattle to be with her in her hometown of Montreal. Miraculously, she had the energy to give me an express tour of the city, even though she had recently completed her first round of chemotherapy.
Nalie is the embodiment of all things Thrive Causemetics and namesake of our iconic Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner shade, Nalie (Chocolate Brown Shimmer). This eyeliner cannot encapsulate all that she is, but whenever I see it I think of her: strong, driven and one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met.
Thank YOU for making special connections like this possible. We are so grateful that you’ve chosen to join us in empowering women, like our dear friend Nalie, through our Beauty with a Purpose™ giving mission. We couldn’t do it without you!
