Coty Inc.’s Sally Hansen and Cover Girl brands. introduced new products and partnerships with GLAAD for Pride. Sally Hansen is releasing four gift sets featuring her Insta-Dri franchise in a range of colors, including the Rainbow Pride and Transgender Pride color combos. Cover Girl products will be sold alongside Sally Hansen gift sets. While the partnership is product-focused, it marks Cover Girl’s first partnership with GLAAD. Sally Hansen has, to date, donated more than $400,000 to the organization.
Youth to the People is donating $100,000 through its To The Future fund to two different nonprofits: GLSEN, which aims to end discrimination and harassment in schools; and NCTE, the National Center for Transgender Equity.
Lashify is partnering with the Center for Black Equity, an organization that benefits LGBTQ people of color internationally. The brand is donating 100% of the gross profits from its rainbow lashes, the Prismatic Gossamer lash, to the organization, up to $50,000.

The net proceeds from Morphe’s Made With Pride collection – a series of two palettes, face and body gems and brushes – will be donated to the Trevor Project.
