Public invited to help choose the 2016 Spring/Summer KROMA® “Promise Me” color

Melbourne, FL – March 1, 2016 – The Preeclampsia Foundation announced today that KROMA® Makeup, a central Florida-based professional makeup line, will be launching a new “Promise Me” botanical collection to benefit the Foundation’s mission and raise awareness of preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is a potentially life-threatening hypertensive disorder of pregnancy that affects approximately five to eight percent of all pregnancies in the United States.

“At KROMA® we have always focused on helping moms making healthy choices for their skin and bodies that are ‘natural, trendy and limitless,’ even before ‘natural’ reached today’s prime,” said KROMA® Makeup Founder Lee Cristou. “The ‘Promise Me’ botanical collection is an opportunity for us to extend that promise toward supporting healthy moms and babies who have been affected by preeclampsia.”
The general public is invited to vote here for their favorite lipstick choice for the official Spring/Summer “Promise Me” color now through March 15, 2016 from three lip color choices: “Promise Me ROSES”, “Promise Me ENCHANTED”, or “Promise Me CHOCOLAT.” No purchase is necessary to vote.

The winning “Promise Me” lipstick color will be paired with a blush and eye shadow in complementary shades; the “Promise Me” color collection will then be announced on March 16, 2016 and made available for purchase via the KROMA® website at www.kromamakeup.com. Ten percent of all sales from the “Promise Me” collection will benefit the Preeclampsia Foundation. An additional color contest will be run for their Fall/Winter collection.

“This unique partnership with KROMA® Makeup represents a mom-centric opportunity for us to raise awareness of preeclampsia,” said Preeclampsia Foundation Executive Director Eleni Tsigas.

KROMA® is a national sponsor the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia, which will host 40 events nationwide in May and June. May is National Preeclampsia Awareness Month, deliberately chosen to coincide with Mother’s Day weekend.
