For just $20 you can buy the latest in political statements – for your lips. If you are angry about the political landscape, would like to have half of the proceeds from your makeup donated to a women’s charity, and want to look good at the same time, this is for you.
With F*ck Trump printed in thick black letters down the side of the packaging, you can touch-up your lips and let everyone around you know exactly what you think of the current administration.
The F*ck Trump lipstick is available directly from college start-up company LipSlut. Created by Katie Sones, a junior in college at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, it is a result of her frustration at Trump’s election in particular and the practices of cosmetic companies in general. The LipSlut website says:
“Let’s just say we aren’t too pleased with our current socio-political landscape, and the standards of the cosmetics industry in general. Chances are you aren’t either. Rather than complaining, we’re putting our money where our mouth is.”
The mid-tone, pale pink color was the winner of a social media vote, and other colors will be available at a later date. Katie says she wants to keep her blossoming business lean by sticking with a single offering, to begin with, but she plans to expand into other cosmetics too.
Also, when you purchase your lipstick, you can vote for which charity will receive half of the proceeds. Options include Planned Parenthood, The Center For Reproductive Rights, She Should Run, and the National Organization For Women.
