F*ck Trump by Lipslut—a long-wear, mid-tone, nude-pink matte formula—makes a bold cosmetic statement while taking real action. A group of self-proclaimed LA “jaded romantics” founded Lipslut following the 2016 presidential election with a mission to change the world—one matte finish at a time. They promise 50 percent of all earnings will go towards civil rights organizations targeted by the Trump administration, making your vitamin E-rich, coconut oil-based lipstick a fashion-forward statement against tyranny. Every purchase includes the opportunity to vote for which civil rights organization you want the proceeds to go towards, and at the end of the campaign, the cause with the popular vote will be selected—because this is a democracy, duh.
But through July 19, 100 percent of the cruelty-free, vegan liquid lipstick earnings will support those families separated at the border. Since the inhumane “zero-tolerance policy” was made stricter by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, upwards of 2,000 immigrant children have been separated from their parents at the southern border in the months of April and May alone, Homeland Security reports.
These actions have been taken without any law mandating the separation of families, drawing the world’s attention towards America as it continues to treat illegal (non-criminal) aliens like actual aliens. The real world crisis strengthens when Trump supporters feel no shame putting these separated families in “detention centers”—or overcrowded cages, as they should be properly called—and then leaving children as young as three years old to defend themselves in deportation court hearings. The fight to reunite families remains in full effect as it is estimated that an average of 45 children are taken from their parents each day, Vox reports.
Normalizing inhumane behavior is not normal, so stock up! Let it be known that families should stay together, and F*ck Trump!
Lipslut is available here for $19.95.
