Lipslut was founded in January 2017 on the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration. Now, 17 months later, the company is helping reunite thousands of migrant children with their parents.
Among the company’s flagship products are a pink nude lipstick called “F*ck Trump” and a bold, red-carpet shade called “F*ck Hollywood” which launched during the Time’s Up Movement.
With names like those, it’s probably no surprise that the company is socially conscious and always willing to jump into the discussions that surround serious topics. Lipslut has even raised $40,000 for victims of the Charlottesville attack in August 2017, according to Elle.
Now, the company is taking aim at Donald Trump’s child separation police which has ripped more than 2,200 children from their parents.
Since launching the “F*ck Trump” lipstick, the company has been donating 50% of the profits from each purchase to the buyer’s choice of civil rights organizations. Each donation can be made to various groups that Trump has personally attacked since becoming President.
Now, the company is helping by donating 100% of all profits from its F*ck Trump matt liquid lipstick to charities that support reuniting families. Among those organizations are the “Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center, and Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights,” Elle notes.
When asked why she founded Lipslut, founder Katie Stones told Popsugar:
“I was literally watching Trump’s inauguration and decided I had to take action. I created Lipslut after recognizing my passion for cosmetics could be used as a vehicle to inspire social activism. It’s meant to be a middle finger to the current socio-political landscape.”
