A college student created an anti-President Trump lipstick to voice her disapproval of the president and fight back against how she views women’s issues being dealt with under the Trump administration. After the presidential election, Katie Sones, a junior at Cal Poly, took action by creating cosmetic brand Lipslut and a pink matte anti-Trump lipstick called “F*ck Trump.”
Half of the lipstick sales will go to the woman’s charity that receives the most votes from customers during checkout. The website says the lipstick is “50 percent towards charity, 100 percent against tyranny and of course, 100 percent cruelty-free.” “People are going to buy lipstick either way, so if you could do that and have the money go somewhere that you support, that would be perfect,” Sones told the Cal Poly publication Mustang News. The Lipslut website says that by purchasing the lipstick, customers are taking a stand and taking action, supporting a cause and empowering women to create a better future.
Lipslut is currently pre-selling the $19.95 liquid lipstick and taking votes for the charity that proceeds will go to. Some of the possible charities include Planned Parenthood, American Civil Liberties Union and Women on Wings.
“We really believe in people supporting a company that they can get behind,” Sones told Mustang News. “We want to integrate philanthropy into everyday life – why not support something you care about?”
