Activist Beauty Brand Lipslut Launches F*ck Kavanaugh Lipstick


Activist beauty brand Lipslut, the brain behind the F*ck Trump matte liquid lipstick, is at it again. They have just launched the F*ck Kavanaugh liquid lipstick in a perfect shade for fighting the system: Protest Red. The product was made in reaction to Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Lipslut polled its Instagram following to decide what color a F*ck Kavanaugh lippe should be, ending up with a cool-toned maroon. The color is everything hotheaded Kavanaugh is not: calm, cool, and collected. From October 3rd until October 7th, Lipslut donated 100% of the proceeds from the pre-orders of the product to anti-sexual assault organizations and will continue to donate 50% from here on out. Lipslut strives to promote feminism and self-expression as they spotlight injustices at large, and the tag of their new lipstick gets right to the point: “50% for charity. 100% against sexual assault.”

Discussion Question
