Activist cosmetics company Lipslut has just released a new lipstick shade called “F*ck Kavanaugh” in protest against attorney and jurist Brett Kavanaugh accused of sexual assault.
Lipslut is the same company that produced the neutral pink “F*ck Trump” lipstick, which was able to donate $40,000 to the Charlottesville riot victims in 2017.
According to the company, the matte red liquid “F*ck Kavanaugh” lipstick is cruelty-free and 100% vegan.
In an interview with Refinery29, Lipslut founder Katie Sones said that the cool-toned maroon hue was inspired by watching Kavanaugh’s hot headedness during the hearings.
In opposition to the beer-loving, calendar-keeping, judge nominee, “we thought a ‘calm, cool, and collected’ shade would be fitting,” she explained.
“If the highest levels of government won’t listen to us, who will? To me, this entire mess serves as a microcosm for how thousands of women’s experiences and traumas are treated everyday—we had to act.”
All of the proceeds from the lipstick’s sales will be donated to anti-sexual assault organizations.
This is the fourth political lipstick Lipslut has come out with since it was founded by California-based then-college junior Sones in 2017.
Aside from F*ck Kavanaugh and F*ck Trump, the brand also released a F*ck Hollywood true red shade, which donated 50% of proceeds also to anti-sexual assault organizations following the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
