Election day is here and while it's set to be an emotional day (check out our guide on how to cope with election anxiety (opens in new tab)), there is some good news.
Beauty brand Lipslut (opens in new tab) are pledging to donate 100 percent of earnings from their brilliantly titled F*ck Trump collection to organizations fighting for voter’s rights up until the close of the day (get in there fast!).
To date, they have donated over $200,000 towards women’s issues from sales of their gorgeously matte lipsticks so it’s your last chance to get in on the action and help make a difference. The F*ck Trump collection consists of slick shades that’ll upgrade your look in an instant, each with a witty title to match.
Brilliantly bright ‘Locker Room Talk’ is a statement red shade that slides on with ease before drying down to a bold matte finish.
Let's finish strong! From now through Election Day, 100% of earnings from the F*ck Trump collection will be donated to organizations fighting for voters' rights. Select "ELECTION 2020" when adding to your cart. Lipslut (opens in new tab)

Deeply rich Fuchsia shade ‘Fake News’ literally looks good on anyone. If you’re wary of going too bold, this is the shade to try - it's not too OTT but gives a good wash of colour.

Katie Sones, founder of Lipslut believes in changing the world one face at a time, coming up with the idea for the brand on the night of Trump’s inauguration, back in 2017. She’s gone on to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of women's organizations worldwide, believing "beauty can empower people to fight the issues affecting their communities through everyday purchases".
So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t already voted, stick on your fave lip shade and hit the polling stations.
