It's a hard time in America.
With a president who refuses to condemn white supremacists, who calls women pigs and transgender people a "disruption," who perpetuates rape culture with his rhetoric, and is actively trying to defund Planned Parenthood — it is more important than ever that we support each other.
One of the best ways we can combat the threats many marginalized groups in America are facing is with our dollars — and beauty brands are stepping up. Here's a round-up of some boss beauty products you can purchase to stand with PP, donate to the ACLU, support the victims of Charlottesville, and support women's healthcare.
Fuck Trump lipstick by Lip Slut, $20
Lip Slut Fuck trump lipstick ($20, Lip Slut)
Previously donating 50% of its proceeds to a charity of your choice, Lip Slut is now donating 100% of its proceeds to the victims of the Charlottesville terror attack.
The lipstick, aptly named "Fuck Trump," is available in a matte pink shade for only $20, and the packaging is super spot on. Just make sure to type "CHARLOTTESVILLE" at check-out!
Kiss My Pink lipstick by The Lipstick Lobby, $19

Beautiful Rights lip products, $24 each
Beautiful Rights lipsticks and gloss ($24 each, Beautiful Rights)

There are three lip colors you can purchase a rose color named "Pantsuit Pink," a neutral pink named "Politically Pout," and a champagne rose gloss named "Gloss Ceiling." Individually they cost $24 each, but you can get all three for $64.
MAC Viva Glam lipsticks, $17.50 each
MAC Viva Glam lipsticks ($17.50 each, MAC)
MAC Viva Glam line of lipsticks have long been a staple in many of our beauty closets, and you may already know that 100% of the purchase price goes toward the MAC AIDS Fund. Consider this as another reminder to re-stock your collection of the cult classic: MAC remains committed to "addressing the link between poverty and HIV/AIDS by supporting diverse organizations around the world." With Trump's continued attempts to repeal Obamacare, this is an especially important time to support this initiative.
