This Lipstick Lets You Honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg — and Give Back to Her Favorite Causes
UPDATE: In the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, changemaker and Supreme Court Justice and who passed away Sept. 18, Lipslut has launched a new fundraiser to honor her memory. This week, 100 percent of the proceeds from Notorious RBG Lipstick ($20) — which is on preorder now — will go toward organizations continuing R.B.G.’s fight for justice and equality.
“In the wake of her passing, members of the Lipslut community reached out to share the ways in which R.B.G. inspired them,” founder Katie Sones told POPSUGAR. “After reading their notes, I feel strongly that it’s our responsibility to carry on her legacy. Her fight continues with us.”
Once you get to checkout, you’ll have the option to vote for a charity you’d like to contribute to, including She Should Run, Planned Parenthood, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and the Human Rights Campaign. Once all the preorders are in, the most popular vote will win.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg — Supreme Court Justice and scrunchie icon — has devoted her career to advocating for the rights of women, and in her honor, cosmetics brand Lipslut is celebrating the Justice (by popular demand) with a lipstick shade.
The Notorious R.B.G. lipstick ($20) is a fuchsia shade that donates 50 percent of its profits to a charity that embodies the ideals Ginsburg stands by. Each time you purchase one, you have a chance to vote for which organization you’d like the profits to go toward (a few options are the Equal Rights Advocates and She Should Run, to name a few). The formula is also long-wearing, so it’ll stay put no matter how long it takes to fight the patriarchy. See the hue, below.
