If you’ve been looking for a stylish yet powerful way to show off your feminist pride (for International Women’s Day and beyond), you can easily do so with the help of Beautiful Rights, a chic cosmetics collection that supports women’s rights.The line was founded by makeup artist and product developer Kristen Therese Leonard, who wanted to create a line of products that empower and encourage women to continue the fight for their equality.
To honor that commitment, 20 percent of Beautiful Rights sales are donated to organizations that support women and human rights. Shoppers are given the opportunity to choose from organizations like Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Emily’s List, Lambda Legal, and Legal Momentum. The donation amount of 20 percent is also more than just a number. That statistic is representative of the gender wage gap: women are still making 20 percent less than men for doing the same jobs.
So far, the Beautiful Rights collection features three powerful lip essentials: “Gloss Ceiling,” a shimmering nude lip gloss; “Pantsuit Pink,” a rich berry lipstick; and “Politically Pout,” a creamy peach hue. You can purchase each product individually or snag them in a set fittingly titled “Stronger Together.” Each product is outfitted in sleek packaging featuring “fractured glass” art to symbolize how much women have already broken the glass ceiling. Gals of all skin tones can also expect flattering color payoff with each lipstick, as the three hues are incredibly universal.
Snapping up one (or all) of these gorgeous products is the prettiest way to show off your nasty woman pride while giving back to causes close to your heart. We’ll definitely be rocking these colors all March long for Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, but you can snag the feminist collection for yourself now at BeautifulRights.com.
