Even us fashion and beauty bloggers are not immune to Palinmania, it appears: mineral makeup line Alchemy of Colour has debuted Power Pink lipstick ($20), a shade that’s supposed to mimic the one Sarah Palin wears. The company is donating $1 from each sale to the McCain-Palin campaign.
The company’s developer says, “This powerful shade of pink celebrates the many faces of women as girlfriends, wives, mothers, entrepreneurs, corporate executives and even vice presidents.”
Sometimes I feel like nobody stops and asks herself, “does the content of this press release make sense?”
We think women are awesome. We think hardworking female entrepreneurs and execs deserve our support. But how, oh how in the world does a color of lipstick celebrate women’s diverse and simultaneous and vital roles?!
If you’re into slightly eighties lipstick and supporting the McCain-Palin campaign, visit Alchemy of Colour. If you want a more modern color that comes with a good (non-partisan) cause, check out Balmshell’s 1 in 8 Lip Gloss ($22).
Balmshell also donates $1 of each sale, but to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
