Let’s Kiss Slavery Goodbye!

Slavery? It’s 2013!

Yes, slavery. Yes, sexual slavery in the 21st century. It’s hard to believe it can even exist in these modern times, but unfortunately, it does.

When Radiant Cosmetics contacted me to help spread the word about Kiss Slavery Goodbye, the company’s campaign for Human Trafficking Awareness Month—which is this month—I didn’t even blink an eye before my fingers were typing a resounding YES!

If wearing and talking about a gloriously bright lipstick can help fight sexual slavery and human trafficking, how could I not jump right in? You know how much I love my lippies, and Radiant Cosmetics has some gorgeous ones, plus products for eyes, face, and more.

I was gifted Daphne and Strawberry Fields lipsticks to wear and share in this post, and let me tell you they are vibrant, creamy, and long-lasting! And I’m no easy sell, believe me.

Here I am wearing Daphne, a bold, vibrant pink I loved so much, that I even matched my latest mani as closely to it as I could (Radiant Cosmetics does not produce nail polish, or at least not yet). Yeah, I know have some brow action going. Been growing them out for a year, since big brows are all the rage. Kind of  mad at myself for tweezing as much as I did, but that’s another post.

Remember, in addition to the usual 20% of profits donated, for every lipstick purchased during January 2013, Radiant Cosmetics will donate a lipstick on your behalf to a survivor or current victim of human trafficking. You get a lipstick, and one of our sisters in the world gets one too. Can’t beat that.

    I am a student Minoring in Women’s studies and it is my dream to work for a non-profit organization that deals with human rights and women’s right. I commend this organization for spreading the word about Human trafficking not only over seas, but in America as well in such an innovative way that captures the interest of young girls. However (and I am not slamming the organization, it is an honest question) How does giving a lipstick to a women who has suffered emotional and physical trauma of such epic proportion going to help them in any way? I would like to see half the proceeds being donated to other organizations that help these women get their life back with therapy or any other way.

    Pretty in pink lady!
    Great cause to bring attention to…Human trafficking is serious and honestly not really talked about.
    Taken, the movie, is about the only thing I have ever seen on the subject.

    I disagree with Bri…and not to be argumentative…but I think something as SIMPLE as a luxurious lipstick can make a woman feel empowered and like a “woman” again. Sometimes the little things cause the greatest impact.
