Caitlyn Jenner and MAC have teamed up to launch a lipstick to help raise money for transgender causes.
I think it is fantastic that Caitlyn is making the most out of her new found fame (as Caitlyn not Bruce). The colour is in Caitlyns signatur shade in rosy dark nude and it will be sold exclusively on maccosmetics.com from April 7 and 100% of the sales will got to the MAC AIDS Fund Transgender. That works to support the transgender community and lives.
The lipstick is called Finally Free which represent Caitlyn and her long struggle very well.
From a personal point of view I was very shocked about the transition since I watched Keeping up with the Kardashians from the start in 2007. I understand her long journey but I do not think it was fair to marry 3 different women and have children with them, fool them for soooo many years and then suddenly come out of nowhere and say “I wanted to be a women since I was 5 years old”. I can not imagine how Kris Jenner must have felt and still feel about spending 23 years with somebody and then getting a shock like this. Kris have handled the situation in the public eye so gracefully and with much more dignity than most people would.
But back to the lipstick and Jenner. In a interview with Sarah Brown (Vogue’s beauty editor) she shares that MAC first approached Caitlyn to see if a collaboration would be possible. Caitlyn responded to MAC and asked if it was possible to do something from the trans-community. And when Caitlyn Jenner asks you to work with her to help raise money for the cause, well, who could possibly say no?
Of her color choice, Jenner says, “I wanted a lipstick that would be universal, suited to more people, and was an everyday lipstick, not just a high-glam, once-in-a-while kind of lipstick. I like a little color on my lips, not a lot during the day, and this body nude is the color I’ve gone to.” Plus, she added, “I want people to use it every day so they have to buy more. I want to raise a lot of money. It’s very simple.”
