Pucker up for a good cause

Selena Gomez


Sydney, Australia: Liptember is officially launching this week and experts are calling on Australians to brighten up their pout and use their love of lipstick to help start the conversation about women’s health issues and raise much needed funds for national research and support programs.

To support the cause, get into your local Chemist Warehouse, My Chemist or My Beauty Spot to buy your official Liptember lipstick and encourage friends and family to get involved, by sponsoring you and donating towards the cause.

Many common issues affect Women’s Mental Health including new parenting, anxiety, and depression and relationship troubles. Other forms of psychological disorder can also trigger mental health problems in women.


Why not get everyone you know involved? Run a competition in the workplace or challenge your friends to see who can raise the most money! If coloured lips aren’t your thing, you can still jump on the Liptember website to make a donation. All funds raised are donated to the Centre for Women’s Mental Health and Lifeline.

Get everyone talking and choose from a great range of bright colours across the full spectrum of the rainbow, it’s a quirky and effective way to bring public attention to a significant issue.

Last year Liptember raised more than $800,000 and with Chrissie Swan, Jo Silvagni, Rhiannon Fish and Molly Meldrum on board to support the cause, Liptember is hoping to smash those figures out of the water this year.

Stay connected to the campaign by following Liptember on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and get active on social media by wearing your colourful Liptember lipstick and hashtag your selfie: #liptember
