Congratulations to LipRevolt, the February Fueled by Purpose micro grant winner! Founded by Courtney Stewart, LipRevolt is a cosmetics brand built on the belief that womxn can inspire change and look great doing it. It was created for individuals who identify as womxn or gender nonconforming, especially womxn of color, and those who are willing to fight for what they believe in and speak up for others. To demonstrate its commitment to social justice, LipRevolt donates 10 percent of each sale to womxn’s rights organizations and initiatives that support racial equality and the LGBTQ community. Courtney plans to use the grant for inventory and marketing. To learn more about Courtney’s business, visit LipRevolt.com.
