If I could have just one beauty pioneer at my dream dinner table, Elizabeth Arden would be at the head.

I’ve always admired her gumption and dynamic attitude to life and business. Any woman who ignores all social norms and does her own thing is a winner in my book. The fact that she loved makeup and horses doesn’t hurt, either.

I’m sure she would have quite a lot to say about the current state of affairs in the US, especially considering who is head of her Republican party. As a strong supporter of women’s rights, Elizabeth gave out red lipsticks to suffragettes marching on Fifth Avenue in 1912. The red lip remains a female sign of strength over 100 years later.

Inspired by this, Elizabeth Arden and their Storyteller-in -Chief, Reese Witherspoon, have created a limited edition March On Red Door Red lipstick to celebrate and support women around the world. In partnership with UN Women, an organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women globally.

100% of the proceeds of the sale of the March On limited edition lipsticks will be donated to the organization. With the launch of the lipstick, Elizabeth Arden invites women around the world to signal their support for one another.
