“Try the Lipstick That Sparked a Movement to Get Colorful & Help Good Causes”

You can never have too many lipsticks, especially when they are for a good cause… enter, Color the World Lipsticks. Color the World was started by Stephen and Wayne, two internet start-up brothers who decided to team up with a corporate girl, Stephanie (Stephen’s wife), whose love for makeup helped bring the idea together. She wanted to make people, herself included, smile more.

The collaboration from this team of three led them to open Color the World – an all natural, vegan/cruelty-free, hand poured artisan lipstick shop and website. The best part? Every lipstick connects to a cause they support and actively promote.


When you buy a tube of lipstick at Color the World, you are helping out a cause. Each lipstick color is exclusive to a different charity with 30% of profits from each tube sold going to a specific cause. Charities like the Alzheimer’s Association, Feeding America, Forever Home Rescue Foundation, Homes For Our Troops, Make A Wish Foundation, and Saint Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, are just a few.

The Product

Each lipstick is all natural, vegan/cruelty-free, and hand poured. It doesn’t get much better than that! They go on smooth and do not dry out your lips. They also are long-lasting and do not come off splotchy or on your teeth – I know from experience. :-*

They also have an all-natural lip treatment that you can wear during the day to give your lips moisture or at night to rejuvenate them.

Right now, Color The World only carries lipsticks, but they are in the process of developing more products, so stay tuned…

Visit Color The World at 1809 Glenwood Ave

Located in the heart of Five Points, next to Lilly’s Pizza and The Third Place, you will find their charming shop. My favorite time to stop by is Saturday mornings after I grab coffee. The store may be small, but it is absolutely adorable. Unique containers that hold the lipsticks line the front of the store. In the middle, they have a station where you can test out each of the colors. The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the product. They helped me pick out my perfect shade for summer, Surfberry, and I have been using it nonstop.

Shop Online

If you don’t have time to make it over to the store, you can shop online at ColorTheWorldLipsticks.com. They also have great bundle packs online only where you can get multiple colors at a discounted price. Which is great, because… let’s face it, it will be too hard to only pick one!
