The Lip Bar's Latest Release Reminds Us That Being A Mama Is Hot

Beauty & Fashion

Mother's Day is a special time of year when we take a moment to celebrate the women that have molded us into who we are today. With that idea in mind, The Lip Bar not only released a new "fire engine red" lip color called "Hot Mama," but crafted a campaign around young women celebrating the beauty of motherhood.


According to a statement The Lip Bar revealed that "Hot Mama is an ode to motherhood and a celebration of one of the most impactful roles a woman can have, being a mother. The color red has often been identified with 'power' and we salute and intend to further solidify the power that lies within each woman who has given life."

The Hot Mama campaign features real-life mamas Adrienne, Jordan, Lauren, Desire, and Tasneem rocking the bold lippie in motherhood power stances.

In her portrait, Jordan can be seen breastfeeding her infant son Micah in bantu knots and full glam. The new mom shared, "I just got back to work and I've noticed that if I look good I feel good. So I make sure to make time in the morning to put on a little makeup, a power lip, and mascara, before I leave to drop the little one off at daycare. It provides me with some 'me time' (even though it's only about 5 minutes) and carries me for the rest of the day."

This release is a perfect match for the beauty brand as motherhood is embraced in different sizes, shades, and forms.

Desire, who also starred in the Hot Mama campaign, was pregnant at the time and shared that for her motherhood began in that instant. "I became a mom when I learned that I was pregnant. I say that because immediately my mind started thinking through and adjusting for all of the ways I needed to make space in my life and lifestyle for my baby. From thinking about what I could and couldn't eat to even beliefs I had about parenting, my mind immediately went into preparation mode. I had 39 weeks to adjust and ready myself and my environment, but I definitely consider the day I learned I was pregnant as the day I became a mom," she told the beauty brand.

The visuals are not only striking but challenge the stigmas around public breastfeed (which was finally made legal in all 50 states in 2018) and showcases the diversity of motherhood because it's not one size fits all. And being a mom doesn't mean you can't embrace things that make you feel both powerful and sexy, including a poppin' red lip.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
