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.

How To Date Someone Who Is Not Your Physical 'Type'

I, like so many other people, have often struggled with the idea of dating people who aren’t my type. It’s not that I’m not open to dating someone I’m not attracted to, it’s really just a matter of how? How do you reject everything you know and give something new a chance? Especially when it seems that we’re not authentically attracted to “something new” because it is oftentimes so different from who we’d usually pursue. Admittedly, attraction can be superficial upon meeting anyone considering all you see are looks. However, shouldn’t you be able to enjoy your person physically in addition to all of the other stuff?

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
