An Indication of the Trouble Ahead: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Lipstick-Style Sells Out



I am telling you Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is going to be a major influencer.

CBS reports:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old who defeated powerful Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in a New York congressional primary this week, could become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress if she wins in November. In addition to inspiring other young political activists with her victory, she's also inspiring some with her signature look.

On June 15, Ocasio-Cortez wore her distinctive red lipstick during a debate with Crowley, and when her Twitter followers asked her to name the shade, she delivered the details with an emphatic "I GOT YOU" and a lipstick emoji.

The color -- Stila's "Stay All Day" liquid lipstick in a shade called Besos -- has since sold out on multiple websites, as first reported by Quartz. As of Friday afternoon, the $22 product remained sold out on Sephora's website, but seemed to be restocked on Stila's website and on Ulta.com.
Note: This sellout occurred before the election which has propelled her new national coverage. It is an indication of the powerful following she is developing.

  1. 200 pound hog beasts think that matching her lipstick color is going to make them more appealing to look at rather than shedding sixty pounds; and these people vote.

  2. Well I hope, for their sake, she doesn't succeed. Because there's no way they'll get that lipstick under socialism. How many stores in Venezuela carry this product?

    If she succeeds, they will be lucky to be able to find the odd cochineal beetle on their black-market nopales that they can smush up and smear on their lips.

  3. Everyone wants to be a Socialist. Just no one wants to live like a Socialist. Unless of course they get to be the ones at the top calling the shots and living like kings.
