Liptember was founded in 2010 and in those years has become a well-known nationwide fundraiser
Its easy to take part, participants can purchase a Liptember lipstick from any Chemist Warehouse, My Chemist or My Beauty Spot store.

Liptember founder Luke Morris is incredibly proud $2 million was raised last year during the 2019 campaign to support women's mental health and hopes to top that in 2020.
"Now more than ever, it is so important to be supporting women's mental health and we are thrilled to be partnering with six diverse organisations and programs which will allow Liptember to make a greater impact on the mental health of women across Australia," Mr Morris said.
