Starface’s New Rainbow Pimple Patches Are Here, And Proceeds Will Support Black & LGBTQ+ Folks

It's the brand's most colorful launch yet.

Thanks to the major beauty minds behind Starface, the act of covering your blemishes has never been so fun. After unveiling bright yellow star-shaped pimple patches, and a special glow-in-the-dark edition, Starface is celebrating Pride Month, releasing its Rainbow Hydro-Stars.

Shipping the week of July 6, but available to preorder now, the colorful variation on a Starface classic retails for $16. A permanent part of the Starface family, this iteration of the Hydro-Stars is going towards a great cause. As the brand announced on Instagram, 100 percent of net proceeds will be allocated to support Black and LGBTQ+ communities.

According to Starface, the exact recipients of profit proceeds include The Hetrick-Martin Institute for LGBTQ + Youth and The Black-Led Movement Fund. "Rainbow is a commitment to protecting and uplifting Black lives and LGBTQ+ lives, now and forever," Starface wrote on its website.

For those that are new to the Starface galaxy, the company first launched with Hydro-Stars, hydrocolloid pimple-protectors that absorb fluid, shield spots from outside bacteria, and prevent skin picking. Vegan and cruelty-free, the stars are hypoallergenic and come in recyclable packaging. Starface later expanded into face wash, releasing its Space Wash.

If you're also conscious of where your beauty bucks are going, other brands, including Glossier, Hero Cosmetics, and Manic Panic have announced similar acts of support for the Black Lives Matter movement. While some brands have given directly to Black organizations, others have announced specific products and dates that allocate proceeds towards charity.
