Update: On Tuesday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made history as the youngest woman to be elected to Congress. Back in June, she won the Democratic primary — and impressed everyone with her bold red lipstick, which she later identified as Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso ($22).
No word yet on whether her historic win has boosted sales in the same way it did a few months ago, but if it was close to selling out before — we have a feeling it'll be flying off shelves in no time.

On June 26, 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old candidate for New York's 14th Congressional District, defeated 10-term incumbent Representative Joseph Crowley. Many are calling the election a shocking political upset; if the Bronx-born Latina woman beats Republican candidate Anthony Pappas in the November midterm, she'll be the youngest woman ever elected to the House of Representatives. We're still not over the candidate's impressive victory, but Twitter added just one more reason to root for Ocasio-Cortez: her lipstick of choice. The candidate just revealed the exact lipstick shade she wore to the Democratic Primary Debate, and it's a classic power red with historical significance.
I have been getting many inquiries about my debate lip color in the last two days.
I GOT YOU.
It's Stila "Stay All Day" Liquid in Beso.
