FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Apr. 03 /CSRwire/ - Formula Z Cosmetics is proud to launch its newest lipcolor, Mission Z, to benefit The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention to LGBTQ young people ages 13-24.

Founded by Zach Dishinger, the 16 year old makeup artist, entrepreneur and advocate, Formula Z is committed to diversity, inclusion and the pursuit of equality. At the heart of Formula Z is a deep belief that makeup is empowering and a form of self-expression for everyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or race.

Mission Z is a moisturizing, long-wearing, matte lipcolor in a soft, neutral mauve color. For every Mission Z lipcolor sold, Formula Z Cosmetics will donate 50% of the net proceeds to The Trevor Project. As with all of Formula Z’s Forever Lips products, Mission Z is 100% vegan and cruelty, paraben and gluten-free.

“As a company with purpose, it’s vitally important to me to make a difference in the lives of others. I’ve experienced intolerance and bullying first hand, and personally understand the significance of supporting and enabling a culture of acceptance. From the moment I heard about The Trevor Project’s life-saving work, I knew we had to get involved,” said Zach Dishinger, CEO and founder of Formula Z Cosmetics.

“This relationship marks the first time The Trevor Project has partnered with a brand founded and led by a LGBTQ youth," said Calvin Stowell, Chief Growth Officer, The Trevor Project. “We’re excited to partner with Formula Z Cosmetics and Zach, an ambassador for the LGBTQ community who shares our values of acceptance, tolerance, and equality.”

Mission Z is available for $18 at
