instead of picking out our white pantsuits to cosplay on January 20 and eagerly anticipating the perfectly patriotic shades of red lipstick and nail polish named "Madam President," we woke up to the knowledge that you can treat women like actual garbage in 2016, and that won't stop (almost) a majority of Americans from electing you president. What's a Hillary girl to do? Get up, put on some lipstick and take on the day with one of these pouty hues.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Black Dahlia; $16

This cult favorite is known for its bold and high-intensity colors, and Black Dahlia is perhaps the boldest of all with a deep reddish purple that goes on almost black, like our souls. Feel like showing your displeasure all day? Your pout won't go unnoticed.

NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Bound; $26

I credit the commitment of Alicia Keys to the no-makeup movement for reminding us that we DGAF what nasty old men (who see us as nothing but a number between 1 and 10) think about our looks. But maybe you want a little something on your lips? This luxe-feeling gloss has just enough of a rose shimmer to accentuate that straight line between your lips.

Stila Stay All Day Matte'ificent lipstick in Bonbon; $22

The last thing you want during a busy day of working your butt off while being overlooked in favor of mediocre, unprepared men is for your lipstick to let you down. This formula is designed to last through literally hours of someone mansplaining things at you, with a fun '90s-inspired terra cotta brown hue.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Obsession; $8.99

In a world where the president-elect has confessed to grabbing and kissing women without their consent, wearing an attention-getting hot pink lip is an act of bravery and rebellion. Pair this with an all black outfit (for mourning) and declare that not even four years of Trump will dim your inner beauty and spark.
