About The Lipstick Project

The Lipstick Project

Fact: being in the hospital sucks. Some part of you hurts like hell. You smell. You haven’t showered in a week. You pee in a bucket. You breathe recycled air. Your arms resemble a pincushion. Your nails are chipping and your eyebrows need waxing.

The Lipstick Project was founded to enhance the healing process by acknowledging that manicures can be medicinal. They work in partnership with hospitals and hospices to bring a quintessential spa experience to patients who are either in recovery or who are peacefully approaching the end of their life. .

Supported by Simon Fraser University’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement
