Beauty Brands and retailers join women’s charity The Eve Appeal to launch GET LIPPY again this May; a campaign inviting everyone to help tackle the taboos around women’s health. In May 2019, GET LIPPY is back with a bang. We’re getting lippier, louder, bigger and better — and we need you to add your voice.
GET LIPPY is about talking openly about gynaecological health, smashing taboos, asking difficult questions and raising money for a good cause. New research shows that women are potentially putting their lives at risk because they don’t have the right language to talk about their bodies with doctors. The Eve Appeal is launching a national campaign to provide women with the right information and confidence to talk clearly about anatomy and symptoms in order to better diagnose key health concerns, including the five gynaecological cancers.
Women’s cancer charity The Eve Appeal have joined forces with lead partners Tesco and Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) along with some of the UK’s leading retail and beauty brands to launch GET LIPPY 2019. The aim of the campaign is to encourage everyone to GET LIPPY– to speak up and out-about women’s health and the early signs and symptoms of gynaecological cancers with embarrassment.
The Eve invites YOU to get involved by buying a lipstick, lip gloss or lip balm from a GET LIPPY partner and “blow a kiss’ by sharing a photo on social media throughout the campaign ( #GetLippy). For every product sold in May, £1 or 10% will be donated to The Eve Appeal medical research programme to fund vital research into early detection and prevention.
Who are The Eve Appeal?
“The Eve Appeal is the only UK national Charity raising awareness and funding research in the five gynaecological cancers ovarian, womb,cerviical,vaginal and vulval. It was set up to save women’s lives by funding ground breaking-research focused on developing effective methods of risk prediction, earlier detection and developing screening for these women only cancers. The world-leading research that we fund is ambitious and challenging but our vision is simple; a future where fewer women develop and more women survive gynaecological cancers.”

Women’s Cancers: The facts about embarrassment & taboos
Every day in the UK, 58 women are Diagnosed with one of the five forms of gynaecological cancer: womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal – affecting more than 21,000 women and their families each year.
Nearly a fifth of women (18%) are worried about seeing their GP about a gynaecological-related health issue.
A third of women don’t see their own gynaecological health issues as being serious enough to warrant visiting their GP or Doctor’s surgery.
Nearly a fifth (19%) of British Women under 35 believe they are too young to develop a gynaecological cancer.
Over a third of women (38%) aged between 46 and 55. Are most likely to ignore gynaecological health symptoms in the hope that they will go away.
When shown a medical drawing of the female reproductive system nearly half (45%) couldn’t locate the vagina, and (60%) the vulva; whilst only 1 in 7 could name a single gynaecological cancer.
Two thirds (67%) of British Women do not know what an endometrium is, despite endometrial cancer (also known as womb cancer) being the fourth most common women’s cancer in the UK.
