Armour Beauty is the brainchild of rocker/model and new mommy Theo Kogan. As the singer for bands including the legendary all-female Lunachicks and Theo And The Skyscrapers, Theo is known for her over-the-top makeup styles. She has modeled for Calvin Klein, Burberry and Kenneth Cole (to name a few) and has acted in film, television and continues to perform in avant-garde theater all over the world. A lip gloss that would stay on during a performance was something Theo craved and so she created what she considers the missing piece in the beauty industry.
     Armour Beauty melds high-end fashion with rock-n-roll attitude and is a favorite of Rachel Zoe, Janie Bryant, Karen O, Eva Mendes, Lady Ga Ga, Fergie, Kim Gordon and many more. Armour’s moisturizing formula is long wearing, cruelty free and environmentally friendly, with a beautiful range of colors. Theo is so inspired by music and classic pop culture that she named the glosses after some of her favorite songs, clubs and legendary icons.
Armour Lipgloss
Swatch of After Hours, Barracuda & Ann-Margret
     Alright gals,  I have found a new favorite lipgloss! Seriously, intense pigmentation and long wear without tons of stickiness! I have three of Armour Beauty's lip glosses in the colors After Hours, Barracuda and Ann-Margret! I didn't know what to expect when these arrived, but as soon as I pulled the applicator (pictured below) out of the container I got really excited because I could tell these weren't any flimsy sheer glosses, these were PACKED with pigmentation.
     The doe foot applicator makes it easy to put the products exactly where you want and doesn't take to much out of the tube and makes a mess. I have been wearing these to work and when I go out and this formula has tons of ingredients that make sure your lips don't dry out. They all have a base of Shea Butter, Avocado, Mango, Olive Butters and oils, Grape Seed Oil and Vitamin E! Which is why I don't think these are stick and tacky feeling.

Swatches on my lips:

     Looooook at how amazing the intense color payoff is!  Most of all I love the high shine that these give off. It looks like I put lipstick on and put a clear shiny gloss over it! But nope, all that comes from just one of these Armour Beauty shades!  I'd really love for you girls to try these out, they are very high quality and beautiful colors to choose from.

     Recently I had the chance to try out GIELLA custom blend cosmetics lipstick and lipgloss. I was in for a real treat! "GIELLA does no animal testing, and stands behind its products as the finest quality available in the industry. Our products are all non-comedo genic (non-pore clogging), fragrance free, and allergy free." They have been seen in the high fashion and beauty magazine such as Glamour and Nylon and also worn by many celebrities!
     I got to try two colors of their lipsticks and a gloss. Now before I even begin, they have 70, yes seven zero, shades of lipstick to choose from! 13 are shimmers 10 aromatherapy scents, 4 moisture/matte/antioxidant adds and 3 levels of coverage! They are also 99% pure natural ingredients! What more can a gal ask for besides help picking a color!! Well, you could also use the menu on the right of the site to create your OWN custom blended lipstick! Ahhhh I'm in love. They also match discontinued lipstick:www.giella.com/discontinued.
     In the slideshow above, I show you each lipstick and the lipgloss swatted on my hand and then on my lips.  The lipsticks are heaven. They go on nice and creamy and have a matte finish. I have to say I'm never usually this pleased with neutral matte lipsticks! The color Judy has some kind of amazing coconutty smell to it. I was taken by surprise when I put it on, because I did not expect a scent at all. It's a definite bonus!
     If your looking for a soft non sticky lipgloss then you should take a peek at their lipgloss collection72 colors, 13 shimmers, 10 aromatherapy scents, adds of soy butter, vit E or matte, tube or wand: get artistic and create your own custom blend lip gloss. Use the menus and guides to the lower right. Our lip gloss base is paraben free, silky smooth and so easy to apply. I could create hundreds of colors! I wish there was a store near me where I could play all day! The one I have is in the color Bubbles and is a mauve pink with teeny tiny particles of gold. When applied to my lips it goes on very sheer but can see the hints of gold. Very pretty to wear with anything or even over one of these lipsticks! 

Lipstick and Lipgloss is $28 each
