If you think using natural beauty products limits you to nude lipstick and barely-there pigment, think again.
In search of trendy, bold, but natural-based makeup I found Armour Beauty, a dedicated lip gloss line featuring 23 high-pigment colors. Armour glosses are paraben-free and packed with amazing ingredients like shea butter, avocado oil, and vitamin E. The best part is that they perform as good as they feel and look. These are by far the longest wearing natural lip products I have in my collection.
There are 3 lines of Armour lip glosses: Shimmer Collection, Opaque Collection, and Armour V, a vegan and gluten-free collection. I tried one gloss from each line. Be sure to check the slideshow for swatches!
Divine (Opaque): Armour may specialize in bold colors, but they cater to all makeup tastes with a gloss like Divine. This milky pink is perfect for everyday and goes with just about any makeup look. It’s completely neutral in undertone so whether you’re a fair, pink-toned porcelain princess or a golden bronze goddess – you’ll look gorgeous in this color.
Hi-Way Star (Armour V): This intense purple is such a unique addition to anyone’s lip assortment. It’s a head-turner in all the right ways. It’s completely opaque on the first swipe. The quality of this gloss really blows my mind. Other lip products I own which claim to be “opaque” take at least 2 or 3 layers to reach the desired effect. Hi-Way Star’s pigmentation is wonderful, and it really is a stunning color on the lips. Don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone with this one. I have fair skin and dark hair and love the way this looks on me.
Grace (Shimmer): As always, I saved my favorite for last. Grace is a dazzling purple-pink with a blue undertone (which makes teeth look extra white!) The shift in this color adds interest and makes my lips look plump. I pair it with colorful eyeshadow looks and also with neutral cat-eye looks. It looks lovely with anything, which is impressive considering how daring the color is. The shimmer is subtle and there are no chunky glitter particles. This is the color I am wearing in the last slideshow photo.
Armour lip glosses are $21 and absolutely worth discovering. The quality is unbeatable. I’m so happy to have a fashion-forward lip option while still using only the best ingredients on my lips. I can’t wait to add more colors to my Armour arsenal! Which ones will you be trying? Let me know, or feel free to ask me any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
