I love lip products, all KINDS of lip products – glosses, sticks, balms and Lip Tars! I’ve been obsessed with lippies since I was a kid, rockin’ the Bubble Gum and Dr. Pepper-scented Bonnie Bell Lip Smackers.

If I had to discuss my favorite from each category/type of lippie, I could probably name favorites. It’d be hard, but I’ve tried enough to know what works for me.

Among lip glosses, Armour Beauty would be in my top five list, if not at the very top. Armour Beauty is a brand focused on lip glosses, which I’ve reviewed in the past here. Founded in 2009, the brand has taken a new step forward by launching Armour V, its first vegan lip gloss called Brigette.

Brigette looks, from the outside, like any other one of the 25 lip glosses from Armour Beauty. But her formula is vegan, paraben-free, gluten-free and cruelty-free. She has a light, vanilla/grapefruit scent. I barely smell the grapefruit when I use it, I just smell the sweet vanilla.

Like her non-Vegan sister glosses, Brigette has a doe foot applicator:

Excuse the red on my lips, where I was biting down on my lip out of stress!

Brigette is a beautiful peach with pink pearl and golden shimmer, and named after Brigette Bardot, who was not only known for her beauty, but her animal rights activism, according to the Armour website. Here’s what it looks like, full face shot:

Brigette is available on the Armour Beauty site, here, 6.5 ml for $21.

I can’t say enough about these glosses, including Brigette. Yes, they are on the tacky side, and I generally don’t like tacky glosses. But it doesn’t suffocate my lips or make me feel like I’ve got goo on. The color and the gloss stay for hours. I stocked up on about five or six new Armour lip glosses at The Makeup Show New York last month, which brings my total owned to about 12 and I honestly want to collect the remaining 14 I don’t have!!!

I hope we see more Armour V shades, as well as regular Armour Beauty shades.

Have you heard of Armour Beauty? Have you tried them yet? Are you intrigued to try them?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    Beautiful on you! I have never tried this brand before and I am a lippie junkie so bad! May just have to change that. Great post, thank you :)
