Two New Classics: Armour Beauty V Gloss in Audrey + Ardency Inn Easy Ride Eyeliner

Armour Beauty, created by the brilliant Theo Kogan, has a singular specialty: lip gloss.  In a world of brands with expansive product skews and constant seasonal collection releases, this laser sharp focus on one ubiquitous product is refreshing.  I have discussed my love for the line many times over (HEREHERE and HERE) and today I am excited to share the latest from Armour...the *V Gloss in Audrey.  

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of Audrey (as well as the new ARDENCY INN Modster Easy Ride Eyeliner) in action...

Inspired by the humanitarian goodwill and iconic beauty of Audrey Hepburn, the Audrey V gloss is a rich, pigment-saturated rose pink with cool mauve undertones and no shimmer.  The "V" label denotes a few key guarantees including:
  • Ingredients rich in natural oils and butters to moisturize and protect lips...shea butter, avocado, mango seed, olive butters, grape seed oil and Vitamin E.
  • A vanilla/grapefruit scent
  • Vegan, paraben free, gluten free and completely cruelty free distinctions
  • Natural based, long-wearing performance
Although Audrey is a touch darker than shades I usually gravitate towards, I find it to be a refeshingly bright and cheerful.  Paired with a simple cat eye and a gently-bronzed complexion, it works well as the central zone of focus! 

From a formula perspective, the Armour Beauty V Gloss is slightly sticky but all together very manageable...I prefer a bit of tack in my lip glosses; when they are too silky, they tend to slide all over the place, leading to imprecise lines and disappointing lasting power.  Conversely, Audrey's longevity is as impressive as all other Armour Beauty glosses I've experienced.  One swipe creates hydrating, opaque coverage that comfortably lasts for 5-6 hours without touchups!  

If you haven't yet tried Armour Beauty glosses, I implore you to consider doing so...especially if you prefer long lasting opacity as I do.

Bottom Line:  Both the Armour Beauty V Gloss in Audrey and Ardency Inn Modster Easy Ride Eyeliner are lovely additions to my collection due to their versatility, extremely effective performance and individual abilities to create a modern yet classic look.  Have YOU tried anything from either line? Thoughts?

Good things ahead including a hair-centric post, an overview of some of the vitamins/supplements I currently take and new product procurements a plenty! 

Have a beautiful rest of the weekend and please let me know in the comment box how your summer is going thus far...xx,
