Shine Bright Like a Diamond: A True Knight in Shining Armour

I can’t help myself when it comes Armour Beauty. The last time I reviewed them, it was definitely time for me to send it over to Theo, the founder of the rocking lip gloss brand. She loved it! Then, she sent me two new lip glosses, which are as equally beautiful and lovely as the others. However, don’t be fooled by the colors of the tube.

The two glosses I received are Marilyn (clear iridescent) and Kashmir (light pink). Although they may look like the typical colors you see in a drugstore or your old Lip Smackers/Bonnebell glosses, they have extremely different results when you apply in them person.

Marilyn is a beautiful iridescent with fine micro glitters that make the lips pop. What’s cool about the glitter is that it actually changes on the skin – think of it like a mood ring! In the tube, it’s bluish, but on my lips, it made it come out as a pink. The product is extremely similar to Maybelline’s Shine Shot in Prismatic, but this is more subtle. Marilyn goes so well with practically anything thanks to its chameleonic ability to transform! Talk about being a true diamond out there!!

On the other hand, Kashmir is a bit more like a classic pink gloss. The gloss itself has some fine micro glitter, but you really cannot see it. This shade is mean to be a more everyday shade whether it be going to brunch with the ladies, meeting up the parents, going on a first date, work, etc! Man, it even works as a fun Coachella beauty accessory!! I mean, Kashmir is inspired by Led Zeppelin and you cannot go wrong with wanting to pull out that shaggy white Penny Lane coat alongside your favorite distressed vintage jeans that you’ve thrifted a weekend ago. Talk about the ultimate cute girl look without being too basic!

Verdict:Β πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

The formula is an everlasting stay-put gloss. You can re-apply throughout the entire day; however, it doesn’t have to be on its own. Thanks to the sheer texture, you can actually mix it with other glosses or with each other to have a killer 3D lip look. See? Isn’t it worth part of the deal?!

Believe me, you NEED to get this. If you are a Led Zep fan, GO FREAKING GET IT!! No spin around town is complete without “Kashmir”. As for my Monroe-loving gals, just rock ’em proud with diamonds.

Dreamer. Seeker. Achiever. Is there any other word that can't describe me? Born in Jakarta, raised in Singapore and educated in Los Angeles, I was bound to trot around the globe one #ootd at a time. While fashion has been a top interest, I also enjoy pop culture, beauty and traveling. Whether it be a fashion show, DIY-ing the latest catwalk-inspired accessory or going to a music festival, there is nothing that I can ever miss out in life. Hence, #LivinLaVariNaDah is born from the desire to not ever FOMO again!
