Armour Beauty Profile

Bella Brand: Armour Beauty

In addition to model, writer, performer, and former member of all-female band The Lunachicks, Theo Kogan can now add "beauty entrepreneur" to her resume (assuming that total rock stars have resumes). Kogan teamed up with another woman of many trades, makeup artist/ accessory designer Allison Burns, to launch Armour Beauty, a 14-piece collection of lip glosses that include natural ingredients like avocado oil and mango butter.

"The thing that's been missing are great colors that are moisturizing and protecting and stay on," she says. "Other natural [beauty] products fall off your face, and the colors are too hippie. We also felt like there was not a line that could sit next to Chanel and Givenchy but had a rock persona."

To find out how she wears her black gloss,


Lately, Kogan has been wearing Armour's black gloss, Femme Fatale, with a drop of Edie, a beige, in the middle of her lower lip. Seven of the shades are matte or opaque, while the other seven have shimmer (she promises "they're not sandy").

Aside from touring the world and often doing her stage makeup herself, Kogan's expertise comes from a lifelong obsession with beauty. "My friend got me this makeup at a 99 cent store, like out of a kit for kids, and it's the sickest bubble gum pink ever. It's really sticky so it wears really well. If you really love makeup, you're always looking for stuff." You heard her — go look.

those lip glosses are so pretty! I've never tied this brand though, so I'll have to wait and see or try to find it for a little cheaper - $19 is a bit much for lip gloss, especially since I hardly ever use it...

They look nice, but nothing new or exciting...just your average lip gloss, I'd say.

I'm such a sucker for nice packaging, and I love the font! Eeps! $19 is too steep for me!

Wow, here's a random trip down memory lane! This is a band I used to see play live years ago. They were really great live but on CD they sounded kind of bad. However, their live shows were fun.
