If you’re anything like me, you love a solid, red lip. But, if your beauty standards are both vegan and cruelty-free (as they should be, loves), the road to a vampy crimson lip can be riddled with despair and carmine. Enter Aromi Beauty. I met the darling Hannah, Aromi’s founder, at a Chicago craft fair last year and immediately knew we were soul mates. Perhaps it’s because we’re both blonde and bespectacled (as some of the best women are).
Perhaps it’s because she was manning the cutest booth in the place. Perhaps it’s because when I said I’m a cruelty-free, vegan blogger, she and I practically wept, embraced, and became non-sexual life partners. Sometimes people just get you.
Get to Know Aromi
So, why is Aromi so special? For one – performance. Aromi’s liquid lipsticks are by far the best indelible lip colors I’ve ever used IN MY LIFE. And when I like a product, oh dear Jeebus, I hold on to it, I pimp it out, I tell the world about it. I’ve raved about these lip colors on Refinery29, I shamelessly promoted them to sweet, sweet Mayim Bialik when I interviewed her this week, and much like a manic street preacher (isn’t that a band?), I talk these up to pretty much anyone else who will listen. And the listening happens easily because every single time I wear Aromi liquid lipstick, people ask me what I’m wearing and OMG how can they get some?
These are not for the meek. These colors are big and bright and bold. Heavily pigmented in the best way possible, these lip colors are a pinup’s dream. My favorites? Preppy Red is my go-to for a wildly sexy red lip, while Rich Rosewood is the perfectly mysterious color that makes your lips look like two velvety berry rose petals. Oh, and the Electric Orchid? Totally wearable color of the season.
Here’s a pic of me (the pale apparition in the middle, kids) wearing Preppy Red on a rare night at a club (when Miley Cyrus showed up). Just gaze at it and behold the hypnotic, vampifying powers of the Aromi:
Unlike a lot of long-wearing lip creams, these are actually comfortable and reliable. Comfy meaning that your lips won’t feel like a desert. Reliable meaning that it won’t ball up on you (you just have to apply on very dry lips) and leave creepy stuff on your teeth during that hot date.
Aromi makes other incredible products, too. The lipsticks are creamy, heavenly goodness. The perfumes smell awesome. The eyeshadows are mineral-based and bold. The packaging is really pretty and worth gazing at for hours.
