Jaggr is for pouting, strutting, smack-talking lips. With SPF 15 protection, Kawakawa and Manuka to soothe, Jaggr delivers lips on the improve. Apply a small amount directly to lip region. Reapply throughout the day.
At the core of Triumph & Disaster’s ‘creation story’ there is a now infamous pre-hipster, hipster from circa 2009 downtown New York, a man with a tattooed arm, refined waist coat and slicked back hair who pulled out a lip balm whilst in a meeting about a vodka brand. This quintessential urban lumberjack in many ways was ground zero for Triumph and Disaster, the very essence, the genesis, the original spark of inspiration that has led us all these years later to this very point.
So it is with no small amount of fate and hard work that we find ourselves looking at ‘Jaggr’. Sitting in its matte black aluminium tin, all pristine and shiny, with a gold huia (that rarest of NZ’s rare birds — some might say extinct even given the last official sighting was in 1907, but with unofficial sightings in the 1950’s, 1960’s and even as late as the 80’s, depending on who you believe, we say never give up hope), adorning pride of place at front and centre.
‘Jaggr’ is a play on the man with arguably the most famous lips of all, but also in some small way homage to the fellow in that meeting all those years ago who pulled out a women’s lip balm and applied it with carefree nonchalance, like a famous Jagger pout or prance across stage.
If the eyes are the windows to our soul then our the lips may well be the landing pad. “I wish I had less luscious, less plump, less curvaceous, less soft, sensual lips… said no one ever”. From hot lips Houlihan and rolling stones covers, to the flaming lips and goodnight kiss, nothing really beats a great pair of lips. Jaggr was created to enhance yours, protecting them with the benefits of natural zinc, SPF 15 defence combined with the calming effects of Kawakawa and all round goodness of Manuka oil making Jaggr something of an instant kiwi classic.
