Butter London – Bumster NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 20 - 2010

I just wasn’t expecting to like it… but strangely, I do!

Bumster from Butter London’s Autumn/Winter collection is one of those ugly colours that you either love or hate.

It’s one of the two McQueen-inspired shades in the collection, named for the designer’s famously low slung trouser creation that shocked the fashion world at the time. Not a natural nail shade choice for the more conservative among us, it sits oddly against my skintone. However, I simply love how creamy it looks, opaque in only two coats and perfect for the camel trend we’re currently experiencing.

As much as I’m drawn to it, I do have to admit that it looks far, far better on my cousin’s olive-toned skin than it does on my pasty pink complexion.

Will that stop me wearing it? Not a chance… I can’t stop checking out my nails!

Butter London Bumster is available to buy online from Powder Rooms, priced at £9.75

    Wow, such an unusual colour! It looks great on you :)

    I love it, and am tempted to buy it, but I doubt it will suit my skin tone or clothes.

  5. That is one of those colours that you look at in the bottle and think mmmm should I or shouldn’t I? It really is a lovely creamy colour and I would expect it to better on a darker skin tone but it works with yours. I was looking at some paler Barry M colours the other day in Superdrug you have my inspired me to go out of my comfort zone! x
