Butter London Minger NOTD (it’s not for mingers)

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 22 - 2012

I was a little bit traumatised at the sight of this shade when I pulled it out of the bag.  I mean, it’s orange.  A proper pumpkin-esque shade that I would imagine to work best on olive skintones.  Boy, was I wrong.  This is pretty much the only orange in the world that I can wear without looking like a try-hard.

It still has the vibrancy that you might want from this kind of shade but it has a subdued edge and a beautiful autumnal vibe that complements rather than screams at pink-toned skin.  A certain dusty quality that I’ve always loved in my purple shades, translating terrifically to something I’d least expect.  Opaque in a couple of coats, creamy and warm.  Lovely.

The bad news is?  It’s being discontinued so don’t expect to be able to find it once Autumn rolls around again.

Butter London Minger is priced at £11.95 and available to buy online from PowderRooms

    I am a woman that loves orange but this isn’t doing it for me.
    Perhaps because in this season we’re surrounded by other colours that work for now, or perhaps it’s just too Halloween-y.
    It does seem silly that they are discontinueing it before the correct time of year for this shade.

    As always, your nails look perfect.

    WOW… I am a huge Butter London fan and I’ve just clicked on all your past posts on their polishes. This is a lovely pumpkin orange shade indeed…I like corals but never been brave enough to do all out orange but this one seems quite forgiving…

    This looks lovely on you but I agree with Sydney that it reminds me of Autumn and Halloween. I’m all for bright, retina-seering oranges this season though or paler pastel ones.
