Just a little teaser… Butter London gets Lippy

Butter London Lippy

Never have I cursed Winter as much as I have this past week.  I got my hands on these samples almost two weeks ago and haven’t been able to do face swatches because of the poor light.  That’s not to say I haven’t worn them, I’m usually meticulous about not breaking into samples before the photos.. but c’mon, you’d have to have nerves of steel to resist these babies.

The formula is consistent throughout the line, and as much as I wanted them to feel like liquid lipsticks, they are indeed lipglosses. They’re not light-textured on the lips and are quite strongly-scented but they’re long-lasting (for gloss) and match almost perfectly with their namesake polishes from Butter London’s regular line.

As for pigment, depending on the shade, these glosses have it by the bucketload but in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get kinda way – you cannot build the pigment, not unless you wanna walk around with jizz lips and gloss strings galore.  Similarly you can’t really sheer these out without them looking patchy although you’ll be pleased to hear that they fade kindly.

Butter London Lippy lipglosses are priced at £13.95 each and available to buy online from powderrooms.com (swatches coming soon)

    JIZZ LIPS? Oh my days.

    (I creased up with laughter)

  3. I love the colors. Are they opaque or sheer? It seems to me that lipglosses need to be sticky to stay put, don’t you think? Lovely pics as always xx

    • Hi Joanne (thank you), pigmentation varies from shade to shade – some are really opaque for the gloss formula, others… not so much. Will demonstrate them individually really soon. x

    The violet and deep red shades look lovely, though I do feel fully warned against not trying to build up that colour now! 😉

  5. Bailey says:

    I tried one when they first came out, but I just couldn’t stomach the scent/taste. If that’s been reformulated, I’d gladly give them another go!

  6. […] of these lipglosses from Butter London a few days ago, if you need reminding – the post is here. Overall, I’m quite torn on them… I’m not a lipgloss fan, so we’re off to a […]
