Butter London Crumpet NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 26 - 2014

Have you seen the square crumpets that Asda do? Oh my… they’re huge and fill the toaster to the edges…crying out for a slathering of butter, jam, nutella or whatever gets your taste buds excited in the morning!

I can’t have them at the moment because anything that tastes deliciously carby in the mornings makes my obstetrician shake his head at me.  And so, instead of a hot, buttery treat… I’ll have to make do with this tasty morsel of another kind…

Butter London’s Crumpet was released last year as part of the brand’s Starkers collection, a trio of nudes to suit most skintones.  Of the three, crumpet is the middle-toned shade… and as you can see, looks fairly happy sitting against my uber-cool skintone.

The brand describe this one as a “warm caramel creme” and it’s opaque in a couple of coats.  I find wear to be pretty standard throughout the Butter London range and I easily get 5-days before the tip wear begins to appear.  Of course, with shades such as these, this isn’t hugely noticeable even when it does set in.

Butter London Crumpet is priced at £11.95 and available to buy online from powderrooms.com

    Mmmm, I love crumpets so much!! All hot and drippy with marg and jam, PB or vegemite…closely followed by English breakfast muffins in the hot and toasty stakes. OK now I’m hungry for crumpets! Even that nail polish is looking pretty delish right now ;)

    Ooh yeah, I like the look of this polish a lot. It’s hella difficult to get beige nude polishes that compliment my ultra fair cool toned skin without giving me dead-looking fingers, so I’ll have to track this baby down and take it for a spin.
