Im sure everyone already knows by now how great butter London’s nail polish line is, but they also have been creating some pretty awesome makeup lately and I have a few new things to share with you!
Their next generation color cosmetics consists of the on trend look of bold eyes, the lacquer like shine of statement lips and of course perfectly polished nails. I honestly don’t wear much in the way of jewelry (I think I own 10 pieces all together!) I tend to wear my makeup as a fashion statement and to me, my bold lips and polished nails are my “bling.”
Lets go over what they sent:
♥ Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara– “Delivers a 300% increase in volume with one coat, boozing lashes with our double feature, molded mascara brush.” This mascara has a very interesting shaped wand! The opening to the tube is small, so you have to pull with a little bit of force to get it out. This does help with minimizing the amount of clumps on the wand which is nice. Synthetic wands aren’t may favorite and this one is a little bit “pokey”. I wouldn’t say it delivers 300% more volume, it gives me more separated/lengthened lashes more than anything. 1-2 coats is sufficient and it does last all day without flaking or smudging which is great.
♥ Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon in Ladybird– “An all-in-one formula of highly pigmented color and the intense shine of a gloss.” This lip crayon is flippin’ awesome! The color is so saturated and creamy and it glides on effortlessly. Ladybird is a warm fiery red that is PERFECT for summer, I can’t get enough! It lasted a good 6 hours and when I wiped it off I noticed tiny flecks of shimmer, but it isn’t really noticeable on the lips. Also, this lippie comes with a genius built in sharpener, so you will never have a dull tip! #bloodybrilliant
♥ Wink Eye Pencil in Union Jack Black– “Delivers options to play and discover the right style.” What I think they mean by that statement is that the liner doesn’t set right away so its easy to adjust or fix mistakes. The liner wasn’t incredibly black and applied somewhat patchy on my eyes. Also, after wearing it for an hour or so, I noticed that it transferred to the top of my hooded eyelid (which isn’t a good look.) I tried to clean it up and then put setting powder on my somewhat oily lid, but it happened again. I just don’t think this is the right formula for me.
♥ Nail Lacquer in Ladybird– “Makes a statement on your hands as well as your lips.” This is the same gorgeous fiery warm red as the lip crayon and it is gorgeous! I used 2 coats and it looked great and it lasted me about 3 days without any chips which is good for me, because I usually get chips after a day or 2.
I throughly enjoyed these new makeup products (with the exception of maybe the liner) and I will be hunting down more shades of that Lip Crayon for sure! Also, Butter London was SO generous and sent doubles of everything, so I am going to be giving one of my readers a chance to win this set so you too can “Shine out loud”!
