I have a lot of Butter London polishes that I've bought over the years. I love the, well, buttery, formula, the fun colors, and the square packaging. But I hadn't really delved into their new cosmetics line much. So, when Butter London offered to send me a few things to try, I was cautiously optimistic - could they live up to the love I had for the nail polish?
I have to admit, I am attracted to the packaging of the Butter London Iconoclast mascara. The substantial feel of it, the black and silver color scheme, and the slightly flared tube all signal to me that something unique is coming my way.
Butter London's Wink eyeliner pencils are thick and creamy, which is good news for my old eyes. I can't take pencils that tug, or that can't handle covering a little crepey-ness in my eyelids. Union Jack Black is their glossy jet-black.
Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon in Ladybird is an enigma wrapped in a riddle. Is it red? Is it orange? Is it both? When I first tried it on, it read as a neon-bright orange color. On a different day, it picked up some red tones, but is still very orange. On the website, it's listed as a tomato-red.
Ladybird, is more of a tomato-red on me. Juicy! Great shine. It looked opaque with 2 coats in Real Life, though the picture shows a little VNL. I thought it would be fun to do a little 'ladybird' nail art to go with it!
