butter LONDON Rock Your Colour Makeup Review: Part One

press sample

Good morning everyone! butter LONDON is launching a new product line today: Rock Your Colour. It consists of 5 new lacquers, and a range of eyeshadows, cream blushes, mascaras, eyeliners, lippys, and lippy balms. butter LONDON kindly provided to me, for review,  some of each from the new line. This morning’s post will feature a bolder look that I did with some of the makeup, and this afternoon’s post will feature a more neutral look that I did with the rest of the makeup. All products used on my face are butter LONDON, except for: bb cream and powder, eyebrow gel & powder.

Let’s start off with the eyeshadow. I received “Inky Six” wink cream eye shadow. This is in a circular tube that’s much like other brands’ mascara tubes. It has a doe-foot applicator. butter LONDON calls this a baby blue shimmer, but in certain lights, it looks like it has a greenish hue to it, in other lights, it looks definitely blue. It also depends on how much you use. I did find that with 2 coats of eyeshadow that my eyelids looked pretty crepey and wrinkly. Not fun. 😦 But, this eyeshadow did not budge AT ALL throughout the day, even though the days I used it, the temperature was over 90 degrees. The eyeshadow is $18.

For this morning’s post, I used the applicator messily all over my eyelid, then blended with my fingers. I then waited for that to dry, and applied more just on my lower eyelid, for brighter color.

For eyeliner, I used Inky Six wink eye pencil, described as a cornflower blue shimmer. It does look a bit purple in some lights. This is a creamy and smooth eye pencil. No problems with application! The eye pencil is also $18.

To finish off my eyes, I used Inky Six Wink Colour Mascara. This is also described as a cornflower blue shimmer. I needed a few coats of mascara to coat the lashes adequately. I did notice throughout the day that the mascara flaked a bit, and cleaning it off, it flaked even more. The mascara is $20.

For blush, I was sent the cheeky cream blush in Honey Pie. Luckily as a redhead, I can pull off a lot of different colors of blush – but this was a perfect color for me, I think. Honey Pie is described as a peach-pink color. Application was smooth and easy. The cream blush is $20.

Lastly, for this morning’s look, I’ve used Lippy in Dandy Bubbles, with a swipe of Lippy Tinted Balm in Abbey Rose over the top.

Dandy Bubbles has a brush applicator. This was thick and sticky lip gloss. The color is described as a sheer nude – and it is. But on my lips, it was the perfect nude color – not beige and not too sheer. Lippys are $20.

Abbey Rose is a lippy tinted balm. It isn’t really a lipstick, though it looks like it. It feels like lip balm, but the color coverage is much more enhanced. The color is described as a rose cream. Lippy tinted balms are $20.

Alright, here’s the complete look. Remember that I was going for a bolder look. This wouldn’t be a look for everyday wear, for me at least.

Let me know what you think of the makeup I’ve used this morning. For me, the stand-outs are Honey Pie Cheeky Cream Blush, and Abbey Rose Lippy Tinted Balm. Don’t forget to check out my review of Inky Six nail lacquer from yesterday.

You can purchase the Rock Your Colour collection at butterLONDON.com or through Ulta.com. I’ll have a more neutral look up later today. Until then,

  1. I love the lip balm. It looks gorgeous on you! Thanks a lot for the review (and sorry for my English). Greetings to Montana from Germany! Charlotte

  3. I checked out the line. I think I like the shadow in Jaded Jack the best. The Lippy tinted balms are RIGHT up my alley, though. That’s exactly the sort of lip product I’ve been into lately. I just can’t get over how well you pull off the bright blue mascara. The blush and gloss compliment your complexion perfectly. It looks so fresh and dewy.

    • You’ve made me blush here, lady! ❤ Thank you so much. I really think I'll be using the mascaras a lot. They are so pigmented! And yes, I think you'd love the lippy tinted balms. They are so smooth and creamy.

  4. Looks really nice on you. The blue mascara is so fun and really pigmented. It seems like these products (Rock Your Color) are only sold in the US, been trying to get the pink and green mascara, but in seems impossible (I live in Sweden). Will it arrive to other countries later on you think?

    Really nice review by the way =)
