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.
Here are the swatches of all three. From top to bottom: eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara:
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.
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.
