Butter London (most well-known for their nail polish) has been expanding their line into cosmetics as well! I recently received the opportunity to try out some products and have my thoughts to share with you today. They sent me doubles of everything I’m reviewing here so stay tuned to the end for a giveaway as well!
As you may or may not know, I’m not really a huge makeup user other than polish. I’ll wear it occasionally if I’m going out but I’m not a regular user so keep that in mind when reading my review, ha! Let’s take a look at the polish first.
Butter London Ladybird is a bright tomato red creme. I used two coats along with Out The Door top coat. The formula was great, a little on the thin side but easy to apply with no pooling as long as you don’t overload the brush. I love Butter London’s brush, too- it’s the perfect size for my nailbeds to get even application in three strokes.
Butter London Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara
I actually really love this mascara- the wand makes it super easy to apply and it’s not at all clumpy. I feel like sometimes even though mascara looks alright in person when I see closeup photos of it it looks a bit too clumpy for my taste but this one was just my lashes but better. Because I have nearly-hooded eyes and straight lashes I typically curl my lashes before application but I wanted to show you guys just the mascara on it’s own. (In retrospect I should have also taken a photo looking down without mascara but I wasn’t thinking at the time!) In general I prefer a natural look so I will be getting a LOT of use from this one!
Butter London Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon in Ladybird
I’m not sure this is my color but I did like the formula- creamy, smooth, moisturizing and opaque. It also comes with it’s own sharpener on the other end which is nice! I have small lips so applying it with the large pencil was a bit of a challenge and next time I’d probably use a lip brush around the edges at least. I actually don’t wear lip products often at all but I may have to pick this up in different shades.
Butter London Wink Eye Pencil in Union Jack Black
The formula on this one is a bit too soft for my taste (half of the point fell right off as I was applying it to my eyelid with a pretty light hand) but would be good for smudging out for smoky looks.
Overall, I think this is a pretty great set of products! I will be repurchasing the mascara for sure and will keep an eye out for other colors of their lip crayon. What do you think about this brand? Have you tried out any of their polish or cosmetics before? Let me know in the comments!
