Today I am doing a review on two of the new butter LONDON Lippys for Autumn/Winter 2012 and the matching nail lacquers. The two I have are Queen Vic and Tea with the Queen. Shall we get started?
*Note - for the Lippy swatches I layered one coat of Lippy over a moisturizing lip balm, I have found that they cover more evenly when layered.
First I have swatches of the two lippys so you can see how they look on my skin tone.
Queen Vic, Tea with the Queen
Queen Vic Lippy is a berry magenta. Butter LONDON describes it as 'red wine meets cranberry. Fit for a Queen'. This is a nice bright pop of color on the lips and it went on smoothly. This isn't a color I would wear every day, but it would be really fun to wear for a night out.
Tea with the Queen Lippy is a pinkish nude 'exceptional for work, or obviously, tea with the Queen' as butter LONDON describes. I'd have to agree, I have been wearing this to work all week and I absolutely love it. It goes really well with my skin tone, giving my lips just a hint of color and a glossy shine. This applied nicely and stayed on for about 3 hours.
Tea with the Queen Lacquer is, like the Lippy, a pinkish nude creme. This leans more peachy than the matching Lippy, with a hint of brown. A very pretty neutral with a high shine finish. The first coat went on sheer but after 3 coats it was perfect.
Overall I am really pleased with these new Lippy's from butter LONDON. I can tell you now that I will be wearing Tea with the Queen over and over and over again. It is a total win for me, and for you ladies who don't want bold bright lips, but still want a hint of color, Tea with the Queen is perfect.
Do you like these new Lippy's from butter LONDON? Are you a fan of the matching tips and lips look? I'd love to know your thoughts!
Lippy's are available now on butterlondon.com and ulta.com and retail for $17 each.
