Aloha Doughballerinos (doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, does it?)
I’m just popping in to let y’all know about my shiny new lipstick from Butter London. To be perfectly honest, I had no idea Butter did lipsticks, despite being a huuuuuge fan of their beautiful nail lacquers. So when I was kindly sent this lippy over I couldn’t wait to crack it open and give it a try.
The lipstick in question is Butter London Moisture Matte. The colour I was sent is called ‘Loved Up’ – a beautiful soft fuschia pink. I’m more of a traditional red lipstick kinda gal most of the time, but ever since purchasing my awesome Lime Crime Velvetines I’ve been taking to more rosy hues. This particular colour is lovely; it’s the right balance between being bright and bold but not luminous, so it’s understated enough for daytime wear too.
Let’s talk about the casing for a moment, shall we? I adore the square exterior, which feels robust enough to pop in my handbag and not have to worry about it (unlike those Topshop lipsticks, those got destroyed in my bag). Even the packaging it comes in is adorable – I’m still clinging on to that box because of the pretty pattern inside.
The consistency is positively dreamy. It’s a long-lasting, non-drying formula which promises to not feather or bleed, so I put this on without pencil. It has a really creamy finish, consisting of Mango Seed Butter, Murumuru Seed Butter, and Cupuacu Seed Butter, plus Vitamin E to ‘smooth the lip surface and ensure a flawless application’.
There is a slight vanilla-y scent to it, which I’m unsure I’m mad keen on, but it’s an improvement on the bizarre play-doh scent of Lime Crime’s lippys, that’s for sure.
To be honest, the softness of the consistency and the way it applied had me a bit worried about its staying power. Having said that, on this particular evening that I decided to road test it, I scoffed a whole load of pizza, and it didn’t budge. So in my books, it has passed the test with flying colours :).
Have you got a new favourite lippy?
