butter LONDON Lippy and Lacquer Sets Swatches and Review
I have been absolutely DYING to try out butter LONDON Lippy’s as well as their matching nail lacquers! Lippy’s are brand new to the butter LONDON line and for me are a welcome addition! “Lippy” is British slang for someone who makes impertinent or cheeky remarks.. hmm.. I know a few people like this.
I had the opportunity of reviewing Teddy Girl and Trout Pout! You ready for this?
We will start with Trout Pout. The name alone makes me smile. Since the release of Trout Pout Nail Lacquer with butter LONDON’s Spring 2012 line, I couldn’t help but think of :

Trout Pout is cruel slang for a woman who has “over done” the collagen in her lips, leaving her with a rather fishy face. I didn’t want to post an actual woman’s face, so the fish will do.
Here is a side by side of Trout Pout Lippy and Nail Lacquer.
Trout Pout is an opaque shade of cantaloupe. Very pretty for Spring and Summer! I used two coats of Trout Pout with no issues. Dry time was about 6 minutes between coats!
Trout Pout Lippy isn’t quite as vibrant on the lips as it is on the nails, but it is still a pretty shade! See the comparison:
Trout Pout Lippy is slightly sticky going on, but once on it feels more like a lipstick than a lipgloss. The sticky feeling goes away after a minute or two, which made me happy. I’m not a huge fan of sticky lipgloss. Coverage is good and wear time lasted me about 3 hours.
Next up is Teddy Girl!
Sorry, no snazzy image for this one!
“Teddy Boys and Girls” was a youth culture movement in Britain typified by teens fighting , drinking, shagging and fighting some more.
Side by side comparison of Teddy Girl Lippy and Nail Lacquer:
Teddy Girl is a pale, retro, bubblegum pink. I really love this soft shade! I needed 3 coats to get to an opacity I was comfortable with. I had slight streaking issues on the first and second coats, but three seemed to be the magic number. Dry time was about 5 minutes per coat and I topped this one off with a glossy top coat.
Once again, Teddy Girl Lippy is a little darker than Teddy Girl Nail Lacquer!
Teddy Girl Lippy was a tad too light for my skin tone, but still pretty. Much like Trout Pout, it felt like a lipstick once on and was only slightly sticky on application. It is also slightly darker than it’s matching nail lacquer!
