butter LONDON Lippy & Lacquer Duos in Come to Bed Red and Queen Vic Swatches and Reviews
Happy Thursday! Today I have some butter LONDON beauties to show you! I’m really loving their Lippy & Nail Lacquer duos and I have 2 in this post! Come to Bed Red and Queen Vic. I won’t lie, both Lippy colors intimidated me something fierce, but after applying them I really loved them, even on me. I generally wear very toned down lip glosses and lipsticks, the butter LONDON Lippy’s were very vibrant and rich in color, but I can see myself wearing these more!
Ready to see?
Queen Vic Nail Lacquer:
Let’s start with my favorite! Queen Vic is a vibrant cranberry creme. I used 3 coats for my mani. I probably could have gotten away with 2, but my nails are getting really long ( I do need to chop them down soon!) so I did a 3rd coat for good measure. The formula was great on this one!
Queen Vic Lippy:
Here is the matching Lippy! This went really good with my skintone! Just like the nail lacquer, Queen Vic Lippy is a cranberry creme, but the polish on me was a richer purple while the lippy leans more pinkish. I only used 1 coat of gloss on my lips for this pic (the way I prefer it) but it IS a buildable color. This is a “sticky lippy”, so if you aren’t thrilled with that, this may not be for you. The gloss lasted about 4 hours on me and even after the “stickiness” went away, the color remained.
Come To Bed Red Nail Lacquer:
Now THIS is a RED polish! Come To Bed Red is a classic, bright red creme! I don’t wear red much. I do love red, but I work with paper a lot at work and I usually leave red “scuff marks” behind on paper whenever I do a red mani, so I avoid it a bit now. I used 3 coats for this mani and a glossy top coat.
Come To Bed Red Lippy:
Just like it’s nail lacquer buddy, this is a classic, bright red creme! BUT I found it to be a wearable red as far as lippy’s go. I generally shy away from red lips because I generally look goofy in it or like a 5 year old who decided to put on mommy’s lipstick. It just never works out for me. I did like this one and may save it for special occasions when I build up the nerve to wear it again (I was THAT intimidated!). It is a beautiful color though, and the color lasted a good 5 hours on me. This photo shows 1 coat of Come To Bed Red Lippy, but it is buildable if you wish for a richer, deeper red.
I want more Lippy & Nail Lacquer Duo’s! I love that they came out with matching sets and I do think the Lippy formula changed since the last set I used. The colors seemed milkier before when I tested them, and these aren’t (I prefer these).
