butter LONDON Lippy Shimmer Collection Swatches and Review

Today I have the Lippy Shimmer Collection by butter LONDON to show you which consists of 6 neutral shimmer glosses which are perfect for work, or even a minimal makeup look.

These are all fairly sheer shades.  Because of my natural lip pigmentation (and the fact that I don’t want the gloss to look gloopy) a few of these look incredibly similar.  If you build them up, the difference is noticeable, but the gloss will look very thick in doing so.

Wag

Wag

What the name means: Term used primarily by the British tabloid press to describe the wives and girlfriends of high-profile footballers.

Wag is a sheer, peachy pink shimmer lip gloss with gold flecks.

Swish

Swish2

What the name means: To be very expensive or fashionable.

Swish is a sheer, apricot shimmer lip gloss.

Beaker

Beaker

What the name means: A child’s sippy-cup.

Beaker is a sheer, nearly clear iridescent shimmer lip gloss.

Tickety Boo

Tickety Boo

What the name means: A saying for when something is going well.

Tickety Boo is a sheer, blush shimmer lip gloss.

Pip Pip

Pip Pip

What the name means: A way to bid farewell, often used by the upper classes.

Pip Pip (am I the only one who wants to add ‘cheerio’ to the end of that?) is a sheer, golden bronze shimmer lip gloss.

Punch Up

Punch Up

What the name means: A quarrel or violent argument.

Punch Up is a sheer, strawberry shimmer lip gloss with gold flecks.

Overall, I do like these glosses, but I don’t ‘love them’.  I’m not a big gloss fan, I prefer lipsticks or balms because most glosses have a stickiness I just can’t get use to.  butter LONDON’s Lippy Shimmers aren’t nearly as sticky as other’s I have encountered, but they are just sticky enough to make it so that I don’t wear them on a regular basis. I do still use these at least once a week though. They all have a very light vanilla scent to them (and for those not aware, when the scent is gone – it usually means the Lippy’s are bad.  This goes for most lipsticks/glosses).

My Top Picks: Wag, Tickety Boo and Beaker.

Price: $20.00 each (tubes are 7.4 mL or .25 fl oz)

Where to Buy: butter LONDON website, ULTA, and Nordstroms
