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.

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.
