I recently shared the press release of the butter LONDON Lippy Liquid Lipsticks for Spring 2013, and the colours looked so juicy and delicious that I could not wait to try them. Described as a supercharged take on the statement lip, with fruity shades and lush pops of colour in coral, watermelon, poppy pink, cool mauve and deep berry, Lippy increase in pigment the more you apply. The shades ranges from a subtle pop of colour to a bright and vibrant lip. Love!
I was able to review three of the gorgeous new shades, and this being my very first butter LONDON experience, and I could not have been more pleased. Lippy Liquid Lipsticks are heavenly from the moment you twist open the cap and are introduced to the sweet aroma of vanilla cupcakes… the soft scent of spun sugar lingers on your lips after application ever so slightly… divine! The three colours I tried were all opaque, providing lots of coverage: Dahling, a dusky pink, Wine Gums, a gorgeous deep plum, and Jaffa, a bright orange-coral.
Dahling is what I would call a neutral-toned liquid lipstick; very suitable for most skintones and for the shyest among us. Dahling is an easy treat, dahling!
Wine Gums is a bold plum that applies brighter than it would appear in the tube; it was totally a colour I would choose and wear with my olive skin! It may be a bit more of a statement lip for the fairer among us, but again, I see this shade suiting almost anyone!!
Last but not least, Jaffa screams summer with its bright orange-coral base, and what I love most about Jaffa is that it applies as it looks. I buy a lot of corals and oranges in the hot months, and unless they are matte or ultra-rich lipsticks, the coral often does not translate from the tube to the lip. (I have a drawer full of orange glosses to show you!) But Jaffa delivers! As for suitability, I feel that anyone can pull off an orange lip, especially if you tie in the rest of your makeup a little with some warmer tones… I will certainly be rocking this shade all summer long! (Do you think I can ward off old man winter if I wear Jaffa enough?)
Here is a swatch on my arm to give you an idea of coverage and pigmentation:
L to R: Jaffa, Dahling and Wine Gums
Lippy is high-shine, fairly long-lasting considering it is a lipgloss/lipstick hybrid, and as mentioned before, incredibly scented. I cannot get enough Lippy now that I’ve tasted its sweet colour and smelled its intoxicating scent!
