Butter London's new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection has me "Gobsmacked." lol. If you're British, you know what this means. I know my fellow Americans are like, "huh?". Well that basically means the collection has left me shocked. I'm not really shocked, but I wanted to use that word, "Gobsmacked" in a sentence. However, I am impressed with it. The colors are pretty gorgeous. They've released the beautiful BeSpoke collection and their Autumn/Winter Lippys. I'll be reviewing some of each here. Butter London has a huge following and I've always wondered why. However, after testing their last few collections, I can honestly say, I'm a believer. Their colors are rich, cruelty free, unique, and apply like a dream. Click below to read my review:
First of all, can we talk about how funny the names are! The first polishes I'm reviewing are from the Bespoke collection.
Dodgy Barnett-this means a "bad hairdo." I love that. This shade is so interesting. In certain lighting, it looks a bit gray but in the sun, it transforms into silver sparkles with hints of blue. Just gorgeous.
Gobsmacked-This shade means, "utterly astounded." The perfect name for this unusually stunning shade. I've never seen its equal. A charcoal gray polish with bits of silver and light green glitter You would think with all of this glitter that the color would be hard to remove. I took this color off with no problems and no glitter mess anywhere. I know I will be rocking it heavily in the winter.
Butter London has also released their Autumn Lippy Winter Collection.
Queen Vic -a red wine with cranberry. A cream finish. Two coats with this one.
Here's the matching Lippy. I fell in love with the lippy so hard. It's a little pinker than the nail polish, and it last for a good three hours before reapplication. So beautiful. Feels hydrating and no stickiness at all.
Here's Tea With the Queen -a pink tan cream finish polish. Perfect for work. Two coats is what I used here.
All in all, I see what the hype is with this brand. Yes, they are pretty expensive at $14.00 a piece, but you should see the other three colors in the Bespoke collection. They are so unique, interesting, and gorgeous. Can't wait to get my hands on more Butter London.
Speaking of London, Mr. Milly is there for the Olympics as a guest of the USA wrestling team and look who he ran into-Gymnastics Olympian, Gabby Douglas.
I'm so jealous. I love Gabby Douglas.
