Butter London LIPPY & Lacquer: Primrose Hill Picnic
Let's begin with Butter London Nail Lacquer in Primrose Hill Picnic. Described as "A happy, punchy, tropical, fuschia pink lacquer. Will make you want to take off your shoes and run barefoot through the office." on butterlondon.com, retails at $14.00 and is .4 fl oz.
I found this polish to be very pigmented, needing just 2 coats to get fully opaque, it applies smooth and evenly, easy to use brush and the color is bright and cheery - PERFECT for sunny days! It lasted about 4 days (with a base and top coat) before any chipping began. For $14, this is definitely worth picking up, I love the color and I love how long it has lasted on me.
Now for the NEW Butter London LIPPY in Primrose Hill Picnic. Described as "A punchy, tropical, fuchsia pink." onbutterlondon.com, retails at $17.00 and is .24 fl oz.
I found this lip gloss to be quite thick, like a lip lacquer (which is kinda the point), very pigmented (almost like a lipstick), the applicator grabs a lot of product, but since it is pretty thick I had to redip the applicator a few times to get a full coverage of color on my lips. My favorite thing about the lip gloss is the staying power, it lasts hours and hours. The heavy formulation just clings to my lips and even with drinking and eating I still have the stain from the very pigmented color. The shine is high when first applied, then it settles down to a medium shine after an hour or two. I absolutely love this LIPPY and at $17 it's definitely a splurge item. Just based on the amazing experience with Primrose Hill Picnic, I'm planning on buying Snog soon!
butter LONDON™ Enters Lip Category with Launch of LIPPY
butter LONDON™, the cult phenomenon of the nail industry, built their reputation on cutting edge colour. Their 3 Free nail lacquers were created backstage at Fashion Week and have made their way from catwalk to sidewalk in record time. This season, butter LONDON™ will expand their hold on colour with the launch of LIPPY, a range of long-wearing, lacquer-like lip glosses in shades to match their famous nail lacquers.
As a backstage fixture, the brand noticed a growing trend for S/S 2012 in "matchy-matchy" manicures, pedicures, and lips. This elegant, classic look is making a comeback, but modernized with fresh new colours. The LIPPY colours are rich and densely pigmented for a look that's deliberate, high fashion, and luxe, just like the brand’s nail lacquers.
LIPPY will launch with five bespoke butter LONDON™ shades – Primrose Hill Picnic, Snog, Trout Pout, Yummy Mummy and Teddy Girl – in April. (Ulta will have exclusive availability in March 2012)
