Butter London LIPPY & Lacquer: Trout Pout
Starting off with Butter London Nail Lacquer in Trout Pout, it's described as "An opaque shade of cantaloupe, a pale and retro lacquer." onbutterlondon.com, retails at $14.00 for .4 fl oz.
This color holds true to the description, it's a cheery cantaloupe shade, bright and very pigmented. I only needed 2 coats to get a full opaque coverage, and on its own it has a very shiny finish, but of course a top coat will extend that "fresh manicure" finish for a few more days. I love this shade on my hands, but I've been obsessively wearing it on my toes - this bright shade makes my olive skin tone look tan and ready for Summer!
On to the NEW Butter London LIPPY in Trout Pout. Described as "A creamy peach-cantaloupe colour." on butterlondon.com, retails at $17.00 for .24 fl oz.
This is definitely a lip LACQUER! It's thick, very pigmented and it lasts on the lips for hours. It provides a really high shine finish and wears down to a light stain. The LIPPY has a pretty tacky feeling, but once it warms into your lips it smooths out and that "sticky" feel goes away. I don't personally like this shade on me (I'm not one for neutral or nude colors), but I can see this being a great shade for my nude-lippie-loving readers!
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)
