I’m so excited to share with you some new makeup products from butter LONDON. Many of you may already be very familiar with their gorgeous nail polishes. However, within the last year or two they have been adding makeup products to their line.
Today I’m featuring their new Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayons. There are a total of 8 luxurious colors that will compliment so many skin tones (I’ll be sharing 7 of the 8 today). From nude all the way to hot pink, I’m more than positive you’ll find a shade you’ll fall in love with.
These are described as an “all-in-one formula that delivers lacquer-like shine & high fashion color.” Oh right they are! I don’t have any lip crayons that delivers the high gloss factor that these do. It’s literally like having lipgloss in pencil form but without the mess.
Not only do they deliver high-shine but they go on extremely smooth. So smooth in fact, that it feels like it’s just melting onto your lips. At times I found the application to be a little too soft and would cause the tip of the crayon to smoosh up and break off in tiny little chunks on my lips. I’m not sure if I was applying them a little too hard or if it was just the lip crayon itself.
Thanks to the Mango Seed Oil and Marula Oil in them, they will leave your lips super hydrated. Some of you may know that swatching lip products back to back can cause some irritation leaving your lips dry. However, even after repeatedly removing them from my lips, my lips still felt very hydrated, soft and smooth.
Love the pigmentation! butter LONDON describes them as being opaque, I found that you had to build up to that opaque coverage. Which is completely fine with me because even as a bit of a sheer color it’s still very beautiful. Since these have the finish of a gloss you would think that building up the color would cause it to be very thick, heavy and sticky on the lips, but it was the complete opposite.
Even with the finish of a gloss, they have the lasting power of a lipstick. With eating and drinking I got a good 3-4 hours before needing a touch-up. I could have gotten away with not touching up because it left behind a vert pretty light stain with no patchiness.
Another great thing about these lip crayons is that they include a sharpener built right into the cap. I’m so glad they did this because I’m notorious for losing all my makeup sharpeners and would be devastated if I needed to touch up my lips and I had to scrape for product. It’s also perfect for getting an almost pointed tip to help applying it to your lip line.
Overall, I’m truly loving the butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayons! I keep wanting to call them lipsticks but I think they lean more towards a lipgloss. All the colors are absolutely stunning and are all popular shades, but if I had to pick a favorite shade I would choose Tea with the Queen. Why? Because I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect nude for my skin tone and this is definitely it! I can see this as being my go-to color for an everyday minimal makeup look.
