Butter London Queen Vic Lacquer & Lippy Swatches!

TGIF! Happy Friday guys, I am so ready for this weekend...it feels like it's been a longer than normal work week and that's never fun! Today I have a couple Butter London goodies to show you guys! Butter London just recently released their Fall 2012 Lippy & Lacquer duos and I have 1 of them to share with you. The lacquer isn't a new shade but now it has a matching lip gloss!

Queen Vic is a dark wine/cranberry colored creme. This is one of those classic Fall shades, it's the kind of shade that flatters a lot of skin tones! The formula was great, it flowed nicely and was easy to apply! I used 2 coats for the photos below!



Alright, now be gentle guys....below is my first ever lip swatch. This will probably not be something seen around these parts very much. I'm a big lip gloss loving lady but make up swatches scare me, I was kind of amazed how hard it was to take a picture of my lips haha!

The Queen Vic Lippy isn't not an exact match to the lacquer, it's lighter and more pink, but it's definitely in that same kind of cranberry family. On me, this is a flattering color, it gives a nice flush of color without being too over the top. I feel like I can wear this on it's own during the day and also transition it into night easily by building the opacity up a bit more. The lippy was on the sticky side, I know some people don't like that but it doesn't really bother me. Because of the sticky-ness the wear time is really great, I don't find that I need to constantly re-apply it. These glosses are scented, the scent reminds me of cake...aka it smells delicious!


Butter London's Fall 2012 Lippy and Lacquer duos are available now, you can find them over at ButterLondon.com. The Lippy's retail for $17 and the Lacquer's retail for $14. You can also find them in store at places like Ulta and Nordstrom!

  2. I love this color and the lip swatch is GORGEOUS!!!! I won't even post lip swatches on my blog since the pics always look goofy and I can never hold the camera right so it looks like I have an under bite when I don't LOL. I love that they are doing polishes with a corresponding lip gloss...I think all polishes should start doing that!!!

  6. This is such a beautiful color! Do you happen to know of any cheaper dupes (or near-dupes) for it?

  7. Am not a fan of Lippies - too tacky sticky and they make my lips peel but my lips are really sensitive of late - I am sticking with Tarte Lipsurgance and IT Cosmetics (lip stain) only - I honestly tossed out everything else but for 1 Lancome shade. Love this BL shade for nails however - I need to dig mine out..it's perfect for the fall transition I am in when I cannot do a dark vampy yet. it's looking to me like a lighter (more white in it) version of the new OPI Casino Royale from the Skyfall collection - a shade I am really loving.

  8. Oh and forgot to add - great job on the shot of your lips!

  9. OPI did a # of lipsticks with each collection for some time - have not seen them do this now for the past maybe 2 yrs.

  10. I haven't had a chance to look through my stash but I'm sure there is something close. I'll look through my polishes this weekend and see if I can find anything!

  12. I haven't seen them do any lipsticks for a while either. I know they did some glosses for the Muppet collection last year but I don't think they were matchy matchy like these are

  13. I had Queen Vic as a pedi for a solid two weeks...unheard of for me but the color looked so pretty on my tan skin I couldn't part with it! Got some Halloween Crowstoes and off it went :)

  14. maybe Essie Bahama Mama? It's only a little cheaper, though...

  15. Can I say your lips are cute or does that sound weird? Well, I am saying it anyway: cute lips! The polish color is pretty too.
