butter london color favorites

butter london cheeky lippy

i have fallen pretty hard for the butter london color cosmetics collection. i was fully introduced to the line at the ny now market in august and was shocked then to find myself drawn towards blue eyelashes, electric green eyeliner, and balmy black cherry lips. now that i’ve had the time to really play with some things, i have honed in on two clear favorites that i’ve been reaching for daily: cheeky cream blush in pistol pink and lippy tinted lip balm in black cherry. the vibes of these two products could not be more different, but i’ve found that they work beautifully together.

cheeky cream blush ($20) is silky and sheer, easily buildable, and pistol pink is a serious fuchsia  that can go from subtle to fierce with the swipe of your fingertips. i’ve taken to applying it with this duo fiber buffer from morphe because the size is perfect for picking blush up out of the pan and it creates the perfect cheek effortlessly with just a few stipples. (also, you can’t beat the price!) now, the color is bold but i love a pop of hot pink on my cheeks!

for lips, lippy tinted lip balm ($20) is your new best friend. these formulas are light and sheer, feeling really nice once they’re on, and wearing a surprisingly long time for a tinted lip. the black cherry shade is a fall must, a wine red with just a touch of edge. i’m the first one to shy away from a vampy lip (i think it looks mean!) but this color has stolen my heart and i like the way that it adds a little attitude to my oft-understated makeup look.

have you tried the butter london color cosmetics yet?
think you’ll give either of these beauties a go?

and ps : can we just give a small round of applause for
amazon’s new luxury beauty department?
they never cease to amaze.
