butter LONDON, while best-known for their phenomenal nail polishes, has a stupendous makeup line that is very worthy of your consideration. I have recently been testing more of their makeup, and wanted to share a few of my recent favorites with you.
butter LONDON Wink Matte Liquid Eyeliner in Union Jack Black (Regular Price $20.00 on Sale for $14.00 from butter LONDON and Amazon): This limited edition liquid liner is amazing!!! If you love liquid eye liners, then it is definitely worth grabbing one of these before they are gone! It has the perfect fine tip that allows for very fine application, control and precision. Once it sets, which is quite fast, it stays put on me all day long without any transfer. The shade is a very rich black with a matte finish.

According to butter LONDON,

Intensify your look with the WINK Matte Liquid Eyeliner that delivers precision performance that lasts all day.

Features and Benefits:
  • Intense colour payoff in a matte finish
  • Quick-drying formula does not feather, smudge, or transfer
  • Long-lasting and water-resistant
  • Precision felt-tip, ergonomic shape for easy control and smooth application
  • A blend of polymers allows for precise lining and staying power
Ingredients: Aqua (Water/Eau), Styrene/Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Methylpropanediol, Poloxamer 407, PPG-70 Tocophereth-100, Coco-Glucoside, Phenoxyethanol, Butylene Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Laureth-12 Sulfate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Ammonium Hydroxide, Simethicone, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Steareth-4, Steareth-20, Sorbic Acid, BHT, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyanide).
butter LONDON Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara in Brilliant Black ($20.00 for 0.22 oz. from butter LONDON, UltaBeauty Expert and Nordstrom): This jet black mascara boasts serious pigmentation, a non-clumping formula, and it conditions the lashes. Furthermore, it never flakes, smudges or migrates. The innovative wand works well in its ability to lift and separate lashes, but it does take a little bit of use to become accustomed to the ball tip.

According to butter LONDON,

Get 300% increase in volume with just one coat for high-impact lashes with mega-watt shine.

Features and Benefits:
  • Double feature molded brush for volume, definition and separation (Body - volumizes & lifts; Ball - defines & separates)
  • Jet-black shine finish & lifts - Patent Shine Fusion Polymers
  • Condition lashes – Butters
  • Promotes lash growth – Vitamin B
  • Builds strength – Amino acids
  • No clumping, smudging, or flaking
  • Ophthalmologist tested
Directions: Apply to lashes using the center part of the mascara wand. Pull the bristles through the lashes in a zig-zag motion to coat each lash. Use the tip of the wand to lengthen and define.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water/Eau), Propanediol, Cera Alba/Beeswax/Cire d’abeille, Acrylates Copolymer, Sucrose Polystearate, Cera Carnauba/Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax/Cire de Carnauba, PVP, Stearic Acid, Tribehenin, Arginine, Behenyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 80, Silica, Hydrolyzed Verbascum Thapsus Flower, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Garcinia Indica Seed Butter, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Panthenol, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Theobroma Grandiflorum Seed Butter, Soy Amino Acids, Wheat Amino Acids, Phenoxyethanol, Glycerin, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate, Isohexadecane, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, PEG-90, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Tocopherol, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Laureth-20, Citric Acid, Arginine HCl, Serine, Threonine, Benzyl Alcohol, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides).
butter LONDON Glazen Eye Gloss in Bronzed ($24.00 for 0.17 oz. from butter LONDON, Ulta and Nordstrom): As a cream shadow fanatic, I was quite excited about trying this lightweight, cushiony gel-textured eye gloss. It applies wet, but it dries down like a powder, and stays put all day long– with little to no sparkle fallout. I wear it without a primer, but if you have particularly oily eyelids– then you might want to use a primer. Bronzed is a gorgeous antiqued bronze with an intense metallic shimmer that is ultra-flattering.

According to butter LONDON,

A new trick in your beauty arsenal, Glazen™ Eye Gloss is a breakthrough eye shadow that delivers a wet look shine, without being wet. This playful, pudding-like texture applies like a gel, but dries like a powder and lasts all day.

  • Light Weight
  • Crease-Resistant
  • Long-Wearing
  • Buildable – sheer shimmer to intense metallic
  • Betaine – skin conditioning to help prevent dry eyelids
  • Gellan Gum – unique gelling agent gives a pudding-like texture and creates a film to keep the sparkle from budging
  • Unique pearl suspension gives the product a “wet look” on the lid
Directions: Apply with finger, start in the inner corner of the eyelid and blend outwards. For a high-metallic finish add a second layer of colour.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water/Eau), Butylene Glycol, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Mica, Alumina, Talc, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Betaine, Silica, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polysorbate 20, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Gellan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77163 (Bismuth Oxychloride).
butter LONDON Plush Rush Lipstick ($22.00 each for oz. from butter LONDON, Ulta, Nordstrom and b-glowing): This lipstick formula is luxuriously creamy with perfect amount of cushion for comfortable wear. It glides across the lips effortlessly, deposits color evenly, and it neither migrates, nor feathers. The formula is intensely pigmented, and it offers full opaque coverage with a single pass. Furthermore, it clings to the lips with some tenacity for long-wear, it is moisturizing, and it has a gentle plumping effect without any discomfort. There is a very slight refreshing, tingle, but it is pleasant rather than uncomfortable.

Plush Rush Lipstick in Lucky is described as a mauve pink creme plumping lipstick. I would characterize it as more of a peachy pink nude.

Plush Rush Lipstick in Impulsive is described as a red creme plumping lipstick.

  1. Oh my, a new cream shadow from Butter London! So exciting. The lipstick shades are beautiful. I'd wear them both in a heartbeat. So sad I fell off their PR list. But I think the Ulta has a spring sale, and that will be my pick!

    1. The eyeshadow is really stunning! Yes, I think that both of the lipsticks would be lovely on you, Allison!

  2. The eyeshadow looks beautiful. I was so sure it would stay tacky on. I'm glad to know it dries down like that.

    1. I agree, Marcia! I definitely didn't know what to expect with eyeshadow formula, and was initially concerned that it would stay either wet or tacky, and be a mess, but was I ever wrong! I love this formula!

  3. Butter London is so good with their variety of products they have been offering. I am so impressed with their cosmetic line.

    1. I am also quite impressed by the quality of their makeup!

  4. It's been a while since I've used anything new from Butter London, but the Eye Gloss shade looks really great.

    1. The Eye Gloss is DEFINITELY worth getting! It is such a beautiful product with a fantastic formula!

  5. I love Butter London polishes, but their makeup game is impressive too. That Eye Gloss looks gorgeous!
