Butter London Boho Rock Lippy Tinted Balm Review & Swatches
The Butter London Boho Rock Collection for Spring 2014 features three new shades of Butter London Lippy Tinted Balm. You may recall earlier this year the Butter London Makeup Collection had launched and honestly so soon after the launch I didn’t expect to see new shades popping up for Spring but was ever so delighted that they did in fact launch new products.
Recently, I reviewed Butter London Wink Cream Eyeshadow which also happens to have new shades available in this new Boho Rock Collection!
My first try out with the Butter London Lippy Tinted Balm was a rave so I was excited to dig into new shades especially since the new colors seemed to be quite natural shades perfect for lighter Spring looks!
Take a peek!
Mush and Teddy Boy are the two shades I grabbed up from this collection but there is a third I’ve been considering grabbing after I purchased these. These are sheerer shades with a very natural, nude, almost MLBB (my lips but better) finish.
The Butter London Lippy Tinted Balm is a hybrid balm slash lipstick formula that’s already available in six shades. The formula has a lighter balm texture generally with a semi-matte finish however, with Mush and Teddy Boy I experience more of a cream slash semi-matte finish that was slightly drier than the normal range. The shades lack shimmer and sparkle and also fail to provide any real moisture so they do kinda emphasize drier lips and will feel drying on. Color lasts for about four hours with a faint vanilla flavor and fragrance that’s very subtle.
Teddy Boy and Mush
Originally I experienced a nice sheen finish on the shade I tried in Strawberry Field when I reviewed this product sometime ago however, I find these Boho Rock shades lack sheen any aren’t as moisturizing or balmy. Fact is, they are pretty darn dry!
I will however, say the colors are very pretty so if you don’t mind the dryness and maybe apply a bit of clear gloss on top they prove very wearable! I wore Mush with a gloss in my image below and Teddy Boy without.
Although at $20 each you probably shouldn’t have to “work with them”. They should be good out of the box…a little cheaper and you might feel a bit better about the beautiful colors and a bit less worried about the drier texture.
I admit, I liked them regardless….! But yeah, a bit more moisture wouldn’t go unnoticed.
Grab them now at Ulta and Ulta.com.
