Butter London English Rose Wink Cream Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Butter London English Rose Wink Cream Eyeshadow 6

Butter London English Rose Wink Cream Eyeshadow is one of four new shades that launched with the Boho Rock Wink Eye Shadow Collection for Spring 2014.

You may recall I reviewed the shade Treacle earlier in the month and at the time I happened to purchase English Rose with it.

Let’s take a look!

Treacle was more of a disappointing color wash eyeshadow for me and I felt like it was very, very sheer but Butter London English Rose Wink Cream Eyeshadow proves these shades are buildable and can pack pigment!

Butter London English Rose Wink Cream Eyeshadow is a beautiful metallic rose in the tube but on eyes it has more of a dusky, dirty rose finish. The color has a high sheen and gives the appearance of a wash versus an cream eyeshadow right down to the formula which has a slicker feel. It’s a very pretty color and doesn’t disappoint as much as Treacle did which applied quite sheerer.

This has a thicker, creamy consistent with a slicker texture. The formula blends out super smoothly and doesn’t sheer out as much as Treacle did. It also builds quite well but does have a ultra quick dry down compared to Treacle. Overall, the performance and formula was far better than my experience with Treacle. The wear time is considerably better too with a solid five hours of wear without creasing and showing minor fading into hour six.

Although a Spring release the shade is warmer and can be warn throughout most seasons. If you favorite a warm, rosy lid you’ll enjoy Butter London English Rose Wink Cream Eyeshadow.

It’s available now at Ulta and Ulta.com.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’m a sucker for colors like this, enhances my blue eyes, and you can wear this color everyday to work, interview, etc.

    I love base eyeshadow shades like this one! Wink looks like something I would wear all the time. I’m not sure if they will bring this into our local Sephora but I will definitely keep a lookout for them.

    I found this at Marshalls recently. I haven’t been quite sure how to wear it or what shadows to layer over it. I’m almost tempted to try it as a lip base lol
