butter LONDON Lippy/Nail Lacquer Combo in Toff

butter LONDON AutumnWinter 2012 Lippy Collection in Toff
“The matchy-matchy lip and nail trend is here to stay! Inspired by the high-impact lips seen on the catwalks this season, the LIPPY A/W ‘12 collection includes bold pops of color, chic nudes and a vampy hue. The shades are rich and highly pigmented for a look that’s luxe and perfectly on trend!”
Pin ItI have a confession to write.  I didn’t like the butter LONDON Lippy’s when they first came out.  I was sent two to try, but I found the smell so unpleasant I couldn’t even bring myself to write a review of them.  So when butter LONDON asked if I wanted to try the new Lippy/polish combo sets for fall, I was hesitant.  Hoping that the third time’s a charm, I agreed.  And I’m glad I did!  I was sent the Lippy and Nail Lacquer in Toff.

The horrible floral smell, which I found so offensive, is gone.  It has be replaced with a caramel toffee flavor that is divine.  It smells like one of those drinks from Starbucks that has more than a 1,000 calories in it…  The best part is a minute or two after I applied the gloss, I couldn’t smell anything!  I love products scents that don’t linger.  (Unless we are talking about perfume… I mean, if it doesn’t linger, what’s the point?)  The color is great too... a darker, dustier, brownish variation on a rose pink that when applied is my perfect MLBB shade.

The nail color is slightly darker than the lip color.  Inside it appears to be a dark mauve, but outside it was more of a raisin shade.  Very work appropriate.  Very Fall.  I can only see myself wearing this in the Fall or Winter, while I can see myself wearing the lip gloss year round.

LIPPYs are $17 each, 3 Free Lacquers are $14 each.  There are five different Lippy/Lacquer sets available, I have my eye on the La Moss set next, a gorgeous vampy duo for fall!
