Wow! That’s a bit of a crazy name. A crazy name indeed but a bloody brilliant product! See what I did there? Check out the Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon line up! I have shade swatches for you.
So there little beauties are promising to make us fall in love with lip crayons all over again, and as they really have been done, and then done again, that is quite a claim. Pretty much every brand I can think of has had a stab at this genre and in general they are pretty good but they don’t ever bring anything new really. What can Butter London do to make us feel all excited about them again?

Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon Shades

I absolutely love these names – they are properly British. I think Ruby Murray is my fave name, because it’s slang for curry and I LOVE Curry!!
Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon Swatches
So the shades I have are Teddy Boy, Disco Biscuit, Primrose Hill Picnic and Tea with the Queen. Loving the formula!
Primrose Hill Picnic:
Tea with the Queen:
I’d wear all these shades, perhaps with the exception of Tea with the Queen, which is the kind of nude that doesn’t have quite enough pink in it to liven up my skin tone. I’m in love with Primrose Hill Picnic. Completely mental for pink lipstick at the moment!
The shades are lovely and long lasting and once the shine wears away, a stain and nicely hydrated lips are left behind. Fab! Also they smell slightly fruity and feel slightly minty, just slightly. They are very nice to wear.
The Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayons cost £15 each which I don’t think is a bad price. Find Butter London HERE They will be are available in the UK at the end of April 2015. They are already online in the US.
