The really cool and innovative thing about the makeup line that Butter London has created is that everything is customizable. I recently received an eyeshadow clutch and blush and bronzer singles. I learned that I can actually remove some of my eyeshadows from my “clutch” and replace them with these blush and bronzers. I LOVE THAT!
I received the bronzer in the shade Sun Baked. I was really impressed with this bronzer – the formula is very smooth and blendable and I love the warm brown color. I tend to enjoy warmer bronzers because I usually just like to bronze up my skin instead of doing any heavy contouring. This bronzer is 0.13 oz and retails for $15. HOWEVER, it is currently on SALE at Ulta for only $9!
I received the blush in Violet and immediately thought to myself “I’m never going to wear this”. I swatched it on my hand and it didn’t show up at all. However, this is one of those “magical” blushes that looks completely different on the cheeks than it does in the pan or swatched. It doesn’t look purple at all. Overall, the quality is really good and you cannot beat the price (also on SALE for $9 at Ulta). To be honest, if I was ordering blushes for myself I would have chosen one of the other two shades (Hibiscus or Tiger Lily) so I may end up ordering these for myself during the sale. I think it would be fun to have a complete blush clutch with 3 completely different shades.
The downside is that you need to buy one of their “clutches” to store your products in. On top of that, all of their clutches com pre-filled with products so they retail for $39. However, I have actually been keeping my blush and bronzer in the original packaging that they came in. First of all, it’s actually cute. Second of all, it’s very compact so I have actually been carrying them in my purse for touch-ups. Also, these products look like they would be very easy to de-pot and stick in a Zpalette but I personally haven’t tried that yet.
Overall, this blush and bronzer are really good. I will probably end up using the bronzer more than the blush due to the shade of blush that I received. The only negative is that if you want to buy one of these products (and you do not want to depot it or use the original packaging) then you need to buy a Shadow Clutch. I would highly recommend taking advantage of the sale and trying out one of these products!
