butterLONDON Snog LIPPY and Nail Color

Hi lovelies!!

 Today's post will feature a little something different, LIPS!! Now, don't get mad (or excited?), LTHP will not be transitioning to make-up reviews as well as nail polish. I just do not have the time. But, I thought this was too cute not to share. As you may or may not know butterLONDON recently expanded their cosmetics line to include lip colors. They recently released Five different LIPPY colors to match some of their most popular, girly shades. This all goes hand in hand with the Spring trend of matching your Lips to your Tips and I'm kinda liking it, honestly.
 In the picture above I am wearing BL LIPPY and nail color in Snog. The glitter topper on my nails is Pretty and Polished in Valentino. It is pretty safe to say that I am obsessed with butterLONDON's LIPPY in Snog. I thought it was going to be too much or too bright for me, because I am pretty tame when it comes to my lip color. Surprise!!! I LOVE IT!! It is the perfect shade of Pinky Red for my skin tone. LIPPY goes on like a lipgloss but it is very heavily pigmented in a good way. LIPPY applies really well and it does not feel heavy or sticky on the lips. The staying power of BL LIPPIES is ridic!!! I can go pretty much a full day without re-touching my lip color when I wear LIPPY. The only "flaw" to LIPPY is that they are very heavily scented. Almost like a floral smell? I cannot really place it but it is strong, so if you are sensitive to smells I would not recommend LIPPY colors. In the pic above I had been already wearing LIPPY for Three hours and had also eaten. Pretty good eh?! The color is quite more vibrant but even the "faded' version is still such a pretty flush of color on the lips.
 Snog nail color is a very vibrant shade of very HOT Pink. Approaching Red territory but not quite. Pardon these awful pictures but this color was not photographing accurately at all and this was the only way I could manage to show the actual shade. The formula on this sucker is AMAZING and perfect in Two coats. Needless to say... I LOVE this....

To see more pics of Snog and a side by side of LIPPY and the nail color just keep on reading :D

Again, sorry for the crap pic but the color is actually quite accurate in this pic. I'm not a fan of flash photos only because I don't really know how to take good photos with the flash. But these do the color justice. It is a great shade for Summer and already on my toes!

Here is LIPPY and the nail polish side by side. They are really close. LIPPY in Snog is just a *little bit* more muted than it's nail color version. I really like that BL took some of their gorg colors and made them into lip colors, right on time for Spring!

  1. The lippy is perfect! Definitely going to have to try and pick up a tube for myself. :)

  2. I love this! The colour looks fantastic on you, I will have to see if I can find one of these somewhere!

    Also your necklace in that picture is too cute :)

  3. That's after 3 hours? Ohmigosh! I saw these at Nordstrom the other day but thought, "Oh, I don't need another lip gloss." I might have to check them out again. Thanks for the heads-up on the fragrance. That might be the dealbreaker.

  4. I love Butters. This set might be my Easter treat to myself. Or a few of the new Zoyas. So hard to decide!! lol.

  5. These are gorgeous! Love that you can match lips to nails. XD

  6. This color looks good on you. Perfect color for summer.

  7. I LOVE that color! And to have a matching lip color...O.M.G. Wish list is officially expanded. (Again. :)

  8. Hi Cristina! Just wondering if you are wearing Blend Creations' 'Birdie' Charmer Twitter necklace in the photo. Love them!


  9. Hi Cristina! We love us some BL polishes & we've been dying to purchase a new Lippy! Your review has now convinced me that I need to take the plunge. Now I just have to decide what color...?!?! ;)

  10. Love that combination of polish and sparkle.


  11. What a pretty color (for the lips AND the nails). It is definitely the perfect spring/summer color and it looks really good on you. I really love it with the glitter topcoat too.

  12. I already wanted one of the Lippys, but I'd read a bunch of so-so reviews and I'm so glad you posted one-- there aren't a lot out there! Since I had a 20% off coupon at Ulta, I decided to grab one (in Snog!).

    The staying power is awesome, but I have to say I'm pretty meh on it overall due to the perfumy scent. I don't find it super overpowering, but it's annoying and not particularly pleasant if you lick your lips. I hope BL decides to go back and do something about this, because otherwise I think the Lippy is awesome.

  13. Fantastic! Thank you for the review-I ran out and bought them both this weekend and you were totally right-the lip gloss is amazing and lasts FOREVER.
