Butter London is a brand best known for its nail polishes but they have started to slowly (but surely) release makeup items as well. Among their current offerings are colored mascaras, eyeliners, and cream blushes. Being a total fan of cream blushes, I was eager to try out a new formula. The fact that I had a 20% discount code at B-Glowing also helped. I picked up the color Honey Pie, a gorgeous nude pink.
The compact is basic and standard, Butter London's white logo against shiny black plastic. The inside of the cardboard box has a beautiful floral print. While I appreciate those kinds of details as they make the product feel more luxurious, it seems like a waste because the outer packaging is meant to be thrown away. So, what about the product itself?
The consistency is very creamy. Honey Pie feels thin and liquid-y (very similar to the feel of Illamasqua Cream Blushes). The pigmentation is nice and the product is easy to blend.
It does not set to a satin or matte finish like a lot of cream blushes. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your skin type. It's ideal for dry skin as it remains dewy and will never accentuate dryness. Not ideal for oily skin or humid weather because it can feel too slippery.
Even though it's dewier than my most loved cream blush formulas (Stila, Bobbi Brown, Illamasqua), I still enjoy Butter London's formula very much. Except that it falls short on wear time. It starts fading after about 3 hours, which is abysmal for a cream formula.
Overall: Really nice formula and beautiful color. Less than impressive wear time. I do imagine it will wear better on dry skin types (mine is normal).
Let me know if you've tried any makeup items from Butter London. I actually have never tried any of their nail polishes. Ironic, because that's what they're famous for. Have a good day, lovelies!
