Introducing LIPPY by butter LONDON. LIPPY is a range of long-wearing, lacquer-like lip glosses in shades to match their famous nail lacquers. Like the butter LONDON nail lacquers, LIPPY colours are rich and heavily pigmented for a look that is deliberate, high fashion, and luxe. LIPPY does not contain parabens, petroleum, phthalates, sulphates, or bismuth. If you’re being LIPPY, look the part.
This is definitely a lip LACQUER! It's thick, very pigmented and it lasts on the lips for hours. It provides a really high shine finish and wears down to a light stain. The LIPPY has a pretty tacky feeling, but once it warms into your lips it smooths out and that "sticky" feel goes away. I don't personally like this shade on me (I'm not one for neutral or nude colors), but I can see this being a great shade for my nude-lippie-loving readers!
I found this lip gloss to be quite thick, like a lip lacquer (which is kinda the point), very pigmented (almost like a lipstick), the applicator grabs a lot of product, but since it is pretty thick I had to redip the applicator a few times to get a full coverage of color on my lips. My favorite thing about the lip gloss is the staying power, it lasts hours and hours. The heavy formulation just clings to my lips and even with drinking and eating I still have the stain from the very pigmented color. The shine is high when first applied, then it settles down to a medium shine after an hour or two. I absolutely love this LIPPY and at $17 it's definitely a splurge item. Just based on the amazing experience with Primrose Hill Picnic, I'm planning on buying Snog soon!
My Lippy is called Secret Door, a gorgeous strawberry red. I love it, I wear it all the time, alone and on top of lipsticks. (When I apply it as a lipstick topper, I run the applicator over a piece of tissue, to wipe off any lipstick residue so it does not enter the gloss vellsel and chance the shade.) The Lippy Lipgloss is niiice. I was *honestly* expecting a sticky mess but it is not sticky. I don't care for the brush applicator, it feel like a nailpolish brush to me, I much prefer a terrycloth doe foot. I mention this because the applicator might make me not purchase this product in the future.
