Butter London Nail Polish in Cake-Hole, Pimms (from the Colour Clash collection) & 3 Lippy Shimmer Lip Glosses in Tickety Boo, Wag, Punch Up - swatches, pics, reviews

Hello, Beautiful!

I have two new shades of Butter London nail polish from the Colour Clash Collection to share with you: Cake-Hole and Pimms. I also have three new Lippy Shimmer Lip Glosses from Butter London. Love the polishes, not really a fan of the new shimmer Lippys. Check out my full reviews, as well as all the product info, after each set of pics.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Kisses

The new Butter London Colour Clash Collection has six fun, bright and summery shades. I have two of them: Cake-Hole and Pimms. But honestly, I love the entire collection!

As with most Butter London polishes, I love the formula and quality.

Here are the shade descriptions of the two I have...
  • Cake-Hole: an opaque, nearly neon pink. A pink creme so bright, it can't be wrong! USA Only color! Cake-Hole is a slang word for mouth.
  • Pimms: an opaque, sunflower yellow creme. Pimms is a gin-based tradition as its finest.. this refreshing beverage is almost as popular as English tea.
I think I love Cake-Hole a lot... like kind of obsessed with it. Pimms is a beautiful yellow too. I love that they are both opaque and both are bright and summery shades. Love wearing Cake-Hole on my toes! Would recommend checking out the collection!

These are the new shimmer version of the Butter London Lippy Lip Glosses. Available in 6 shades. I have three, which I'll describe below...

Description of the shades:
  • Tickety Boo: a sheer, blush shimmer lip gloss. Tickety Boo is a saying for when something is going well.
  • Wag: a sheer, peachy pink shimmer lip gloss with gold flecks. Wag is a term used primarily by the British tabloid press to describe the wives and girlfriends of high-profile footballers.
  • Punch Up: a sheer, strawberry shimmer lip gloss with gold flecks. Punch Up is a quarrel or violent argument.
Honestly, I wasn't a huge fan of these. They are too sheer for my liking at the moment; I seem to be liking more pigmented, bright shades. Also, they were slightly tacky in finish - which I don't mind if the color is pretty but these hardly produce any color and all three shades I have look nearly identical on the lips. Also, I want to mention that my lips were stained from a bright pink lipstick I was wearing that day, so any pink color my lips do have is from that, not from the glosses themselves -- which basically all look the same on my lips. I'm also not a huge brush-applicator fan (I prefer a doe-foot applicator), but this brush actually applied the product really nicely.

On the plus side, they are very shiny and glossy! But not sure I could recommend these; for $20 I know of other glosses that are shimmery and have a pretty color payoff without the tacky/sticky finish. I haven't tried the regular Butter London Lippys yet, so I may have better luck with those, but these new Lippy Shimmer Lip Glosses are not a hit in my book. If you like sheer glosses, with shimmer and lots of shine, then you may love these. 

Now let me know what you think...
