BUTTER LONDON Lippy Moisture Matte Lipstick


Butter London Lippy Moisture Matte Lipstick (0.14 oz) retails for $25 USD ($22 CAD) and is available in 12 shades. It said to be "a long-lasting, full coverage, ultimate color payoff lipstick in a velvety, non-drying matte finish."

Loved Up is described as a berry-red cream.
Macbeth is described as a bright coral cream. 
Ruby Murray is described as a deep berry cream. 
"Full coverage, ultimate colour payoff in a velvety matte finish. Specialized pigments extend colour wear. Long-lasting, non-drying formula does not feather or bleed. Revolutionary gel-capsule technology delivers colour and moisture for smooth, silky application and maximum comfort. Triple Butter Complex for rich, creamy, lasting moisture – Mango Seed Butter, Murumuru Seed Butter, and Cupuacu Seed Butter. Vitamin E and minerals smooth the lip surface for a flawless application. Subtly scented with creamy vanilla. Sleek, slim line metal component for easy application, control and portability."
The packaging is slim and luxurious with it's square design and black lacquer finish. These lipsticks have a subtle vanilla scent that can be noticed on initial application.

In a whole, the formula of these lipsticks is like nothing I've ever seen before. They have a matte finish while applying smoothly (almost creamy) and feeling velvety on the lips  it's a tough one to describe. Butter London says these have "revolutionary gel-capsule technology" that breaks down and releases pigments and moisture while applying. They have an ultra fine, almost gritty-feeling texture that does smooth out on the lips. As I said, they have a never-seen-before type of formula.

The formula is extremely light weight, comfortable to wear and all three shades left behind a vivid stain — as if the product hadn't worn off. These lipsticks are neither hydrating nor drying and last a long time on the lips, whether you're eating, drinking, talking... you name it, they'll last.

*These lipsticks were extremely hard to photograph the true colors. They all came off a lot warmer and more red than in real life.

Loved Up is a medium-dark, berry rose with warm undertones and a satin matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth and glided-on easily without tugging or dragging. It applied evenly, fully pigmented and opaque in a single swipe. This shade lasted +6.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
Macbeth is a light-medium, coral pink with warm, yellow undertones and a gold micro-sparkle. The texture was soft, smooth and glided-on easily. It applied evenly, fully pigmented and opaque. The fine micro-sparkle isn't noticeable once applied, it mostly just influences the color of the lipstick. This shade lasted +6.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
Ruby Murray is a medium-dark mauve with cool undertones and a creamy matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, creamy and glided-on easily. It applied evenly, pigmented and mostly opaque. Due to the creamier texture of this specific shade, I found myself applying two layers. It lasted +6 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)

Overall, these lipsticks are phenomenal. They offer opaque, rich lip color that doesn't feather, fade or require a lip pencil. Also, for being a matte lipstick they are rather forgiving when it comes to drier lips. Whether you're a matte lipstick fanatic or you're looking for the perfect introduction to mattes, these are definitely worth checking out!
