Butter London Gets Into the Matte Game

I guess I pretty much expect a super flat look when I see the word “matte” in any lipstick name, however, this truth seems to only be when it comes to liquid lipsticks. I recently tried BUTTER LONDON’s new LIPPY Moisture Matte Lipsticks ($22 @ So how did they do? Click after the pic to find out!


I was surprised at the long the colors lasted on my lips and how not matte the colors looked on my lips, at least not the matte I have become accustom to lately, which would be the nails-down-a-chaulkboard-matte-dry-but-I-wear-it-because-it-lasts kind.

And they were just not shiny like most lipsticks but what should be noted is that I could touch my lips with my finger without transferring all the color onto it; little bit but not as much as a regular lipstick.

Primrose Hill Picnic (neon pink)


Come to Bed Red (blue-based red)


Mush (dark nude coral)


MacBeth (coral)

From L to R in both pics above: Primrose Hill Picnic, Come to Bed Red, Mush, MacBeth

And because these formulas are super thin, make sure you give your lips a good exfoliation before applying as these will magnify rough lip skin. Color picks: Come to Bed Red and MacBeth. 

Will any of these shades go on your list to pick up?

Disclosure: Samples of these items were provided for review purposes.

I love the coral


Hi Inessa! Coral is always such a great shade on lips.
