The past few days have been humid, so much so that I am starting to loathe everything summer has to offer. It’s no joke getting sick (and rushed to ER once for heat exhaustion) I tell ‘ya. On a brighter note, it’s the umpteenth time to rock bold hues like nobody’s biz. Now that’s certainly music to my ear.
Shine out loud says butterLondon. Shine and stand out echoes zilla. Whatever manner you choose, own the stage and strut with unapologetic confidence.
Let’s start with le lips. Aptly named Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon, Ladybird is red orange with enviable pigmentation and glossy finish. It has commendable full five-hour wear time. It’s quite hydrating but feels waxy on application. It comes with a built-in sharpener, you just have to remember which cap to use to cover the tip, otherwise you’d be frustrated as I was when I accidentally smashed the crayon. Brain fart, it’s not a myth, haha!
If you’re not into loud puckers, why not paint your nails bright red orange. Also called Ladybird, this nail polish is opaque in one pass minus unsightly streaks. I’m not a nail blogger, I suck at nail art, I can’t even paint my right nails with precision. Regardless, I am proud to show you my summer vibrant nails!
Makeup is all about balance and harmony. With bright lips and tips, neutral eye makeup is the most obvious choice for moi. Usually, it’s just mascara and tight-line, just like this uniquely-shaped mascara called Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer (Ulta exclusive). Domed body and ball tip? let me tell you more about this sorcery!
The rounded tip makes it easy to coat inner lashes, at least based from my experience. This mascara also gave my lashes some drama but what I appreciated mostly was the “magical power” it rendered my lifeless lashes, “thou shall not droop, smudge or melt unto zilla even on the tenth hour. *pats wand on lashes*
The Wink Eye Pencil Crayon is creamy-soft and easy to use, no tugging of sorts. Unfortunately it did budge and while it didn’t majorly stain my under eyes, it melted nonetheless.
Have you tried butterLondon’s makeup line?

SO MANY PRETTIESSSSS
Ladybird lippie looks sooo much better on you than on me! lol. I did love the feel of it, though. I need to try it in other colors.
Girl, you are so radiant, I just love it when you wear bright lippies! That mascara wand looks super intriguing, too.
WOWZA, twinsy– these look amazing on you!!!!!! I have never tried their makeup line!
Oooh, jealous that you got the eye pencil too, lol! Ladybird is a fabulous shade. It looks great on you too!!
Love butter polishes always! That mascara brush looks really cool! Those darn inner corner lashes, haha – gets me every time!
I loveeee this color! Wow! I also like that it has a shiny finish! Very pretty!
Beautiful look! I kind of dig the lip color matching the nails, and I am not normally a matchy matchy kind of person.
Nonie Creme was one of the first people that helped me out when I started beauty blogging, so though she is no longer with Butter London, the brand has a special place in my heart. I will definitely be trying out some of their new beauty goodies – that mascara really caught my eye! Ha!
I think I know what my next mascara purchase is going to be.
You ROCK Ladybird!!!
You look like Summer.
I love this color! I am a sucker for orange lipcolors.
I love Butter London polishes and Ladybird is beautiful!
Matching nails and lips is so chic!
Hope you feel better.
Oooooo I didn't know Butter made products other than nail polishes. I'm going to put the mascara on my "need to try" list. I love that lip pencil too.
That nail polish is awesome!
These all look FABULOUS!

I have tried so far only Butter London nail polishes which in my opinion are really good ones.
I love that the lip crayon has it's own sharpener. Well played BL!

I'm pretty much obsessed and hoarding this mascara. I love it so much! The nail polish is beautiful too. I agree, it's such a nice formula! I had it on for DAYS, without chips. A miracle! The lip color is super pretty on you!
I love that hot red orange shade… It makes me thing of Hawaii!
Ladybird is such a gorgeous shade!
I love Ladybird on you! Such a great Summer shade!
I would love that mascara wand with the ball on the tip. That would make getting those lashes in the corners so much easier.
