butter LONDON Bespoke Color Cosmetics

***Products provided for review.  All opinions are my own.***

Hey all. Today I have my first makeup post ever on Polished Cousins!  Be kind to me...I'm new at this.  I was so excited when I heard that butter LONDON launched a makeup line because everyone knows about our bL love affair here at Polished Cousins!  Here is a little about the new Bespoke Color Cosmetics Collection from butter LONDON.  


The Bespoke Colour Cosmetics collection introduces WINK Mascara (6 Shades, $20 each), WINK Cream Eye Shadow (6 Shades, $18 each), WINK Eye Pencil (6 Shades, $18 each), LIPPY Tinted Balm (6 Shades, $20 each), and CHEEKY Cream Blush (4 Shades, $20 each). Along with the new cosmetics, five new Nail Lacquer shades ($15 each) will also be added to butter LONDON’s famous collection of nail colour.

The collection launched August 1st on Ulta.com and butterlondon.com.

I received a sample of the WINK Cream Eye Shadow in Sun Kiss, a muted gold shimmer.  I'm really in love with this gorgeous gold shimmer and the packaging is stunning.  I wasn't in love with the doe foot applicator so after I applied it on my lids, I smoothed it out with a flat eye shadow brush.  It gives just a slight wash of gold shimmer, very pretty.  I will probably use it as a highlighter or blend it with another gold shadow since it is so light.





I also received a sample of the WINK Eye Pencil in Brown Sugar, a chocolate brown creme.  While this may look like an ordinary brown eyeliner, this baby has staying power.  I swatched this on my (hairy? wtf) inner arm around 7 pm and it was still there at noon the next day.  Let's not discuss how often I shower.  Thanks.  But seriously!  Not even smudged.  I had to use makeup remover to get it off.  Win!




I really don't think I could have asked for better samples to do my first makeup review on!  I loved them!  Do you have any of the new butter LONDON Bespoke Color Collection?  If so, let me know your thoughts!

  1. That eyeliner sounds like a winner! This may sound silly, but I'm glad to hear it came off with makeup remover -- sometimes that doesn't even work for smudge-free stuff!

  6. The liner looks great :) If you like black liner def try the Union Black Jack one--its staying power is on par with other high-end brands, too!

  9. Lovely first makeup review.
    I love the sun kiss cream shadow as a base for other eyeshadows (gold/bronze or even colored shadows). You're right it's a bit light, and thanks for the tip on using a shadow brush to even it out. :-)
