Little did I know that when I became enamored with butter LONDON nail polish that it was only the beginning. Butter LONDON has come a long way from those days and I’m so happy about that. I have the pleasure of being the recipient of a butter LONDON Shadow Clutch Customizable palette and a few of the new Wardrobe Duos. Wait until you see these!
How does this work? Start with your choice of a SHADOW CLUTCH in either Natural Charm or Pretty Power. Expand it with the Wardrobe Duos to make your experience even better. A Shadow Clutch comes with 6 buttery soft eyeshadows that are removable so you can design a palette just for your needs. Lift the top that holds the shadows in place and slide out the individual colors, then slide back in the ones you want.
NATURAL CHARM ($39) is an earth tone palette with 6 shades of cream, beige, rose gold, khaki, chocolate and nude. The textures are mixed so that you have everything you need for a perfect eye. These shadows don’t contain any glitter and the sheen is subtle enough for all ages.
Top Row: Linen – Matte Vanilla, Quartz – Warm Beige Sheen, Camo – Dark Khaki Sheen
Bottom Row – Camel – Matte Nude, Citrine – Coral Sheen, Leather – Matte Chocolate Brown
Things I love about these eyeshadows:
1) The colors are beautiful and well pigmented. The only shade I’m not using much is Camel as it’s just not a Marcia shade.
2) These are primer infused. I’ve never heard of that before but I certainly appreciate it. The swatches on my arm were done without a separate primer using my finger. I did these in a single pass but heavily.
3) They blend easily and are oil-absorbing according to butter London. To be honest, I always wear an eyeshadow primer so I haven’t tried these on their own to test out this statement but they last an entire day on me without fading or creasing.
4) butter LONDON is a Cruelty Free company.
But I’m not done because butter LONDON has gone beyond the Shadow Clutch to personalize it for you. There are 4 Wardrobe Duos that you purchase separately to create change within the clutch you bought. You can use these beautiful shades without the clutch but it’s so much easier to slide them in and have them at the ready.
UP ALL NIGHT consists of a matte black and a soft golden sheen that I personally find fabulous. These two shades make a beautiful sultry eye on their own or used with the shades in the Shadow Clutch.
SASSY PANTS contains a soft pink sheen along with a fabulous deep purple sheen. I like to use pink with browns so this is a great addition to my original shadow clutch.
The colors in my two Wardrobe Duos are better than expected. They are rich, vibrant and lovely on the eye.
What I’ve enjoyed most about these butter LONDON shadows is the versatility with them. I’m able to not only change the palette at will but come up with half a dozen combinations of shadows that I enjoy. Long lasting and easy to blend eyeshadows are always in my list of recommendations and butter LONDON has joined that list at last. — Marcia
