Guest review by Vanditha (Skin Type : Combination, Skin tone : Medium)

All makeup lovers search for the perfect pink or red or nude lipstick. In one such quest, I was looking for a perfect brick red shade and I stumbled upon the Butter London Moisture Matte lipstick in old Blighty. I absolutely fell in love with the colour. It is a gorgeous brick red with brown undertones. This suits Indian skin tones very well.

Claims : Full coverage, Triple Butter Complex moisturizes, Non-drying formula, Maximum comfort

Ingredients : Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Silica, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Polyethylene, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, C20-40 Alcohols, Caprylyl Glycol, Mica, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Theobroma Grandiflorum Seed Butter, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Benzyl Benzoate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Parfum (Fragrance), Tin Oxide, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 15850 (Red 7 Lake), CI 45410 (Red 27 Lake), CI 19140 (Yellow 5 Lake).



The formulation is very creamy, glides like “butter” on the lips. Very opaque coverage and has no particular smell – neither good nor bad. This is a moisture matte lipstick and hence it is very moisturizing plus the color payoff is very good. Lasting power I would say it would last for a good 4 to 5 hours and even after that it leaves a slight tinge behind.


Packaging is very simple and classy. It is heavier than any other normal lipstick, but for me it is not a big deal.


Pros :

  • Creamy matte, so does not dry out the lips
  • Gorgeous shade
  • Very good colour payoff

Cons :

  • Pricey

Verdict : A

Price :  $ 22

Recommendation : If you are looking for a unique matte shade, you can definitely invest in this one.
