Today I have a gorgeous lip product for you that is actually a new product to me. It is the butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon in Ladybird. I’ve previously used butter LONDON’s nail polish, but never their makeup, so when I was sent some makeup items from them, I was eager to try them out. “Ladybird” comes in a traditional crayon-like formula. It is a thick pencil that comes with a sharpener on the cap for easy sharpening on the go. I was instantly drawn to the bright orange-red color, as well. There is something very classic and sexy about a good red lip. I’ve got full swatches and my thoughts inside!
Ladybird is a bright orange-red. I have to say, they got the name of the product right when they call it “Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon,” because having a sharpener built into the cap of the product is amazing. So many times I have owned makeup products that need to be sharpened, and I have no sharpener with me. It doesn’t add any unnecessary bulk to the product either.
Ladybird is incredibly opaque and creamy. I was very impressed by how just one swipe of the crayon put down rich color. It was also beautifully smooth on my lips. My lips were a bit chapped and this made them look hydrated, smooth, and luscious again! Apparently, this product has Mango Seed Oil and Marula Oil in it to keep your lips moisturized. I definitely noticed a huge difference without having to exfoliate my lips beforehand. Though this product is in crayon form, I would definitely say it has the opacity and formulation of a lipstick or lip lacquer. It’s very pigmented and will go on evenly with just a few swipes. The crayon tip makes it very simple to draw perfect lip lines, as well.
I always like to show how the product looks against my actual skin tone. “Ladybird” was very flattering. I would definitely call this a warm red, and it has quite an orange-based pull to it, almost like a tomato red. For this reason, I think it will work well on a variety of skin tones.
Overall, I am a big fan of “Ladybird” in terms of color. It’s flattering and a really lovely color for the summer, especially with a glow on the skin. I’m also a new fan of the butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon’s in general now! Since I know them typically as a nail polish company, I was skeptical at first. After seeing how pigmented, smooth, and creamy this product was, I would definitely try other shades.
butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon in Ladybird is available at Ulta stores nationwide and online at butter LONDON’s website here. Each lip crayon retails for $20.00USD. There are 8 shades total, including “Ladybird.”
