butter LONDON Primrose Hill Picnic Lippy and Lacquer

Hey guys! Today, I have a post that's a little different... My very first make up post! Whoa! Butter London was kind enough to send me a few of their Lippy shades and matching polishes to try out. I hope you like the pictures!

The set I have to show you today is Butter London's Lippy and polish in Primrose Hill Picnic (which totally makes me think of The Hunger Games).

Here's 3 coats of Primrose Hill Picnic... I really love the color! To be honest, this is the second time I've worn it. It's a very flattering shade! The formula was just a tad problematic... It tends to be a bit patchy, which was solved by the 3rd coat.

Here's a pic of me with the matching Lippy shade. Definitely brighter than what I would normally wear, since I'm more of a gloss-only kind of girl, but I have to admit that I really like the way this color looks on me! Especially now that I have a summer tan going on! I really like the way the Lippy applies... It's not too sticky, and feels very comfortable on! It also lasts quite awhile... I wore it to a work function one night, and I still had it on after almost 4 hours!

And here's the Lippy and matching polish together!

The polish is a bit brighter than the Lippy, but I think that's a good thing. I really like them together! Matching lips and nails is definitely a trend I could get into!

I hope you all enjoyed this review! To order this set for yourself, or to check out the other available shades, head over to butter LONDON's site!

Also, in case you missed it, don't forget that my pregnancy posts are now posted to my pregnancy blog, Z is for Zoey! Head over and give it a follow to see my WHOA belly (I'm in my third trimester now... 12 weeks left!) and the cute crafts that I've been making for our sweet baby girl!

***These products were sent to me for review in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinion.***

Zoya Tracie

Hey guys! I hope you're doing well today! I have a ton to do this weekend... I have a 5 day weekend, so Miss Zoey's nursery is getting an overhaul! We've got to paint the ceiling, spackle and paint the walls (PINK!)... And hopefully I'll get the curtains finished and hung! Yay! I'm so excited to finally be working on it... We only have 15 weeks left, after all... AHH!


Anyway, to the polish!! Here's one of the 6 colors I got in Zoya's Earth Day exchange this year... Zoya Tracie!

Zoya describes Tracie as "Faded, yellow-toned pistachio green with delicate silvery shimmer for a frosted pearl finish."  The formula on this one was a bit thick, but it evened out after the second coat. It was also a bit more slow-drying than other Zoya's that I'm used to, but it wasn't problematic. The color is absolutely gorgeous and flattering... I've gotten many compliments on it! Zoya sure does know how to do a great green!!


I know I promised 2 review posts... I got the pictures for one of them, and my SD card decided to eat the pictures. My computer wouldn't read my card, so I had to reformat it. SO, that's something else I'll be working on this weekend! I promise I'll have them to you soon! :)
