Lip crayons will forever have a special place in my heart. There is just something so… easy about them! I don’t know if easy is the right word but either way, I love me some chubby lip pencils and can’t seem to get enough of them.
butter LONDON recently released their Bloody Brilliant Lippy collection which contains 8 highly pigmented shades ranging from a soft nude to a deep berry and I’ve got 6 of the 8 colors to share with you today!
Each butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant crayon has a high gloss finish which, if we’re being honest, was the only thing I didn’t like about them. Don’t get me wrong – the formula is FANTASTIC and feels great on the lips but it would be nice to have a few matte shades to choose from. That all comes down to personal preference, though.
The pigmentation on each color is absolutely fantastic and I found that they each gave me opaque coverage in just a few swipes. One of the reasons why I love lip crayons so much is because they’re easy to use and they make touchups a breeze and these are no exception. Their packaging is also genius since it features a built in sharpener! I always seem to have trouble with jumbo sharpeners for some reason so the fact that each color has a dedicated sharpener rocks my world.
butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayons contain mango seed oil and marula oil to help keep lips soft and moisturized. Lately I’ve been having quite a difficult time with chapped lips (thank you, cold weather) so these feel really great on and don’t have a drying effect on the lips. The formula also has Niacinamide in it which helps to maintain the skin’s barrier for a smoother and more even lip tone.

Tea With The Queen: Nude Creme
Trout Pout: Light Coral Creme
Disco Biscuit: Bubblegum Pink Creme
Primrose Hill: Tropical Pink Creme
Teddy Boy: Rosy Creme
Ruby Murray: Berry Creme (only pictured below)
Overall I was really happy with each of these! The wear time was a few hours so I definitely didn’t get all day wear from them but I didn’t exactly expect to thanks to their soft texture and glossy finish. Luckily lip crayons are easy to toss into your bag for touchups on the go so maintenance is easy.
butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayons can be found at Ulta where each shade retails for $20.
Until next time 🙂
