butter LONDON introduces LIPPY + spring/summer '12 polish collection

for spring/summer 2012 butter LONDON has released a gorgeous collection of polishes. in addition, they've entered the gloss game with a new line of lip lacquers called...LIPPY!

slang in britain, the term lippy refers to someone who makes impertinent or cheeky remarks. the dictionary also says it means impudent and fresh...

because one of the big trends seen on the runways during the spring/summer '12 shows was a "matchy/matchy" look {not just with fingers and toes but also lips}, what was once thought to be a bit outdated reemerged in a fresh, bold way. the look is deliberate, sometimes clashing with the pops of neon clothing, and definitely a gorgeous compliment to current trends.

LIPPY includes 5 high-pigmented shades ~ Primrose Hill Picnic {fuchsia pink}, Trout Pout {peach-cantaloupe}, Yummy Mummy {medium beige nude}, Snog and Teddy Girl.

Snog and Teddy Girl

free of parabens, petroleum, phthalates, sulphates, or bismuth, LIPPY is definitely pigmented and it's sticky. if you like a thicker, long-wearing gloss, you'll enjoy these. Teddy Girl {a retro, bublegum pink} isn't a flattering shade on me, but Snog {a happy, hot pink} offered my lips the pop of color that's bold and daring without taking me into my uncomfortable red lip zone {try as i might, i'm just not a red lip gal}.

the new spring/summer '12 collection features 5 new fabulous shades:

Bossy Boots ~ a beautiful neutral, opaque pistachio green 
 Knackered ~ a shear, twinkling oyster shade, flecked with micro glitter particles
Slapper ~ a truly teal lacquer, bold and gorgeously bright
Disco Biscuit {not swatched}~ tropical hot pink with an undercurrent of tiny iridescent glitter particles
Trout Pout ~ an opaque cantaloupe, pale and retro

this is such an amazing collection of shades, all of them unique and wearable. love, love, love! if you're a butter LONDON fan, chances are you already have a few {or all!} of these new polishes in your collection.

I've started seeing these polishes around more frequently, I wonder if the Lippy will be available in all stores.

Thanks for the heads up! :]
