The Fluff Report: Gettin' Lippy

Gettin' Lippy

butter lippy


Wine red lips are a fun Fall beauty trend. I tried Butter London's Lippy lip gloss in La Moss. It looked ten times darker in the tube than on my lips (as you can see above). It came out slightly more of a berry color than the oxblood I was expecting. I lined and filled my lips with a Bobbi Brown lip pencil in "raisin" which also should have given it a darker tint. Overall though, I think it's the right shade for me! Cranberry is best for fairer complexions, merlot compliments more olive tones and eggplant is best for darker skin tones. But I think we can all agree that nothing looks worse than chapped flaky dark lips so I use my Clarisonic skin cleaner for a few seconds to exfoliate which preps my lips for a flawless finish. Bonus: it has a vanilla smell to it. Double bonus: matching nail polish. Mwah...
