Butter London Tutorial Review & Giveaway



Recently, I received this little package and was thrilled to find some Butter London products. A very thoughtful lady at BL sent me doubles of several products. DOUBLES!!! You know what that means, right?? GIVEAWAY.....

So, I will be giving away all four of the exact same products that were sent to me and featured in my video. You can watch the video here:



Or, you can just take my word for it when I tell you these are wonderful products.

Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara in Brilliant Black

The mascara is great. I would like to write the book, "Mascara for Dummies." It would totally apply to me and be full of pictures of my mistakes. Since my eyes are so small and my lids so flat, mascara ends up more on my skin than on my actual lids. Criteria for mascara involves small wands with unobtrusive bristles. This one takes the cake. The wand is small enough to get my lashes and the ball at the tip is great for perfecting and separating and also applying mascara to the lower lashes.  The mascara finish is luster like, so not shiny but definitely there.


Wink Eye Pencil in Union Black Jack

This eye pencil is like butter it is so soft and easy to apply. I have this in the shade Earl Grey as well and it is so pigmented and gel-like. Stays put once it's set as it is waterproof and is supposed to wear for 24 hours. I've never worn eye pencil for 24 hours, but I like the notion very much. Takes less than a minute to set completely and washes of easily.  

Nail Lacquer - Ladybird

The yellow tomato red color is wonderful for the warm months of summer. With a newborn, I have enough time for one coat of polish and that does not work too well for many of the bottles that I have on hand. This one works nicely, and I I find that a stroke of this nail polish is all it takes to create a beautiful jelly like nail coating. It even dries rapidly which is another great attribute. What can I say?! I need my hands!!

 Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon - Ladybird

I always love a good lip crayon. You can get easy precise application with one product instead of two, and the handiness of the attached sharpener. My husband said, "Every pencil should come with it's own sharpener. It saves so much time." He's right, of course he is referring to the everyday pencil and the search for the hand held sharpener. We mounted a pencil sharpener in our garage for our daughter when she started grade school, and even then no one wants to walk across the house and out there to sharpen a pencil. It just makes sense and saves time. 

This lip crayon is like Crayolas for grown-ups. The application is effortless and the formula is so moisturizing. I love a good red lip color. It is just so many things, it can be simple and unfussy, it can be avant garde and bold, and it can be dressy or casual. It does not matter how you wear it, it is just plain elegant. The days that I wear a red lip are the days that I get the most compliments on my skin, or my hair. Who doesn't want more compliments!?! I'm telling you, just wear red lipstick!!

MAC brush video is up! #pressrecord

MAC 137 & 221 Brushes

It always starts with my foundation. I needed foundation, so I get online to order some and I realize that MAC has a new collection out with some new brushes. The MAC is Beauty Collection debuted in March, around the time that I had a new baby. So it did not catch my attention until recently. I delayed ordering foundation until I could go into a Macy's and check out the new brushes.

I was amazed when I got my hands on them, the bristles are so fluffy and soft. They are so different from any of my other brushes and anything else that MAC makes. I researched these two particular ones for several weeks and have not found much information regarding them. Everyone seems to just reword the description that MAC uses on their website. So, since I added these guys to my collection, I thought I would share what I use them for in a video.



If your not into watching, I love these two brushes. 

The 137 is great for blush application, especially when using bright or very pigmented blushes. It can also be used for highlighting, setting, and contouring. I was even told by the MAC Makeup Artist that she uses it for contouring the eyelid, creating the crease. It is a little large for the likes of my eyelids, but it's an idea. 

The 221 is a great crease/contour creator. It will literally create the crease on your lid for you. If you have hooded eyelids like I do, then you will appreciate that very much. It has also been suggested that nose contouring would be a great little task for this brush. It is certainly compact and detail orientated enough for that. I just like how it fits where my crease should be and marks it for me.

I purchased these guys at a MAC counter inside Macy's. They were $42 and $24 respectively. There was also a third brush released in the MAC is Beauty Collection, a curved eye liner brush.

New brushes make me feel good!! 
Brushes are game-changers for me, they can change a life. :)

Recorded a new video, but never actually hit record. Trying again later, BUT, that long blending brush, aka MAC's new 137 did that to my cheeks! Perfect blush brush amongst other usage possibilities. @maccosmetics #137, #221, #brushes
