I read more than a couple reviews saying this shade is a "let-down" even before my purchase, but I still had get it. :)
This glittered but muted grey/lilac color looked very unique to me, not that I follow any of the Royal Affairs.
It is for sure the name and the time when it was released contributed a lot to the huge success of this color, though.
*description from Beauty.com*
Colour - A soft greige littered with lilac glitter for the perfect marriage of fashion and fun
Definition - One day my prince will come, and I will wrap him around my tiny, sparkling fingers
(eh, the definition sounds a little creepy to me.)
indirect natural lighting
I must admit the application is not the best and far from my previous experience with Butter London Lacquers, although it is quite forgivable since I have yet to find a polish of jelly finish & tons of glitters that applies nicely. ;p
The cool and light base color itself would suit better for warmer months, but it is wearable and festive for the season with pretty glitters.
As you see in the pictures, the color appears still sheer after 2 coats. You might want to go for 3 coats to achieve the bottle color.
Don't forget the topcoat cause it will be gritty and somewhat matte without it!
Butter London's holiday 2011 collection is now available as well as gift sets.
This sure goes on my holiday shopping list. ;)
new renditions of pink and purple
How can I not..? ^-^;
and look at this adorable set!
Oh, I also noticed that these are made in USA and many of the new gift sets are not even available in UK although they spell it Grey and Colour on the website. lol
