September 2018 Butter London Mystery Bundle Review
Plush Rush Satin Matte Lipstick in Thrilled, Full-Size! Retail Value $22
Right off the bat, I fell in love with the gorgeous floral packaging of this lipstick, and I wasn’t disappointed once I opened up the box! The lipstick is closed by a magnet lid, and Thrilled is a such a gorgeous shade of pink-toned mauve. I wasn’t expecting it, but this lipstick also has some plumping ingredients that caused some lip tingling. It didn’t hurt (some plumping lipsticks do), and this lasted up until my next meal before needing to be reapplied.
Glazen Eye Gloss in Moonshine, Full-Size! Retail Value $24
This is actually the first time I have tried butter London’s eye gloss, and it is a product I was excited to see when I opened my box. The texture is really like a thick pudding, and I think applying this with your finger is the way to go. The end result was a gorgeous shimmering taupe that was super comfortable to wear!
Here it is swatched above the lipstick.
This mascara brush reminds me a lot of the benefit Roller Lash mascara because it has a tiny baby comb that you use to literally comb your lashes to build up length and volume. On my lashes, I noticed that my lashes were way longer, but not necessarily more volumized than any regular mascara. I am still a big fan, however!
Patent Shine 10x Nail Lacquer in Yummy Mummy, Full-Size! Retail Value $18
Yummy Mummy is one of the OG shades from Butter London (I had a bottle in the same packaging as Ruby Murray!). It is a gorgeous cool beige shimmer that makes for a great neutral nail color, and this specific formula comes with a dense, curved brush that covered almost my entire nail in one swipe. At first, I didn’t realize what the “patent shine” claim of this polish meant—on first application it was just as shiny as Ruby Murray, but not any shinier. It turns out that this is formulated differently with products like diamond power, with the goal actually being to make the shine last longer.
Trend Nail Lacquer in Ruby Murray, Full-Size! Retail Value $15
This nail polish is the OG Butter London packaging and comes with a longer brush that’s on the narrow side. I was able to control the polish application with easy, and I absolutely love this deep berry red. And like Yummy Mummy, this polish is vegan and 8-free!
Signature File & Buffer – Retail Value $5
There is no such thing as too many nail files in my book, and I adore the signature floral design. The grit on the file is only 180, which is great for gentle shaping without being too rough.
Nail Scrubbers, 5 ct – Estimated Value $5 (buy a pack of 10 for $10)
I love pre-moistened nail polish removing wipes like these ones! They make removing nail polish so convenient and easy, and I don’t have to search my apartment trying to remember where I put the cotton balls. Unfortunately, I will say that these did not live up to the claim that one wipe removes the polish from all ten nails—I ended up using two to remove the Ruby Murray on my left hand and Yummy Mummy on my right. Once the wipe finished the fourth nail it really lost steam, and removing the 5th nail was a challenge.
The Verdict: I loved this mystery bundle! For $31.99 ($25.99 + $6.99) and a promised value of $101, I got to try an estimated $99 worth of products from the entire array of offerings available from Butter London. I am always happy to own more Butter London nail polishes, and I am impressed with the shine and performance of the eye glaze. All of the other items were of good quality and will be used—I am a happy camper!
