butter LONDON products used in Project Runway Junior

Recently on Project Runway Junior, celebrity makeup artist Scott Patric created a neutral, glowing makeup look using butter LONDON products! The overall look was vibrant and natural, with subtle hints of metallic bronze, gold, and copper.  Some of the items used to create this look are shown above!

True To Form BronzerClutch Palette

True To Form Swatches, butter LONDON BronzerClutch Palette

The butter LONDON True To Form BronzerClutch Palette features three neutral colors of bronze in varying finishes and depth.  This palette is designed beautifully, featuring an intricate geometric design on the case.  Why so much detail into the appearance?  This palette is reusable!  The frame can be lifted and refill pans can slide in and out.  Not a fan of three bronzers in one palette?  You can replace with eyeshadow or blush!

True To Form BronzerClutch Palette swatches from left to right:  Sun Kissed is a deep coppery bronze with a metallic finish.  Sun Baked is a warm terracotta with a matte finish.  Sun Shadow is a warm toasty brown that’s ideal for contouring.  Finally, at the far right is the highlight shade, Gold.

Speaking of the highlight shade…  The highlighter in the butter LONDON Bronzer Clutch comes in pen form!  The On the Glow Pen in Gold is tucked into a compartment of the clutch, and can be applied atop the cheekbones to really add that golden goddess glow!  Retail price for the BronzerClutch Palette $39.  On The Glow Pens are available in multiple colors, so if another catches your fancy you can buy it stand-alone for $12.

butter LONDON Free Fall Plush Rush Lip Gloss

Free Fall Swatch, Plush Rush Lip Gloss by butter LONDON

Free Fall Swatch, Plush Rush Lip Gloss by butter LONDON

The lips featured in the Project Runway Junior fashion show were neutral, but not invisible!  Free Fall Plush Rush Lip Gloss by butter LONDON is neutral with a hint of a berry shade and a subtle sexy shimmer.  I’m crazy about this decadent formula, and while it contains a plumping effect I detected zero tingling.  Retail price is $20.  STEAL ALERT! butter LONDON offers a duo of Free Fall Plush Rush gloss and Plush Rush Lipstick in Buzzed for only $30!

Spark Swatch, butter LONDON Glazen Eye Gloss

Bronzed Swatch, butter LONDON Glazen Eye Gloss

The focal point of the entire look was butter LONDON Glazen Eye Gloss.  The molten “Bronzed” shade shown above makes big impact when used as part of a neutral eye.  The unique butter LONDON Glazen Eye Gloss formula applies creamy, then quickly dries for to long-wearing intense color.  There are a handful of colors to try, including one named Oil Slick that’s now on my short list.  Retail price is $24.

If you think only red lipstick makes a splash, you need to check out NARS Breaking Free lipstick.  This orangy-peach shade is matte and very opaque.  It is such an incredible shade to pair with a tan or darker complexion.  The other lipstick in this collection is named Kiss Me Stupid, described by the brand as a burnt sienna.  Retail price is $28 per lipstick.

NARS Asphalt Jungle Lip Gloss, NARS Wildflower 2017

NARS Asphalt Jungle Lip Gloss, NARS Wildfire 2017

One of my favorite items from this makeup collection is NARS Lip Gloss in Asphalt Jungle.  NARS Lip Gloss in general is such a buttery, decadent-feeling product.  I love it in just about every color, but this neutral shade is a deep brown that leans a bit plum laced with a subtle deep pink shimmer.  It’s such a unique twist on a standard neutral color.  One other shade is available in this collection, a deep earthy red named Aragon.  Retail  price is $26 per lip gloss.
