butterLONDON Glitz and Glamour Beauty Clutch Lives Up to It’s Name!

glitz-glamour

Purchased by me

butterLONDON entered the beauty industry 10 years ago with their fabulous nail lacquer using cheeky British slang names. The brand has always worked hand-in-hand with the world’s top designers and have expanded to include cosmetics in the line. I admit I was skeptical if a nail polish brand could do makeup but I have to say I’ve been impressed! Their cream blushes, eyeliners and lip products are among the best in my stash.

Last fall butterLONDON introduced the shadow clutch, a customizable eyeshadow palette that received rave reviews. Building upon that success, in 2016 they released the limited edition Beauty Clutch ($39). This is another customizable palette that can accommodate not only eyeshadows but also blush and bronzer to create a multi-use palette. I puchased the pre-made Beauty Clutch in Glitz & Glamour. There was another warm palette but it is sold out. If anyone knows the name, please enlighten me.

butterLONDON’s Beauty Clutch allows me to change out any of the pieces to create my own one-of-a-kind beauty wardrobe. The packaging is the epitome of  glam: a bedazzled shimmering gold with a full size mirror that will add a touch of luxury to any vanity. It really is elegant and the perfect size to carry in your bag.

Glitz and Glamour includes four primer-infused, buildable shadows, a lightweight ultra-velvety blush and a portable highlighter pen.

  • Frosted Rose, a matte petal pink

  • On The Glow Pen in Moonstone, a shimmery champagne powder

The butterLONDON Glitz and Glamour Beauty Clutch is full of well coordinated,  cool toned purples. Each is perfectly pigmented, long lasting and blends easily. The eyeshadow formula is infused with primer so no separate primer is needed. The texture of all these powder products are silky smooth and glide on effortlessly.

Pashmina, my favorite of the palette,  is such a pretty and unique shade: it’s a shimmering rosy purple taupe that applies like a dream. Frosted Rose is a pale pink. While not especially different, the texture is so velvety smooth for a matte, it’s still impressive. Tiara is a lovely satin dusty lavender and Bronzite, is a brown/burgundy with beautiful flecks of gold. Bonzite also makes a pretty liner. Primrose is a delicate dusty rose that is flattering to all skin tones. Rather than include a brush, the palette includes a highlighting pen in Moonstone, a pretty white gold.

My only complaint is the the highlighting pen is a bit difficult to use. The pen has a pump-like dispenser but it only seems to work when you put the lid on. It dispenses just enough for one swipe so you have to keep putting the lid on and off which is a pain. It is however, a nice touch to finish the look.

The palette comes with an application guide for two looks: glamour and glitz. This is the glamour look:

Frosted Rose on the brow bone, Tiara on the lid, Pashmina in the crease and Bronzite to line. Primrose applied to the cheeks and Moonstone to the upper cheek bone, above the brows and on the inner corner of the eyes.

Please forgive the hair–see what happens when I go for a “sleek” look??

Bottom Line: the shades in the butterLONDON Beauty Clutch Glitz and Glamour Palette are very flattering and the packaging is so glam! The quality is top notch and better still, I can add more colors and/or switch them out to make different palettes. This palette is on sale for only $24 right now at ULTA Beauty so hurry!
