Butter London Cheeky Cream Blush Naughty Biscuit

*press sample

Hi everybody!  I'm pretty stoked about all the exciting things happening at Butter London, aka my favorite nail polish company.  You may or may not have heard that they've branched out into color cosmetics.  Those wonderful polish-matched lippies were just the tip of the iceberg and now they've got a full-fledged collection, full of bold and classic colors alike.  This week, I'll be featuring a small smattering of the colorfulness in store and I'm kicking it off with one of their new Cheeky Cream Blush colors, Naughty Biscuit.

The case is slick, glossy, and luxe, and contains a mirror.

Butter London Cheeky Cream Blush Naughty Biscuit

Naughty Biscuit is a healthy looking pinky-nude cream blush with a deceptively demure package appearance.  It's quite pigmented and gives the vital, natural glow of someone who's just done something vigorous (like running bleachers...).  I feel like there's a bit of a learning curve in applying cream blushes.  Butter London suggests this be applied with your fingertips rather than a brush, and after having done both, I concur.  A brush deposits way too much color and you'll end up using your fingers to blend, anyway.

Here's Naughty Biscuit, swatched on my forearm, one swipe with my index finger.  The formula is super creamy and blendable, giving you plenty of time to work if you've applied a little too much, which is easy to do, even when using your fingers.  It's best to use a light touch.  I swipe the color once with my ring and pinky, and blend onto the apples of my cheeks up to my hairline.

Naughty Biscuit is a really versatile color.  Because of its neutrality, it can be used with a bold eye or lip for a dramatic look, but its saturated color plays perfectly with minimal eye and lip color for a blush as centerpiece look.  You've probably read at some point that it's best to put the focus on one feature at a time-- if you're looking for a bright, flushed cheek as your highlight, Naughty Biscuit is perfect.  (Obvi that's not what I did here... that lip color is one of Butter London's new Tinted Balms.  Stay tuned for that write up).

Naughty Biscuit and the rest of the Cheeky Cream Blushes retail for $20, which might seem a little steep.  If you're used to cream blushes, though, you'll fall in love with the formula, and if you're not used to them, this is a great place to start.  The color is beautifully workable and buildable and really perfect for any occasion.

Naughty Biscuit is available for sale at Ulta and on butterlondon.comLike Butter London on facebook to stay abreadth of specials and new releases.

Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!

    1. It really is a great color; I'm so pleased with it! I think you'd really enjoy it. I just got into cream blushes this year, looking for something a little more dewy for summer.

    1. Aw, really? I mean, *really*? Because my skin's been such a point of consternation for me lately. I threw out so many photos before deciding on that one. And there you all go, making me blush again, lol :}

    2. Yes, really. I get compliments on my skin all the time, so I guess that makes me qualified to recognize good skin on other people, LOL...I'm gonna say it does anyway, because it was my first thought when I saw that flawless cheek. :D

  8. Hi Liesl - GOSH you look BEAUTIFUL!!! This blush suits you very well. I love those softer shades of pink or coral or peach but have to admit that cooler tones suit my skin tone better. I think it is great that BL ventures into face make-up and if their quality of polishes are transferred into the mane-up area it sure will turn a total success!!! The price might look steep, I agree but then a blush is not as quickly emptied like mascara or eyeliner so the pay-off sort of justifies, no? I very much look forward to your review of the other prodects - have a wonderful day ❤

    1. Awww, thanks, sis ♥♥ So far, the blush is definitely consistent with BP quality... I think I read about them being comparable to Chanel cream blushes somewhere. A blush is definitely more easily justified as a luxury item purchase. I have yet to hit pan on any of my currently worn shades. Wonderful day to you, too! *hugs*

  9. That shade is stunning on you, Liesl! I love how pigmented the color is. I've been curious about BL's venture into color cosmetics, so I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your BL reviews! :D

    1. Just one more cosmetic review, for now :) I love how pigmented it is, too. It just feels fabulous going on and it's so fun to blend around, like I'm playing with face paints.

  10. This looks pretty on you. I don't wear much makeup at all, but I could do something like this, I think. Is cosmetics something new for Butter London or am I such a polish fiend and only noticed the polish? lol

    1. They just launched a full lineup of color cosmetics. Some of the colors are pretty out there but the blushes and lippies definitely have something for everyone. It is entirely possible that you are that big of a polish fiend, though ;)
