I'm most keen on the pinky-peach of Butter London Keen! This crème shade has a peachy-clean feel perfect for spring. Peach shades can be difficult for me to wear; however, the generous dose of pink within Keen makes it look more natural against my skin tone.
I've painted out some comparison swatches so you can get a better look at my Butter London Boho Rock shades! You can see how Butter London Keen is more peach than pink when compared to NARS Trouville (click for review) and Essie Van D'Go. It's also slightly muted in comparison. I think it really helps to see Butter London Trallop swatched against Butter London Shandy (click for review) and Butter London Tea with the Queen, as nudes can really run a gamut. You can see it's warmer, darker, and less peach than Shandy, while it's lighter and less pink-brown than Tea with the Queen. Butter London Lucy in the Sky is quite unique. You can see it's cooler and more taupe when compared to the warm gold shimmer of Butter London Marbs (click for review). However you can see that it's darker and earthier than a platinum gold like SpaRitual Cassiterite (click for review).
Overall I find the Butter London Boho collection (Spring 2014) shades shown here to be a nice new take on neutrals and naturals for spring. Naturally, I gravitate towards the peachy-pink of Butter London Keen; however, I definitely see Butter London Trallop and Lucy in the Sky finding their way into my spring rotation as well!

Lucy in the Sky is really cool! Nice and sparkling! I actually don't wear neutrals that often. When given the choice, it seems like I always reach for darker and wackier shades!ReplyDelete

Hi Rach, gorgeous, right?Delete
Ooh Peachy Keen looks so pretty! Do you remember how many coats this was? I have an Orly that's a similar color but the formula isn't great and it takes three-four coats because of the streaky factor :(ReplyDelete
Keen is my favorite, so perfectly pastel coral, it's such a feminine and delicate shade!ReplyDelete
