Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss

I can’t believe I’ve never tried anything from Butter London until recently. It’s a brand I’ve seen featured on blogs many times, but for some reason they’ve always stayed under my radar. I spotted the Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss feature in a YouTube video and I was instantly intrigued as I love cream eyeshadows, and the shades all looked stunning. After watching the video I looked online for where I could buy a Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss and I was surprised by the lack of stockists as I could only find Feel unique and/or the Butter London Amazon store. In the UK we only have six shades to choose from whilst the US has ten, but I opted for the shade Frosted as it looked like a shade I’d get a lot of use out of.

The Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss is £15 for 4.8g which isn’t a lot of product for the price but a MAC Paint Pot contains 5g and is £16.50 so it’s on par with other mid-range brands. It was so hard to choose a shade as I would honestly wear all six shades but I chose Frosted as I liked the description that it was a ‘sparkling rose gold eyeshadow’ which is definitely not new or unique to my collection, but it’s possibly my most worn kind of shade on a day to day basis alongside taupe eyeshadows.

The Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss is packaged within a plastic pot with a black lid. Inside the pot there is a little lid with a tab which you lift off, and it helps to keep the product contained within the pot due to the ‘wet’ consistency.
There isn’t an applicator which comes with the Eye Gloss like there is with the PUR Eye Polishes, where you get a mini silicone spatula and the formulas are very, very similar indeed. I have tried using my fingertips, makeup brushes and sponge tip applicators and I’ve found that the best method of application is your fingertips, but the sticky texture means you have to clean your hands after applying it and not simply using a tissue like you would with a typical cream eyeshadow.

Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in Frosted Review and Swatches

Frosted is such a strange shade as it looks so different on the eyes than it looks in the pot, and it changes colour again when you build it up. Inside the pot, Frosted looks like more of a gold shade, whereas when applied sheerly to the lids it’s a peach shade with subtle shimmer. The true beauty of the shadow comes to life when you apply two layers and the rose gold shade becomes more apparent but I like that you can choose to go sheer or more intense depending on your preference.

It is so quick and easy to apply to the lids, and it looks as if you’ve spent a lot more time on your eye makeup, and the glitter doesn’t fallout and get all over my face which I love. I really want more shades as I love the Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss formula so much, and it’s the perfect way to add a little sparkle to your makeup look without the hassle of applying loose glitters.
