Butter London Lippy Lipgloss in Trout Pout - My Worst Purchase Ever




Yeah, I was so sorry I bought this lipgloss. I loved the color of the Butter London Trout Pout nail lacquer so when I heard they had a lipgloss in this color, I had to try it.  This is a color I search for everywhere, in every brand.  Not even kidding.

I was thrilled to find this gloss, plunked down my $17 and couldn't wait to try it on. The color is perfection!!!

Color Love!!! But let me tell you what happened when I put this gloss on. I was so disgusted, I wasn't going to blog this at all, but I thought I should help some of you who might be tempted as I was. For a millisecond, I thought I detected a cantelope or melon type of flavor as I applied this, the thickest gooiest gloss I've ever put on. That millisecond passed and I was tasting Band-Aid. Yeah, pink chewy band-aid. *shudder*

With the consistency of Elmer's glue on the lips, no wait, glue isn't even that thick, and the taste of someone's old Band-Aid, this gloss is an epic fail for me. If they fix the flavor, maybe I could be tempted. I'm sure this gloss wears forever because it's just so awkwardly thick!! Fix both those issues and I would come back, but at this point, I will never ever wear this or any Butter London Lippy gloss again.

If you're curious about this gloss, you can purchase it at Nordstrom,  Beauty.com, Ulta or the Butter London website.  As much as the color was the answer to my secret prayer, the texture and taste just killed it for me.  How about you?  Would you wear a band-aid?

  1. I have read several reviews of their lipgloss and none of them are flattering. I really don't get why they are getting into this territory.

    1. It makes me wonder...didn't they test this gloss on people? How did it get approval? What were they thinking?

    1. Hopefully they'll revamp it and we can have the color without the yuckiness.

    1. I don't understand why the put it out for sale because it's esthetic ally repulsive, Didn't they test it? I imagine a nearly 100% return rate.

    1. If that's what they were going for, they sure missed their mark.
