lately i've been seeing talk of butter london's new lipgloss, named lippy, making the rounds on ye olde beauty blogs. as an anglophile, i love butter london (though i have yet to own any of their products as i am a poor nursing student), and i think the colors and their product names are wonderful. i still want their "no more waity, katie" polish.

here is a link where you can see the names and colors available for the lipgloss: http://www.butterlondon.com/catalog/57/lippy-lipgloss

i knew their nail polish is vegan (hooray!), but wasn't sure about the lipgloss, nor could my google-fu unearth an ingredients list, so i e-mailed the company. here is their response:

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for your email. The full range of butter LONDON products are cruelty-free. They are free of animal products, have never been tested on animals, and never will be. Thank you for your interest!

Cheers,

yay! now we can be all matchy-matchy with our lips and nails. unfortch, it appears the lipgloss is US-only for right now, which is odd because they're a british company... anywho. yay vegan lipgloss! i think "trout pout" is a pretty shade.

i saw these today at ULTA for $19 each, i believe. i swatched the testers on my hand and they are super-pigmented! they felt a bit sticky and thick, but i think that would mean that they are long-lasting... i hope.

a bit unrelated, but i bought my first butter london polish today ("no more waity, katie") and when i went to butter london's site, they are having a 3 for $30 sale with their polish-- just add three polishes to your cart and enter code "SPRING" at checkout. seeing that their polish is usually $14 apiece, this is a good sale! i don't know when this code expires.

Bringing up an old post...

I bought Snog the other day for summer fun. The gloss stays on for awhile...The smell/taste is like old lady perfume though...

They actually aren't British. I think they are based in Seattle.

Yup, Seattle based, but the founding creative director (who is no longer with the company) Nonie Creme is from England.

i finally bought one of these (in toff) and it's pretty nice, i think. i'm having a pajama day so i'm not wearing makeup, just slapped this on plain to try it. the smell is really nice, like vanilla/caramel or something. i've read that the early ones smelled bad, and they reformulated, heh. anyhow, this one is a sheer pink and i think it will look nice over a couple of lipsticks i have. it's a bit sticky, but nothing obnoxious... i'm hoping it just means it will wear longer.

Yeah, based on the nail polish names alone I never imagined them to be British. Unless they were really taking the peas out of themselves in some new circle of hell level.

But it's always great when more companies are bringing out vegan-friendly items!


eta: ooops, sorry, older thread! And I'm usually so good at noticing these things!

New info on the Butter London line- they have recently launched a array of new products including blush, mascara, lipstick etc

I was curious to know if these products are vegan like the nail polish is so I emailed the company. Here is the response I received:

"Hello Jennie,

Thank you for connecting with us!

Some of our New Cosmetics may contain bees wax, lanolin and/or carmine and these are not considered Vegan. Please know, butter LONDON does not test any of our products on animals. I hope I have been able to answer all of your questions. If not, please don't hesitate to email or call.

Cheers,

KIM PETERSEN
Senior Account Executive"

Haha, 'may'. The ingredients are up on Ulta and almost none of them are vegan, and that's just me assuming that the chemicals that I don't understand aren't animal derived, none of it may be vegan.

More info about Butter... When I emailed them to ask about their stance on animal testing and selling in countries where testing is required by law, I received this response - "We do not currently ship to China, we are actively pursuing distribution in that area." I replied asking if this was in process or something they were thinking about doing. They told me they did not have an answer they could give me and to not email them again until 2014.

That's second to the email the Go Max Go person got from Urban Decay on my list of worst customer service ever. Holy crepe.

Yeah... I was pretty surprised by it. Other brands have been really snarky with me on social media. I just don't get it. Basic customer service can still exist even if I'm not your customer!

Customer service is the bottom line for me. If my products arrive broken, leaking,, etc. if I think a few of them are crappy, I will still buy from your company if you fix your mistakes in a nice and timely manner and aren't a crasshole. But if a company has had customer service or PR, nothing can make me buy from them. That's why I tell everyone that Conscious Box can go suck a fork and I wouldn't ever buy from Lime Crime. Also indie mineral girls who sell mostly on etsy sometimes have the worst people skills, and it's only them in their whole company so you can't avoid dealing with them.

Butter London has, I think, really overpriced polish for how it performs so if they're rude to customers and shady about their CF status, they just dropped pretty far down on my list.

Yeah that's sealed it for me with BL. I hate the names of their polishes anyway!

Seriously though, I have one of their polishes and it's pretty pants, considering it cost me about £15. I'd rather spend £4 on Barry M and know that it will not be streaky as hell and look crepe.

I wanted to like BL more - but after one polish & gooey lip gloss I have not bought anything else.
