butter LONDON Olympic Heavy Medal Trio

To celebrate the London 2012 Summer Olympics, butter LONDON introduces a Commemorative Olympic Heavy Medal Trio (MSRP $36 – available this month), a set of three metallic nail lacquers worthy of standing upon the winner’s podium – The Full Monty, Diamond Geezer and The Old Bill

  • The Full Monty Does what it says on the bottle. Full-on molten gold. A beautiful colour that is always classy, never brassy.
  • Diamond Geezer Proper platinum, silvery and shiny. It’s finger-bling that sparkles like the real thing, but doesn’t cost it!

Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color

Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color ($55.00 for 0.28 oz.) is dirty red-brown. It’s hard to describe it, because it looks red, technically, but red brings images of bright, ruby reds to mind, whereas this is a much more muted red with a lot of brown to bring down the intensity. There’s a very faint sprinkling of gold shimmer that’s barely noticeable once applied. MAC Buddy Up is similar but browner. NARS G-Spot is very similar but has a different finish. NARS Oasis is much more plum.

It’s packaged in a metallic bronze case with a dual-ended sponge-tipped applicator and full-sized mirror inside.  The packaging feels and looks luxe, and despite its metallic finish, seemed to keep fingerprints pretty well-disguised.
