Butter London - Scouse Swatch & Review

22:48 Karise Tan 0 Comments

Hello hello! Today I am writing my very first Butter London swatch/review! Yay!! I bought this second hand BL Scouse for SGD$20! Look at all those goodness in that bottle :O 

I have read other reviews by bloggers and found out that Scouse is a duochrome. And it is MEGA duochrome!



The color showed in the bottle is an understatement. When applied to the nail, the effect is so much more BOOMZ. As many duochromes need a black base, all my swatches in this post are with ONE coat of A-England Camelot (the best black, smooth and veryyyyy opaque) and TWO coats of Butter London Scouse, ending off with Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat.

It seems to me that in the above swatches, you can see the brilliant sparkly blue more dominantly with hints of purple sparkles too.  In real life, a bend of the finger and you can immediately see a dark rich purple. It's like you have literally two colors on the nail just by catching the right light. Scouse also feels like a metallic blue under artificial lighting.

Oh my boy, look at that. I love my swatches taken in the shade. I mean, look at that beauty, I'm speechless. It's like the blue and purple blend well while complimenting each other. Just give a round of applause to Scouse girls!

Under direct sunlight

I was in luck when the sun shone directly into our unit and I quickly took off to the living room window with my DSLR. First thing was to see the BLING. Honestly, Scouse was so bling that I think it's even more bling than glitters! Can't you believe that??

I realised I have been going on and on about the color that I forgot to tell you about the application! Well, needless to say, it is very smooth. I super duper uber love Scouse! I think I wouldn't have gotten this if it weren't half the price! Would you pay the retail price for this? Share your thoughts with me!
