Butter London Cuppa (plus a comparison!)

Because I have an insatiable urge to buy ALL the putty/taupe cremes I see, I've got Butter London Cuppa to share with you today! This is from the recent Butter London spring collection release, and it is (surprise, surprise) a milky/almond beige creme. Lovely formula, perfect in two coats. This first picture is taken under artificial light, which typically makes the colour appear more yellow-toned; the following two are taken in natural light, which shows Cuppa to be a lovely milky beige.




I also thought a comparison might be in order, seeing how close SpaRitual Quietness looks to Butter London Cuppa in the bottle:


Left to Right: SpaRitual Quietness, Butter London Cuppa, Quietness, Cuppa.





As you can see, SpaRitual Quietness is actually quite a bit more yellow in tone; Butter London Cuppa is more of a cool, almond shade. While I like both of these, I think Cuppa is the more flattering option. What do you think?

  6. I think I like Butter color better. It looks a little more on the gray side.

    1. Certainly- and Quietness is quite a bit more yellow. I tend to like cooler/grey toned nudes better!

    1. It all depends on whether you love yellow-toned shades, or something more neutral! :D
