Butter London- Knees Up [Swatch]

Welcome to day two of Valentine's Day Week-shades.  Today I have Butter London- Knees Up to show you!

Knees Up is a metallic-y, medium (that borders on being dark) red shimmer.  It's a very sexy, Dita Von Teese red.

Artificial light, two coats:

In the bottle, it looks pretty neutral, neither cool nor warm-based, but it looks very cool-leaning on me.  It probably is a neutral-on-the-cooler-side type of red.

Mixed artificial and natural daylight:

Window-filtered daylight:

In some ^ lighting, it looks positively sultry.  Mmm!

Outside, shade:

Yes, the outdoors photos were taken in the freezing, sleety rain!

This is really an awesome red, if you're looking for one that's not a plain creme finish.  I know that A England- Perceval is supposed to be very, very dupish too (don't have it to compare).

Formula:  Very good!  Goes on like butter, and you could almost get away with one coat, but I did two for swatches. Butter Londons can be very hit or miss for me, formula-wise, but this one is fantastic.


  1. this is one of my favorite reds of all times! so amazing!

    1. It is definitely one of my fave non-creme reds!
