Spring Challenge - Lilac - Butter London MUGGINS

Hi Goddesses

Mmmmmm Butter London.    Mmmmmm Mmmmmmuggins.

I've resisted Butter London for a long time, but now that I've reached 600ish polishes, I'm becoming a bit more discerning, and trying to only buy ones I either really love, don't have a dupe of, or ones that are classic.

Step forward Mmmmmuggins, which falls into the classic category.  It was also a "bargain" on eBay at £10, which is what pushed me over the edge.  Yes that's a lot, but for a Butter London, it's a STEAL.

The photo that was with this on eBay showed a more blue polish - like a pastel periwinkle - and as I seem to be on a blue kick, that was why I bought it.  I'm not sure if I'd have made the effort to buy ANOTHER lilac, to go with my other 18 or so, but this is a very specific lilac indeed.

In fact, for once, I'm going to call this lavender rather than lilac.  Why?  I have no idea, but I feel this should be set apart from other lilacs due to the amount of blue in it.  This is a very blue-toned lilac indeed - so lavender seems a gooooood word to use.

This really is delicious.   It's creamy, it's soft, it's a little bit dusty, a little bit haughty and just a little bit upper class.  Things it reminds me of -

* Models Own Beth's Blue is a powdery indigo toned pastel blue - this is like the opposite of that, an indigo toned pastel lavender
* Zoya Jo and Caitlin get it on, have a baby and then smother the baby in cream.  They then put the baby in the blender and voila, they get this

If you own any other lilacs, you'll immediately notice the difference.  Here's a photo from my Spring Lilacs post to highlight what I mean

Mmmmmmm Mmmmmmmuggins, you so yummy :)

Enjoy xx :)
