L'oreal - Brit Invasion

Hi guys!  Did anyone catch the Butter London sale today?  I went to two Ulta's today cause the first one I went to was pretty empty, I did end up getting 4 there.  The second one I went to had ONE Trustafarian hiding, so I snagged that.  I ended up getting 6 Butter London's today, when I planned on only getting two.  Ooops!!  Just like that I doubled my BL collection.  Be on the lookout for them....I can't wait to wear Disco Biscuit.


Anywhoo, I'm surprised I picked this color up.  This is Brit Invasion.  I usually pass L'oreal by....I think its the dated looking bottles.  After seeing so many of these swatches us, I couldn't say no!  You all know how I feel about the gold shimmer!  And WOW there was a lot in there.  


The shimmer is so in your face, and I LOVE the dusty taupe base.  The formula on this was......odd.  I don't know how to explain it....chalky?  No.....sticky?  I dunno, it was just weird.  But that's ok, cause the color is worth it!


Anyone else avoid L'oreal because of the bottle?

  1. Love the colour! I think this shade is so unique. I love that it has a slight purple undertone to it, I think that's what made this colour feeling one of a kind. I've never tried L'oreal before as they aren't available locally in my area.

  2. I really like L'Oreal! I have had pretty good luck with their formula. I picked this one up along with Tea and Crumpets, and man, Tea and Crumpets had a HORRIBLE formula, I was about ready to chuck it out into the street. I didn't have any issues with Brit Invasion, though; I wonder if you got an "off" bottle, or if maybe I am just more used to L'Oreal's formula. No Butter Londons today, though... Boo-hoo, but I knew I'd get into trouble if I let myself near an Ulta. Since there were no Butter Londons I knew I speicfically wanted, I decided not to tempt myself.

  3. this is a great polish, i usually blow off loreal too, but ive got a few lately that have been pretty unique! i did a small BL haul online, i didnt wanna deal with going to the only ulta by me and seeing their almost empty display, plus ulta polishes online were $2 so i hauled a ton of those too!

  4. Yeah, the Ulta's I went to were pretty crazy! I couldn't believe how many ladies were there with handfuls of polish. One of the ones I visited had a line by the BL's, it was weird!

  5. My Brit Invasion definitely had a weird formula, definitely different than anything I've ever had. But it definitely wasn't horrible which is good cause I love the color.


    The sad part of my BL haul.....I only wanted Disco Biscuit....then of course things got out of hand! Oh well....I don't feel guilty, lol!

  6. I find this a unique color too. I thought it would be close to CG Ingrid, while the base is similar, this has much more golden shimmer which I love!
