I'm really excited to be sharing with you today my favorite from Butter London's Spring 2013 Sweetie Shop Collection and one of my favorite spring-time colors this year. Fiver is a lovely fresh minty green with a creme finish.
It was pretty much love at first sight for me and Fiver, and I managed to snag the last of bottle of this at Ulta during their last sale. And I'm so glad I did! I usually have trouble wearing minty greens... something in the lightness and the yellow tint of the green makes it not ideal with my skin tone. But Fiver and I totally meshed. It's light enough to be pastel, but not so light that it looks washed out. And the green leans just ever so slightly blue without any yellow tint. Ah, minty perfection! :-)
The formula is pretty awesome, too. It goes on smoothly and evenly, pretty much like butter. The first coat is a little streaky, but the second coat evens everything out and achieves opaque coverage. And it all dries to a nice, glossy shine.
You can find Fiver on butterlondon.com and at select retailers such as Nordstrom and Ulta for $15 for 0.4 fl oz.
