When Butter LONDON told me that they wanted to send me one of their new Moisture Matte lipsticks, I was hoping for this one. Autumn's almost here and (you know I love it) it's the time for dark, vampy lips. This is the darkest one in the collection, so I was really excited.
Let me start off by saying that while I'm writing this review I'm wearing the lipstick and it feels fantastic. It is definitely moisturizing, My lips are gliding across one another! (edit: I've been wearing it for a little while now, and it does feel a little bit more powdery, in a good way). The website boasts a long-lasting, non-drying formula that does not feather or bleed. Revolutionary gel-capsule technology delivers color and moisture for smooth, silky application and maximum comfort.
It smells like vanilla, like a MAC cosmetics lipstick but more subtle. I also like the weight of the packaging, it feels heavy and high-end. It just doesn't look high-end, so that could be better.
Ruby Murray is described as a delicious berry cream lipstick. Now, here is where it got a tiny bit disappointing for me. It is a berry shade, just not as dark as I wanted it to be. You do have to build up the color as it's on the sheer side, but when I did get it as opaque as it could possibly be, it was just...eh. It is growing on me, though.
*This was given to me by Butter LONDON for review but my thoughts, as always, are my own.
