Beige & Lavender with Dior Beige Lotus & Butter London No More Waity, Katie

A manicure & pedicure was the perfect way to end the week. I’m so happy it’s Saturday but I fear the day will go by too fast. I picked out two newly released shades Dior Beige Lotus 211 (first featured here) and Butter London No More Waity Katie.

Dior Beige Lotus 211 ($21 from Dior.com) is a warm neutral caramel-nude infused with tiny silver micro sparkles. The shimmer is refined and so pretty to look at. Why can’t there be a shadow that exists like this one? (Most beige sparkles I’ve seen are a lot lighter.) With two coats you get full coverage but the shade is so close to my skin tone it looks like a true mannequin hand. Like but will love it more when I’m more tanned (hopefully soon).


Butter London No More Waity Katie ($14 from ButterLondon.com) is a sheer lavender jelly-like base with chunky silver and lavender glitter. I wonder why most of us were expecting a lavender version of Buttter London’s All Hail McQueen (reviewed here)? I had to apply three coats to get it to show up but decided it was a bit too chunky for my fingers. I put it on the toes. London Makeup Girl shows you how it looks with fewer coats versus three coats. Lipglossipping also has a lovely feature. What do I think? Hmmm … it doesn’t seem like a grown-up-princess type of color, the glitter is super chunky, the base is really sheer, but with three coats it does show up. I’m still undecided.

    Ooooh these are so pretty! The Butter London looks very similar to Lancome Le 54!

    I think No More Waity Katie is going to be a toenails-only shade for me too – the glitter is quite chunky, and I would have preferred it to be a little finer.

    I like that Dior, and I don't usually go for peaches.

    I agree, such chuncky glitter is a toes-only polish. I haven't received mine yet, but I should Monday. I don't think it looks exactly as advertised, but I still think it looks great on you! Thanks for always doing such great blog posts…I don't usually comment but I really love them!
