My Experience with Butter London Old Blighty Lippy Moisture Matte Lipstick:

Packaging: This lipstick comes in a sleek black packaging with a glossy finish. The cap shuts tight and there is no danger of the cap coming off loose. The packaging is slightly on the heavier side and feels and looks luxurious.

The lipstick does not have the traditional bullet shape but it is not totally flat either. I was initially worried that the shape would make the application difficult, but the slight angle makes the application just fine.

Shade/Pigmentation: “Old Blighty” is a gorgeous brick red shade. I just love how this shade is the perfect mix of red and brown. It is a universally flattering shade and will look good with both traditional Indian attire as well as Western wear.
Lipstick bullet

The pigmentation of the lipstick is quite strong, one swipe is enough to cover the lips. Multiple swipes do not make the application patchy.

Texture/Finish/Staying Power:  The texture of the lipstick is quite creamy. It applies effortlessly and there is no tug at all. A downside of such a creamy texture is that there a danger of the lipstick melting in hot weather.
Red lipstick

The lipstick feels quite moisturizing and does not dry out the lips. You do not need any balm prior to application of this lipstick.

The finish of the lipstick is not exactly matte as it has a slight sheen to it, but it does dry down slightly after a while to give a lovely velvet finish. It feels comfortable throughout its wear and never feels drying.

The lipstick does not accentuate any lip lines nor does it feather or migrate which is pretty good news for a bright shade.
Swatch on hands

The lipstick does transfer, though not too much. It stays put for around 5-6 hours and survives light meals and drinks. It fades evenly and leaves behind a stain. The lipstick is not what I would call a long lasting lipstick but I must say that it feels absolutely wonderful for whatever time it stays.
