Butter London Pitter Patter Swatches And Comparisons!

So guess what I got in the mail the other day? Pitter Patter was sent to me for review, and I am so happy to share it with all of you! It took me a long time, but I finally found a backdrop, lighting and camera settings that together show the purple as....... PURPLE! And actually colour accurate. So yay me!

As you can see, Pitter Patter and HRH look VERY similar in the bottles. Really similar in the bottles. In fact, they look less different in real life than they do with my macro lens which really emphasizes the difference.

When swatched though, they look totally different. Pitter Patter is much darker. Also, its more of an eggplant and less of a royal purple. Formula wise, HRH is ok. Nothing great, nothing bad. A good polish. But Pitter Patter? I have said for a few seasons now that Butter London has improved their formula and its true. This is just a dream to work with. As I am beginning to expect and demand from Butter London, the formula is buttery smooth, flows beautifully, is on the thicker side but not at all gloopy and the pigmentation is top notch. This is ONE COAT of Pitter Patter (two of HRH) though I would recommend two coats if you are wearing it.

Illamasqua Baptiste is the other one that to me looked like it must be a dupe. In these photos Pitter Patter is in the middle. As you can see, in the bottle they are near dupes.

On the nail, very different once again. From left to right, Butter London HRH, Butter London Pitter Patter and Illamasqua Baptiste.

So which one do I recommend? In order, I would say Pitter Patter first, Baptiste second, and lastly HRH. This is merely based on formula!

Pitter Patter is a limited edition colour in honour of the soon to be royal baby. On sale now on individually as well as in a set that I will be showing you all shortly.


  1. I agree... Pitter Patter, Baptiste, HRH. Pitter Patter is such a GORGEOUS colour!
