Butter London’s Artful Dodger is a colour I may like more in the bottle than on me. It gets me plenty of compliments when I wear it — and I adore Butter London’s unusual and deeply pigmented range and chic bottles (though not their retail prices in NZ!) — but I still can’t decide whether I really like it on me. Possibly it’s not Artful Dodger’s fault, but that I wish I’d bought Blagger instead. I mean look at that colour!
But enough lustful coveting, poor Artful Dodger; it did catch my eye for a reason. From the company website: “This true teal is a show-stopper. High fashion and so unique, it’s the perfect way to wear this trend without over kill.” There’s a bit of grey and yellow in it. It’s slightly muted and dusty. Swatches I’ve seen in-store can come up a distinctly greyed blue, so I wonder whether there’s been a little shade variation.
