Tremendous thanks to AlexandraRC of Sparkly Vernis for her guest swatches of a very topical color: Lillibet’s Jubilee from Butter London.
“Lillibet” was Queen Elizabeth II’s childhood nickname, and 2012 marks her sixtieth year on the throne. Who wouldn’t want to celebrate the monarch’s Diamond Jubilee? (England’s second such celebration! Elizabeth II’s reign is exceeded only by Victoria’s.)
From the photos I’ve seen, I’d call Lillibet’s Jubilee a metallic silver-lavender frost-foil (slightly gritty, but the “grit” is small and seems to get lost in indoor photos). Many have praised its coverage (almost a one-coater) and smooth finish. The color is $14, and is limited edition.
Butter London describes this shade as containing holographic glitter… I don’t see it, but it’s a lovely color nevertheless.

You can pick up Lillibet’s Jubilee on ButterLondon.com and Beauty.com (Beauty.com has a Friends and Family, 20%-off discount May 14 – 18, or you can take $10 off a $50 purchase — no codes, these are clickthrough offers).
If we’re lucky, the color might also come back in stock on Nordstrom.com.
