Butter London Keks Comparisons!


As promised, here is a comparison post with Butter London’s newer blue shade, Keks. None of these are dupes for Keks in color or finish, but I thought this would be helpful for those wondering about different shades.

I included Slapper first, because I saw someone asking about it on another website; it is definitely not in this type of blue family and lies in the teal family.


Revlon Colorstay Coastal Surf is much lighter and has a glossy finish. Shelter Island from Essie is not nearly as opaque and is also lighter. Perhaps the most similar shade is Revlon Lagoon Afternoon, but it is definitely not a dupe.

The differences in these blues are a lot more prominent in real life; on the screen they don’t show the clear distinction between them due to the lighting! Still, the finish of Keks really stands out here. You can see the semi-matte rubber style finish.

I hope this was helpful! 🙂

  1. This is a great post! I wonder if I could repost your comparison picture on the Nail Board at Makeup Alley? Some feel it’s an exact dupe of numerous polishes, but your color wheel shows this is clearly not the case. I think the ladies would be interested in seeing this. And of course I would credit you and your blog as the source of the picture. Please let me know! Those are all beautiful blues 🙂
