Review: Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon in Lady Bird (and win one!)

Butter London recently sent me some items to review and while I've mentioned their Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon here and there, I haven't done a proper review. In case you couldn't already tell, I have been quite pleased with the product. It's described as an "all-in-one formula" with "highly pigmented colour" and the "intense shine of a gloss". Now I wouldn't call it intense shine, necessarily; but I actually prefer it this way; it's glossy, pigmented and comfortable on the lips.
While it doesn't promise to stain the lips; it does wear off and since I'm horrible about drinking enough water, after a few hours it did go a bit patchy on my lips and clung to the dry patches that had developed. Moisturized lips are a must and so is some amount of reapplication, especially if you are eating or drinking; however this was 6 hours after application with some drinking (not water like I should have been, but an iced coffee). Still, a little lip balm and a tissue to wipe off the excess and my lips handled another application and looked just like I first applied it.
The pencil features a built in sharpener in the lid and I really like how the color is at the end of the stick so I can find in my stash or handbag easily.
From left to right is 1 swipe, 2 swipes, and kind of a "fill in" like you might do with a lip pencil. As you can tell, it's glossy and pigmented, though the color isn't exactly coming across well. One other major reason I like this pencil is it doesn't smell strongly of mint which seems to be a trend with these lip crayons and I don't hate mint, but I don't love it.
