New Affordable Cosmetics Line at Walgreens from Founding Creative Director of Butter LONDON

I remember a few months ago reading that Nonie Creme, the former founding Creative Director at Butter LONDON, was set to launch a new cosmetics line in the US, UK and Canada (you can read that full article HERE for some behind-the-scenes details). But at that time, I remember thinking, "Aaah, it will probably be in the high-end range," which is why I didn't rush to post about it (because you know I'm all about affordable cosmetics over here).

But I want to thank reader Tori on Facebook for sending me a message yesterday alerting me to the fact that the new Nonie Creme - Colour Prevails line is now available for purchase at Walgreens.com and Drugstore.com and, according to this press release, this line will also be available in-store at both Walgreens and Duane Reade. And guess what? The prices are more affordable than I was anticipating. Not Wet n Wild or Jordana type affordable, but more along the lines of Flower Beauty or Physicians Formula. Plus, since this line will be avaialble at Walgreens, you know that means there will be sales to bring the prices down a bit.

Nonie Creme - Colour Prevails Cosmetics
(avaiable exclusively at Walgreens, Duane Reade, Drugstore.com and Walgreens.com)

Keep reading for a closer look at the new Nonie Creme - Colour Prevails cosmetics line...

As you're about to see, the packaging of this line is butterfly-themed. There are eye, face, lip and nail products in this line, and the prices range from $8 for nail color all the way up to $19 for the eyeshadow palettes. Below are some photos of each product in this line, but please note that there are other shades available for most of these items--you can view all of the shade ranges and products in this line HERE.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I've had my eye on some palettes that were just out of my price range, but that smokey and smudgy palette, that will be mine. The Vintage Rose lip duo also looks pretty gorgeous. I like the idea of a matching lipstick/gloss set. Thanks so much for the pictures, and really all of the work you put into this site. I just snagged some Physician's Formula stuff for cheap because of you!

  4. These look amazing, but the packaging makes me think of Donita Donata in Wild Kratz, who is always trying to exploit wildlife for her fashion line.

  5. Yessss! That cc creme base coat and that colourwash comfort balm are the most interesting to me, can't wait to see this line irl.

  6. Well they've knocked it out of the park with the gorgeous packaging. Unfortunately, I'm a mad de potter and anything I can't de pot is in the cabinet hidden away so I'll probably pass on this line unless something gets crazy good reviews.

    Kica, your comment cracked me up!

  7. I think I might have get something just because of that packaging! And at those prices I can afford to!

  8. Love the butterfly theme. It reminds me of a perfume I used to own in the 90's.

  9. Interesting news! I might check these out. I love the lipstick/lip gloss combo!

  10. Oh my goodness the packaging!!!!!

  11. That polish cap looks really awkward. :\

  12. Wow, I feel so bad-everyone else is loving the packaging. Lol Storing any of these suckers would be a pain for anyone with a crap ton on makeup like me. Lol it's cool to see something new though-gotta give them props for originality. :)

  15. It's pretty, but a bit steep for Walgreens. Part of my thing going there is scoring deals. I do like that there's some different looking stuff here, though.

  16. O.M.G!!!!!! THE PALETTES!!!!! I noticed that just about everything else is a "duo" (like, the lipstick/gloss, liner/color, etc)...I wonder if they'll have more "single" items?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Other than being slightly concerned I might grab a polish instead of a liner because of how similar those packages are, this is impressive. I definitely want one of the beautiful palettes!

  18. I have a question? The nail polish is Made in USA and The eye and Lip is Made in China.
    would this brand be not cruelty free?. Thank you for all that you do. Janis

    1. I was going to ask the same question. I can't find their cruelty free status anywhere.

    2. C'Mon, Nonie Creme ...
      Show Us The Bunny!

  19. Those eye shadow palettes look so pretty! Hopefully the quality will be just as good as the price tags are!

  20. They had me at "eye shimmer"
    Not to mention the beautiful butterfly wing packaging. I'd buy it just for that!

    ReplyDelete
  21. :::groans::: that packaging though!!! there you go G making us broke again...i definitely have to pick out some items from this collection...that foundation looks intriguing...

  22. I actually really dislike the packaging. It makes me think of starter play makeup for a young girl. I like the idea of butterfly inspired packaging, I just don't think it was done very well. I also feel like a lot of the two-in-one type things seem a bit gimmicky.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I wonder how application would be on the nail polish with the whole wing thing going on. Also, I wonder if they'd fit in the Helmer... Maybe the butterfly wing pops off kind of like the butter london square cap pops off?
