I have a very exciting post for you all today, all about my thoughts on the extremely talented Tanya Burr's lip glosses. I'm pretty sure you have all heard of Tanya Burr before through the vlogging/blogging community but if you haven't she's an amazingly talented makeup artist and has become one of Youtube's hottest stars, with her easy to follow make-up tutorials teaching us 'her followers' how to replicate and wear the latest beauty trends. I've been a subscriber of Tanya's now since 2009 so when she mentioned in one of her video's that she had her very own cosmetics collection 'Lips and Nails' coming out I just knew I'd have to try it for myself and I was so happy for her, it just goes to show anything is possible and you should never give up on your dreams.
Tanya's Lip Gloss collection consists of 12 lip glosses in total that come in a variety of shades from peachy nudes, pinky tones and even glamorous reds, theres certainly a glossy shade to please everyone and they all come in a mixture of either cream finishes or more shimmery finishes too. Tanya also picked all the shade names herself which I think is such a nice personal touch, you can really tell a lot of hard work, thought and effort has gone into these glosses and Tanya's personality certainly shines through.
All of the 3 Tanya Burr glosses I have been testing out have such a beautiful formula, they glide on the lips super smooth and creamy, they have a good amount of pigment, they smell amazing just like strawberry laces, and most importantly for me they are all non sticky, woohoo!!! The consistency of each gloss is rather thick so you would naturally assume it would feel sticky on the lips but they aren't at all, they feel more like a moisturising balm to me and are super comfortable to wear and ultra glossy. The packaging of the glosses I really do favour, they all come in clear plastic tubes so you can see the shade your picking clearly and also feature Tanya's name and a cute heart on the front, the same heart also appears on the top of the lid too. The lid has a 'twist/screw' mechanism and locks into place after a few turns making it nice and secure, which is great for when you toss the glosses into your handbag when your on the go. The glosses applicator slightly differs from your typical doe foot applicator and appears slightly longer and flat with a rounded end, it really does hug the lips whilst your applying and pulls out the perfect amount of lip gloss for my lips, I never find myself re-dipping for more product.
A gorgeous natural, dusky pink shade that has tiny specs of glitter running through it, the glitter isn't overpowering at all but adds a beautiful twinkly sheen to the lips when it catches the light. I love the Disney 'Sleeping Beauty' inspired name too.
A fuchsia, pink shade with some purple undertones that has no glitter or shimmers within the gloss what so ever, it looks some what juicy on the lips too he he, its certainly a colour you would expect to find within an exotic fruit on an exotic island too.
Picnic in the Park* £6.99
A pinky coral shade with a nice creamy finish with no noticeable shimmers or glitters running through the gloss at all. Picnic in the Park is the perfect shade for spring, daytime wear.
Each gloss lasts on my lips around 2-3 hours before I feel I could use a touch up, however even when the glossy finish has worn off after the 2-3 hours my lips feel super smooth and moisturised.
Overall I do really like Tanya's range of glosses and I'd go as far as saying the formula is the best I've EVER come across. I love the fact that the range contains a shade of gloss that would suite everyone, I'm already eyeing the red shades he he. I'd highly recommend these glosses to everyone especially those who really aren't gloss fans because of stickiness issues, Tanya's range really isn't sticky at all.
Tanya's Lip Gloss (£6.99) and Nail Polish (£5.99) collection are now available to buy in selected Superdrug stores nationwide, the Superdrug website and the Feel Unique website too.
