Tanya Burr Lipglosses

Happy Thursday everybody! I'm on Reading Week from university this week with the intention of getting a big chunk of my dissertation done. Consider that objective failed until further notice... Not good really. I wish I was more motivated and less of a procrastinator! I am however much more focused on getting some decent posts out to my lovely followers old and new. Speaking of which, I'm excited to tell you that I recently reached 400+ followers and will be promptly holding a giveaway on the blog! More information on that soon, but for now let's get onto today's post.

Tanya Burr was one of the first beauty bloggers and YouTubers I ever followed, so when she revealed that she was releasing a range of lipglosses and nail polishes in the New Year I was absolutely pumped. I really admire her - she seems so happy and dedicated all the time, and never fails to bring a smile to my face whenever I watch her vlogs or makeup tutorials!

The range includes 10 nail polishes and 12 lipglosses - two of which I'm going to review today. All the products have really cute names; a personal touch that I would come to expect from someone as adorable as Tanya! I've not tried any of her nail polishes, but I really want to get my hands on Little Duck (a lovely duck egg blue) and Mini Marshmallows (a girly baby pink)!

The two lipglosses I initially chose to try were Afternoon Tea and Chic, but I've since bought Picnic In The Park and Just Peachy because I'm really impressed with these products. Spring and Summer are always going to be the seasons of gloss, with most makeup artists at NYFW and LFW donning their models with shiny lips for the months ahead so I think it's the perfect time for Tanya to have released these! The shades range from beautiful sheer peaches to dramatic vampy reds, with crémes and shimmers featuring throughout the spectrum. Each tube comes with a handy lip brush applicator for a "glossy wet look with long lasting shine".

Afternoon Tea is subtle shimmer lipgloss in a beautiful coral pink shade. The swatch above was just one coat, and I appreciate that I don't have the best lips in the world, but I do really like how you can wear these glosses without putting lipstick on beforehand. I think this colour is pretty ideal for sweeping across the lips and popping out to the shops or running your errands. It's simple yet classy at the same time.

Chic is a sheer créme lipgloss in what I would describe as a cloudy peach shade. Again, the swatch is just one coat of colour and gives the lips a lovely subtle shine. Like its namesake, the lipgloss is very wearable with your favourite casual outfit to give it a chic edge. Personally, I think peachy shades suit my lips and skintone better than pinks or reds so this is my favourite of the two!

Have you tried any of Tanya Burr's products? What did you think of them?

Tanya Burr Lipglosses retail at £6.99, and are available from Feel Unique.
