Tanya Burr is a youtuber and blogger, which I am sure many of you were already aware of, as she has over 3.5 million subscribers on her youtube channel. Youtube stars releasing cosmetic lines are a really love or hate topic, but personally I love it. Tanya released her original range in 2014, since then she has added many permanent and limited edition products to her range and has had a complete brand design makeover. The lip glosses I have are all in the original packaging, as I bought one of them way back when she first released them, whilst the rest I have bought from beauty outlets when they were taken out of stores to make way for the new packaging.
The lip glosses retail for £5.99. I feel as if this is quite expensive for a lipgloss when other brands in Superdrug like Makeup Revolution and MUA do good quality products for at least half the price. When a Youtuber releases cosmetics, I feel as if you are definitely paying for their name more than the quality of the product. For all my lipglosses aside chic, I paid 99p, which means I got 6 lip glosses for the price I originally paid for one. I cannot link most of the shades as they have been discontinued but I would highly recommend popping down to a beauty outlet near you and having a rummage around as you get a lot of bargains.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked these lip glosses considering it is a “celebrity” makeup brand! They are sticky which I rather like, I feel like this makes them stay on longer and they don’t smear all around your mouth. They smell like watermelons which is definitely a bonus and have a really opaque coverage. The applicator allows precision, whilst covering a large area of your lip, so it only takes a matter of seconds to apply.
Left to right – champagne toast, chic, just peachy, sparkling dewdrops, exotic island, enchanted forest and vampire kiss.
Champagne Toast – Nude almost clear with flecks of glitter in, nice for putting over any lipstick to make it glossy.
Chic – Nude pink, looks lovely by itself or on top of a nude lipstick.
Just Peachy – A peachy baby pink, quite hard to build up to be fully opaque, would suit very light skin tones.
Sparkling Dewdrops – Your lips but better colour, a medium pink with flecks of glitter in.
Exotic Island – A bright purple pink, a very bold colour, but perfect for summer.
Enchanted Forest – A classic berry purple, more sheer than the others but very buildable.
Vampire Kiss – A true red which is very opaque for a lipgloss.
I don’t own many lip glosses aside from these as I feel I have all bases covered, a red, a purple, a clear, pinks and nudes. Overall I really do like these lip glosses, but after paying 99p for them, I don’t think I could ever pay the full retail price.
Have you tried anything from Tanya Burr cosmetics? What is your opinion of Youtubers releasing cosmetics?
