Tanya Burr Lip Glosses Review and Swatches

When the Tanya Burr Lip Glosses launched, I have to hold my hands up and admit that I assumed that they’d be gimmicky but after trying my very first shade; Champagne Toast, I was really blown away by their quality and have since amassed a fair few of the shades. There are twenty shades in total, and each costs £6.99 although Fragrance Direct are now selling them for only £1.99 each which is insane considering how nice they are. The Tanya Burr Lip Glosses come in a range of shades and in either a creme or shimmer finish.

Each of the Tanya Burr Lip Glosses have a clear tube so you can easily tell the shades apart if you happen to own multiple shades. The glosses all have a typical doe-foot applicator, and they all smell incredible, with a Cherry Drops or blackcurrant Chewits scent which I absolutely love. The opacity of the glosses differs from shade to shade, but generally speaking the shimmer shades are sheerer than those with a creme finish, and all of the shades are comfortable on the lips and aren’t at all sticky. Lipgloss is such a marmite beauty product, but I prefer lipgloss to lipstick as I find gloss to have a lot less maintenance and you don’t have to prep your lips prior to application.

First Date: a pastel bubblegum pink with a creme finish.

Chic: a brown toned nude with a creme finish.

Picnic in the Park: a bright pink with a creme finish.

Just Peachy: a pale peach creme.

Daydream: a sheer pale nude with gold shimmer particles.

Lunch Date: a beigey pink toned nude with subtle shimmer particles.

I Found Nemo: a bright coral with a creme finish.

I think all of these shades are gorgeous, although when on the lips, I can’t tell Chic and Daydream apart so I don’t think you need to own both shades are so similar. It’s such a bold statement, but I really do think that the Tanya Burr Lip Glosses have my favourite drugstore lipgloss formula as they’re so comfortable on the lips, and they even leave my lips feeling soft as they contain Beeswax, Castor Seed Oil and Shea Nut Butter. I think it’s insane that Fragrance Direct are selling these glosses for £1.99 each, so if you’ve been wanting to try them out for yourself, I’d recommend ordering from there as a £5 saving per gloss is amazing.
