Tanya Burr Cosmetics Get A Fresh New Look

Posted on September 29, 2015

Hi Guys!

It’s been well over a year now since Tanya Burr released her first makeup line – which I believe started with just lip glosses, nail polishes and lashes. Now forward on a year and the whole range has been re-vamped and re-packaged to give it a fresh new look, as well as having a few new additions thrown in the mix too. These include a selection of eye and brow palettes, as well as Christmas gift sets.

There was nothing wrong with the previous packaging at all, but the un-nescessary cardboard backing on the lip glosses and black gloss lids have now been replaced with chic high-shine gold lids, and the whole range has been given a new lease of life with metallic finishes, candy stripes, pretty pastel colours, and metallic gold accents.

First up we have a couple of the new look Lip Glosses in Picnic in the Park, and Afternoon Tea, £5.99 each. I already have Afternoon tea which is a lovely shade – you can see what the original packaging looks like here. I’m really impressed with the re-vamped lip glosses especially. Even though the formulas are still the same across the range, they now look more sophisticated and definitely like they should belong in a higher price bracket than they are. I should also point out here that all the prices have stayed the same throughout the range.

Next is the new Perfect Brows Set, £6.99. This is really nice little set, with everything you need for prefect brows. It contains three powder shades for eyebrows and one highlighter, as well as a mini application brush and tweezers. (Just to note my picture has come out pretty dark, the shades aren’t as dark as they look here!)

Next is the Nail Polish in Fairy Godmother, £4.99. I loved the previous nail polishes I’ve tried from Tanya’s collection, and this is no exception. The new packaging looks fantastic, and the shade range includes a beautiful selection of pastels, with a couple of darker colours that are perfect for Autumn.

And lastly, the Date Night False Lashes, £5.99. I’m a big fan of false lashes for a night out, and though I’d usually go for a fuller set, these look really pretty and perfect for a more natural look. I’m hoping to try these out later this week when I take my other half out for a date!

Tanya Burr Cosmetics are available now from Superdrug.

I’d love to hear what you think – will you be snapping any of these products up?

I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

My Top Summer Nail Polishes!

Posted on August 1, 2014

top-summer-nail-polishes

Hi Guys!

I seem to be constantly painting my nails this summer, maybe it’s because I’m out and about and doing more, therefore they’re chipping quicker? I don’t know. Maybe it’s just because I’m so indecisive! I’ve been changing my polish a couple of times a week for at least the last few weeks (whereas before I just used to remove it and not bother painting my nails again for a while) and I’ve noticed that out of my massive polish collection, I’ve been going for certain types of colours depending on my mood. I’ve narrowed my most used polishes down to three groups – Neons, Brights and Pastels. So here are my favourite polishes this summer…

Top row –The Neons

  • Models Own Polish For Tans – Shades
  • Models Own – Orange Sorbet
  • P.S (Primark) Neon Pink
  • Models Own Polish For Tans – Sun Hat

As soon as the Models Own Polish For Tans collection arrived I knew I had to have them. But I didn’t buy any for some reason, I think I may have been on a spending ban? Anyway I was lusting after them for a while then I managed to grab a couple of the polishes from ASOS when they had a 20% off site-wide offer on – result! I already had Orange Sorbet, another neon that was released pre Tans collection and I also can’t stop reaching for my Primark polishes too! This un-named polish in neon pink it just the perfect cool-toned neon pink shade. The formula isn’t amazing but it was only £1 so I’m not complaining!

Middle Row – The Brights

  1. Model’s Own – Pukka Purple
  2. Model’s Own Hyper Gel – Blue Glint
  3. Beauty UK – Pretty in Pink
  4. Beauty UK – Daffodil Delight
  5. P.S (Primark) Bright Magenta

If I’m not in the mood for a neon shade I’ll often take one step down the brightness scale and head towards the bright shades in my collection. I have another gorgeous Primark polish in here in an amazing bright Magenta colour, and I’m also a big fan of the Models Own Hyper Gels, especially Blue Glint, it’s such a gorgeous intense blue shade! I have a couple of Beauty UK polishes in here too, I’m especially fond ofDaffodil Delight, it’s such a great colour to put you in a good mood!

Bottom Row – The Pastels

  1. Essie – Not Just a Pretty Face
  2. Tanya Burr – Penguin Chic
  3. Barry M – Baby Pink
  4. Sleek Loves Gel Nails – Smokin’ Violet
  5. Essie – We’re In It Together

And lastly the pastels, these are just so easy to wear, you don’t have to worry so much if the colour is going to clash with your outfit or skin tone. I also love to wear a muted coloured pastel, such as Tanya Burr’s Penguin Chic with a bright summery outfit. 🙂

So that’s about if for my favourite Summer nail polishes! I’d love to hear which polishes you’ve been reaching for? xxx

June Beauty Favourites!

Posted on July 4, 2014

Hi Guys!

It was pretty hard to cut down my favourites for last month, I’ve been loving so many products! Some of these I’ve already blogged about and some I haven’t had a chance to yet, so take a look and let me know what you think! 🙂

A’Kin Macadamia & Wheat Protein Conditioner – This stuff is fantastic! It’s perfect for dry and damaged hair and it helps to provide maximum moisture to make your hair hydrated and shiny. Which we all need in this weather, right?

Makeup Revolution What you Waiting For Eyeshadow Palette – You may have already seen my many reviews on Makeup Rev, these guys are taking the beauty word by storm at the moment, and they just seem to keep bringing out amazing budget cosmetics! I can’t wait to see what’s next up their sleeves!

MAC Kelly Osbourne Jolly Good MSF – These littly babies sold out super fast, and if you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of these you’ll know why it’s in my June favourites! This duo MSF is a fab super soft bronzer and blush powder that’s the perfect shade for fairer skin tones like mine!

Tanya Burr Nail Polish in Penguin Chic – I know this is a grey shade, which isn’t exactly summery but I can’t help but love it! Work with me here – just imagine this on tanned skin, with summery white clothing, flip flops, hints of neon and long salt spray wavy hair, you get me?

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Booster – Oh this! Just this. I’ll have the full review up for this shortly so I won’t go into too much detail but it’s such a fabulous product for keeping your skin hydrated in this weather, I don’t think I’ll ever look back!

Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Violet – I’m saying nothing. Just click on the link 😉

Crabtree& Evelyn Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Body Scrub – This is a fab body scrub that smells as yummy as it sounds, it’s rich in antioxidants and contains a nourishing blend of pomegranate, sunflower, jojoba, pumpkin, and sesame seed oils replenish and soften the skin.

Ok so that’s about it for my June favourites, I could probably include another 10 products but we’d be here forever! I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these? xxx
