NEW BUYS #2 | Tanya Burr Cosmetics
Whilst I was adding a load of Zoella Beauty (link here) products to my basket, I thought I may as well have a little look at what Tanya Burr Cosmetics was offering at the same time. I was super pleased to stumble across the matte lipsticks and matte nail varnishes, as I am obsessed with anything and everything matte.
I also noticed the cute little eyeshadow palette’s and obviously I wanted both, but ended up restricting myself and I only bought the one.
From the Soft Luxe Collection, I purchased one of the liquid lipsticks, one of the matte nail varnishes and one of the eyeshadow palettes.
Tanya Burr Martha Moo Luxe Lip Gloss – £5.99
The first item to be added to my basket was (obviously) the liquid lipstick in the shade Martha Moo. I love the name, I think it’s so cute and the shade is a really lovely muted red/brown with a tiny bit of pink. Definitely a great everyday wear shade.
I haven’t worn this lipstick for that long, I just quickly tried it on to see if the colour suited me (it did in case you wondering) and I can say that it’s a pretty good liquid lipstick! It dries within 30 seconds to 1 minute and does dry completely matte and not patchy at all. I didn’t find it super comfortable to wear, but then I also didn’t find it super uncomfortable to wear either.
I think you’re getting what you pay for and it does the job really nicely. I do really love the colour though, a l o t.

Tanya Burr Birthday Suit Eye Shadow Palette – £5.99
I wasn’t actually intending on picking up one of the eyeshadow palette’s, but they both caught my attention so I limited myself to just the one. I went for the more ‘everyday’ wear palette as I thought I would get more use out of this one, however I do think that the Enchanted Dream palette is just as beautiful.
I was a tiny bit disappointed when I opened the lid of this palette to find that the individual pans were a little bit misplaced and there was a bit of eyeshadow fallout underneath the see-through plastic film – this is just a minimal negative though and will not affect how I feel about the palette overall.
I did swatch each eyeshadow and the colour payoff seemed pretty good, a little chalky but nothing I won’t be able to work with. I am yet to try these eyeshadows on my eyes, but I will be sure to do a full review once I have done so.
The packaging does obviously feel quite cheap as the eyeshadows are housed in a cardboard palette, however the design of the palette is really pretty and I love the metallic polka dots.
Tanya Burr Soft Luxe Nail Polish (Soft Pyjamas) – £4.99
I literally have an obsession with buying nail polishes and I definitely own way too many, especially in regards to the amount of times I a c t u a l l y paint my nails. Either way, the shade ‘Soft Pyjamas’ really caught my eye as it’s a beautiful nail polish colour that actually makes me want to paint my nails (I say this all the time so let’s see if I do actually end up painting them..). It’s also supposed to have a matte finish which I l o v e and I would describe the shade as a lilac/grey/taupe – which is right up my street.
I’m excited to start using all of these products and maybe even purchase some more if I love them!
