Review: Tanya Burr Lip Gloss

tanya burr lip gloss vampire kiss and aurora

I think that if you are here, reading this blog, it's highly unlikely that you need me to tell you who Tanya Burr is.  One of the first Youtubers I ever watched (and one of the few that I watch with any regularity - I'm more of a blog-reader), Tanya's incredible success is an inspiration to lots of bloggers, and I felt very excited and proud for her when I was able to pop a few items from her new line into my FeelUnique basket. 

Despite the fact that I ordered pretty much within the hour of the launch, I only just received these a couple of days ago, so I am super keen to finally be able to share them with you. I allowed myself two lip glosses and two nail polishes, and the polishes will be featured here tomorrow. I am slightly embarrassed to admit that only one item was chosen based on the actual colour; the other three were picked on shade name alone.

The packaging of the glosses feels good-quality, and the little hearts on the top of the lids are a typically girly Tanya-ish touch. Her personality really comes through with this line, especially with the cute shade names. The doe-foot applicator is a great shape, and really hugs the lips, depositing the right amount of product. Both shades I bought are really pigmented and incredibly glossy, without feeling overly sticky on the lips. They also have a strong scent, which is very sweet and fruity - strawberry I think - which I initially found a bit off-putting, but once the gloss is on, the scent fades away, and is not overpowering as I had feared.


Aurora was picked purely due to its princessy name; I'm easily swayed by anything Disney-related! This rosy pink shade has a shimmery finish, and is a really wearable everyday shade. It's the sort of gloss I could keep in my handbag, as I could put it on at any time really, without having to think too much about it. It is also sheer enough to wear over a pink lipstick, if you wanted to. Vampire Kiss (the only shade I bought because of its shade!) is totally different; a bright, blood red, with an ultra-shiny shimmer-free finish, this one is far bolder. You really wouldn't need any lipstick under this to get a strong look, as it is very pigmented. I realised, much to my surprise, when browsing the shades that I didn't currently have a properly red gloss, and this has filled the gap in my collection nicely.

    1. It's just the right amount of stickiness to have good lasting power, without feeling gross! x

  5. I haven't got around to ordering any yet, as soon as I heard one was called Aurora I knew I'd need that one no matter what it looked like, like yourself purely for the name :) I'm still trying to decide which other colour to order as I want to get 2, there'd does sound like a good option as I don't own a red gloss either.

    1. Haha yes, a Disney-lover like you would definitely understand why I immediately put that one in the basket! I would definitely recommend Vampire Kiss, but if that's not your thin, from what I have seen on other blogs Picnic on the Park looks nice (but another pink, so maybe you wouldn't get that and Aurora), as do Chic and Exotic Island, which I was so put off by on the website as it looked really purple, but from swatches I have seen it is more pinky. xx
