My Tanya Burr Cosmetics Collection


For those who don’t know, Tanya Burr is a UK YouTuber and beauty/lifestyle blogger. You can check out her YouTube channel here and her blog here. She has her own cosmetics line and has also written two books (one is an amazing cookbook full of sweet treats!). I discovered Tanya’s cosmetics range last year in the lead up to Christmas. I found her range on Feel Unique and as is usual for me at Christmas, purchased much of her range for myself rather than purchasing gifts for other people.


The range is very reasonably priced (starting around $10) and the quality of the packaging and the product is amazing! Her range includes several cheek and eye palettes, lip sticks, glosses and lashes. I have added to my collection in the months since and have shared my thoughts on them, below. 

Lip Sticks, Liquid Lipstick and Lip Glosses
The TBC lipsticks all apply so smoothly and have a satin finish. These feel so comfortable on the lips (they contain Vitamin E) and are not drying at all. The colour wears quite well throughout the day with reapplication only needed after eating food. I picked up three colours: Birthday Cake (a pretty rosy pink colour which will be my go-to this Winter), Happily Ever After (a neon salmon hue which is lovely in Summer time) and Wild Safari (an orange-based, red shade which I rocked around Christmas time). I would love to get my hands on Pink Cocoa which is a lovely brown shade. The lipsticks have yellow gold packaging which is really weighted. I love a solid lipstick and hate lightweight packaging (to me it feels cheap). So this is absolutely gorgeous considering the low price point!
The glosses also feel very comfortable on the lips and do not have a sticky texture. I have Afternoon Tea which is a similar shade to the Birthday Cake lipstick and Just Peachy which is a milky, peach hue. 
I have one liquid lipstick which I ordered in error. I thought I was purchasing the Puppy Paws gloss but got the liquid lipstick instead. As you may know from previous posts, I am not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks as they highlight every crease and flaw on my lips. This is a super neon, pink/salmon colour which has not had much wear. I think I will pass this onto a friend.


Eye Shadow and Brow Palettes
I have two eye shadow palettes from TBC. They both contain four shades of very pigmented and buttery shadows. Again very good quality considering the price point. The packaging is made from cardboard and they contain heart shaped mirrors which makes them seem suited for a younger market. However, I have heard Tanya mention in a recent video that she is looking to change the mirror for future palettes. I have the Enchanted Dream palette containing Moonlit Walk (a shimmery golden highlight), Cocoa Plum (a shimmery grey-based bronze), Berry Souffle (a matte mauve/brown) and Magic Carpet (a matte purple based, dark grey). This is my favourite palette! I also have the Hollywood Eye Palette which is full of warm shades to create a "Golden Goddess" bronzed look. It includes Nude Delight (matte), Gold Coin (shimmer), Enchantment (glitter/shimmer) and Bookworm (matte).

The Perfect Brows palette is very similar to the Eye palettes, containing four shadows that are finely milled. It also comes with a set of tweezers for taming those stray brow hairs and a small brow brush. The shades are Fairy Cake (highlighter for the brow bone), Pebble (cool tone for fair hair), Chestnut (warm tone for darker hair) and Hot Cocoa (cool tone for darker hair). I love that you have the three options to create a custom shade for yourself. And if you find yourself not using one shade for your brows (for me it is Chestnut), they work really well as an eyeshadow!



Body Illuminator
The body illuminator has the most gorgeous scent. It smells sweet and buttery like you have just been baking in the kitchen (which is very brand appropriate considering Tanya's passion for baking). It has a subtle, warm tinted product which blends very easily. I love using it on my legs when I am going out...or just when I want to smell like baked goods lovely. It is housed in a rose gold tube with a pump applicator for easy application.

Eyelashes
I have not used any other lashes so cannot compare them to other brands, however I found these to be very easy to apply. I only wear false lashes for special occasions and picked up the very fluttery Bambi set from TBC. The lashes come with a small canister of glue however in the future I will be picking up some DUO adhesive as I found this glue set white (not transparent). I have a couple of Bambi sets but after wearing, I have found them really easy to remould to the tray for re-use.


So that is the end of my Tanya Burr collection! I did also buy the TBC Advent Calendar at Christmas which had some very cute polishes and glosses however I have given much of that away. Overall I think Tanya Burr Cosmetics is a great range with high quality items at a low price point. I would highly recommend visiting Feel Unique if you are based in Australia and curious about testing it out. 

I thought I would continue with this "Collection" series in the future and highlight brands that I have purchased several pieces from. If you have tried any Tanya Burr items, let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
