Tanya Burr lip glosses review
Okay, so I’m a big fan of thetanyaburr, so was very excited to hear that she was collaborating with Eye Candy to release a lip and nail line. They have just come into store in superdrug and are available online too.
First things first I picked up Afternoon Tea along with a nail varnish (which I’ll review soon). Afternoon Tea is a pinky nude, but a bit too pink to be a complete nude. Its great for everyday colour for someone who wants to step away from nude. I also picked up the shade Chic, which zoella wore in a recent video. This is a dark nude, which is great for a summer no make up make up day. I think this may become my day to day go to colour.
The formula is smooth and thick, so it has a high amount of pigment for a lipgloss (think Rimmel Apocolips). It goes on quite easily, however I found that Afternoon Tea seemed to gather until I pushed it into my lips. I want to try a more colourful colour to see if its the same. For a lipgloss I find it quite long lasting, however it does dissolve over time and if you eat/drink. The smell is utterly gorgeous, almost like strawberries, which adds to the application. I find it can be slightly sticky when it comes to hair, but I can honestly live with that.
The applicator is really good, the product is on both sides. Its a flat applicator so you can just put it in-between your lips and move it back and forth. The handle is a reasonable size so you can easily use it.
I love the packaging, its compact enough to be put in a clutch. Yet it has a large amount of product and can be found in a big bag quickly.
They are priced at £6.99, compared to the rest of the high street options it is about the middle of the road. I will definitely be getting more and trying the different colours as they are some of my favourite lipgloss available.
