Tanya Burr's Lip Glosses under the radar. Are they worth the hype?

Hello lovelies. Today I'd like to talk to you about lip glosses. In general I'm not a fan. I have long hair that I'd like to keep loose and with the constant wind (Hello Britain lol) it's just not the most easy thing to wear on your lips. I also find most very drying. Ok I love matte lips too and matte colours tend to dry my lips too but at least I know what I'm paying for - perfect lips for several hours :)

I love Tanya Burr. She is such a sweetheart, super cute Youtube machine. Yet I've seen her beauty line when it launched and I never really wanted anything. I rarely wear falsies so that wasn't my cup of tea and I don't like lip glosses. Having seen Tanya apply her lip glosses on her videos I became bit more interested as they seemed to have a lovely colour payoff and as the name suggest they were so glossy ;) Finally on my weekly (LIAR - daily) trip to Superdrug I picked one up. I applied it later on and found the nude colour to be a little too nude for me if you know what I mean. However I found that lip gloss, although just a teensy bit sticky (which I don't mind at all) lasted for good two hours and after it was gone it left a nourishing layer on top of my lips for another 3 hours afterwards. 

Having said all that colour by itself was really light so I started to experiment with adding a little on top of my nude lipsticks. That's how I found my perfect combo: MAC's Kinda Sexy and Tanya Burr's Chic :) If I want a nude lip these days that's what I will go for :) 

I wanted more :) This time I wanted to pick up a more "me" colour and after seeing swatches everywhere I've chosen Aphrodite. What a happy surprise it was, that I found it on Fragrance Direct for £1.99 :) In the basket it went, alongside a little MAC extra, but that's the story for another time.

The moment I opened the package I knew that Aphrodite may quickly become my favourite lip gloss ever. It's has a raspberry tone to it and it's just lovely pinky, red and glossy at the same time. What's not too love. Pigmentation as for a lip gloss is pretty great and again it lasts well on my lips. Even once the colour goes off it leaves a comfortable layer on top of your lips and you don't feel like you need to use a lip treatment afterwards.

I've done some scary close up swatches for you as well as standard photos and I will leave you to judge if you like them or not :)

I'm a new convert to lip glosses thanks to Tanya Burr collection :) Will I be getting more? Probably not as these two will last me forever and as I said before, I don't wear lip gloss that often. Aphrodite will end up in my work makeup bag as a quick during a day fix, that's for sure :)

You can get them at Superdrug for £6.99 here or specific shades at discounted price of £1.99 at Fragrance Direct here. Also check out Tanya's YT channel if you don't already stalk her online ;)
