Tanya Burr Lips and Nails!

Hi Guys!,

I'm very excited about this post and this collection is being said to be one of the biggest launches of the year, going by the fact that it sold out two, three? times already since the launch, I'd say its not far off. Tanya has collaborated with Eye Candy to create the range, I originally bought one nail polish and one lip gloss, but then the day I got them I knew I had to order more and well this happened.... Oops...

Tanya is a massive inspiration to me and I don't think I'd be training as a make up artist or even blogging without her, so it makes this collection that little bit more special to me in a way. 

The Nail collection consists of ten shades, They're £5.99 and mostly a cream finish bar one, Midnight Sparkles, which does have a sparkle. They have 12ml in each which is quite a lot of product, I'd say after swatching the ones I have you really need two coats, which is pretty typical of nail polishes anyway.

Penguin Chic - This is the first shade I picked up as its quite different to what I have in my collection, plus the name is so cute and fits it very well, its a lovely taupe grey, it can get quite dark the more you layer it too.

Mini Marshmallows - I just had to get this, the name just ties in with my blog name, Tanya loves it and its definitely one of those me colours! It's a beautiful baby pink shade that reminds me of strawberry milkshakes and pink marshmallows which is rather fitting!

New York Night - This one is actually my mum's but I just had to show you it, She chose it mainly as its one of the darker shades of the bunch, it can be a lot lighter though depending on how many coats you apply, its a lovely dark plum shade and the name is rather a winner too.

Little Duck - I love mint green, so how could I say no to this one, its a great shade for spring and seems to of become a blogger favourite. It reminds me of the Tiffany and co boxes, which I think Tanya has said was an inspiration.

The Lip Glosses are a collection of twelve, seven of the shades have a cream finish and the other five have a shimmer, its not however a very noticeable shimmer its quite subtle. Which I like as glitter ball lips isn't really a big thing. Plus they're only £6.99 which I love as they're so affordable but not cheap feeling glosses at all. They're moisturizing and very well pigmented, not sticky and just lovely and glossy, Plus they smell like strawberry laces, yum!

Aurora - This is the only shimmer one in the bunch that I picked up, I didn't realize this shade was actually this shade if that makes sense, i thought it was quite a bright pink, its more of a rosy pink, its lovely though for me its a bit of a your lips but better shade.

Picnic in the Park - This is the baby bubblegum pink of the range, I haven't worn this one yet but from the swatches it seems a bit sheerer than the rest, only slightly though.

Vampire Kiss - How could I not pick this up, combine my new found love of red lips and my very long going obsession with vampires. This is a match made in heaven for me, its a very vampy (excuse the pun) red, its a dark deep red, with a pink undertone to it, due to it being a gloss though it doesn't have to be so dark, its quite versatile.

Afternoon Tea - This was part of my first order, it seemed to be the most talked about before they even launched, its a nude shade but not a unwearable one due to its rosy pink undertones.

(Swatches: Left to Right - Afternoon Tea, Picnic in the Park, Aurora and Vampire Kiss)

(Swatches: Left to Right, Two Coats of each - Little Duck, Mini Marshmallows, Penguin Chic and New York Night)

I have to admit I definitely agree with this being a big launch this year, personally for me its one of my favourite things I've seen this year. Its a lovely collection and I can see these becoming new favourites of mine, I'm already eyeing up more shades but my bank is going to kill me at this rate haha. What do you all think of the rage though and which shades should I add to my list?

You can get them at Feel Unique - Here, Pom - Here and at Superdrug - Here.
