Review & Swatch | “Tanya Burr” Lip Glosses

 2014-03-18 08.45.26

Dear Miss Tanya Burr,

I just want to thank you for creating such gorgeous range of lip glosses with beautiful colours for all occasions and all types of complexion. These are juicy, glossy, moisturising, and oozes elegance. I love them, all of them. Here’s a little token of appreciation of how much I love these lip glosses. A humble review and swatch of the shades that I now own. Perhaps someday I get to meet you. You are simply adorable. The lip glosses are adorable.


Keep reading to see swatches!

Here’s what the packaging looks like – personally I like it. It is no fuss, easy to detach, clear name of each colour on both packaging and on the tube. You can take out the entire plastic from the paper packaging fairly easily and I love storing or carrying the lip gloss with the plastic casing still enveloping it. It protects it. You can see what I mean in the photo below :)

Another shot of the new lip gloss family ^_^

You can see me wearing Afternoon Tea in a recent FOTD post “Good Afternoon FOTD”

What I like about them:




has a slip and grip without being overly sticky

nice yummy scent that reminds me somewhat of some childhood memories I’m not sure what or why

glides on smoothly

covers any imperfections or chaps on the lips

juicy look

not overly expensive

classy look

awesome applicator that fits my lips perfectly

each with its own clear case for protection and storage, which also makes it scratch proof when placed in handbag or travel of any sort =) *grin*

I carry one everywhere I go nowadays…

Additional notes

Champagne Toast is very sheer, it is not intended for anyone who is looking for anything of pigmented colour in place of their lips, but it does give you a soft, glossy, healthy finish look. Some days, I just want that look.

Vampire Kiss is a potent vampire red – amazing pigmentation and texture. The boldest and opaque red lip gloss I ever come across.

Picnic in the Park and Aurora can be sisters except one is cream and the other, shimmer. Both are in same colour family range of pink.

Afternoon Tea and Chic could be regarded as cousins, almost alike but not quite. Afternoon Tea always makes me smile in not only its name but its reminiscence of milk tea for me. It has a tinge of dusty blush of a shade somewhat, yet Chic is in another family, yet somehow related. You get what I mean?

Heart Skipped a Beat does not only have a very cool name but a very cool pop of colour with soft shimmer running through it. It is a watermelon, raspberry shade that just screams “I’m awesome!” without being too much.


The Tanya Burr collection has 12 range of shades – you can get them @ – available now

Note – it takes about 10-12+ days for this to arrive to us in Australia (from the day you order). It did for me. Patience.
