Hope your week is going better than mine, tho yet again it can’t really be going much worse. I’m sorry this is a day late, everything was typed but I couldn’t get logged in my e-mails to get my photos (how annoying is that!?!) But on a brighter note, Halloween has been and gone so now we are officially allowed to talk about CHRISTMAS!!!!!! Now some of you might be rolling your eyes saying “it’s only just turned November” but I LOVE Christmas! I kinda feel like a real life Buddy the Elf, I have literally been singing and listening to Christmas songs for a good 3 weeks. And today I thought I would share with you a range of make up that I have only recently heard of and started using….. Tanya Burr Cosmetics. If you haven’t heard of Tanya Burr she is a YouTuber and has the baking book ‘Tanya Bakes’ out, but she has also been making her very own range of make up (I don’t know how long for tho) which is exclusive to Superdrug. And she has released a Christmas range with Superdrug which is meant to be limited edition, so I managed to snag myself two of her products…

So this is a cute set of 2 ‘festive’ lip-glosses that has been released exclusively for Christmas. There is a pink one called ‘Candy Cane’ and a red one called ‘Berry Pavlova’. How cute are them names!
So I tried to swatch the colours for yous but no lighting or hand positioning or anything could get the swatches to reflect the lip glosses true colours. The one on the left is the pink and the one on the right is the red (obviously). But in real life they are actually different shades and are really nice and subtle, not too garish and in your face. They have a nice sweet scent to them, but can I for the life of me put my finger on what the smell reminds me of. When wearing these the colours lasts really well considering they are glosses, but also on that note I would say that you should wear a lip liner as the colour does slightly bleed. Now the packaging….
It’s just so cute and simple, clear tube and a nice gold coloured lid and the Tanya Burr Cosmetics logo/ signature on the tube. I really like these two products and it has been so hard to keep them to myself, but we had to wait till Halloween was out of the way.

So this is my first ever beauty calendar.. EVER. And how pretty is it? A lovely light pastel blue with glitter and cute silhouettes of Tanya, Her husband Jim and their dog Martha (aka Martha Moo). And I got this while on offer, which it still is by the way, so its not that bad is it. And in it you get either; Nail Polish, Lip Gloss, Matte Lip, Glitter Liner and Glitter Pots.
And apparently you also get a little pocket mirror and a nail file. But even though I have opened 4 of the doors for this photo, I haven’t took anything out to try. That would ruin the fun for when I should actually be opening the doors. The size of the calendar and what looks like the size of the products inside the calendar are really worth the money.
Until next time guys,
