Tanya Burr Lips and Nails Review

I am a massive Tanya Burr fan, so when I found out she was releasing some make up I have to admit I was quite excited! I didn't purchase any of the products straight away as I wanted to wait until they were in stores so that I could see everything in the flesh before deciding on what bits I wanted. I started off getting just 1 of the lipglosses and 1 of the nail polishes and those are the ones I am going to talk about.

Lipgloss wise I was immediately drawn to Aurora, as you all know I a massive sucker when it comes to cute names and this one I definitely purchased based on the name, I love disney princesses and also aurora sounds like Laura! The packaging is nothing too special but it is sleek and functional. My first thought was how good the lipgloss smells! It has a lovely berry scent (and flavour if you lick your lips) and when applying isn't sticky at all. Aurora provides quite a lot of pigmented colour for a lipgloss and leaves the lips looking plump, glossy and a really nice pink colour. I have loved using this as a day to day lipgloss but it also looks amazing over lipsticks. My winning combination is this combined with MAC Chatterbox, this literally leaves your lips looking awesome! 

On the nail polish front I choose to pick up the super cute Little Duck. I picked this up because I really wanted a duck egg blue nail polish which this colour really is. I first put this on with no base coat or top coat and disappointingly it did chip after just a couple of days. Second time round though and I used a base coat and top coat and the last power was much more impressive so that would be my recommendation for application. I used this colour on my toes for holiday and I was crazy impressed with how long it lasted! I think I retouched it once over the whole holiday which is fab considering that I was in and out of both the pool and sea. 

Generally I have been fairly impressed with these products. Price wise these are middle of the range drugstore products but I would say the quality is slightly higher than the price which is of course amazing! I am very keen to try some more colours, especially in the lipgloss, what colours do you guys like? I know I am a bit late on the Tanya Burr train but better late than never!!
