Tanya Burr Beauty: Christmas

Here is a highly requested blogpost sharing my new Tanya Burr Beauty Christmas gift sets. Many beauty lovers wanted some swatches of these newbies, especially the Gingerbread set with its bronzed glitter polish. 

After watching Tanya Burr's YouTube video sharing all her fabulous Christmas Range I knew I had to try some, these two sets caught my eye and were on a saving on Superdrugs site. I ordered them online for collection in my local Superdrug store. 

The Gingerbread set which contains a nail polish, nail file and lipgloss. The normal price of this set is £8 but I brought it on offer at £6, which I thought was rather good. The Nail polish is in the shade Cookie Cutter (swatches further down this blogpost) and Lipgloss is called Sugar & Spice, super cute!

The nail file is double sided with one side being glittery gold and the other a bright barbie pink. It's a really cute size, perfect for keeping in my handbag. The lipgloss is a mini size of 5ml, it's a gorgeous peachy nude with sparkle through out. 

The Sugar Plum set comes with the nail polish called Sugar Plum and two sets of nail stickers. The normal price is £6 but it was on offer at £4 on Superdrug. 

As they are Christmas Ranges most of the products included are exclusive to these sets and aren't available to purchase on their own or after Christmas once sold out. The two nail polishes are in the same gorgeous cube shaped bottles which I love. I have swatched them on a colour wheel to show you the shades up close.

The formula of Sugar Plum was the same as the regular polishes from the Tanya Burr collection I already own. As the Cookie Cutter was a glitter polish obviously it's going to be different. This was the product I was most excited about but found the most trickest to use. The formula is extremely thick and gloopy which I noticed as soon as I opened it as it was filled right to the top. On one coat it appeared fine but as soon as I tried to layer it, it didn't go well. So I would recommend leaving each layer to dry fully and more till you do another coat as even on the fake nail colour wheel it was differcult to use. Personally I didn't like the appearance of one coat as it wasn't opaque enough to for me, so I would need the time to allow to dry and do more coats to get the full effect. 

What are your thoughts on the Tanya Burr Christmas range? What are your favourites from the collection and her regular lines? Any recommendations to try out? Please share in the comments.
