Read My Lips: Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Picnic in the Park

Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Picnic in the Park

Tanya Burr is pretty big in the British YouTube-land. Okay, make that very big. I actually only stumbled upon her channel at the beginning of the year. I won’t say that I’m her biggest fan but eh, she’s all right. Not going to say anymore lest I get thrown rotten tomatoes by her loyal fans. 😛

She launched her collection of lipglosses and nail polishes in January this year and since they were quite a hit, I thought I’d give one a go. Thankfully, Feel Unique had a sale going on few months ago and I managed to pick one up on sale. I wasn’t sure which shade to pick so I decided to go with a safe, wearable pink called Picnic in the Park.

The texture of the lipgloss reminds me of a slightly modern take of an old school lipgloss. It’s not terribly sticky but is still quite thick and tacky on the lips. Picnic in the Park is a milky, translucent bubblegum pink that sunk into my lip lines and accentuated them. The flavour is sweet vanilla candy which I’m not a fan of.

It’s odd that the paper packaging of the lipgloss says that the lipgloss is good for 12 months after opening but the lipgloss itself says 3 months.

I reckon my choice of colour was a bad one because the brighter, more vibrant reds look very good in reviews and swatches. I shouldn’t have stuck with a safe option. Instead, I should have gone for a bolder colour.

I can see the lipgloss appealing to a younger crowd (which is Tanya Burr’s target demographic anyway) because this did absolutely nothing for me. I’d prefer flavours that aren’t cloyingly sweet and not-so-sticky textures. Will be giving the rest of the shades a miss for now.

    I’m not familiar with her, so I guess I should check out her videos. I lack patience for most videos. They are mostly all too long unless it’s a tutorial that i’m really interested in. OK enough of my YT rant. Sorry you were disappointed with the gloss. It looked like a pretty pink that would be fun for spring or summer. Maybe save it for then? Too bad about the scent & stickiness.

      To be honest, I used to think her videos were all right but as time went on, I think my taste changed. I now find her too, erm, young for me. But good on her though for being able to launch her own beauty line. Not many people can do that. Yeah, I’ll probably save this for spring/summer. Right now, it’s just not my thing.

    I have heard so much about Tanya Burr’s lip glosses but I wasn’t very interested and don’t think I will be getting any now. I’m very fussy about non sticky textures too! The bubblegum pink shade is so cute though (but not a shade I would wear often as well).

      In that case, you won’t like this because it’s a sticky one all right. It’s not glue-smacking sticky but it’s something you definitely will not want to wear if the weather is windy. 😛

    This looks like a very pretty pink! Though I do think they are targeted to the younger crowd like you said… It’s still ok, good on Tanya for getting her own products out.

      Yeah I agree. Good on her for being able to launch her own beauty line. Not many people can do that. She does have a massive following so the products will sell well especially for younger audiences.

    That’s a lovely shade, perfect for summer. I don’t mind sticky glosses, but I can’t stand strong scents in my lip products.
