Tanya Burr: Mistletoe Kisses

 When I saw this swatched on Tanya Burr's blog I was blown away by Mistletoe Kisses, the newest addition to the Tanya Burr cosmetic range and a limited edition lip-gloss in time for Christmas. I've not tried any of the lip glosses from Tanya's range but I was instantly drawn to the shimmer of this particular one. On ordering at Superdrug I found it had quickly gone out of stock, the only other place it's stocked is Cloud 10 with a minimum spend of £15.00 to qualify for free delivery, however, I went on Amazon and found the Cloud 10 stock list who were offering free UK delivery. I know the lip-gloss range as had some mixed reviews so, here are my thoughts on this lip-gloss.

 I found the lip-gloss to have a very sweet scent, almost like an Haribo or Gummy Bear. I've heard that a lot of people find the formula to be sticky, I, however, didn't find the formula to have any stickiness when applied on the lips, but it's definitely prone to having a few hairs stuck to it in windy conditions. I didn't find Mistletoe Kisses to have the greatest lasting power once applied, nor was the colour pay off that great, though it can be built up to achieve a more bolder look, but only slightly. The shimmer inside is truly beautiful and you can't feel the glitter particles whatsoever. For £6.99 I feel they are a little over priced and think lipglosses from the likes of Makeup Revolution or MUA are just as good if not better. I love Tanya Burr and watch her vlogs, but I just wasn't that impressed by this lip-gloss and felt a little disappointed, especially after seeing the gorgeous swatches on Tanya's blog. I will, however, be rocking this over the festive period by layering it over a similar shaded lipstick, with the formula being quite sheer it's easy enough to work with other shades, and the shimmer with bring a little sparkle in time for Christmas.

Have you tried the Tanya Burr range? What are your thoughts on the range?
