Tanya Burr Soft Luxe Lipstick Review

Tanya Burr is one of my favourite Youtubers ever so you can imagine my excitement when she released new products in her make up range last week! I already have a few of her products and have really liked them, so decided to go ahead and buy all 3 of her new Soft Luxe lipsticks! Not only are her products really affordable, but Superdrug had a really good 3 for 2 deal on so I managed to snap all 3 of these babies up for only £12!

So the lipsticks come in 3 shades: Martha Moo (named after her dog), Puppy Paws and Rhubarb and Custard. They are also all matte which seems to be the in thing at the moment. On the first look I was really happy when I saw Martha Moo because it's a very similar shade to Soft Spoken by NYX, which is my fave lipstick. It's much darker than the other two shades which are more pink. I decided to wear Puppy Paws on Sunday as I was going to the Dogs Trust fun day so I felt it was appropriate! When I applied it I was shocked at just how bright and pigmented it was! Unfortunately though it is way too pink for me and just doesn't suit me at all! I can just about get away with wearing Rhubarb and Custard which is also very pink and again so pigmented, in fact all three shades are. So for me personally I think Martha Moo is more of a staple, every day colour whereas Rhubarb and Custard will be saved for special occasions and I'm not sure if I will ever wear Puppy Paws tbh.

Here's a swatch of each colour. For some reason, Rhubard and Custard looks way more red than it actually is in real life.

One problem all matte lipsticks have to face is cracking. A way to avoid this is to not let your lips touch for a couple of minutes after applying to let it dry and set. However, I found these lipsticks to be quite sticky and made it very tempting to keep smacking my lips together. Stickiness is a problem I have faced with Tanya's previous lip glosses as well. As a result of this the lipstick does tend to crack - however my boyfriend said he liked the look it created so if you feel the same as him then it shouldn't be a problem for you!

When I originally swatched these colours I was pleased with how hard they were to rub off. You can't just use a makeup wipe, you have to really scrub them off! This is the same for when it's on your lips. This is usually a good thing but after realising how Puppy Paws didn't suit me it was a real pain to get off, so make sure you're committed when you apply this because it's not coming off without a fight! They are so sturdy that they barely transfer either, which is great for when you wanna give your boyfriend a cheeky kiss without him ending up wearing the lipstick too!

Puppy Paws, which as you can see just doesn't suit me at all!

Martha Moo, my favourite!
Rhubarb And Custard
The main problem I have with these lipsticks is that they do tend to crumble after a while which isn't very pretty. Also I find that the lighter two colours can look a bit cakey.

However, overall I really like these lipsticks and for the price they are well worth it! They also smell so sweet and amazing! I really hope she comes out with some more, less pink, shades for me (and hopefully you) to enjoy!

Thank you for reading! Have you tried Tanya's new products? Let me know in the comments!

See you soon,
