Beauty| Tanya Burr's Lipgloss in Heart Skipped A Beat

I don't think I need to begin to explain to any of you who Tanya Burr is. I think we all know by now she is one of the most successful Beauty Guru's out there. Officially trained as a professional make up artists she generously shares her pro tips and tricks with us online via her blog and YouTube channel. That's why when I heard she was releasing her own line of make up mainly focusing on Lipgloss and Nail Varnish, I knew I needed to get my hands on them. Being a Beauty Blogger herself she knows exactly what we look for in our products when it comes to quality so my expectations were met and exceeded when I tried and tested her products and realised how impressively they performed.  Tanya was involved with every step in the process of creating these products which is an obvious feature when it comes to the products names. In a interview on her launch night she explained that all her products were named after things she loved. For example Mini Marshmallows - a name of one of her nail varnish's. This being said I think we can all agree that every single one of her products screams personality. 
I'm sure many of you will agree that Tanya Burr has the perfect pout so thats why I opted to try out one her lip glosses first. I feel I need to mention that there are 12 easily wearable colours to choose from and I honestly think I would love every single one, a trait that doesn't happen often with myself. I chose mine in the colour Heart Skipped A Beat (£6.99), pictured online as a sparkly pinky-red that is actually a lot more of a dark pink in person which I actually preferred. The finish promises ultra-shine with an almost wet-look, applies beautifully to the lips and gives off a colour that's your lips but better. The colour is not overly pigmented which I personally love, I was worried with it being such a deep hue it would be hard to wear but with a sheer finish it's appropriate for everyday meaning I can get a lot of use out of it. 
 It has a moisturising formula that aids and hydrates the lips meaning you don't only look good whilst wearing this but feel good too - what else could you want? I was also pleased to see that it had a doe foot applicator, a quality that I guess I expected with a Tanya Burr lipgloss with this being a peculiarity most Beauty Bloggers praise. 
The only negative to this product being that the gloss isn't as long lasting as one would hope and does require multiple applications throughout the day to maintain the shine. Yet a hidden bonus to this product is that it does also act as stain meaning once the gloss wears off there is still a trace of that deep pink colour on my lips for a few hours after. 
All in all, a beautiful product and I'm already lusting over more from the collection (ahem Afternoon Tea and Champagne Toast) and with the collection coming straight off the web from online shops such as FeelUnique and into Superdrug stores soon, I think this will be a dream that's going to be made a reality!
