I love the Christmas range that has become a bit of a Tanya Burr Cosmetics Tradition. They just seem to get better and better every year and this year is no exception, with lots of new products and shades, as well as popular long time favourites. Plus I think this collection has a bit more of a grown up feel about it, which is nice as it includes an older market too.
There are also two other items available in the collection, however these cant be bought in store. They're either available at Feel Unique, or are online exclusives for Superdrug.
They include the Pretty Unstoppable Palette -£10, which includes a mini (and currently sold out) Martha Moo Liquid Lipstick, from the Soft Luxe Collection. But also a selection of warm neutral shadows; Vanilla Sugar; a satin champagne shade, Toasted Tea Cake; a ochre brown, Hot Chocolate and Cream; a shimmery taupe and Cocoa Dust; a dark cool brown. Finally there are two shades for the cheeks too, a soft highlight shade in Champagne Shimmer and a natural warm peachy blush in First Kiss.
As well as a gorgeous and quite generously sized golden holdall bag, otherwise known as The Beauty Hold Haul - £17, it's very Lulu Guinness like, with the baby pink lip pattern too.
Mrs Claus Manicure Polish Set - £5
The Mrs Claus Manicure Set comes in two different variations this year, but still both have a matching nail file too. Just like in the Candy Cane sets from last year, though I think I do prefer this years packaging. The two shades available are both very glam, especially for this time of year. There is Fairytale, the pink glitter polish, which was first released in the Tanya Burr Lips and Nails Eyecandy collection as a Christmas Limited Edition. It's nice to have it back, although is giving it a run for its money. It's such a winter shade, the rich burgundy with a creamy finish is lovely at this time of year.
Sealed with a Kiss Cosmetic Bag Set - £16
I especially love this set in particular for two reasons, the bag is great due to the fabric it's made from. It's easy to wipe down and that's always handy if you're anything like me and get makeup bags covered in makeup. But also because it includes two new products, as well as a handy little gold pocket mirror. The two new products though are both named Cherry Macaron and come in the form of a liquid matte lipstick and a lip liner. Which Tanya hasn't done before in her range, both are creamy and a dream to apply. As well as being one of the most festive shades of deep cranberry red.
Baby It's Cold Outside Palette - £11
This is such a cute little blush palette, with the added extra of housing a gloss too. The gloss included is the ever so popular Afternoon Tea shade, from Tanya's original line. It's a pigmented, moisturising and long wearing gloss in a pretty coral pink shade. Then there's the blush and highlight duo, which is embossed with snow flakes to keep up the winter theme. The highlight is a pink champagne shade, with the blush being more of a pink toned nude, which is very natural but a nice flush of colour too.
It's Kissmass Lip Gloss Duo - £6
I think the little Lipgloss Duo is a fun little sticking filler and perfect as an introduction to either Tanya's range or just to the glosses. As I find gloss is almost the marmite of the beauty world, I must admit I'll only wear certain ones due to their formulation. But I can happily say that the formulation of Tanya's glosses is one of my favourites. The two shades on the set are Berry Pavlova, which is the true traditional red and then there is also Candy Cane, which is a fun bright pink.
Beautifully Defined Palette - £11
The Beautifully Defined Palette is the biggest palette overall, but it's perfect to create that bronzed glow look. As the Pretty Unstopable Palette is cool toned, Tanya also wanted to include a much warmer palette in the range. It still includes the Highlighter in Champagne Shimmer, but instead of a blush it also includes a warm bronzing shade too. It also has a generous sized face illuminator, which has quite a golden undertone. As well as three shadow shades in Silk Pyjamas; a shimmery milk chocolate, Cuddle Me; a copper and Baking Brownies; a dark smokey brown.
Tanya Presents Beauty Box - £50
This year there's also a bigger gift included in the range, unlike the 2015 Christmas Collection. There wasn't really anything that went over the £25 mark and although this collection has stayed relatively the same. I think it's nice that there is this option, for more of a keep sake style gift too. It's packed full of new and exclusive goodies, such as the smokey eye trio, which is much more of a taupe and slate grey coloured palette. As well as a travel sized face illuminator, pocket mirror in a baby blue polka dot print. Plus two mail files and two classic products, Bambi False Lashes, which are natural and great as an everyday lash. Then finally a mini gloss in Picnic in the Park too.
12 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar - £25
Just like last year Tanya is back with another Advent Calendar, it's another twelve days of Christmas one. Which I do wish was a little bigger, as this has become my favourite and only beauty calendar I've purchased this year. However for cost reasons it does make more sense to have it as a twelve for calendar. So I do open this every other day, which means I haven't discovered too much of what's inside just yet, however it's always a good variation of glosses, polishes and pigments.
You can find all of the items mentioned at either Superdrug or Feel Unique. Plus they have some brilliant offers on, especially Superdrug at the moment, with money off many of the items!
