Tanya Burr Haul and Discount Code!

Hellooo my lovelies,

 As you may have seen from a post I did last week, I bought some of Tanya Burr's lip and nail products that she's just released (I'll link that post below). I actually liked the one's I bought so much that I thought I would get myself some more and Feel Unique had/have a 25% discount on Tanya Burr products using the code TANYA25. (Who can say no to 25%?!) I've taken the pictures and uploaded the post on the day I received this parcel to ensure you read this while the discount is still on!!  I also tweeted about the discount on my twitter (@whatabbyloves) so if you want a heads up about discount codes etc then give me a follow over there!
Midnight Sparkles

Mischief Managed
 Anywaaay I got slightly carried away which is totally not like me at all *cough cough* and I ended up buying 4 new lipglosses and another two nail varnishes. So I now own half of the whole range with six of the twelve lipglosses and six of the twelve nail varnishes. The nail varnishes I chose this time are a gorgeous red shade called 'Mischief Managed' and a lovely purple shimmery one called 'Midnight Sparkles'. I obviously haven't tried either of these because I only got them today but I have tried my 'Little Duck' and my 'Be Bright, Be Happy, Be You' nail varnish from my last purchase. Those two are really gorgeous on the nails but they do look much nicer if you give them a good three coats so I'm assuming my two new one's will be the same!

Exotic Island
 The lipglosses I chose this time were 'Afternoon Tea', 'Just Peachy', 'Smile, Dream, Sparkle' and 'Exotic Island'. Exotic Island was the first shade which I was really keen to try and it's a gorgeous purpley/pink shade in the tube but it comes out a lot more sheer than it looks in the tube. Like all Tanya's lipglosses it has a gorgeous strawberry scent which I personally really like!

Smile, Dream , Sparkle

  The second shade I chose was 'Smile, Dream, Sparkle' which is similar to 'Aurora' but a darker shade of pink and more sheer. The pink doesn't show up as much on the lips, it just adds a very slight tinge of pink but allows you to see the shimmer. It almost gives the effect of a clear shimmer gloss but with that slight tinge of pink.

'Just Peachy'

Just Peachy
 The last two shades I picked are very similar and I would definitely say that you don't need both of them as they are that similar (downsides of buying online!). I chose 'Afternoon Tea' and 'Just Peachy' and I have to say I'm not exactly thrilled with the shades of these ones. I thought it would be a lot more peachier and corally based than it is. When swatched it literally does look like I'm swatching glossy concealer. On my lips 'Just Peachy' really did make me look like I had concealer lips, I'm not sure if it would look better with darker skin tones but for me it's just not a great shade. However, I've had it on whilst writing this and if i rub my lips together a lot and once I've had it on a while it seems to look a lot more normal, more of a natural shade. However, it does remind me a lot of MAC's myth lipstick so if you like that then this would probably be a great one for popping over the top of that or on it's own. Afternoon tea is very similar but slightly darker. I will use them occasionally but I definitely wouldn't have bothered buying either of these two if I'd been buying them in a shop and had the chance to see them in person first.
