Tanya Burr Illuminating Powders Review

I recently went on a day trip to London and as a Belgian beauty blogger you can imagine that I was absolutely determined to find some makeup items that I had never seen or touched before! At the Superdrug in Oxford Street my eye fell on Tanya Burr Cosmetics, it was a small display but there were a lot of very cute products. I was drawn to the Illuminating Powders from the 'Chasing The Sun' collection, after a couple of swatches I was sold and purchased 2: Champagne sorbet and Warm bronzeChampagne sorbet being the lighter one and Warm bronze being the darkest shade. Let's have a look!

Tanya Burr Highlighter Review

Let me preface this review by saying that I know Tanya Burr is a very well known and successful British Youtuber - but I don't always watch her videos or follow her online content. I do, however, like to purchase products like this because 1) I'm always #teaminternet and 2) because this makeup line looks awesome. Having purchased X, Y and Z from Youtubers in the past, many of you are often under the impression that I must be a super fan and keep up with these youtubers' lives 24/7, I don't - really. I just like to see women succeed and Youtubers make a good life for themselves.

Tanya Burr Illuminating Powders Ingredients

To be honest, I wasn't sure of what I was buying when I got these Tanya Burr Cosmetics powders. In my head I'd purchased a product that would be the baby of a highlighter and a bronzer. A product I'd want to bathe my whole face in. I have many other items like this in my daily makeup stash but most of them are labeled as bronzers. I use them to make my skin look baby smooth and bring back some life into my face after applying my makeup base. After taking a closer look and having thoroughly tested these beautiful babies I can assure you these are most definitely highlighters.

Tanya Burr Illuminating Powders Swatch

The highlight on these illuminating powders from Tanya is insane, and a little out of my comfort zone, I admit. The powders are said to be velvety soft and create a stunning all-over golden glow. I can tell you that a glow factor is definitely not going to lack if you wear these, because I've never seen makeup this intense! I mean, people will be able to see your highlight from miles away, if not from the moon and I am not joking! Anyway, are these the best highlighters in the world? I don't think so, as I don't find them very wearable in the t-zone and on the forehead, but they do make for a great cheek highlight and they are indeed very soft, easy to work with and the illuminzers blend well. The reason why I'm not super enthusiastic about these is because I have issues with texture showing up on my skin with this type illuminizer. The shimmer isn't as finely mild and it makes my pores and wrinkles stand out a little more than I would like. I'm thinking I might use them as eyeshadows because the product is still stunning, I just don't find them a great fit for me and my skin.
