Tanya Burr Galaxy Eye Palette

The Galaxy Eye Palette by Tanya Burr Cosmetics is a mini eye palette that features the four shades brilliantly named Snowflake, Moonlight, Stormy Sky and Starry Night. Cased within a small compact Square its easily accessible to your handbag or make up case and features Tanya’s trademark heart shaped mirror.

The packaging itself is cute with its silvery box and shiny stars to add to the space theme, the scalloped framing is again a classic feature of the brand.

At a glance the colours are absolutely lovely but unfortunately on application they aren’t very impressive which the swatches below will show. I’m not sure if the other palettes have poor application or if its just this one. As expected the shimmery shades do have fall out but I think this happens with most glitter eye-shadows.

From left to right is Snowflake, Moonlight, Stormy Sky and Starry Night. My favourite colour pre-application is Moonlight which is a shimmery brown/nude but as you can see from the swatch it isn’t very visible.

I don’t really use Snowflake and Starry Night isn’t as shimmery as it looks in the box. I feel in order to get any pay off from the brown colours is to pack quite a lot on your eyelid, even then the colours are still mundane.

Overall I didn’t find this palette very impressive, I wouldn’t buy this one again when it runs out but it hasn’t put me off buying Tanya Burr Cosmetics in the future as I love her lip-glosses and nail varnishes.

Firstly I love the sleek packaging and the gold lids have the signature heart logo on top. Tanya created a great range of colours that apply easily, aren’t sticky and smell like watermelon!

From left to right we have Afternoon Tea, Aphrodite, Champagne Toast and Berry Picking. 

The prices usually range from around £5.99 however, more recently you can actually pick some colours up for 99p in Superdrug, im not sure if these are being discounted to make room for the new range or whether they are just on offer.

I absolutely love Berry Picking which leaves a nice stain after the gloss has worn off, I managed to get it for 99p as well as Aphrodite. I love all of the colours, however I find that Champagne Toast works better when applied on top of a lipstick or crayon etc… this is just due to being a sheer gloss.

I can’t wait to try Tanya’s new range!
