I am back from my very small hiatus from my blog and social media! It wasn’t a planned break and it just happened as I went away to see family and I had all intentions of blogging, however I thought as I only had a few days with my family I wanted to spend as much time with them as I could. Anyway, the other week I bought some Tanya Burr products because have never tried any of her products before, and I really liked the look of her new range which is inspired by like holidays and everything and anything tropical. I did get a few products, which you would have seen if you follow my Instagram (link below!), but I thought I would do a little review specifically on one of her new eyeshadow palettes from the range called the My Escape Palette.
She bought out two new palettes out and I chose this one as I really liked the Khaki colours in it. I wear a lot of those colours so I thought it would suit me perfectly. Firstly with the packaging, I really like the jungle/palm tree pattern to it, even though you can’t really see it in the photo. It is made from a cardboard packaging which normally isn’t my fave because I took it away with me this weekend and it did dent a little but that was partly my fault. It is magnetic though so it doesn’t easily come open in your bag for the shadows to get smashed and ruined.
Can we also talk about how beautiful the pattern on the shadows is?! You can tell I have used the shade tree tops a few times already because the pattern is rubbing off slightly which makes me so sad because the pattern is gorgeous, however so is the shade.
I have done some swatches of the colours above and I do really like them. I love how they all have names, because personally I find that eyeshadow palettes which have names seem more luxurious and unique. ‘New perspective’ is the lightest highlighting shade, ‘Wild Jungle’ is the gorgeous green colour, ‘Tree Tops’ is the matte brown which is a really nice colour to put in the crease and then ‘Master Plan’ is the darkest brown shade.
The shadows themselves are really creamy and are really nice to apply to the lid. I would say they are not the most pigmented shades in the world, more so the darker shades, however they are definitely buildable so you can have a natural look or a more daring and dramatic look. My favourite has to be Wild Jungle and is a very good dupe for the shade Mojito in the Kylie Jenner Royal Peach Palette, however it is just a little bit darker.
When I wore this out on Saturday night I firstly applied the shade Tree Tops into my crease and to act as a transition shade. This is a good shade just to sweep across your lid when you want a subtle makeup look. I then applied the darker shade Master Plan on top of the transition shade and then I blended it out into the outer corner of my eye and created a winged look. Across the main section of my eye lid I applied Wild Jungle to add a pop of colour and then finally I added New Perspective into the inner corner to make my eye pop.
I really like this palette, and considering it is only £5.99 it is really good and so affordable! The little mirror is also really cute!
You can find the Tanya Burr My Escape palette in Superdrug here and it is also available in Feel Unique.
