A while ago I bought three eyeshadow palettes from the Tanya Burr Cosmetics collection. Tanya Burr has always been one of my favourite Youtubers so I was overly excited to give these palettes a try. I already reviewed the Galaxy Eye Palette and the amazing Enchanted Eye Palette, so today it’s time to review the last one of the three: the Fairytale Eye Palette. So, if you’re interested in reading all about this gorgeous and adorable looking palette, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off by discussing the packaging. Like all three, and all of the other Tanya Burr palettes, it comes in an adorable looking packaging. It’s made out of cardboard and it’s quite thick. It looks like a little booklet to me and I like it. It’s pink and has hearts all over it and just everything about it is amazing. On the inside it has a mirror shaped like a love heart which is both adorable and very efficient. It’s obviously not the most luxurious feeling packaging, but it’s one of the most adorable packagings I’ve ever seen!
The Fairytale Eye Palette is from the same collection as the Galaxy Eye Palette which I’ve already reviewed. It’s not the first range she ever launched, but it’s an older one. Tanya has come out with so many collections right now which are beautiful as well, but this particular palette just really spoke to me!
Tanya Burr Cosmetics Fairytale Eye Palette – €7,20
On the back of the palette Tanya explains us how you could use these shadows. After reviewing the other two palettes I’ve realised that this recommendation is the same on every palette, so it’s not specified for these shades. I also don’t always agree with the way she recommends to apply it, so I would say just roll with it and do whatever you’re feeling. But if you aren’t that experienced with makeup you could use these recommendations as a guideline. It could definitely be helpful!
Having said that, let’s discuss the shades. The first shade in this palette, the one in the top left corner, is called Cream Tea. I absolutely love the name and I love the shade as well. It’s a very pretty matte white shade with a bit of a creamy tone to it. It’s just an essential in any palette and it’s also a really nice shade of white so that’s great.
Next to that is Velvet Cushion. Again, what an adorable little name. Velvet Cushion is another one of those essential eyeshadow shades. It’s a matte medium brown, the perfect transition colour but also perfect as a crease colour if you’re going for something very light and soft. That totally depends on your personal preferences of course.
What I do really like about this palette so far is that it does come with the essentials. Lots of palettes actually miss a matte white shade and a matte medium brown, which for me just can’t be missed.
Anyway, moving on to the shade in the bottom left corner. This one is called Nlohomorn. I have no clue what that’s supposed to mean, but lord it’s a pretty shade. It’s a cool toned brown, or a taupe shade, with tons of shimmer to it. I absolutely love it, it’s the perfect eyelid shade if you’re going for a more smokey look. If you prefer to keep things natural you could also use it as a crease colour.
Lastly we have Witches Cat. This is a matte black shade which, again, is an essential eyeshadow shade. I have to say that I don’t always use black, but it’s nice to have a couple of good matte black shades in your collection isn’t it? Especially if it comes in a tiny little palette like this filled with even more essentials. Whenever another palette misses essentials like this I just take this with me as well because it doesn’t take in too much space and it does have all of those essentials in it.
But enough about that, let’s move on to the quality of these shadows. Overall I’m very impressed by the quality of the Tanya Burr Cosmetics eyeshadows. They’re quite creamy, very pigmented and easy to work with. So far I have noticed that they tend to be a little powdery, but not in a way they cause a lot of fallout. Not at all.
The pigmentation of literally every shadow in this palette is impressive. The only one that seems a little less impressive is Velvet Cushion, but that’s because it’s pretty close to my mothers’ skintone (yes, this is my mothers’ arm. She’s my personal arm model haha). On the eyes Velvet Cushion is really nice actually. It’s very creamy and super easy to blend. I really love wearing it.
I’m also very impressed by how pigmented those matte shades are. Shimmers usually are pretty pigmented in budget proof palettes, but mattes aren’t always that great. They also tend to feel pretty dry, but that’s not the case with these Tanya Burr mattes. These are creamy, blendable and super nice to work with. Yes, they’re a tad with powdery, but that really doesn’t bother me when I’m using them.
Lastly I want to mention that I like how these shadows don’t fade when you’re blending them. They won’t merge together and form 1 big blob of shadow. I do think the look can be improved by accentuating some colours a little bit after blending, but the shadows don’t fade a lot when you’re blending.
Overall this Tanya Burr Fairytale Eye Palette is just as great as the other two Tanya Burr Cosmetics palettes I’ve tried so far. The shades are gorgeous, this palette contains three gorgeous basics and a stunning shimmery shade. The quality is very impressive as well. The shadows are super soft and creamy, even the mattes, and they are incredibly pigmented and nice to work with. I’m a huge fan. Props to Tanya!
And that’s everything for today! I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and be sure to let me know if you’ve ever tried any of the Tanya Burr Cosmetics products and if so, be sure to let me know how you like them!
