Tanya Burr Enchanted Dream Eyeshadow Palette Review

This palette is available at Superdrug and for £5.99. The shades are mauve and berry-toned and can work together to create some lovely, soft eye looks.
The packaging, as with all Tanya Burr's products, is beautiful. From the heart-shaped mirror to the addition of the fabric tab on the lid, the look and detail of these palettes really appeals to me and I'm sure they are a huge hit with Tanya's younger YouTube following.
The silvery lilac theme echoes the four powder colours inside, which range from the shimmery Moonlit Walk to the dark, matte Magic Carpet.

Moonlit Walk
This shimmery eye shade could also be used as a pretty highlight. It lasts well on the skin and adds a brightness to any look.

Cocoa Plum
Cocoa Plum has a subtle sheen to it and is a flattering shade to add into the crease or to line the eyes with. This shade looks smooth on the skin and also lasts well.

Berry Souffle
This looks a beautiful, matte mauve in the pan but does not transfer so well onto my eyes. It is not as pigmented as the other shades and I find it fades or blends away during the day.

Magic Carpet
The darkest shade, Magic Carpet is the most powdery of these shadows. I think the colour works very well with the others here, and if used on a damp brush this shade has good staying power.
The tones in this palette are well thought out and create lovely, mauve-toned looks. The shadows themselves are not as easy to work with as those from other highstreet brands such as Makeup Revolution, but I am sold on the fact that a whole, fool-proof look is here, beautifully boxed in four shades.
Great for starting out with eye makeup, or for easy, low-impact eye definition, I think Enchanted Dream represents good, drugstore value.
Thanks for reading,


  1. I still have to try Tanya Burr makeup products. These colours are so beautiful. I'm trying so hard not to buy makeup and use what I have as I'm running out of space. Great review Delyth x x

    1. It's so satisfying using up what you've got and rediscovering little gems in your stash!xxx

  2. I've largely ignored Tanya Burr's cosmetics line, fearing that it would be aimed at tweens. But reading your review, the shades are actually very pretty and suitable for most ages. The packaging is also lovely. Such a shame that the quality isn't on par with the likes of Makeup Revolution. I tend to prefer the quality of less affordable brands, so will be steering clear of this palette and instead picking something up from Makeup Revolution or Sleek if I want an affordable option. Xx

    1. Good move to go for Makeup Revolution eyeshadows over these. They are more pigmented and reliable in terms of colour and longevity. I would genuinely recommend Tanya Burr's lipsticks though, if the ingredients are safe for you. They are as good as any other drugstore brand xx
