Teen Talk - Bloggers Beauty Ranges

Bloggers Beauty Ranges

In the last year or so, a handful of well known bloggers and Youtube video creators have crossed over from being reviewers and beauty writers of sorts, to create their own beauty ranges. Admittedly it won't be to everyone's taste but I think it is fantastic and so impressive to see the progression of this fairly new community. Slowly but surely both myself and sister have bought and tried most of the beauty ranges (we are easily lead astray) launched by fellow bloggers; we have found that on the whole they have exceeded expectations. Here is a what we thought of the main ranges, some may just surprise you...

Bloggers Beauty Ranges

Real Techniques Brushes
Perhaps the original cross over line and by far our favourite - very few beauty aficionados don't own at least one Real Techniques brush and for very good reason. In a nutshell they work, offer a great range of options be it pre-made sets or individual brushes and more often than not they are really affordable. They deliver great results (on par with far more expensive tools), are pretty (who can resist metallic and pastel brushes?) and wash (no splaying, shedding or loosing shape) well - you really couldn't ask for more. The entire brush line up is not only available via Superdrug but also Boots - link, it is worth while checking all retailers as more often than not the Real Techniques brushes are on a 3 for 2 offer!

Bloggers Beauty Ranges

Zoella Beauty
Yes it is aimed at the really young but it is super affordable, beautifully scented and features some super handy products. Take for instance the Zoella Beauty Bath Fizz Bar, not only does it smell wonderful - slightly sweet and floral but the £5 bar provides enough for up to eight relaxing baths. I love that rather than using a full bath fizzer you have complete control over how much you use per use, not to mention it is great value for money. If you enjoy a budget but sweetly scented candle (somewhat floral yet fresh) you could do a lot worse than the Zoella Candle, the scent throw isn't the best but it is nice enough to have flickering away in the background. Sadly I can not find the scented candle online which is a little bizarre but it is readily available in Superdrug which I find adds to the appeal of the brand. You can shop the entire line up here - link.

Colab Dry Shampoo
This is of course the dry shampoo brain child of Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends. Admittedly it took us (my sister and I) the longest time to pick up a can or two, fobbing off all the hype as just that. Oh how wrong we were; not only do the Colab Dry Shampoo's smell utterly incredible with at least seven scents to choose from (New York and the newly launched Monaco versions are our favourites) but also two varieties: invisible and volumising. They quickly soak up any signs of oily roots, refresh and don't coat the hair in a dreaded cloud of white dust. We honestly rank them as one of the best dry shampoo's out there and the fact that they range from £2.49 - £4.49 in price only sweetens the deal. Forget Batiste this is the dry shampoo range you want to try next! You can find them via Superdrug - link. 

Bloggers Beauty Ranges

Tanya Burr Beauty
Again this is a range that can be found in Superdrug and is perhaps the most varied in terms of products: nail polish, false eye lashes and glosses. The glosses are the stand out item - well pigmented and offer a vast range of shades for every taste, without being too expensive. There is also a huge selection of nail polishes (our favourite is the pretty mint green Little Duck hue, great for Spring/Summer) and well made yet easy to apply eye lashes for every occasion to choose from - the everyday flutter eyelashes are great for beginners! You can shop the Tanya Burr Beauty here - link.

Like we have said not all the ranges will appeal to everyone but it is commendable to see how far blogging as come in the last few years.

  2. I had no idea that RealTechniques were the brainchild of bloggers! I have a few of their brushes and love them!

  3. To be honest, I'm really not into the mega gimmicky products from Tanya and Zoe. I haven't heard the best reviews of Zoe's products, and I kind of expected more from Tanya! But I suppose it just isn't my thing, I can see how they appeal to others. I do love the Real Techniques brushes, it's amazing something so big and well-loved has come from bloggers! It is wonderful that people have such amazing opportunities x

  5. I got the Real Techniques brushes when I first started getting into makeup and I love them, they're such good quality and make makeup look flawless. I love the dry shampoo too, it's become a firm favourite of mine

  8. I love the Real Techniques brushes! However, I'm yet to try any other beauty blogger brand. Really want to try Zoella's bath bar as well as some of Tanya's eyelashes!

  9. The only blogger range that I'd really like to try is the Tanya Burr range, especially the lipglosses. I love that she's got many different shades, and the products always look lovely on her :P

  10. I love the real techniques brushes and the colab dry shampoo-- I wish I could find it near me though! It's the only dry shampoo I've tried that doesn't weigh my hair down, or leave a gross residue.

  11. I love Real Techniques and the Tanya Burr range!

  12. I've actually never tried many of these ranges as they're not widely promoted in Australia, but it sounds like each of the bloggers has really taken their time when creating the collections, and used their expert opinions as consumers. I've heard the Tanya Burr range is incredible.

  14. I love Real Techniques brushes and use them on a daily basis. I haven't tried any other products from bloggers though. Co lab dry shampoo would be the one that I want to try next; however, we don't have access to it here in Australia unfortunately x

  15. I'm amazed just how far bloggers or youtubers have come. It's amazing to see and I wish them all the best with their lines. I love the Real Technique brushes. The Fizz bar is one of my favourites from the Zoella Beauty line and one I've repurchased. I love the shades on offer from Tanya Burr's range, but I'm not a huge fan of the lip glosses - there nice enough but I expected more in terms of colour pay off regarding what I saw online before hand. I do, however, love the nail polishes. x

  17. I have almost all of the real technique brushes and I'm in love with them. I have one nail polish and lip gloss by Tanya, but it's eh. I don't like the shades I got and that's my own fault, I know. I just don't care for them too much.

  18. I've only tried the Zoella fizz bar and Tanya Burr lip gloss but I was fairly impressed with both of them! The dry shampoo sounds promising, I'd definitely be interested in trying that now :-)

  19. Love this little round-up. Real Techniques is the original blogger crossover and the best I think! Sometimes I do worry though that people give fellow bloggers really good reviews just because of how big they are, though I've heard a lot of people outside of the blogosphere love Tanya's range xx

  22. Ahhh can't wait for some of these brands to maybe land over here in North America! Until then I'll debate an online order... just don't want to get hit with a big customs fee.

  24. I admit I've wanted to try a few things from these ranges but haven't yet (beyond the brushes). I might try the Colab dry shampoo first, I'm not at all impressed with Batiste and I'm trying to find a good one!

  25. You just can beat RT brushes, they're awesome! Wasn't overly impressed with the Tanya Burr gloss I tried, seemed cheap and lacking in pigment. I feel (Sorry! ) like she's riding the Pixiwoo coattails a bit. Would love to get my hands on Colab - alas can't be shipped overseas!

  26. I am yet to try out anything from Tanya's range - but everything looks fab!

  27. It was so nice to watch all my favorite youtubers releasing their own products ;) I have yet to try any of them, though.. They're not available in my area yet..

  28. I really like the real techniques brushes and the colab dry shampoo. I feel like those products really filled a gap in the market. But possibly the other products out there are just jumping on the hype of their 'celebrity' status?
