Sorry guys little late with my review of the Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics Color Collection but quite fitting as the weather is so very Spring-like today. It was nice pulling this gorgeous kit out of my review pile and indulging in tropical hues and not worrying about how I had to get out my deep sea diving gear to make my way into the snow, wet, and cold! Today we got sun, a brisk cool breeze, and the birds chirping crazily in excitement that maybe, just maybe, Spring might be on the way!
I HOPE you all got your hands on this set but if not, no worries, it’s still available so after the review if you’re wanting it you can indulge!
The set includes:
- Laura Geller Blush-N-Brighten in Tropic Hues
- Laura Geller Dream Creams Lip Palette in Tropic Hues
- Laura Geller Baked Eye Dreams in Sunset Horizon
- Laura Geller I-Care waterproof eyeliner in Purple Paradise
- Laura Geller Balance-N-Brighten Baked Powder Foundation
- Laura Geller Double-Ended Eye Brush
- Laura Geller Retractable Lip Brush
Obviously all the items are incredible and themed around the tropics. I’m a huge fan of the Tropic Hues Blush-n-Brighten and already own it. This is a beautifully blended blush in shades of golden apricot pink. On darker skin tones you can highlight with this and on lighter you’ll get a fresh burst of warm apricot on cheeks! It’s delicious and oh so lovely for both Spring and Summer.
Also included is a brand new item from Laura in the form of an eyeshadow quad compact. Laura Geller Baked Eye Dreams in Sunset Horizon is made up of a pink, copper, gold, and brown shadow that have a liquid metal finish on eyes. Each shade has a creamy, velvety formula with a beautiful color pay off. The shades all go lovingly with the Tropic Hues Blush included with the set.
Another item included is a new shade selection of Laura Geller Dream Creams Lip Palette in Tropic Hues which includes shades of Sheer Golden Shimmer, Burnished Apricot, Peachy Pink, and Deep Plum. Although I’m not a fond fav of lip palettes I really enjoyed these as they have a whipped yet firm mousse-like texture that glides on beautifully and leaves behind a metallic finish. The colors can be mixed together or worn solo depending on the look you wish to create.
You’ll also get an I-Care Eyeliner Pencil in Purple Paradise. I personally thought the shade was completely out of place with the other colors included and was a bit disappointed. I’d have loved a golden brown or perhaps a gold liner to go along with the “tropical” feel here.
And finally Laura Geller Balance-N-Brighten Baked Powder Foundation in your shade choice and two brushes are also included!
The set has to be one of my personal favorites from Laura Geller to date. The colors are very flattering for most skin types and price tag is equally nice for all full size items. I also adore the special gold lame packaging, BLING!
Sadly, I only created a quick look using the products today but I’ll do some more looks soon! Below I used the gold shadow on my lids, Tropic Hues Blush on my cheeks, and two shades from the lip palette on my lips!
