Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics Second Shipment Laura Geller Blush-N-Brighten in Tropic Hues Laura Geller Dream Creams Lip Palette in Como Laura Geller Baked Eye Dreams in Pink Sunset Review, Swatches, Photos

Anyone on the Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics QVC Auto Delivery?

I got my second shipment recently and man it was such a bust. The colors are quite similar to the ones that shipped with the first set. Although you can’t purchase this set I noticed that QVC is starting to offer pieces from the first set so I imagine you’ll be able to haul colors and shades from this set in the future so I might as well get the review, swatches, and photos up so you can plan ahead should you see them on the Q!

Take a look!

I like the collection alot but I couldn’t help but feel like the colors were a little too similar to the original set I reviewed for you a while ago. You can do the comparison by clicking here.

The collection includes:

  • Laura Geller Blush-N-Brighten in Tropic Hues (blend of apricot, pink, and gold)
  • Laura Geller Dream Creams Lip Palette in Como (Sparkling Pink, Soft Pink, Cool Coral, and Shimmering Bronze)
  • Laura Geller Baked Eye Dreams in Pink Sunset (shimmering champagne, dusty rose, frosted heather pink, and pinkish bronze)
  • Laura Geller I-Care waterproof eyeliner in Aquamarine
  • Laura Geller Balance-N-Brighten Baked Powder Foundation
  • Laura Geller Double-Ended Eye Brush
  • Laura Geller Retractable Lip Brush



I’ve done a full review of the set prior to this which you can check out by clicking here so I won’t go into great details on each product in this post. I did want to get photos of the products up including swatches just in case QVC starts offering these individually which I suspect they will!

If you got the set already, curious minds, what did you think of it?

I was a tad disappointed that the shades were so close to the original shipment.

    Ditto. I was amazed how similar the shades were to the first shipment. And, man….my stash of Balance n Brighten is going to need its own zipcode soon. oy.

    • the Muse

      what a bust right jody? the colors were practically complete dupes. me too…I’m using it for swaps or just going to gift it.

      • Jody

        What a bust indeed, especially after how happy I was with the first shipment. Now, if I were asked am I going to stop this AutoDelivery…. Well,… I couldn’t bring myself to click “cancel”. I’m holding out hope the next shipment is yummy.
        How about you? Are you going to continue or cancel?

        • the Muse

          jody same here and yup didnt have the heart to cancel…kinda hoping the next one will be nice. did you do the vanilla collection? that was a bust too 🙁 colors look the same in 2nd shipment! jeepers :-/

          • Jody

            I didn’t get the Vanilla set. I was out of town or something and missed it. I’ve heard that about the second shipment too. 🙁

          • the Muse

            thank god jody b/c that was a bust too lol!

  • Isis

    I think the como is my favourite dream creams yet! and I LOVE dream creams… Laura hits qvc uk with a tsv next month… soping for the uk launce of the porcelain balance and brighten,

    • the Muse

      isis do you have it?! ;-D! I hope you guys get porcelain ;-D

  • Isis

    I have porcelain yes, I get my laura stuff from 3 lovely ladies in the u.s. on e bay before they arrive in the U.K.

    • the Muse

      ;-D! I NEVER buy makeup in England/Europe, no offense! Anytime I visit I refrain. It’s just too costly ;(

  • Kris

    I haven’t canceled my 3rd shipment yet….I’m hoping you might have an advanced review of the colors so I can see if I’ll like it or not. Now that I have all the Tarte auto-deliveries, I’m just not as pumped for Laura Geller anymore. The dream creams lip stuff was a real disappointment for me. I don’t like them at all….too frosty, too sheer, and zero staying power.

    • the Muse

      sadly no go kris. wish I knew sigh….! aw sorry to hear it doll! If I hear anything will give the word!

  • Isis

    your telling me! euro to dollar is a much better idea than sterling to euro.

  • Amanda

    im glad i canceled! i canceled and returned vanilla nudes set too. it was almost identical and came with that useless brush again. i dont think ill ever do another laura geller AD again!

  • Amy

    These are such pretty colors. I have asked Laura (in person at her studio) and a couple times on her FB page to make a Dream Creams Lip Palette in “pink grapefruit” which is one of my all time fave blushes
