Escape to the Tropics and Tropics lip duo review and swatches

Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics collection $54.12



This 7 piece collection consists of a Balance N Brighten foundation, Tropic Hues blush and lip quad, Sunset Horizon eye quad, Purple Paradise eyeliner, lip brush and double ended eye brush.


Eye quad

dry

wet

Eye quad- Sunset Horizon, four metallic shades consisting of a white gold, pink, copper and bronze/brown. Applied dry they are very sheer, but wet have a metallic sheen and more intensity.


Tropic Hues baked blush

Tropic Hues swatch

Tropic Hues baked blush is the most gorgeous blush Laura Geller makes. It is the perfect blend of pink/peach and gold for a sunkissed, brightened look. It just wakes the face up and adds a youthful radiance and glow to the skin.


Tropic Hues lip quad

Tropic Hues lip quad is very sheer like a gloss and just puts a sheer hint of color on the lips. The lightest color has some sparkle to it.

The Tropics lip duo $24.80- I wanted to add this onto this review because of the similarity and it will go perfectly with this kit. I added a comparison photo below with the lip quad shades beside the lipstick and gloss. This lipstick is a nice addition to any make-up kit. It is the perfect everyday lipstick. And the gloss smells divine.

Final Thoughts:

You really can't go wrong with this kit. All the colors are sheer enough for day time and neutral enough for every day. It is a complete face (minus mascara and brows) all in one kit. I recommend adding in Bronze N Brighten, like I did. Once my make-up settled into my skin, I had the most perfect glow to my face with this collection. If you dislike shimmer or metallic you may want to skip it. The blush alone is worth getting the kit for, the rest of the pieces are a bonus.
