Elizabeth Arden Tropical Escape Colour Collection

Elizabeth Arden have really stepped their game up over the years, as they continue to create some pretty amazing new products. I was recently sent the new Tropical Escape colour collection to try out, and so of course that’s exactly what I did.

This collection is made up of 3 key products that are essential for that glowing yet soft Summer look. From the “Dare to bare” bronzing body oil to the FourEver bronzing powder and Sheer Kiss lip oil, I honestly have nothing but good things so far to say.

First off the Lip Oil $51 if anything is an absolute must have, it’s this! Although we are currently in Winter this product is one you can wear all year round. We constantly need to keep our pouts hydrated, so why not do it with a product that also provides us with the perfect pop of colour, plus the size makes it so handy for your hand bag. This lip oil is exactly what we all need, to bridge the gap between colour and care if you ask me.


Next up the Body bronzing oil $69, with this being Limited Edition I suspect it’s going to sell out fast. This lightweight oil leaves the most stunning golden glow on your skin, and looks amazing worn over fake tan too. The scent is also to die for! A mix of Vanilla and coconut, it’s hard not to have all those Summer memories by the water come flooding back.

Not only does it look and smell great but this oil also has some great benefits for your skin, such as: Sunflower Seed Oil: Rich in Linoleic Acid, this oil helps maintain the skin’s barrier and decreases moisture loss.

 Jojoba Oil & Macadamia Oil: Keep skin feeling hydrated and soft.

Meadowfoam Seed Oil: Helps balance skin’s oil levels for a smooth appearance.

 Pomegranate Seed Oil: Contains Omega 5, a fatty acid that helps soothe and protect skin.

Vitamin E: A powerful antioxidant that helps protect and nourish skin with moisture.

and last but not least the FourEver Bronzing Powder $72. This compact is absolutely perfect for the warmer months. It literally covers all your contouring, bronzing, highlighting and blush needs. Each shade can be used alone, or blended together to achieve your ideal shade of warmth. It also has skin balancing ingredients, that moisturize dry skin and absorb excess oil where needed, leaving you with a stunning matte finish.
