BEAUTY ESCAPE COSMETICS SUMMER COLLECTION: REVIEW and SWATCHES

The following items were sent as press samples. We’re not otherwise affiliated with BEC.

So Beauty Escape came out with this stuff in July. And I’m doing this blog post now. Just in time for thanksgiving. I think that what happened is that she couldn’t keep them in stock for the first few months and I didn’t want to post if they weren’t available. And then I saw something shiny and forgot all about it. Moving on.

So the collection consists of 5 ‘Chameleon Color’ eyeshadows and 3 golden highlighters. The eyeshadows are $6.50 and the highlighters are $11.50. Also keep in mind that we have a permanent discount code with BEC for 15% off (BEAUTYCULT).

Behold! I told y’all these shadows were no joke! 

Lincoln Road has a sparkly red base and it shifts copper, orange and gold.

Star Island is a deep fuchsia with blue sparkle. It shifts magenta, pink, purple and blue.

¡Azucar! is the star of the collection, which is really saying something because it’s hard to stand out in a crowd like this one. It has sheer pink base with heavy teal shimmer. It shifts between pink, blue, lavender and teal. It’s also very versatile due to the sheer base color. It’s an ideal topper or you can build it to full opacity, like I did for these swatches. 

Wynwood Walls is a deep sparkly teal with a heavy blue shift and a more subtle purple and green shift. 

Bayfront Park has grayish ice blue base color with lots of pink glitter and a pink shift. The combination of blue and pink gives it a lavender appearance from some angles.

I seldom say that you NEED something. I hate the whole ‘yaaaaassss!’, ‘fly, money, fly’ bs but I’m telling you now that you need these eyeshadows! You should really get all five but if that’s not an option, I’d say ¡Azucar!, Star Island and Bayfront Park are the most unique and probably unlike anything else in your collection.

And zee highlighters! I love a classic gold highlighter. It would be fantastic if I had tan skin to pair with it but sigh. Wrinkles. Cancer. Death. Wow that escalated quickly. Back to the review. 

My favorite is OCEAN DRIVE. It’s a pale peachy gold that will flatter skin tones medium and lighter.

 My second favorite is Dulce De Leche which is a more coppery gold. I’ve got plans to use this baby on my eyes the next time that I wear makeup!

 And lastly SOUTH BEACH is a sunny yellow gold. South Beach and Dulce De Leche will suit medium skin tones and darker but lighter girls could rock them too with a light touch. I looooooove yellow golds like South Beach on brown skin. 

All three are heavy on the shimmer without any glitter and finely milled without being powdery. BEC is one of the best makeup creators in the biz. I love her products and I hope you guys will give them a try! I promise you that you’ll be floored if you try those eyeshadows!

  1. Omg I have to buy these shadows! Those highlighters are gorgeous as well, but I don’t have the skin tone for them. 😦 Silvery/light blue highlighters seem to look best on my skin.
