Essence Ticket to Paradise Trend Edition* Mini Review and Swatches

I make absolutely no secret of my love for all things Essence, especially their limited edition products. There's something about knowing an Essence product won't be available forever that makes it 100 x more appealing in, well, my eyes, as well as so many other beauty bloggers. When the Essence Ticket to Paradise Trend Edition surprised me in the mail one day last week I was more than thrilled and now I'm here to tell you all about the collection.
Ticket to Paradise Nail Polish
There are four absolutely lovely nail polish shades in this collection, #01 Dive With Me To The Island, #02 Tropical Heat, #03 Sun Said Red and #04 My Treasure Island. The nail polishes are a bit glossier than other nail polishes in my collection and I really like that, they're so shiny and summery. These nail polishes can be yours for a mere $2.95 each.
Ticket to Paradise Glossy Lipliner
These are one of my favourite products from the collection. The two lip pencils, #01 Sun Said Red and #02 My Treasure Island, are somewhat sheer in their pigmentation but what's to be expected with a glossy lip product. The apply smoothly and evenly and look lovely. I've used them a fair bit since receiving them. These will be retailing for $2.25 - such a bargain in my opinion.
Ticket to Paradise Shimmer Powder
No Essence Trend Edition is complete without a highlighting powder and Ticket to Paradise is no exception. This looks a lot like the highlighting powder they release in their Circus Circus Trend Edition but I didn't grab that one so I'm not too sure. This highlighter is quite lovely to swatch, though I haven't played with it on the face yet. I think it'd make a lovely eye shadow too. This will be available for $5.35.
Ticket to Paradise Lip Gloss
This is probably the product that impressed me the least. There's three lip glosses in the collection but I can't find the third, a blue with blue with turquoise shimmer, for the life of me. They all have lovely scents but, in terms of longevity, there's next to nothing. The two colours featured above are #02 My Treasure Island and #01 Sun Said Red. These lip glosses are retailing for $3.50.
Ticket to Paradise Eye Shadow
There are three cream eye shadows in the Ticket to Paradise collection; a turquoise, a blue and a yellow gold. All three have a subtle shimmer and are quite sheer in colour. The formula is super nice and refreshing, they feel so wet on the eye. The colours are #01 Dive With Me To The Island, #02 Deep Sea Baby and #03 Tropical Heat. These retail for $4.95.
Ticket to Paradise Hair Mascara
The last product in this Trend Edition is two hair mascaras, a purple called #01 Rumble In The Jungle and a turquoise called #02 Dive With Me To The Island. I know, I haven't seen hair mascara since I was about 12. I am actually considering putting turquoise in my hair so I've been having a play with #02 Dive With Me To The Island and at some point I must've put it down as I couldn't find it anywhere to photograph. Sorry. These will be available for $5.35 and I think they're a great way to brighten up your hair!

I'm so excited for the release of the Essence Ticket to Paradise* Trend Edition as I think you'll all be super impressed with the products available, especially the Glossy Lip Liners. If something in this post caught your eye, please note that the Essence Ticket to Paradise* Trend Edition will be available exclusively in Priceline stores this December.
