If you weren’t already familiar with the brand, Trish McEvoy is probably best known for her “planners,” her brushes, and her fragrances (#9 Blackberry and Vanilla Musk, anyone?).
Her line covers a lot of ground —Â color, skincare, fragrance —Â but is surprisingly well edited; her full list of products is not overwhelming (and Trish is said to be intimately involved with the creation of all her products. Her grandmother owned a perfumery; her husband is a dermatologist). Everything is also intended to be super travel-friendly (hence the planners).
Anyway, one of her most popular products is her Essential Eye Base, a cream eyeshadow base in a long tube with a doe’s foot applicator. (Similar to Laura Mercier’s Eye Basics.) These have a kind of whipped texture, and my sales associate assures me they will survive a Madonna concert without creasing, flaking, or smudging.
Forgive that the swatches are unblended to best show color, but I think the shades are somewhat misleadingly named. Sand is a light pink (to brighten the lid when blended); Soft Peach is peach-pink. Bare is peachy. Linen is a sandy brown. Sheer Gold is shimmery peach-gold (put an eyeshadow on top of this and it will really pop); Malibu is shimmery, warm, copper-bronze. Demure (aptly named) is a pale beige pink, which reveals subtle sparkle when you blend it out.
