Trish McEvoy Essential Eye Bases

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 — color, skincare, fragrance — 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.
Trish, McEvoy, Eye Base Essentials, Sand, Soft Peach, Bare, Linen, Sheer Gold, Malibu, Demure, swatches
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.

    My experience with these is that while they work fine, there is not much product in the tube for $24! I have resisted buying more for that reason. Laura Mercier’s eye bases are very similar and a better value!

  • Estelle says:

    I’m so glad you posted these! I had a sample in Bare for a long time and LOVED it. I’ll definitely revisit these when I’m done with my current bases – I’m loving the look of Demure!

  • Katharita says:

    OMG! Thank you for swatching these! I have been wanting one but there is no Trish counter near me to see which one I need!

  • Jaimie says:

    I’ve tried this product as well….and I like it. It’s great when you don’t feel like doing a full eye; just put this base on and some eyeliner and mascara and you’re good to go. As far as her #9 perfume…..absolutely one of my favorites, but the scent does not last!!! I do all the layering, and nada. Have you noticed that????
