Trish McEvoy may not be a UK household name, but for those in the know, it has fast become a go to brand- and is consistently Liberty London’s best seller.
Having been recently reintroduced to the brand, I can see why.
Created by award winning makeup artist Trish McEvoy, the brand puts practicality at the heart of its offering, with empowerment through makeup, as is its main mission.
I started with one of their signature quilted makeup planners: a gorgeous makeup bag come filofax, not dissimilar from a cute Chanel clutch. The planner, can be filled with all of your Trish faves, and is the perfect way to carry around your essentials in style.
Mine was filled with the: Lash Curling Mascara in jet black, the Makeup Wardrobing Petit Page eyeshadow and highlighter palette, a Satin Lipstick in Sheer Iced Mocha, a Lipgloss in Irresistible Pink, the Lip and Cheek Colour in Perfect Nude, a sharpener, and the sell out Intense Gel Liner, in black.
The Lip and Cheek Colour in Perfect Nude, is a gorgeous chubby stick that warms with your skin upon application; the Lipgloss in Irresistible Pink: a punchy disco pink with petite applicator to ensure a precise pout; and theSatin Lipstick in Sheer Iced Mocha- a menthol infused, creamy lipstick with an iridescent sheen; all of which are fantastic.
For me, the absolute standouts are: the Lash Curling Mascara: housed in a super slim tube, with a small brush that works wonders in lifting and curling lashes. The Makeup Wardrobing Petit Page eyeshadow and highlighter, can be completely customised to fit your needs and ensure you’re only carrying around your favourite colours. This can be built up to include blushers, bronzers and translucent powders, or whatever else you fancy. The compact comes with a great mirror and is secured by the ring binder system. I tried two chocolate mattes, a brown shimmer and a black matte, to touch up smokey eyes on the go.
Last but not least, is the Intense Gel Eyeliner in black, which is a super soft and creamy waterproof liner, with smudger on the other end. This really is true to its name, and is a super intense pencil, that glides on to pack a real punch. It gives you sultry smokey eyes in an instant and truly lasts the night. This is without doubt, the product I reach for time and again; or whenever I need to up the ante.
