High-End Makeup Brands
For the most part we all reach for our concealers come morning and start dabbing away under our eyes trying to make ourselves look like we had 10 hours of sleep when in fact we had only 6 (shhh I won’t tell if you don’t). While you’re busy concentrating under your eyes you may forget the lid area. A little highlighting and concealing on your lid can do a world of difference to make you look wide awake and fresh! Which is where Trish McEvoy Base Essentials comes into play.
Check ahead for the review!
Trish McEvoy Base Essentials is a waterproof eye base that preps your lids for eye shadow but that’s not all! This incredible multitasking tool also evens out dull lids, redness, or discoloration to create the perfect canvas for your makeup while waking up your tired eyes and making you look refreshed. You don’t have to wear shadow over Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials, you can simply dab a few dots on, blend, and walk out of your house looking natural and flawless.
Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials makes a great base and keeps shadows fresh and crease-free all day long but the Muse thinks it’s a nifty little concealer for masking my exhaustion and replacing it with fresh, awake eyes. Although I’m a fond fan of Benefit Lemon Aid
for this very reason I felt like the Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials did just as good a job with a better packaging than Lemon Aid. The base comes in a gloss style tube with sponge application, sweet, no fingers in my product! Swipe a little on, blend with a fingertip, and you’re ready to rumble.
The formula is an interesting matte cream that should appeal to anyone with terribly oily eyes as it dries down to a matte, powder-like finish that keeps shadows from slipping and sliding off the eye area. Likey!
You may wonder why you need to even bother with this when you can do the same with concealer? Concealers are very creamy and moisturizing and meant for the skin UNDER your eye where as products like Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials are specifically targeted to your upper eye area. The formula is considerably different when compared to a normal concealer.
If you’re looking for something to wake up your tired eyes that also acts as a great base to adhere shadow to your lids making it vibrant, waterproof, and crease-free, the Muse highly suggests snagging some Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials!

Are you a big fan of Guerlain cosmetics? Do you love their palettes? Do you have any HG products that you can’t leave without from Guerlain?
Or maybe Guerlain is just a bit too rich for your blood…?

As if you hadn’t already firgured this out. But of course I’m a loves it kinda girl when it comes to Guerlain. Although base and point products are not my HG, I’m a huge fan of all the LE items they introduce, particularly the palettes.
I tend to navigate towards Guerlain for many of their LE, special items since they are truly unique and simply gorgeous.
How about you?

Ok, so you need coverage. You need to conceal those dark circles, mask that evil pimple popping up on your chin, and rid yourself of possible acne scarring. No worries, the Muse is on the case with Shiseido SpotCover Foundation.
Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound while concealing all your problem areas Shiseido SpotCover Foundation is exactly what the Muse wanted and hoped for from Erase Paste. Shiseido SpotCover Foundation is from the FT Shiseido line of products available in Japanese drugstores. This branch of Shiseido is not available within the US but can be located on a few online shops.
Shiseido SpotCover Foundation is a multitasking product for concealing or as a base makeup item. It’s extremely thick and very pigmented. If you have alot to hide this would be your go to product for making your skin look beautiful again.
For concealing under eye circles it works a treat but it’s a tad too heavy. It’s heavily pigmented so it pretty much covers everything up, I imagine it could possibly cover tattoos with proper blending skills. Although it works incredible under my eyes I did notice it settled into fine lines easily and dried out my eyes a tiny bit. In it’s defense I will say my eyes are getting to a point where I have to be extra careful what I use under them due to my age (yes the Muse is fairly old now). The formula is an interesting combination of being creamy and slightly whipped. It blends well enough when using on the face although a tiny little bit goes a very long way. I can’t stress enough how very thick this so if you do indulge please use caution during application.
The product retails in Japan for 1,200 yen but I discovered it for a nice deal on my favorite site iMomoko for $14.99 USD so that was quite a good deal. Rather than yammer to friends in Japan to get it for me I just dished out the $14.99 as that’s a rather good price and not too heavily jacked up from retail.
The Muse thinks you’d like this if:
- You love thick, heavy foundations and concealers.
- You have alot to hide and you need a pigmented foundation/concealer to hide it all.
I’d like to love this product but the thickness of the formula prevents me from really enjoying it as it’s a tad too much. I’m going to revisit it though over the next few weeks and see if end up loving it. Definitely a good find for anyone who desires full on coverage.
