Trish McEvoy The Demure Collection: Trish McEvoy Demure Sparkle Eye Base Review and Swatches

Anyone voyaging through lemming land at the moment in hopes they’ll score the new Trish McEvoy Demure Collection? Curious if you’re feeling the love for it.

I went to see the collection a few days ago and thought it was lovely, nothing much stood up and grabbed me at the throat as a must have but I did indulge in the Trish McEvoy Demure Sparkle Eye Base which is a revamp of the normal Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials.

Have a jump for my take!

I’ve reviewed Eye Base Essentials in more detail in a past post. I both like and dislike the product for one main reason, it’s a tad drying on my eye. Of course, Trish McEvoy Demure Sparkle Base captured my interest…need I say it? Because of the sparkle.

I’m happy to report that it’s a very simple, subtle shimmer and you probably won’t ever notice it. The shade itself is a beige pink with soft silver sparkle. You can use it as a base for shadow or on it’s own to lighten up your lid area. Basically I think of Eye Base Essentials as the posh girl’s primer, hey it’s Trish, what’s not tasty about that?

The shade is very flattering on my eye all on it’s own and it brightens up the area lovely. I topped it with a bit of the Trish McEvoy Eye Shadow in Demure and it looks pretty stunning. Just a simple, natural look.

If you’re a no nonsense makeup type that likes to keep it fresh, simple, and light, the Trish McEvoy Demure Sparkle Eye Base should appeal. A little drying formula wise but otherwise quite delightful!

    I’m a Trish McEvoy girl all the way – as long as it doesn’t involve their pricey planners! Great review and probably my next purchase. Sometimes I just don’t have time to address my eyes in the a.m., and since UDPP Eden didn’t work out for me, this sounds a much better alternative.

      amy have you tried it in bare? it’s the best shade for lighting up the eye area. Eden didn’t work for you!? oh man! I freaking loved it. It’s a creamy benefit lemon aid version, lemon aid is kinda my bag can’t live without that stuff! what didn’t you like about it?

  • Amy

    Well, I’m YELLOW! Or olive really, and Eden was just too light for me. Sad. I was actually disappointed, but am used to it. 😉

    I use UDPP in original but when I’m in a rush, I need a quick-cream base to get me out the door. I also used LM in Linen but you know how it is – always looking for the next best thing. A little shimmer works for me and if it’s right on my skin tone, I can go with red lips or nudes equally. And finish the rest of my routine while stuck in traffic. 🙂

    PS – Lemon-Aid works on my lovely fair(er) sisters but is still too light/cool for me. I’m a tricky match, which is probably the reason I’m such a chronic treasure-hunter in cosmetics. 🙂

      Hey Am! Sorry for the delayed reply girl! awww that stinks!!!!!!!!! 🙁 I freaking loved it. Aw hells yes on looking for the next best thing 😀 I think you might dig this…although it is pretty pale so you might wanna try a deeper shade on your olive skin! damn I love lemon aid!!!!!! 😀 My sis has an olive complexion, very deep and she has a hard time simply finding eyeshadows that work!

      Hope all is well!

      sorry for the delayed reply eep!

      completely different products nancy 🙂 UDPP is def my primer of choice and eye base def wont replace 🙂

  • Rosie

    This is a great base! I have to say I haven’t tried the UDPP, I know I should. This is perfect if you are lazy and don’t want to have to put too many shadows on. It is absolutely gorgeous as a base with a little shadow in the crease.

      hi rosie it’s ideal for lazy days 😀 it’s perfect on it’s own for lightening up my tired eyes 🙂
