Trish McEvoy Wishlist

As I mentioned in my previous post, Emma and I went on a little adventure through London after the Kiehl's event and we ended up going to Liberty, a very posh department store. We got there about ten minutes before closing time and we obviously headed straight for the beauty hall, where we were drawn in by the Trish McEvoy display.
Nicole, the girl working there, was extremely friendly and we chatted for a while about the famous make-up planner and which size is best, etc... A conversation that would bore most people so it's always nice to meet someone like-minded! When Emma and I told her we had blogs she asked us to write them down so she could have a look at them which was extremely flattering. Her make-up was absolutely flawless (don't even get me started on her eyeliner) and when she told us she had been there for nine hours and not touched it up, Emma and I were very impressed. It was definitely one of the best high end beauty counter experiences I've had so far so if you're ever around Liberty in London, see if you can find Nicole at the Trish McEvoy counter and ask her to do your make-up!
Obviously I came out of this experience with a little list of products that I just NEED in my life now, so I thought I'd share it with you.

This has been on my wishlist since I first saw it in a Pixiwoo video- it just seems like the perfect way to transport your makeup and I feel like it would also help me downsize a bit and only take what I really need. The names are a bit confusing, the 'petite' is the smallest one and the 'mini' is the medium size so it's best to go to a counter if you can and have a look at them. The petite is probably big enough for most people but I use a lot of products and I could fit my brushes in the mini too so I wouldn't need a separate bag for them... Unfortunately spending £46 on a makeup bag is a little excessive as a student, but a girl can dream.

I don't know if this is the right brush but Nicole showed us her favourite eye brush which was a small, tapered blending brush and it just looked perfect for getting into the crease and it was so so soft and oh my god I need to own it!

If you like a really pigmented eyeliner that is easy to smudge for a smoky look but that doesn't budge, this one is for you! I swatched it when I was at the counter and it's extremely creamy and easy to smudge but once it sets it doesn't go anywhere. I know that £22 is a lot for an eyeliner but this just might be worth it.

Oh look, it's something I could actually afford to buy! I was looking at the display of eyeshadows while Emma was talking about spending £100 on one of the makeup organisers and this colour immediately stood out to me- it's a beautiful deep plum (duh!) and I just can't stop thinking about all the looks I could use it for! I think it would add a great pop of colour if you use it lightly through the crease during the day but you could also do an intense purple eye with it at night... The possibilities are endless!

I hope you enjoyed this post and are now on your way to your nearest Trish McEvoy counter to swatch absolutely everything...
