Yesterday, I received a restock of my favorite eye makeup products – a liner and mascara. It dawned on me that I hadn’t shared them here in a while (or together). So when you find a perfect “recipe” for easy and defined, everyday eyes, it needs to be shared!
I fell hard for Kevyn Aucoin Beauty ‘The Volume’ Mascara but then got distracted trying out other brands. After a series of disappointment (and even several weeks skipping mascara all together) I remembered my old favorite. I was so sick of fallout and this is the only one that stays on all day. This smaller brush is nimble and works well getting volume and pigment on all lashes.
I’ve been hanging on to the last bit of my Trish McEvoy Lash Enhancing Liquid Liner Pen – it was embarrassingly old. But I still loved it. Imagine how stoked I was when I used my fresh one this morning and the pigment and ink were brighter and bolder with my trusty formula. (note to self: replace old products more frequently!) Add in that the formula can improve the length and fullness of lashes in only 15 days, and I call that a dream eyeliner.
A friend posted an SOS this AM on Facebook: “What is your favorite eyeliner?” I didn’t have to think too long before I gave my resounding answer. I have been testing out Trish McEvoy Lash Enhancing Liquid Liner Pen and I can safely call it my current favorite.
Now first before I go on… the price. This is a bit of a doozy at $48. But I beg you to think of this more as a skin care product that doubles as makeup. And, to me, that makes the price more palpable.
The precision of the pen is nimble enough for a fine line. But even a thicker, “cat eye” look is achievable. The pigment is such that I don’t get any of that greyness that can be found so often in liquid liners.
The real highlight is the formula’s lash building properties. The conditioning action can lead to fullness and additional length in just 15 days. I have been using the liner for a couple weeks and have noticed a more defined look to my lashes even when I am not wearing the liner.
And when I do wear the liner… I get a full day of pigment which is something I haven’t found with other liquid pens. The formula is water-resistant so plan on using eye makeup remover (I like this one).

Looking to up your shower game? This little gem is rocking my shower world these days. And I must say it is totally and completely unique. Think transforming a delicious scent into a luxurious bathroom accessory / body wash.
I’ve been lusting over Trish McEvoy’s Sexy 9 Blackberry and Vanilla Musk ever since my friend, Robin, introduced me to her candles this summer. The fragrance is sultry but still gourmand. The fruit enlivens the cozy vanilla. And the scent from the body sponge really does persist after my shower.
The formula has Vitamin E, Shea Butter and natural humectants so my angry dry winter skin is soothed. The brush isn’t irritating but does provide a slight exfoliation. And most amazingly, I’ve been using this guy since Christmas and continue to get a great solid lather each time.
Bonus for the included seashell dish which transports me right back to my summer beach vacation. Available at Nordstrom.
