After absolutely loving the Trish McEvoy Confidence To Go Kit reviewed last week, it’s more or less the opposite for the Light & Lift Eye Colour Palette III. There are a couple of things technically wrong with it – for a start, the pans are all rather loose in the palette. When you dip your brush, they actually move and I think for a £55 palette, that is poor. The other thing that I noticed immediately is that it comes in box that is far bigger than the actual palette.
If you bought it on line I think you’d be surprised (as I was) to find the size of the palette isn’t as big as the box. It seems like a form of slack fill, where the packaging makes it appear that you get more product than you actually do, even though the weight is usually written clearly. A kind of tricking the eye. Strangely, there is no weight written on this packaging although it does say the palette is made in China and the contents are USA made.
The colours don’t seem terribly inspiring either – oh dear! I will say that I checked the Trish website and there are suggestions for a ‘Noon Look’ amongst others. Noon look? What is this noon look and who has time! They’re not exactly instructive either, “Sweep Deep Cashmere into the crease. *Dab Cream onto the browbone, lid and inner corner.”
As you can see, though, the pigment is good – it’s very smooth on application and not too droppy for a powder formula and so if you don’t have any of these shades already covered off it could be useful. But, it’s £55 and for that money, I don’t want wobbly pans and slackfill. You can find it HERE. I rarely have a bad word to say about this brand so this palette is a surprise but even talking about Trish I’ve got a sudden longing for her Snowdrop & Crystal Flowers fragrance – one of the most winter cheery fragrances I can think of because it put spring on your mind. It’s HERE.
