Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives: Trish McEvoy Naturally Irresistible Collection Petite Planner

Another in a stunning array of Nordstrom's Beauty Exclusives for the Anniversary Sale, Trish McEvoy's Naturally Irresistible Collection Petite Planner ($95) is a goldmine of pretty makeup.

Continuing in her tradition of giving you textures and colors that are eye- and complexion-enhancing, Trish's newest ready-to-wear collection features universally flattering shades for eyes, face, and lips. It is the perfect wardrobe for transitioning your beauty routine from summer to fall, all housed in Trish's iconic beauty organizer. Unzip it and there are tuck-in compartments and a pull-out zip container, along with a ring binder to hold your palettes safely in place.

The set includes the following goodies - all inside the petite planner, which is perfect for everyone who has a wardrobe of Trish's planner-friendly makeup - and those who are just getting started with this quality brand.

I took a lot of photos to show you the shades in this set. This photo taken in indirect light gave the truest look to the shades, even though my arm looks off-color. I did prime my arm with a tiny layer of foundation. These are the shades shown top to bottom on my arm.
  • New Irresistible Lip Gloss in Nude Shimmer (at top)
  • New Warming Brightening Quad (all shades blended on brush and applied)
  • New Glaze Eyeshadows in Gilded Taupe and Gilded Lily (both glazed)
  • New Eyeshadows Lily and Suede (both matte, the Lily barely shows)
  • Travel-size Classic Eye Pencil in Black (not shown on my arm)
My favorites among favorites? The Warming Brightening Quad (exquisite) and the Glaze Eyeshadows. I'm going to wear out the Gilded Taupe and Gilded Lily shadows. Their neutral sheen is beautiful! I hope Trish McEvoy plans to introduce them independently of the Beauty Exclusive. I'll try to find out.

Even if you aren't a regular Trish gal, you should check out this set. It's a fabulous value, with $190 worth of product for $95. It's available only at Nordstrom.

Update: Check out Fab over Forty for a Trish McEvoy Birthday Sale. The planner offered is very similar (but has more!). The offer is good until Friday, July 16. Nordstrom's planner is in pre-sale. The Anniversary Sale starts Friday.
