Trish McEvoy Delicate Beauty Voyager Collection

October 24, 2011

In August, Trish McEvoy launched her newest Little Black Card called Delicate Beauty in her Voyager Collection Kit ($85). This is the cutest mini makeup kit I think I’ve ever seen filled with the easy-to-wear colors and mini brushes perfect for those emergency touch-up situations. It’s the perfect little case to throw in even the smallest of purses. Even though I’m not a fan of palettes that mix creams and powders on the same layer (the powder debris tends to get the cream products messy), this was just too cute to pass up.

Size-wise, it’s about the same size as my computer mouse. It’s smaller than my Goyard coin purse and I’ve photographed a mini Chanel sample perfume next to it to show the scale. The colors and descriptions are listed below.

Top Tier:
Eye Shadow Soft Peach – a soft matte pale peach-beige with tiny gold flecks
Eye Shadow Delicate Pink (new) – a soft sheer cool pink
Eye Shadow Fig (new) – matte bark color
Eye Shadow Thunder (new) – satin grey
Glaze Eye Shadow White Peach – frosted medium champagne
Glaze Eye Shadow Romance – frosted pale white-pink
Eye Definer Deep Plum – a deep iridescent plum
Eye Definer Starry Night (new) – a deep navy shimmer

Bottom Tier:
Matte Bronzer Medium – neutral sheer warm bronzer (no shimmer)
Blush Glow – shimmery coral golden glow
Classic Lip Color Vibrant Coral – bright coral-red cream
Beauty Booster Lip Gloss Sexy Petal – sheer sparkly pale pink
Brightening Line Minimizing Concealer Medium

Brushes include:
Brush 48 Blending
Dual Ended Brush 19/42 Laydown and Contour
Dual Ended Brush 11/41A Precise Eye Lining/Smudge
Covered Lip

Overall thoughts: This kit is convenient and totally squeal-worthy because of the cuteness. The colors in this kit are definitely what I would classify as classic no-fail colors. I do feel they are a bit on the safe side (except for that bright coral lip). The upside is that if you own any other Trish Black Cards, you can easily pop out this one and put in your others. I felt the cheek pans were a bit small for my taste but the blush and bronzer can be easily mixed together. The brushes are functional even though tiny. They are all made in China. I would say the quality of the brushes in the set are quite good, but not quite up to par of her regular full sized brushes. Still they function well for detail touchups.

Have you bought any of Trish’s Little Black Cards before? What do you think of her newest one? I found mine at Neimans but I believe this set is available for sale at all Trish McEvoy counters right now.

  • Never have purchased Trish anything, well not in a very long time. This is something worth seeing in person!

  • This looks lovely. Rather remids me of the Laura Mercier Luxe Books from her winter collection. Have you tried any of those?

  • What a fantastic & useful little kit! Love it

  • That looks gorgeous! The lip colors are super pretty. 🙂

  • Oh wow that's gorgeous! Perfect for taking on a weekend away. The colours look great!

  • Thoughts confirmed! This is such a cute throw-in-your bag kit with really wearable colors. And still, I love the silver packaging. I guess it's not a must-have, but I'm sorely tempted by the compact cuteness of it all! Thanks for the up close images and swatches. I've been hoping for them for a while now =)

  • This is indeed super cute and useful!

  • can you remove the eyeshadow / blush etc pans from the little black book?

    any ideas if a double decker refillable compact in delux size would be able to fit into this pouch?

    the compact looks like this


  • This looks so convenient for travel and has a nice range of colors! 🙂

    I adore little "complete face" sets like this for travel. When I used to travel frequently to Europe, I packed two small palettes: one cool and one warm. That was always more than enough to keep me well groomed for the 4-5 weeks of suitcase living my travels encompassed. I also used to keep a small multi-purpose set like this in my desk drawer at work for spur of the moment touch-ups. Trish, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, even Chanel, have made some really lovely sets.

  • Had no idea this one is so small. But it looks really cute! I am using Trish's medium compact and it's also great for carrying around.

  • SO CUTE!! I want it!

  • It is reasonably priced for all the makeup and brushes you get. I am going to check it out for an upcoming trip. Thanks!

  • This is so beautiful! I love all the little brushes you get too, they look high quality 🙂

  • I have…about 10 years ago. And even tho' I don't use it anymore, I can't bring myself to toss it, it's so cute!! As a beauty junkie, I'm emotionally attached to my first piece of "Trish"!!
