Best of Boston

1997 Best Makeup, Counter

Trish McEvoy

New from New York, the McEvoy line offers hip, practical palettes for lips, eyes, and cheeks, and even has a zippered filofax-style case that you can fill with customized inserts (for all those important little daily appointments to powder your nose). The trained crew at Neiman’s invites you to try before you buy. Educating rather than arm-twisting, patiently demonstrating special techniques like “push and wiggle” so you can line your lids like the pros—even after you get home—they do one side of your face, then it’s your turn.
