Today I have some photos of two pieces I purchased from Trish McEvoy's Resort collection which was released a couple of months ago. I took these photos a while back and then life got in the way and I haven't had a chance to post them until now, but the eyeshadow ($16) and bronzer ($35) are not limited edition products and are currently available at trishmcevoy.com and local counters.
This was a small collection that included some existing products, such as the Dual Resort bronzer, and the #30 Eye Blending Brush, along with a new Classic Lip Color in Natural 16 (not pictured), a new Eye Base Essentials in Rested, and the new eyeshadow featured here, a plum/mulberry wine shade called Glamorous.

When I purchased Dual Resort sight unseen from the Trish website, I wondered what the difference is between Dual Resort and Dual Resort 2 bronzer, which I've had for a while. I hope these photos will be helpful to show the variation between these two. They are both lovely and flattering shades and have a soft and buttery texture. Dual Resort 2 is slightly darker and warmer on application and may be preferred by those with deeper skin tones; however, I can use either of these on my fair-medium skin (I match to Bobbi Brown Sand). The lighter half of Dual Resort makes a nice subtle highlighter.
The picture below is most accurate color-wise:
Glamorous is a nice addition to the Trish McEvoy permanent eyeshadow collection. It has medium pigmentation the usual nice smooth Trish texture. This is the kind of shade, though, that must be used carefully as it does have reddish tones which can potentially make one look bruised, sickly or tired. To counteract this effect I make sure to use lots of mascara and a dark eyeliner near the lashline.
Just for fun I've included some comparisons below with some of the other shadows in my collection. The darkest "definer" shadows, Amethyst, Deep Amethyst, and Deep Aubergine are designed to be liners when used with a liquid transformer.
