Sydney Grace Blue Mist Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright white with cool, blue iridescent shimmer that gave it a more metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that applied well to bare skin and blended out with little effort. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

The shimmer eyeshadows are more consistent in pigmentation with the majority of shades having opaque color coverage. The more metallic/sparkly the shade is, the creamier and more emollient the eyeshadow felt in the pan, which often yielded really smooth application and good adherence to the lid, though a few worked better with a fingertip or a dampened brush for true-to-pan color or to get a truer finish/sheen. Most shades, however, worked well with brushes, and I didn't have trouble applying or blending out most of the shimmer shades. The more satin to pearl like finishes tend to feel a little thinner but blend out well. These shades wore between eight and nine hours on me with some of the more foiled-like shades creasing noticeably at the end (and the less foiled-like ones fading).
