Sydney Grace Pandora Shimmer Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a brighter, medium purple with soft, warm pink undertones and a frosted sheen. It had rich color coverage that applied well to bare skin with smooth, even color. The texture was lightly creamy, dense but not stiff or difficult to pick up with a dry brush. It blended out easily along the edges and lasted well for eight and a half hours on my lid.

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).
