Timber

Sydney Grace Timber Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a deep, forest green with subtle, warm undertones and a cooler green shimmer. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even application that blended out with little effort. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and dense without being too firmly pressed in the pan nor was it thick/heavy. It lasted for just over eight hours on me before starting to fade noticeably.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.06 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

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).

Naked Reloaded

Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.492 oz.) is the newest in the Naked series. It’s intended as a replacement of the original Naked palette, which was discontinued a couple of months ago. It’s less of a one-for-one replacement and just another take on neutral shades. It’s a very warm-toned palette with a mix of yellow, pink/red, and orange undertones running through it.

There were two more glittery shades–Angel Fire and Dreamweaver–which were less impressive without an adhesive base or spray to help them along (for pigmentation, application, and longevity). The formula on the palette feels more like Naked Heat and Naked Cherry, which is a bit drier and/or thinner, so they tend to perform noticeably better with primer than alone.

Also, the packaging seems more like a cardboard-like palette that has a fabric covering, but definitely felt less robust than Naked Heat/Naked Cherry (which are plastic) and also doesn’t have a brush; it is $5 cheaper than Naked Cherry. The fabric may get dirty over time and could be hard to clean (hard to say without longer, more regular use!).

P.S. — You can compare this palette to Anastasia Sultry here. Sultry has a few, fairly distinctive shades (Cyborg, Slate, Rose Quartz, Ember, Twig) that end up giving a different look overall, but they have some overlap so if you tend to go warmer anyway (Teak, Dystopian, Birch, Cinder, Steampunk), then your looks may end up looking more similar regardless of the palette. Sultry is going to have more contrast and depth as well.

Steel(etto)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Steel(etto) Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, limited edition cooler-toned palette (!!) that performed well! It has seven shades ranging from beige to inky black with five variations on taupe between the two. The shades coordinated well with each other with a nice mix of depth, though I caution that all but the beige and black hues went on deeper than they looked, so you might want to swatch and play a bit to get a better sense of composition and depth. The mattes were all more substantial, more velvety in feel, which helped them blend and work well with Sparkling, which was very sparkly.

Daytime

Anastasia Daytime Eyeshadow Quad ($32.00 for oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that features four warm-toned shades–gold, yellowy brown, orange, and rose gold. Those who enjoy the typical Anastasia eyeshadow formula should enjoy this quad, especially with primer, but I found the shimmery shades did not perform as well without a dampened brush. The mattes were a little dusty in the pan, but they both blended well and retained their intensity on my skin.

Sunset

Anastasia Sunset Eyeshadow Quad ($32.00 for oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that features a soft brown, silvery blue, bronze, and mid-tone taupe. It is exclusive to Anastasia’s website, and the shade Birkin is part of the permanent range (though the version in the palette is significantly better!). It’s a very workable quad, especially for those who typically use primer, which will help improve longevity and mitigate some of the dryness in the formula for a couple of shades.

Abyss

Sydney Grace Abyss Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a navy blue with cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had opaque color coverage, but the consistency was firmer and thinner, which I found made it appear a bit drier on my lid and wasn’t as blendable. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.06 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce
