Sydney Grace Awakening Cream Shadow (2020) ($8.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deeper purple with subtle, warm undertones and a smooth, pearl-like sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a lightweight, fluid consistency that felt moderately emollient initially but was quick to dry down to a more powder-like finish, so it was "set" but still movable and blendable along the edges. The eyeshadow stayed on well for nine hours before creasing visibly in my deeper crease but didn't show signs of fading for 10 hours on my actual lid.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
These shadows are made to dry down to a smudge proof finish, they are not waterproof but they will last all day on the lids. Put a dab (a little goes a long way) on the back of your hand or makeup palette, and use a fluffy flat (not dense) lid brush, and brush it onto the lids. They do dry fairly quickly so work 1 eye at a time. After it has dried down, and you find that you have missed a spot or it isn't as perfect as you would like, don't be afraid to rub gently back and forth - seriously it won't mess it up.
