Sydney Grace The Queen Cream Shadow (2020) ($8.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a light-medium taupe with warmer, reddish undertones and a metallic sheen. It appeared more taupe in hue when applied at full coverage, whereas sheering it out brought out the redder, warmer tones and had it looking more brownish.
The texture was smooth, fluid, and lightly creamy with a lighter-weight, thin feel, so it was quick to dry down, though it was more powder-like and easy to diffuse along the edges even though it had "set." It had opaque color coverage that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before creasing and closer to 10 hours before fading visibly.
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.
