Sydney Grace Comforting Light is a moderately warm-toned, medium duochrome with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $6.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Sydney Grace Comforting Light Loose Pigment ($6.00 for 0.14 oz.) has a warmer, reddish-plum base with blue-to-green shifting sparkle and shimmer that gives it a sparkling, metallic finish. The loose consistency was denser and more weighed down, which made it less messy to work with than some more finely-milled (but very powdery) loose eyeshadow formulas available.
It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, both wet and dry, though wet application yielded a more reflective, less sparkly finish that went on more smoothly from the get-go. Dry application required a bit more finesse as the product applied best by patting and pressing it on and then gently smoothing it into place, otherwise it had some fallout during application. The eyeshadow blended out evenly, but I noticed that when I worked with it dry, it was more prone to catching on skin texture/emphasizing lid texture. On me, it lasted well for eight hours before creasing faintly.

These are sold as loose pigment eye shadows. These will be best if used wet with a fixing spray, eye drops or water. Glitter glue will also help them to adhere better to the skin. These do apply dry to the skin but they won't have the intensity or sticking power like they do once they are wet.
