Sydney Grace Optimism is a slightly cool-toned, medium-dark green with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $6.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Optimism is a rich, emerald green with cool undertones and flecks of larger gold sparkle throughout. The product is in a loose format, so coverage depended somewhat on how much was picked up, but it was opaque with little product. The texture was fairly smooth and finely-milled, but it was definitely a more sparkly shade and applied best with a fingertip or dampened brush to minimize fallout opportunities. It lasted well for nine hours before fading noticeably.

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.
