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.
Sydney Grace Optimism Loose Pigment ($6.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, emerald green with subtle, cooler undertones and warmer golden sparkle that gave it more of a neutral-to-warm tone overall. The texture was soft, finely-milled, but it had larger sparkles, too, so it was a touch "drier" to the touch in the pot. You could tell that there was more to the formula, and there was a creaminess to the product as soon as it touched my skin that helped it adhere evenly and retain its full opacity in a single layer. I had slight fallout when I worked with a dry brush, despite pressing and patting on, and fallout could be further minimize by using it with a wet brush or patting on with a fingertip. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably, and there was a smidgen of fallout over time.

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.
