Sydney Grace Alpha Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a deep taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were nearly imperceptible shimmers strewn throughout the eyeshadow but I couldn't notice it on my eye. It had opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin but took more effort to diffuse along the edges for a seamless blend. The consistency was slightly firmer, a bit stiffer in the pan, and it was easiest to use with a lighter hand to build up coverage as I went. I noticed slight fading along the edges after eight hours of wear.
