Sydney Grace Vanguard is a very warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a matte finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $5.00 and contains 0.06 oz.
Sydney Grace Vanguard Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a murky, greenish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, but it needed a second layer to be more true-to-pan in color and opaque in coverage. The texture was fairly soft, though it seemed thinner and on the drier side compared to most of the brand's mattes (which have more of a substantial, velvety feel to me). It wore nicely for eight hours before starting to fade noticeably on my eye.
