Beauregarde

Sydney Grace Beauregarde Multi-Chrome Shadow ($15.00 for 0.045 oz.) is a multichrome, pressed eyeshadow that has a dominant, cooler, smokier purple hue that shifts from brighter, cooler violet purple to deep purple to warmer plum to subtle, warmer copper. I found the shift to copper to be extremely difficult to see on the lid, and when swatched on my arm, only at the most extreme angles with a fair amount of direct light. For me, in person, I could see a shift from cooler to warmer purple–like violet to plum.

It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, moderately dense consistency that was emollient and a bit thicker overall, though it sat well on my skin and was fairly easy to work with. The product applied most evenly and had almost no fallout when applied with a fingertip or a wet brush, though a dry brush was possible, it just yielded light fallout. It wore well for six and a half hours before creasing faintly on me, though it didn’t worsen much more over the next couple of hours.

Formula Overview

$15.00/0.045 oz. - $333.33 Per Ounce

Multi-chromes have more dynamic shifts and tend to shift more dramatically from one color to the next. The cost of the ingredients that create the multi-chrome effect are pricey, which is why this type of product is mostly found within indie brands, and the price tag reflects the massive uptick in ingredient cost. I think if your expectations are more in line with wanting to see the distinctive three or four-part shift at a glance, you’ll be disappointed; the shift is there, but it needs a fairly large area of application to really be strong visible (like my arm swatches vs. my eyelid, even though I applied it across my entire mobile lid).

The shift factor is still more pronounced than the average duochrome (which can really get lost on the lid!) eyeshadow, and in some lighting situations, really quite cool and visible. (I did have my husband also look at the shade on my lids to verify the level of visible shift.) I didn't find that applying this particular formula over a white or black base helped to bring out the shift more or less, and wet/damp application didn't seem to have a meaningful impact on the shift either, though wet application sometimes made them appear a bit smoother or richer initially.

The texture was a a little thicker, heavier but was still creamier and smoother to the touch. It was easiest to apply with fingertips, which yielded both intense, more metallic payoff but smoother, more even coverage. I was able to apply with a firmer, flat brush, but I felt like there was a little too much slip in the product, so getting perfectly even coverage was easier with fingertips. I didn’t have trouble diffusing or blending out the edges with a brush, though. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which stayed on well for six hours before starting to crease on me; the creasing didn’t get significantly worse as time went on, but it creased earlier than is typical in my experience with the brand’s eyeshadows (but occurred for me on all of the Multi-chrome shades).

Of the 3, this is the one doing the least for me. Not because I don’t love the shade, though! Because I do! But, I’m only barely detecting a duochrome, much less a MULTI-chrome.

I’m relieved this one did pretty decently, as it’s the only SG multi-chrome I bought. I’m glad that the purple shift part is visible, as the copper shift may not have looked right on me anyway because sometimes copper is very unflattering on me. I’m looking forward to getting this. Your eye makeup look is quite pretty.

I’m such a sucker for purple and that is beautiful! I was looking at it the other day and very curious about how the multi-chrome would translate on the eye. I like that you were able to see the different purple tones coming through even on the eye (personally not worried about the copper not showing as much as long as the purple changes and it isn’t just a flat color). I might break down and get this one as my first SG eyeshadow.

This is so gorgeous! And your eye look is lovely! I appreciate the honesty about creasing. I struggle with that both with my combo oily skin and living in humid/hot Houston. These were on my list but I’m glad I didn’t get them. SO beautiful though. (I did, however, buy several other SG shadows…lol. I hope they do okay with my lids…I use primer and glitter glue, which seems to help most shadows.)

I feel like I’d have to quit blogging if I lived in a humid climate. I don’t know how to function in humidity!! 🙁
