California Coast (Deep)

Sydney Grace California Coast (Deep) 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($33.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a new, rosy-neutral palette that included five matte shades and four shimmer shades. Three of the shades have Light and Deep versions, which I’ve notated below with (“Deep”) and have included side-by-side comparisons. The eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, and they were consistent with the brand’s formula.

Half Moon Bay (Deep)

Half Moon Bay (Deep) is a light-medium, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The Deep version of this shade was slightly darker and warmer in its base, which was most apparent when it wasn’t reflecting light; you don’t need both versions, but I can see why the Deep version exists for the Deep palette.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, moderately-dense but not stiff
  • Picked up evenly with dry brush, applied evenly, blendable
  • Long-wearing (8.5 hours)

Formula Overview

$6.25/0.06 oz. - $104.17 Per Ounce

The shimmer eyeshadows are more consistent in pigmentation with the majority of shades having opaque color coverage. The more metallic/sparkly the shade is, the creamier and more emollient the eyeshadow felt in the pan, which often yielded really smooth application and good adherence to the lid, though a few worked better with a fingertip or a dampened brush for true-to-pan color or to get a truer finish/sheen.

Most shades, however, worked well with brushes, and I didn't have trouble applying or blending out most of the shimmer shades. The more satin to pearl like finishes tend to feel a little thinner but blend out well. These shades wore between eight and nine hours on me with some of the more foiled-like shades creasing noticeably at the end (and the less foiled-like ones fading).

Laguna (Deep)

Laguna (Deep) is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm peach undertones and a matte finish. It is much deeper and warmer compared to the Light version.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, more velvety feel, not too powdery
  • Blendable, easy to apply, not prone to sheering out
  • Long-wearing (8.5 hours)

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

Formula Overview

$5.25/0.06 oz. - $87.50 Per Ounce

The matte eyeshadows tend to be pigmented (typically semi-opaque or opaque, often buildable if they aren't opaque) with a soft, more velvety texture that has slight slip but isn't so thick that it gets difficult to use, applies unevenly, or has a lot of fallout. I've found that most of the matte eyeshadows apply and blend out without much effort but a few may take a bit more effort to diffuse along the edges. The matte formula tends to wear between eight and eight and a half hours on me.

The shimmer eyeshadows are more consistent in pigmentation with the majority of shades having opaque color coverage. The more metallic/sparkly the shade is, the creamier and more emollient the eyeshadow felt in the pan, which often yielded really smooth application and good adherence to the lid, though a few worked better with a fingertip or a dampened brush for true-to-pan color or to get a truer finish/sheen.

Most shades, however, worked well with brushes, and I didn't have trouble applying or blending out most of the shimmer shades.

I do not need more eyeshadows, but this pallette is very tempting…does anyone know if the pans are removable? The only SG palettes I have are the Temptalia collection (removable pans) and Enduring Love (not removable pans). I might really consider this if I can take out the black shade and replace it with another SG single….

Nikki Avatar

Oh, man. My wallet and makeup storage area were kinda hoping the answer was no…..I might find a light inner corner shade to replace the black, which I never use, not even as eye liner…maybe strawberries and cream would work with this bunch…
