Coffee Talk (Deep)

Sydney Grace Coffee Talk (Deep) 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($33.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a new, muted neutral palette from the brand that include five matte eyeshadows and four shimmer eyeshadows. All nine shades were consistent with the brand’s eyeshadow performance–pigmented, blendable, long-wearing–and the palette itself coordinated well with a good level of depth across the shades.

Crema (Deep)

Crema (Deep) is a light copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The texture was smooth, dense without being too thick or difficult to pick up. It lasted well for nine hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.06 oz. - $100.00 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).

Frappe (Deep)

Frappe (Deep) is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The consistency was soft, blendable, and not too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

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

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.06 oz. - $83.33 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.

Macchiato

Macchiato is a medium, taupe-brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery consistency that was blendable and easy to work with as it wasn’t prone to fallout or sheering out too readily. It had nearly opaque color payoff that was easily built up to full coverage if desired. This shade showed signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear.

Cold Brew (Deep)

Cold Brew (Deep) is a light, grayish-taupe with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too firmly nor too loosely-pressed into the pan, so it had very minimal kickup when picked up and no fallout during blending. It had opaque coverage that lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Java

Java is a medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage paired with a soft, smooth, and bendable texture that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan, which made it easy to work with. There were signs of fading visible after eight and a half hours of wear.

Espresso (Deep)

Espresso (Deep) is a blackened taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied more evenly and intensely in practice (on the lid) than initially swatched. The texture was silky, smooth, and more finely-milled than most of the brand’s shades. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Ristretto is a light-medium, golden pewter with warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish.

Latte

Latte is a medium bronze with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, cream-like consistency that was dense but not thick, so it “melted” once on the lid and looked very smooth and seamless. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Cuppa Joe

Cuppa Joe is a blackened olive base with warmer bronze pearl and flecks of sparkle that gave it an intense, metallic finish. The texture was soft, slightly more loosely-pressed but not prone to fallout as long as I pressed the product on initially. It had rich pigmentation that wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

My feelings exactly! I have dupes for my favourite shades and probably for all the others as well but this is so pretty and so compact and well thought out!

This palette is stunning. And no surprise that the quality is amazing. It sold out within hours of Sydney Grace putting it up for sale. I’m really sad I missed out on it and I hope it comes back in stock soon.

What a beautiful neutral palette this one is – I only wish there were far less mattes and more shimmer shades. Love the neutral vibe and the quality is excellent, as usual for SG.

This looks like a great little palette, but I have this color scheme covered and then some. So, since I really am trying to de-clutter and consolidate, it is a no-go for me. But, if I were just starting to build my eyeshadow collection, this would definitely be on the list for serious consideration…although, probably in the light version for my skin tone.

I really thought I’d want this one, however, it has dupes within my consortium of eyeshadows I’m pretty sure that I can find dupes. Would be convenient to have them all in one place, though.

I received my deep palette today and I’m kind if disappointed. The shades are much more cool toned. I can work with it, but I won’t be reaching for it as often as I hoped.
