Blue Mist

Sydney Grace Blue Mist Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright white with cool, blue iridescent shimmer that gave it a more metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that applied well to bare skin and blended out with little effort. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

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).

Swimming Swans

Sydney Grace Swimming Swans Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, light-medium blue with cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency was thicker and more cream-like than most of the brand’s eyeshadows in the same formula, which made it work better with flat, synthetic brushes or fingertips as fluffier, natural-hair brushes didn’t pick it up as well and didn’t lay it down as evenly. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours on me before creasing a bit.

Narrow Path

Sydney Grace Narrow Path Shimmer Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium blue-teal base with warmer, greenish-gold shimmer and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy, more emollient texture that was harder to apply evenly and diffuse seamlessly along the edges. For me, it seemed to be easiest to use as a lid shade with other eyeshadows around it to blend it out. It lasted well for eight hours before creasing faintly on me.

Perfect Storm

Sydney Grace Perfect Storm Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, light-medium blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a smooth, velvety consistency that was substantial without being too powdery (though a little powdery in the pan!). I was impressed by how well this adhered to bare skin without sheering out immediately. It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

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.

Perfect Vacation

Sydney Grace Perfect Vacation Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, light-medium lime green with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a lightly creamy, denser consistency that wasn’t too firmly-pressed in the pan that it became difficult to work with. The eyeshadow applied evenly to my lid and blended out well along the edges, but it appeared more muted and less vibrant after initial application. It wore well for eight hours on me before it started to crease slightly.

Turtle Bay

Sydney Grace Turtle Bay Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium grass green with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, while the texture was smooth, velvety, and a smidgen dusty in the pan but applied well to bare skin without fallout issues. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before it started to show signs of fading.

Sydney Grace Rover Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark taupe with warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even application. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy without being too thick or too dense in the pan. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

I’m impressed SG pulled off such a good matte light blue. Swimming Swans is amazing. I like all these shades very much. SG just seems to nail the greens every time.
