Cali

Sydney Grace Cali Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, pale blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, moderately powdery consistency. There aren’t a lot of shades like this to begin with, and they are often on the more powdery side with a tendency to sheer out and have fallout–this shade was no exception, though it was better-performing and workable over a lightly tacky base. It started to fade on me after seven and a half hours on me.

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.

French Hens

Sydney Grace French Hens Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium coral with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color coverage was opaque in one layer, while the texture was soft, a little drier but not enough that it appeared dry or was prone to sheering out on my skin. It blended out well along the edges and wore well for eight hours on me.

Sydney Grace Honesty Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a soft, rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, velvety consistency with a smidgen of powderiness present in the pan. The eyeshadow applied evenly to my skin and blended out without much effort.

Snow Queen

Sydney Grace Snow Queen Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a pale white with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a lightly powdery texture but was more substantial, so there was some density/thickness to the product, which enabled it to maintain more semi-opaque coverage even when applied and blended out a bit (though there was some fallout). It had nearly opaque pigmentation before blending. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

True confession; I have too much eyeshadow. I know that I should not set my gaze upon these. But I did it anyway. 🙄

French Hens and Honesty look to be excellent transition shades for those among us who still love warm e/s, and may not have quite gotten our fill yet!

Boo hoo on Cali, that’s one I would have wanted. I’ll have to see if you have a better dupe for it.
