Geese a Laying

Sydney Grace Geese a Laying Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, a smidgen powdery in the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout or sheering out too readily during application. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

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.

Toffee

Sydney Grace Toffee Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a very light brown with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow yielded rich pigmentation in a single pass, which applied well to bare skin and diffused easily along the edge but didn’t lose its coverage too readily.

The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly nor too softly pressed into the pan. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Fairytale

Sydney Grace Fairytale Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light pink with fairly warm undertones paired with a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer paired with a soft, silky consistency that was a touch powdery in the pan but not during application (no fallout, didn’t sheer out too easily). It wore nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Iced Mocha

Sydney Grace Iced Mocha Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light, taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely as it didn’t lose its coverage too readily.

The texture was soft, smooth, and lightly powdery in the pan but not prone to fallout during application. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Harvest

Sydney Grace Harvest Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warmer orange undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color coverage in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin as the color went on evenly and diffused easily along the edges.

The consistency was soft, silky, and smooth without being too firmly nor too softly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Lords a Leaping

Sydney Grace Lords a Leaping Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with less than a second layer.

The texture was soft, a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it blended out with ease and wasn’t prone to fallout. This shade lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Just me but from the name, I gathered that Iced Mocha would have a bit of “ice” to it – a bit of shimmer. It’s an odd name for a matte shadow.

I have geese a laying but it emphasizes dryness on my lids, especially on the inner corner. I should try mixing it with a light shimmer or highlighter as that often helps mattes go on more smoothly for me. Of course it turns the finish to satin.

Lords A Leaping, Harvest and Iced Mocha look so lovely when used in an eye look! I do have dupes for Lords A Leaping, but oddly not the other two above mentioned. And yet, they do remind of ones I own…weird, eh?

I love a good yellow eyeshadow and Geese a Laying looks like it fits the bill. Well that’s settled. Time for me to try out this brand and add color to my dreary lockdown!

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
