Lavender Hill

Sydney Grace Lavender Hill Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.25 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium, brighter lavender with cooler undertones and warmer, fine golden pearl that gave it a shiny, metallic finish.

  • 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).

I love that I can actually see the various colors throughout the swatch and not just in the pan. A lot of times I’ve found with shadows that look like this in the pan it doesn’t translate to wear.

I really am very fond of these grey toned taupes with the metallic finishes and I think SG has done them extremely well. I notice that there are not too many dupe for the blackened plum shade – and this is so true. When I was looking for a matte plum taupe for my sister, who loves this shade, there was none to be found. It is a lovely colour.

I received all of the mystery/grab bag/limited edition shades from SG’s sale and I am loving all these (for me) one-and-done smokey taupey shades. I am glad to see one of them is a dupe for Your Best because my Chase Your Dreams palette is in that limbo my ADHD brain calls “I know it’s somewhere so it’s not LOST, I just can’t find it right now.” So that’ll do until it turns up, as Your Best is my absolute favorite shade.
