Haley

Sydney Grace Haley Lip Cream ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish with very faint pearl through it. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and spread fairly evenly across my lips with nearly opaque coverage in a single layer. There was light tackiness, and it was thicker than the typical gloss on the market, though it lasted longer at five hours (and was hydrating over time).

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.15 oz. - $66.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "cross between a lipgloss and a lipstick" that is "moisturizing." The brand recommends using a lip liner with darker colors. It had the coverage of a lipstick with more of the feel and application of a lipgloss in my experience.

The majority of the shades have good opacity and are near-to or full coverage, which go on with minimal to no streaking but a few shades settled into my deeper lip lines more noticeably. The texture was more light-medium in thickness with moderate tackiness, and while not heavy, it was a heavier gloss than most on the market currently. It has a very smooth feel as it goes on, and it was comfortable to wear, hydration, and lasted longer than the average gloss--five to six hours.

Shaley

Sydney Grace Shaley Lip Cream ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke, though it wasn’t full coverage. The texture was lightly creamy, somewhat tacky, and thicker than the average gloss, though it was comfortable and hydrating to wear.

There was some product that settled into my lip lines despite the color applying rather evenly overall. It stayed on well for four and a half hours.

SJ

Sydney Grace SJ Lip Cream ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish with barely-there pearl. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips in one layer.

There was a very small amount of product that settled into my deeper lip lines, but it wasn’t noticeable in person. The consistency was lightweight, despite being more light-medium in thickness and somewhat sticky, spreadable, and comfortable to wear. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Haley and Shakey don’t quite rock my world, but SJ is exactly my type of shade! It looks like my perfect everyday, throw & go lipgloss.

Haley and Shaley are on my wishlist! I’m going nuts waiting to see what all new products SG is releasing for the Christmas in July sale.

I don’t really love the way these sit on the lips especially in the extreme close ups. I know that from a distance they likely look great but the lip lines and deeper lip lines I have related to age are not going to be very forgiving for this formula, I think.

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!
