Sydney Grace Mom Ride Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easy to work with as the product applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort. The texture was silky-smooth, soft without being too powdery, and wasn’t prone to fallout. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
This is one of the new singles recently released but wasn’t part of the press samples sent ahead of the launch! I bought it on Monday and received it late Thursday, so hopefully it helps anyone who may be picking up singles on the 19th!

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.
