Sydney Grace Paris Skies Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, medium mauve with cooler undertones and warmer, pale golden shimmer throughout. It straddled the line between pink and lavender to me (and the two merged gives me more mauve-vibes as a result). The warmer, but contrasting, shimmer gave it the effect of a two-in-one product where there was a distinctive, golden highlight but a definite, mauve blush tone below.
The texture was smooth, cream-like, and dense without being too thick or too firmly pressed into the pan. It had opaque color coverage that was easy to apply and blend out (or use with a lighter hand for sheerer coverage). This shade stayed on beautifully for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.
