TropiColor

Sydney Grace TropiColor 18-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.95 oz.) is a new and upcoming palette that releases for purchase on September 1st. It is the largest Sydney Grace palette that I can recall with a whopping 18 shades! It is magnetized, so the shades can be removed or rearranged as desired.

There were 10 matte shades and eight shimmery shades, which largely performed consistently with the brand’s eyeshadow formulas–pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. I found one matte shade, Negril, to be firmer/stiffer and the only one that felt like a real departure from the brand’s typical quality.

Coconut

Coconut is a light, yellowish beige with a semi-matte finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, slightly firmer in feel
  • Blendable, easy to apply, not prone to sheering out
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

Formula Overview

$5.25/0.06 oz. - $87.50 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.

Lignum Vitae

Lignum Vitae is a bright, medium purple with subtle, warm pink undertones and cooler blue-to-lavender pearl.

  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

Possible Dupes

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).

Wolmers

Wolmers is a light-medium blue with cool undertones and a matte finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, not too powdery nor too firmly-pressed
  • Blendable, easy to apply, not prone to sheering out
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

Formula Overview

$5.25/0.06 oz. - $87.50 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.

Negril

Negril is a darker, navy blue with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. This was the “worst” shade in the palette, as it was firmer/stiffer and harder to build up product evenly.

  • Medium, somewhat buildable coverage
  • Firmer, stiffer in the pan, harder to pick up evenly
  • Could have blended out better
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

Tropical Punch

Tropical Punch is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, moderately-dense but not stiff
  • Picked up evenly with dry brush, applied evenly, blendable
  • Long-wearing (8 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).

Oh man, I love Tina from Fancy Face so much! Her brutal, raw honesty, her sense of humor, her taste in color, and so much else over many years. BUT; me and baby blue mattes on my eyes are no bueno! My daughter, ex-husband and even my birth mother ALL have true blue eyes, and can pull these shades off in clothing or whatever. I, on the other hand, have eyes that from a short distance appear distinctly blue-green, but up close are multi-colored. One *can* see blue, minty teal, and even lime-gold going on. Whenever I go baby blue, my eyes look weird! Okay, so my rant against baby blue mattes is over, I might get this, but for now I’m super conflicted and undecided.

Looks lovely even though I’m surprised at the poor performance of Negril. But I do intend to place an order when it’s available tomorrow.

There are too many shades in this palette that wouldn’t get used so I’m going to pass on it. I absolutely love some shades, like Hellshire, Grapenut and Lignum Vitae I do think I can dupe them though.
I would never wear any of the blue mattes, unless I was cosplaying as the Tippi Hedren character in The Birds, I have tried the look it was fun, but not for every day use. That means I actually have a dupe of sorts for a pastel blue. 🙂

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!
