Deep Water

Sydney Grace Deep Water Shimmer Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, navy blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense without being too firmly pressed in the pan, and easy to work with. It lasted well for eight hours on my skin before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.06 oz. – $83.33 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).

Boy Crazy

Sydney Grace Boy Crazy Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with strong, cool undertones and bluish-violet pearl. It appeared much, much lighter and bluer applied than it appeared in the pan. The texture was denser, firm without being too difficult to pick up, though a heavier hand or moderately dense brush was best with this particular shade. It had opaque pigmentation that blended out nicely and stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Saturn

Sydney Grace Saturn Shimmer Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a pearl finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was soft, a little dusty but not prone to fallout, and was easy to work with on my lid. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.

Elysian

Sydney Grace Elysian Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, dusty pink with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had rich color coverage with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that applied well to bare skin. The eyeshadow was easy to pick up, blend out, and lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Secret

Sydney Grace Secret Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light-medium coral with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture felt smooth to the touch, soft without being powdery, and sat well on my skin. It stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed any fading on my skin.

Marmalade

Sydney Grace Marmalade Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a rich orange with warm undertones and a golden, metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented with a denser, lightly creamy texture that was more firmly pressed in the pan and seemed a bit thicker overall. It was harder to apply evenly to bare skin without really pressing and gently pushing the eyeshadow into place. I found fingertips to be particularly useful with this shade for diffusing/spreading the color out. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.

Speedway

Sydney Grace Speedway Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which easily built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was soft, lightly powdery and prone to a bit of fallout if I wasn’t careful with initial placement. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed fading.

Thunderbird

Sydney Grace Thunderbird Matte Shadow ($5.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium bluish-gray with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin and didn’t sheer out too readily. The texture was smooth, velvety, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed in the pan. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.
