Sydney Grace Be Mine (Light) Eyeshadow Palette

Be Mine (Light)

Sydney Grace Be Mine (Light) Eyeshadow Palette is a new, permanent eyeshadow palette with 15 shades divided into seven matte and eight shimmer shades. The palette is available in two versions: light and deep, with six shades adjusted to work better on lighter vs. darker skin tones. These shades are denoted by “(Light)” after the shade name. It’s a good option for those who prefer more neutral-to-warm, slightly muted neutral eyeshadows with a pink undertone, and it’s consistent with the brand’s high quality formulas.

All Mine (Light)

All Mine (Light) is a light beige with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented, with a smooth, lightly creamy, and moderately dense texture that was easy to pick up with a dry brush. This color lasted for eight hours before fading slightly. It is lighter, more golden, and of higher quality (though not as firmly pressed) than the Deep version.

Baby Cakes

Baby Cakes is a light-medium olive gold with a metallic sheen and muted, warm undertones. The color payoff was opaque, and the texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and moderately dense without being overly packed in the pan. It stayed on me for about eight hours before fading noticeably.

Love Me (Light)

Love Me (Light) is a taupe-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish in a medium-dark shade. The texture was slightly firmer and thinner than most of the brand’s mattes, which made it more prone to darkening if I wasn’t careful. It provided opaque color coverage that lasted for eight hours before fading visibly. When compared to the Deep version, it was lighter and grayer.

Romance

Romance is a dark taupe-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage and a slightly firmer texture, making it easier to use as a buildable matte rather than something packed on. It lasted for eight hours on me before beginning to fade.

Darling (Light)

Darling (Light) is a medium pink with a matte finish and moderate, warm undertones. It had a smooth, almost velvety texture that wasn’t too powdery, so it blended out beautifully without leaving any fallout. The eyeshadow had a full color payoff and lasted on me for eight hours. When compared to the Deep version, it was several shades lighter and pinker, with less warmth.

Pucker Up

Pucker Up is a medium-dark plummy-brown with a subtle warm undertone and a matte finish. It provided mostly opaque, buildable color coverage that was easy to apply to bare skin. The eyeshadow had a soft, slightly thin texture that was easy to blend and work with. This color lasted for eight hours before fading slightly.

Cupid

Cupid is a medium pinky-plum shade with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was slightly dense, lightly emollient, and easily blendable with a dry brush. It had an opaque color payoff that lasted for eight hours before visibly fading.

Crush on You

Crush on You is a dark, golden olive with a black base and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow provided opaque color coverage in a single layer, adhered well to bare skin, and was free of fallout. It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was dense but not overly so. It wore well for eight and a half hours.

Eye Candy

Eye Candy is a rich olive green with muted, warm undertones and a gleaming, metallic finish. It had a richly pigmented, almost cream-like texture to the touch, but it was dense and firm enough not to be powdery while still blending out easily. It lasted about eight hours before starting to fade.

I Love You

I Love You is a dark, plummy purple with warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. The eyeshadow provided full color coverage in a single layer and was easily picked up with a dry brush due to the texture being lightly emollient, blendable but not too thick. It stayed on for about eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Smitten

Smitten is a medium-dark, warmer black with a metallic finish that sparkles slightly throughout. It was denser and thicker than most of the brand’s eyeshadows, which could have been to help the more visible sparkles bind with the underlying product, but it did require a heavier hand to pick up product evenly. This color lasted for eight and a half hours before creasing.

My Person

My Person has a matte finish and is a soft, almost grayish-black color. It had a soft, velvety texture that was thin, blendable, and not too powdery, with mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation. It lasted for about eight hours before noticeably fading.
