Sydney Grace Boardwalk, Cranberry Streusel, I Don’t Know Cream Shadows Reviews & Swatches


Sydney Grace Boardwalk Cream Shadow is a slightly muted, coppery brown with warm undertones and a bright, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented where a little went a long, long way, so I highly recommend squeezing out a tiny dab of product onto the back of your hand or onto a mixing palette, particularly for those looking for more precise or sheerer application. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and spreadable with a thin, comfortable dry down that was still blendable along the edges (while still being quite budge-proof!). It wore well for 10 hours on me before fading slightly.

Cranberry Streusel

Sydney Grace Cranberry Streusel Cream Shadow is a bright, medium plum with warm, red undertones and a slightly cooler overtone. The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and thin without being runny, so it was easy to apply in a thin, even layer of product but it didn’t sheer out readily (which you may or may not like). It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and I’d say use a lot less than you’d expect to avoid over-applying. The product dried down quickly but was still blendable along the edges to soften them, but you wouldn’t be able to sheer it out after it sets. It stayed on nicely for ten and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.


I Don’t Know

Sydney Grace I Don’t Know Cream Shadow is a muted, antique gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was slightly less metallic than most shades that I’ve tried in the range, but it was still reflective and foil-like. It had excellent color coverage that adhered evenly and spread easily across my skin without losing its intensity or opacity. For a sheerer wash of color, I’d recommend applying a bit on the back of your hand or a mixing palette and then applying with fingertips or a fluffy brush. The consistency was lightweight, spreadable, and quick to dry down, though I could soften and blend the edges between shades after they dried down. It wore well for 10 hours on me before fading a bit.
