Sydney Grace Enduring Love (Light) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

 

Enduring Love (Light)

Sydney Grace Enduring Love (Light) Eyeshadow Palette ($52.00 for 0.95 oz.) is a new, permanent palette that launches on January 13th at 9AM PT. The palette features a mix of mattes and shimmers with a color story that is a bit more muted and leaned slightly cooler-toned. All of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, easy to work with, blendable, and long-wearing with very little to nitpick.

There is a Deep version of the palette, which adjusted several shades to be deeper or less white/light-based. The shades that differed the most between the two palettes were: Romeo, Juliet, Victoria, and Cherish.

Sydney Grace Romeo (Light) Pressed Pigment Shadow

Romeo (Light)

Romeo (Light) is a pale pink with warmer undertones and a bright, metallic sheen. The texture was soft, a smidgen dusty in the pan but applied evenly and didn’t sheer out too readily. I was impressed by how it didn’t drop fallout as often paler shades like this do. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

The Deep version is a light-medium orange with a golden sheen, so they’re completely different shades.

Sydney Grace Juliet (Light) Matte Shadow

Juliet (Light)

Juliet (Light) is a soft pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin without being prone to sheering out or dropping fallout. The texture was soft, velvety, and more substantial, which is what made it easier to work with than other shades that are this light and matte (often powdery). It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

It was much, much lighter and pinker compared to the Deep version.

Sydney Grace Devotion (Light) Pressed Pigment Shadow

Devotion (Light)

Devotion (Light) is a light, golden taupe with warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. The consistency felt more loosely-pressed, so it was easy to pick up too much product if I wasn’t careful as it was quite pigmented. The product applied evenly and blended out easily on my skin. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

It was warmer compared to the version in the Deep palette.

Sydney Grace Darcy (Light) Matte Shadow

Darcy (Light) is a medium, reddened plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too softly nor too firmly pressed into the pan. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

It was a shade or so lighter than the Deep version.

Sydney Grace Elizabeth (Light) Pressed Pigment Shadow

Elizabeth (Light)

Elizabeth (Light) is a brighter, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff that applied well to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges. The consistency was smooth to the touch without being powdery, and while it was dense, it wasn’t overly thick or difficult to pick up. It wore nicely for nine hours on me before fading a bit.

The color seemed slightly brighter and cooler-toned in the Light version, though once applied and blended out, it was very see the differences in person.

Ruth

Ruth is a rich, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, and it was so pigmented that a little went quite a ways that I’d recommend using a bit less than you might expect. The texture was lightly creamy, dense but not too firmly-pressed into the pan, and blended out easily on bare skin. It lasted well for nine hours before creasing slightly.

It was consistent in color with the Deep version (which was as anticipated).

Abigail (Light)

Abigail (Light) is an intense, deep purple with subtle, warm undertones and less warm-toned shimmer that gave it a pearly sheen. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy without being too dense (but it wasn’t too softly pressed that it became powdery). It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit on me.

It seemed slightly more shimmery, which gave it a richer, slightly cooler tone compared to the shade in the Deep (which had more of the Light shade’s base color).

Cherish (Light)

Cherish (Light) is a light-medium beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product that wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. The texture was soft, slightly dusty in the pan but blendable and didn’t give me fallout during application. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

This shade was significantly different than the Deep version with the Deep version being a light-medium brown with warm undertones.

Deanna

Deanna is a blackened olive with muted, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was ridiculously pigmented, so I’d recommend using less than you might think you need initially. The texture was smooth, creamy, and soft without being too loosely-pressed, though it seemed slightly less-dense compared to other shimmers in the brand’s range. It wore well for nine hours before starting to crease on me.

It was consistent in color with the Deep version (which was as anticipated).
