Sydney Grace Raspberry Kiss Eyeshadow Bundle Review & Swatches

 

Raspberry Kiss

Sydney Grace Raspberry Kiss 9-Pan Bundle ($33.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a new, permanent bundle that features nine shades across pink and plum tones. There are four mattes and five shimmers in the set, and all of the shades performed well: they were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. They also coordinated well together, and I could see several different combinations from the set (though they will all be on the plummy side!).

Sydney Grace Laughter Matte Shadow

Sydney Grace Laughter Matte Shadow

Laughter

Laughter is a lighter, almost peachy pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease. The consistency was soft, smooth, and silky without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.06 oz. – $83.33 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.

 

Sydney Grace Treasure All Matte Shadow

Sydney Grace Treasure All Matte Shadow

Treasure All

Treasure All is a muted, rosy brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the texture was soft, silky, and smooth without being too soft that it became prone to powderiness. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Sydney Grace Trust Matte Shadow

Sydney Grace Trust Matte Shadow

Trust

Trust is a medium plum with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There were fine, gold micro-shimmers throughout, which seemed to help keep the shade blendable but didn’t impact the finish as it looked matte in practice. It had rich pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was silky and finely-milled without being powdery. It lasted well on my eye for eight hours before showing signs of wear.

Sydney Grace Keep Smiling Matte Shadow

Keep Smiling

Keep Smiling is a medium-dark, plummy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it applied well to bare skin without sheering out too readily and wasn’t prone to fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Sydney Grace Aim High Pressed Pigment Shadow

Sydney Grace Aim High Pressed Pigment Shadow

Aim High

Aim High is a pale pink with strong,w arm undertones and a pearly sheen–it had a strong sheen but wasn’t quite metallic. The shimmer in this shade was extremely finely-milled, and I wish we saw more shades in this finish (in general). The texture was like silk; smooth, lightly creamy, and flattering on the lid as it “melted” onto my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me creasing faintly.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.06 oz. – $100.00 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).

Role Model

Role Model is a bright, medium plum with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had excellent color payoff in a single pass, which applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. It had a smooth, firmer consistency that needed a slightly firmer hand to pick up evenly with a brush. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed slight fading.
