Biscotti

Sydney Grace Biscotti Pressed Pigment Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light-medium beige with subtle, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a moderately-dense, almost cream-like consistency that almost “melted” when applied to bare skin. It wore nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.

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).

Safari

The eyeshadow had full color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and diffused with ease along the edges without losing its intensity or shine. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and denser without being too thick. It stayed on well for nine hours before showing signs of wear.
