Mountain Trail

Sydney Grace Mountain Trail 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($33.00 for 0.54 oz.) was originally released as a bundle of single pan eyeshadows, and it’s back in palette-form! I found that eight of the nine shades were as good or slightly improved, while one shade (Escape) seemed to have more shimmer and less of an intense, deeper base color (though performance-wise, it was still decent). This has always been one of my favorite bundles from Sydney Grace, so I’m so glad to see it back.

Ingredients

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.

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).

Escape

Escape has more of a medium-dark, almost sage green base, with lighter, contrasting greenish-gold shimmer throughout. The version in the palette seemed lighter and more shimmer-heavy with less of an intense, deep green base, which did have the effect of also making it seem a bit sheerer.

  • Semi-paque coverage
