Sydney Grace October 2022 Monthly Eyeshadow Bundle

October 2022

Sydney Grace October 2022 Monthly Eyeshadow Bundle ( for oz.) is a new, limited edition set of five new shades that includes three mattes and two shimmers. As expected, they performed beautifully: pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, and they were consistent with the brand’s formula. I think this is one of their better bundles as far as color stories go, too!

Crunching Leaves

Crunching Leaves is a light orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, finely-milled but not too powdery
  • Applied evenly and blended out well
  • Long-wearing (8.5 hours)

  • Dior Copper #3 (PiP, ).

  • LORAC Morocco (PiP, ).
  • BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition #1 (LE, ).

Formula Overview

$5.25/0.06 oz. – $87.50 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

$6.25/0.06 oz. – $104.17 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).
