TropiColor

Sydney Grace TropiColor 18-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.95 oz.) is a new and upcoming palette that releases for purchase on September 1st. It is the largest Sydney Grace palette that I can recall with a whopping 18 shades! It is magnetized, so the shades can be removed or rearranged as desired.

There were 10 matte shades and eight shimmery shades, which largely performed consistently with the brand’s eyeshadow formulas–pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. I found one matte shade, Negril, to be firmer/stiffer and the only one that felt like a real departure from the brand’s typical quality.

Ingredients

Coconut

Coconut is a light, yellowish beige with a semi-matte finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, slightly firmer in feel
  • Blendable, easy to apply, not prone to sheering out
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

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).

Wolmers

Wolmers is a light-medium blue with cool undertones and a matte finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, not too powdery nor too firmly-pressed
  • Blendable, easy to apply, not prone to sheering out
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

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.

Negril

Negril is a darker, navy blue with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. This was the “worst” shade in the palette, as it was firmer/stiffer and harder to build up product evenly.

  • Medium, somewhat buildable coverage
  • Firmer, stiffer in the pan, harder to pick up evenly
  • Could have blended out better
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

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).
