Red (Light)

Sydney Grace Red (Light) Mystery Bag (2022) ($30.00) includes three eyeshadows, one powder highlighter, one cream eyeshadow, one lipgloss, one face brush, and a metallic red makeup bag. The products performed consistently with Sydney Grace’s formulas in the past, so if you’ve enjoyed those, I imagine you’ll find the products to your liking. This is the Light version of the bag; the highlighter and the lightest eyeshadow are exclusive to the Light version and are different in the Deep version.

As far as the brush goes, the synthetic bristles are very soft, and the brush had good weight and density, but I haven’t used any of the Sydney Grace brushes long enough to have full reviews on them yet! On a personal note, the length of the brush head is a bit long for my personal tastes, and I think an eye brush would have been more suitable based on the contents of the bag.
