Sydney Grace Where the Wild Things Grow (Light) Palette Review & Swatches

Where the Wild Things Grow (Light)

Sydney Grace Where the Wild Things Grow (Light) 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a new, 9-palette that just launched this past month. All of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and easy to use. They performed consistently with Sydney Grace’s eyeshadow formula. This is the light version, where three versions are exclusive to this palette (Queen’s Anne Lace, Dandelion, and Poppy).

Ingredients

Queen Anne’s Lace (Light)

Queen Anne’s Lace (Light) is a light rosy beige with subtle warm undertones and a metallic finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, moderately-dense but not stiff
  • Picked up evenly with dry brush, applied evenly, blendable
  • Long-wearing (8.5 hours)

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).

Dandelion (Light)

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.
