Sydney Grace Taupe (Deep) Mystery Bag Review & Swatches (2021)


Taupe (Deep) (2021)

Sydney Grace Taupe (Deep) (2021) Mystery Bag (2021) ($30.00) includes five new eyeshadows and a new highlighter, which are intended to remain the same across all Taupe (Deep) mystery bags, while two to three other products are also included that can vary (my bag contained a cream shadow and a loose glitter, which are both from the permanent range).

The inclusion of two very warm-toned, more orange/copper-bases shades–one eyeshadow and one highlighter–didn’t seem to pair well with the other shades, and they definitely weren’t the kind of hues I’d expect for a ‘taupe’ categorized bag–I know I saw some people voice their disappointment for the outcomes of the taupe bags due to this.

Nevertheless, if the colors are up your alley, regardless of expectations, the products performed well across the board and were consistent with the brand’s past releases in the respective formulas.

The following shades are the same in both the Light and Deep versions of the Taupe mystery bag: Opulence, Eiffel Tower, and Pecan Pie.

Versailles

Versailles is a light copper with strong, warm gold shimmer and a metallic finish but had a slightly warmer, more orange base. The texture was more loosely-pressed in the pan, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand when picking up product and then pressing it onto skin to avoid light fallout. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

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).

Opulence

Opulence is a medium-dark taupe with subtle, warm brown undertones and a cooler, almost silvery metallic sheen. The texture was moderately dense, slightly cream-like but not too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Hazelnut

Hazelnut is a medium, taupe-brown with muted, warm olive undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out with little effort. The texture was soft, smooth, and a touch powdery in the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout or sheering out too readily on the lid. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower is a medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was a touch firmer than the usual matte shade by the brand, but I had no trouble picking up product or diffusing it as it was still smooth and finely-milled. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie is a deep taupe-brown with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was slightly thinner and more firmly-pressed into the pan, but it picked up well with a brush and blended out with ease. In practice, it seemed to have more semi-opaque, buildable coverage. This shade showed signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear.

Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach is a rich, medium-dark copper with strong, warm golden shimmer and a metallic finish. The highlighter had rich pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and had a very strong, intense shine that bordered on emphasizing my skin’s natural texture when worn at higher coverage. The powder was smooth, lightly creamy, and moderately dense to the point where it buffed well and could have a softer finish when blended out further. It wore nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$9.00/0.25 oz. – $36.00 Per Ounce

The highlighters are supposed to be “smooth and pigmented” that “blend like a dream” and “last all day long.” The majority of the shades in the range are incredibly pigmented with a creaminess to the texture that makes them a cinch to apply and blend out on my skin.

I was most impressed by how soft, almost cream-like the powders were, yet they weren’t too loosely-pressed nor were they prone to powderiness. Some of the finishes are very metallic or frosted, so when worn at semi-opaque or higher coverage levels, they can emphasize my skin’s natural texture slightly. They have worn between eight and nine hours on me.

Jeanette

Jeanette is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, non-sticky consistency that spread evenly across my lips and was comfortable to wear. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.15 oz. – $66.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a “cross between a lipgloss and a lipstick” that is “moisturizing.” The brand recommends using a lip liner with darker colors. It had the coverage of a lipstick with more of the feel and application of a lipgloss in my experience.

The majority of the shades have good opacity and are near-to or full coverage, which go on with minimal to no streaking but a few shades settled into my deeper lip lines more noticeably. The texture was more light-medium in thickness with moderate tackiness, and while not heavy, it was a heavier gloss than most on the market currently. It has a very smooth feel as it goes on, and it was comfortable to wear, hydration, and lasted longer than the average gloss–five to six hours.
