Sydney Grace x Temptalia Radiant Reflection Palette

The idea of this palette was to create one thing wealthy in jewel-tones and nearly rainbow-like, however I didn’t need it to be a neon rainbow or use typical rainbow hues we’ve seen in previous palettes. I wished extra depth and curiosity, so plenty of the richness comes from the extra shimmery shades, whereas the depth comes from barely muted mattes, that are extra to floor the palette than add to the richness.

This was the toughest colour story to create and develop as a result of there are such a lot of completely different colours and undertones, so it was more durable to unify them in a manner that made sense. It’s nonetheless a palette designed extra as a complementary one than standalone, although it may be used by itself however shall be greatest paired with a few of your favourite neutrals and transition hues.

I knew from the start that I’d be pushing the chances as I had berry-purple and violet purple mattes that doubtless would require changes over time to make use of them with FDA-approved colour components solely.

After I described the colours I wished for every palette, I supplied a written description together with hyperlinks to swatches of comparable shades that had been nearer (both in colour or within the “vibe”) and referenced Sydney Grace’s present line if there was something close by (like “A deeper, darker model of A with a cooler undertone and extra of a metallic shine with much less sparkle”), which I figured would give them a superb reference level to start out from visually.

Be aware: Palettes are being despatched to official swatchers this week, however as I used to be first to obtain palettes (duh), I figured I’d recruit my husband’s and my sister’s arms for swatching, so I’ve these prepared now. We could have very mild, mild/light-medium, medium, medium-dark, and darkish pores and skin tones represented earlier than launch.

Unstoppable Love (Deep)

Unstoppable Love (Deep) is a deep eggplant with refined, heat undertones and matte end. The consistency is barely extra loosely-pressed, so there was mild powderiness within the pan when picked up, nevertheless it has sufficient substance to have minimal to no fallout throughout software however retains its depth (which was what made this shade more durable to get proper — to be darkish however nonetheless have brightness).

Inspiration: I wished to get one thing as purple-leaning as I may with out utilizing colour components that aren’t authorised (by the FDA) to be used on the attention space, and this was the consequence. It reads as a real eggplant on me and may seem a bit cooler, hotter, or muted relying on pores and skin tone and undertone. I felt like one of these hue helped to marry most of the extra vibrant shimmer shades.

Behind the Title: “Love is unstoppable” is a motto between my husband and I–it’s engraved on his wedding ceremony ring.

Growth

Initially, this was the shade I used to be making an attempt to push towards a brighter, violet purple type of hue (with a matte end) however couldn’t get there whereas utilizing FDA-approved colour components, which was very a lot as I suspected, so my backup was extra of a plum/eggplant colour–as wealthy and deep as we may get it. The primary spherical of colour samples included two free variations, although neither was fairly what I used to be after.

The third, hand-pressed model wasn’t as deep as I wished (and went lighter than the prior model). The fourth, machine-pressed model went lighter, though the undertone was extra the place I wished it.  That being stated, I felt like it might work effectively for the Gentle model of this shade.

The fifth model was purpler and extra what I had in thoughts, and the feel was fairly beautiful (higher than it had been beforehand), so it was authorised in late April 2021.

Growth

As a result of Radiant Reflection is extra of a colourful palette, it wasn’t designed to wish as many anchoring/impartial matte type of shades. It’s additionally onerous to search out blendable plummy tones, so I used certainly one of iterations from engaged on the Deep model for right here.

Operose

Operose is a medium-dark purple with heat undertones and pearl end. It has a very clean consistency, which helps it look nearly “melted” on pores and skin whereas being pretty reflective. It’s not fairly as metallic as many of the metallic shades I’ve within the palettes total.

This was additionally a shade that underwent plenty of iterations over time, partially as a result of an ingredient turned unavailable after it was initially to my liking!  The colour represents rubies and the brilliance as mild, which is commonly hotter, shines by.

Behind the Title: I really like the “rose” within the phrase to tie to a red-hued shade, however its origins are from the Latin operosus, which implies industrious and painstaking–and I really feel like that describes what I’ve put into the weblog over time.

Growth

It was initially described as a “vivid berry-red” and ideally, it might have been matte, however I hoped for at the least getting there with a low satin-like sheen.  I cherished the primary free colour pattern I acquired however ended up utilizing the colour in Quintessence as an alternative, choosing a hotter purple right here. I did this in mid-2020 when the primary pressed model of the shades had been made.

The third, machine-pressed model wasn’t darkish or wealthy sufficient for my desire, and the feel was a bit of too slippery.  The fourth model was deeper and richer, whereas nonetheless being heat and red-based, with the suitable texture and was authorised for manufacturing mid-March 2021.

Temptalia

Temptalia is a medium, strawberry milk pink with muted, heat undertones and high-shine, metallic end. There’s a contact of golden sheen to it, which provides it extra heat in motion. The feel has a moderately-firm really feel to it, which ensures minimal to no fallout however offers it nice shine and shimmer.

Inspiration: Initially, this shade was conceptualized as a brighter magenta, however after a number of makes an attempt, it was at all times too near present Sydney Grace (both As soon as in a Lifetime or Magic Act). I made a decision to take it into a distinct route–one thing lighter and brighter–and thought of rose quartz, pink sapphires, and pink diamonds.

We tried one thing with plenty of sparkle to it, however there was extra fallout than best, and I felt prefer it was vulnerable to making use of inconsistently so after just a few completely different tries to steadiness binder, sparkle, and firmness of strain… one other route: higher-shine, much less sparkle, refined pearl. This colour was truly one thing I used to be initially considering of for Quintessence however moved away from!

This was the final shade finalized, and in a manner, it was crowd-sourced, as a result of I shared the 4 choices supplied by Sydney Grace the place I knew certainly one of them could be what I’d approve. This ended up being shade #four as I shared on Instagram. (Shade #three turned Expensive Reader!)

Behind the Title: Who may presumably clarify how I arrived at this identify? 😂

Growth

I wished a “vivid, pink-toned purple” in both a matte or shimmer end. The primary free colour pattern I acquired was precisely what I wished, however then the second, hand-pressed pan went very violet (which was actually fairly however not my imaginative and prescient!). The third, machine-pressed pan was nearer to the unique colour pattern however was so near As soon as in a Lifetime.

On the fourth try, it nonetheless remained far too much like As soon as in a Lifetime, so I went in a distinct route: extra of a lavender with heavier sparkle. Sadly, that introduction of sparkle made it onerous to steadiness binder, fallout, and even software; this encompassed the fifth and sixth variations. The seventh model was nonetheless too chunky/onerous to use, so I made a decision to go for a extra high-shine end and lose the glint.

This was the final shade to be authorised, so for the final set of colour samples, Sydney Grace created 4 variations of this shade. The primary two had been very related, whereas the third was cooler-toned and extra lavender whereas the fourth was hotter, nearly like strawberry milk. I shared a few of this on Instagram, and sharing truly made this more difficult to resolve between.

There was super assist for the third model, however in the end, I felt the fourth model was the correct mix of depth and undertone to work with the colour story total. I requested if Sydney Grace would take into account making the third model a single, they usually stated sure; it’ll be named Expensive Reader in honor of Temptalia readers’ suggestions.

Neglect-Her-Not

Neglect-Her-Not is a deep violet with cool undertones and pearl sheen. The end is subtler and extra of a satiny-sheen than intense metallic, which makes this shade simpler to make use of within the crease and nonetheless have the ability to get depth out of it, and it doesn’t mix out to pink/purple in any respect. There simply aren’t sufficient cool-toned purples within the make-up world!

Inspiration: What are jewel-tones with no vivid violet?

Our Starry Night time

Our Starry Night time is a vivid, sapphire blue base with flecks of gold sparkle over metallic end. That is probably the most sparkly shade and most vulnerable to fallout from all of the 42 shades developed, nevertheless it was fine-tuning that steadiness between having seen, gold micro-sparkle coming by and being each embedded however nonetheless seen on high and getting completely misplaced and overwhelmed by the blue base.

It might be tempting to make use of it damp, however I truly assume this shade has probably the most glow and luminance when utilized dry! (It may be utilized with a moist brush however will get a bit of extra metallic.) The press is barely firmer to maintain it from being too powdery.

Inspiration: I wished one thing to have extra of an iridescent sheen that wasn’t metallic or sparkly however smoother. This was at all times a part of my colour story for this palette, nevertheless it was surprisingly difficult to explain to Sydney Grace to realize the top consequence that we did! I additionally discovered that it took just a few revisions to get the feel to be a clean sheen with out being too thick.

Behind the Title: It’s a nod to the score system used on Temptalia, The Glossover, which I felt match with how glowing the sheen was on this–loads like how pearl seems to be in a lipgloss.

Growth

I wished this to have a “high-shine, clean/reflective blue base with blue-violet shift.” The preliminary model had an important end however I wished the general colour to be lighter to present extra of a halo/brightening impact. The second model was nonetheless on the darker aspect, whereas the third, hand-pressed model was nearer however felt too thick/dense in texture. Whereas the fourth model was higher, it was nonetheless too thick and didn’t apply evenly.

It was the fifth model the place the feel was the place it wanted to be–clean, satiny, and never too thick–and was authorised for full manufacturing in early March 2021.

Beautiful Opulence

Beautiful Opulence is an intense, molten gold with metallic end. The world most likely didn’t want yet one more gold eyeshadow, however the colour story felt incomplete with out it. It provides a lot distinction in opposition to a number of the cooler blues and greens whereas coordinating effectively with the hotter purple and plum type of hues. It has a light-to-medium press to it, so it’s just about straightforward to make use of nevertheless one may attain for it, and we stored it from being too firmly-pressed to make sure a number of the micro-sparkle got here by.

Inspiration: I’ve at all times cherished a molten gold, and it’s excellent for a jewel-toned palette. This colour was a part of my unique idea, and I wished it to be a deeper gold with heat and plenty of shine and twinkle. The more difficult half was differentiating it from different Sydney Grace golds, of which there are a good few!, however I feel we managed to seize that darker, richer base whereas nonetheless holding it vivid in doing so.

Behind the Title: My type of phrase salad. I’ve at all times cherished phrases like opulent/opulence, and the palette is all about extravagance, so it’s not simply opulence in color-form however beautiful opulence!

Growth

I described this because the “richest, honeyed gold.” The preliminary spherical included one free model of this shade, which was complete perfection! The second, hand-pressed model was darker and extra orange-based with much less sparkle, so it needed to be tweaked to get again to the free model in colour/end.

The third model had the suitable end and texture, however the colour wanted to be lighter and fewer brown/orange however was additionally too near The Dream.  The fourth model managed to straddle a slender area between the model’s metallic gold shades that was completely different whereas nonetheless having all the glint and shine I hoped for!

Elegant Reverie

Elegant Reverie is a medium-dark teal with cool undertones and matte end. The feel is especially delicate and silky, so there’s a little powderiness current within the pan and potential for minor fallout if picked up extra closely. Firmer presses resulted in sheerer protection and the colour getting extra muted/washed out, significantly on darkish pores and skin tones.

Inspiration: As we expanded the palette from 10 to 12 shades, I felt like a matte, blue-teal would assist to tie a number of the shades collectively whereas offering an in-between shade from blue to inexperienced.

Behind the Title: We used to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium typically (and Monterey was the primary trip hubby and I took when relationship), and after we’d go exterior and have a look at the ocean, I thought of how trying on the vastness made me really feel. I wished to attach that feeling with the sentiment behind self-reflection as effectively.

Growth

Initially, I had a lighter, brighter shimmering teal within the palette however eliminated it in favor of including a matte teal as an alternative, so after the primary two variations, it went in one other route. The third and fourth variations had been within the ballpark, however I wished extra saturation. The fifth, hand-pressed model was too darkish, not saturated sufficient, and the feel was too agency for my desire. The sixth model was nearer in colour however too firmly pressed, whereas the seventh model had the suitable degree of richness and was authorised late March 2021.

The shimmer eyeshadows are extra constant in pigmentation with the vast majority of shades having opaque colour protection. The extra metallic/sparkly the shade is, the creamier and extra emollient the eyeshadow felt within the pan, which regularly yielded actually clean software and good adherence to the lid, although just a few labored higher with a fingertip or a dampened brush for true-to-pan colour or to get a more true end/sheen.

Most shades, nevertheless, labored effectively with brushes, and I did not have hassle making use of or mixing out many of the shimmer shades. The extra satin to pearl like finishes are likely to really feel a bit of thinner however mix out effectively. These shades wore between eight and 9 hours on me with a number of the extra foiled-like shades creasing noticeably on the finish (and the much less foiled-like ones fading).
