Sydney Grace x Temptalia Collection Swatches

The Sydney Grace x Temptalia Collection launches tomorrow, June 18th, at 9AM PDT. I wanted to share swatches this morning now that I have swatches on darker skin available (I’m waiting on two more sets of swatches–lightest and medium; I will update this post as soon as those arrive). The Deep versions of the palettes were designed specifically with darker skin tones in mind, while the Light versions of the palettes were designed with lighter skin tones in mind, but th...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia Radiant Reflection | The Arrangement + Combinations

The Radiant Reflection palette features three matte shades and nine shimmers. One shimmer–Forget-Her-Not–has a lower level of pearl and sheen, could be used as a “matte” for depth for those who don’t mind a lil’ bit of sheen in the crease (couldn’t achieve a matte purple in this depth, vividness, and tone without using non-FDA color additives!). All three palettes are arranged similarly so that they can be visualized the same way, but hopefully, these images help breakdown the color combinations...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia On the Horizon | The Arrangement + Combinations

The On the Horizon palette features four matte shades and eight shimmers. One shimmer–Calming Presence–has a lower level of pearl and sheen, could be used as a “matte” for depth for those who don’t mind a lil’ bit of sheen in the crease. All three palettes are arranged similarly so that they can be visualized the same way, but hopefully, these images help breakdown the color combinations possible. Note: October Odyssey and Infinite Echoes are the matte eyeshadows that have a Light and Deep ver...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia: Light vs. Deep Versions + Visualizing & Comparing All the Shades

One of the questions I’ve been asked the most is whether someone should get the Light or Deep version of a palette, so I thought I’d discuss the differences and hopefully provide some insight/ask the right questions to help you dial in whether the light or deep version is more suitable for you, assuming you’re looking to purchase one. As always, if none of the palettes would be something you wear, please do not buy to “support” me. Engaging with the content I post, re...

Sydney Grace x Temptalia Quintessence | The Arrangement + Combinations

The Quintessence palette features four matte shades and eight shimmers. One shimmer–Orion Nebula–has a lower level of pearl and sheen, so it is more like a satin-to-pearl finish and could be used as a matte for those who don’t mind a lil’ bit of sheen in the crease. All three palettes are arranged similarly so that they can be visualized the same way, but hopefully, these images help breakdown the color combinations possible. Note: Reaching Zenith and Parallax are the matte eyeshadows that hav...

Best of Sydney Grace Lip Creams

Let’s see how well the Sydney Grace Lip Creams ($10.00) performed! It’s a lipstick-lipgloss hybrid with more of the higher coverage of a lipstick and the shiny look of a gloss. Most shades were quite pigmented, comfortable to wear, and were long-wearing, though some sat better on my lips than others! [Author: Christine]
