Sydney Grace Interstellar is a moderately cool-toned, dark teal with a matte finish. It is an eyeshadow that is permanent in these palettes: Quintessence (Light), Quintessence (Deep), and Temptalia Collection.
Interstellar is a deep blue-teal with matte finish. It has a light-to-medium press in firmness; there's a little powderiness in the pan, but it shouldn't lose its coverage when applied and blended out. There may be a touch of fallout if over-applied, though, so you may want to use a lighter hand and build up when first working with it to get a lay of the land.
Inspiration: When it came to creating matte shades, I wanted to try and create more muted takes that had depth and inkiness rather than brightness. I wanted a darker, bluish-teal to play off of shades like Aurora, Borealis, Galactic Muse, and Sirius Starlight.
Behind the Name: The definition of interstellar is the space between stars, which I felt worked for a darker shade that was also matte.
I originally described it as a "deep, not-quite-blackened blue-leaning teal" with a matte finish. The first version, a loose color sample, needed to be brighter/richer--I wanted more of the color to come through so it didn't appear as dark/muted on the eye.
The second version, which was hand-pressed, lacked the saturation I wanted because in lower light, it looked near-black, and I wanted the texture to be creamier, silkier without getting to be too powdery. The third version, which was machine-pressed, was still not as rich as I would have liked, and I wanted it to pull a little greener with less firm of a press overall. The fourth version was perfect!
