Sydney Grace Unstoppable Love (Deep) is a moderately cool-toned, dark plum with a matte finish. It is an eyeshadow that is permanent in these palettes: Radiant Reflection (Deep), and Temptalia Collection.
Unstoppable Love (Deep) is a deep eggplant with subtle, warm undertones and matte finish. The consistency is slightly more loosely-pressed, so there was light powderiness in the pan when picked up, but it has enough substance to have minimal to no fallout during application but retains its depth (which was what made this shade harder to get right -- to be dark but still have brightness).
Inspiration: I wanted to get something as purple-leaning as I could without using color additives that aren't approved (by the FDA) for use on the eye area, and this was the result. It reads as a true eggplant on me and can appear a bit cooler, warmer, or muted depending on skin tone and undertone. I felt like this type of hue helped to marry many of the more vibrant shimmer shades.
Behind the Name: "Love is unstoppable" is a motto between my husband and I--it is engraved on his wedding ring.
Originally, this was the shade I was trying to push toward a brighter, violet purple kind of hue (with a matte finish) but couldn't get there while using FDA-approved color additives, which was very much as I suspected, so my backup was more of a plum/eggplant color--as rich and deep as we could get it. The first round of color samples included two loose versions, though neither was quite what I was after.
The third, hand-pressed version wasn't as deep as I wanted (and went lighter than the prior version). The fourth, machine-pressed version went lighter, even though the undertone was more where I wanted it. That being said, I felt like it would work well for the Light version of this shade.
The fifth version was purpler and more what I had in mind, and the texture was quite lovely (better than it had been previously), so it was approved in late April 2021.
