Sydney Grace Forget-Her-Not is a very cool-toned, dark purple with a pearl finish. It is an eyeshadow that is permanent in these palettes: Radiant Reflection (Light), Radiant Reflection (Deep), and Temptalia Collection.
Forget-Her-Not is a deep violet with cool undertones and pearl sheen. The finish is subtler and more of a satiny-sheen than intense metallic, which makes this shade easier to use in the crease and still be able to get depth out of it, and it doesn't blend out to pink/red at all. There just aren't enough cool-toned purples in the makeup world!
Inspiration: What are jewel-tones without a vivid violet? It felt necessary to dream up cooler, more blue-based purple options, and I wanted real depth but less shine so that it could be used in place of a matte (for those who aren't 100% committed to true matte) but has all the blendability of a shimmer.
Behind the Name: It is a nod to my mother-in-law, who has always loved flowers and often knows the names of them (she also loves purple!), so it is a play on forget-me-not flowers.
It was originally described as a "satin purple." The first loose color sample was very similar, just bluer-based than I had originally envisioned, but I actually preferred it that way. The second, hand-pressed version needed to be softer and more yielding. The third, machine-pressed version was the right balance of texture, pigmentation, and blendability and was approved in January 2021.
