Sydney Grace Sublime Reverie is a moderately cool-toned, medium-dark teal with a matte finish. It is an eyeshadow that is permanent in these palettes: Radiant Reflection (Light), Radiant Reflection (Deep), and Temptalia Collection.
Sublime Reverie is a medium-dark teal with cool undertones and matte finish. The texture is particularly soft and silky, so there is a little powderiness present in the pan and potential for minor fallout if picked up more heavily. Firmer presses resulted in sheerer coverage and the color getting more muted/washed out, particularly on dark skin tones.
Inspiration: As we expanded the palette from 10 to 12 shades, I felt like a matte, blue-teal would help to tie some of the shades together while providing an in-between shade from blue to green.
Behind the Name: We used to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium often (and Monterey was the first vacation hubby and I took when dating), and when we'd go outside and look at the ocean, I thought about how looking at the vastness made me feel. I wanted to connect that feeling with the sentiment behind self-reflection as well.
Originally, I had a lighter, brighter shimmering teal in the palette but removed it in favor of adding a matte teal instead, so after the first two versions, it went in another direction. The third and fourth versions were in the ballpark, but I wanted more saturation. The fifth, hand-pressed version was too dark, not saturated enough, and the texture was too firm for my preference. The sixth version was closer in color but too firmly pressed, while the seventh version had the right level of richness and was approved late March 2021.
