Hello beautiful creatures! Today is my 43rd birthday and I’m sharing the Sydney Grace Co Radiant Reflection Palette with you. This palette was made by Sydney Grace Co in collaboration with Christine from Temptalia. You can see swatches of the other two palettes: the On the Horizon Palette and the Quintessence Palette.
Where to Buy
The Sydney Grace Co x Temptalia collaboration palettes are launching this June 18, 2021 at 9 am PT / 12 pm ET on www.sydneygraceco.com. The Temptalia palettes will be $40 individually or $100 for the set of 3. Sydney Grace Co x Temptalia palettes are not limited edition. Sydney Grace is also launching an eyeshadow called Dear Reader, which I will be purchasing as soon as it goes live.
About the Palette
Take a moment to reflect on the faceted nature of each of us as individuals and what lies beneath the surface to discover a rainbow of luxurious jewel-tones just waiting to be explored.

My favorites from the Temptalia x Sydney Grace Co Radiant Reflection palette are Temptalia, Sumptuous Serendipity, Phosphenes, Forget-Her-Not, Glossover, and Jealousy’s Descent.
Temptalia, Unstoppable Love and Sumptuous Serendipity are a gorgeous pink trio to use together. Forget-Her-Not is a stunning purple. I really love all the purples, greens and blues Temptalia created for this collection.
Glossover will look amazing when used at the center of a halo eye. I love eyeshadows that have that lit-from-within otherworldly glow.
Out of all 3 of the Temptalia x Sydney Grace Co palettes, the Quintessence palette is my favorite. If I had to choose just one, that’s what I would pick. I do think the Radiant Reflection palette is a pretty, jewel-toned take on the rainbow, while the On the Horizon palette is a nice twist on grungey neutrals. Which do you like best?
