The Sydney Grace x Temptalia Collection launches tomorrow, June 18th, at 9AM PDT. I wanted to share swatches this morning now that I have swatches on darker skin available (I’m waiting on two more sets of swatches–lightest and medium; I will update this post as soon as those arrive).
The Deep versions of the palettes were designed specifically with darker skin tones in mind, while the Light versions of the palettes were designed with lighter skin tones in mind, but the intent was to keep look and feel of each color story intact, so that’s why two key shades were altered but not every shade. (You can get a more in-depth look at and information on the Light vs. Deep versions here.)
There is a circular image of Mellan at the base of the swatch for shades that differ between the Light and Deep versions. He hopes to help make it clearer for those trying to decide between versions!
Swatches on Deep Skin
These swatches are done by Day (who runs Legally Black Beauty as a blog and on Instagram), who wears Fenty 430 (“deep skin with warm golden undertones”).
Swatches on Medium Deep Skin
These swatches are on my sister, who wears Fenty 345 (“tan skin with warm olive undertones”).
Swatches on Light Skin
These swatches are on me (!), and I wear Fenty 180 (“light skin with warm undertones”).
Swatches on Very Light Skin
These swatches are on my husband, who is the equivalent of Fenty 110 (“very fair skin with cool pink undertones”).
