Sydney Grace Heart-dog is a moderately warm-toned, light pewter with a metallic finish. It is an eyeshadow that is permanent in these palettes: On the Horizon (Light), On the Horizon (Deep), and Temptalia Collection.
Heart-dog is a pale, golden pewter with high-shine, metallic finish. Sometimes, it looks more cooler-toned, depending on what it is paired with. It's ultra-reflective and great for brightening the inner tearduct, used as a wash of shine all over the lid, or on the center of the lid for a halo effect. The texture is particularly smooth, moderately firm in press, and works well with dry/wet brushes as well as fingertips.
Inspiration: I wanted a bright, highly-reflective platinum-pewter kind of hue; not quite gold/aged pewter but warmer than true platinum. I envisioned the color adding brightness to the inner eye duct, under eyeliner, or as a halo effect. It could also be used all-over as a wash.
Behind the Name: The term "heart-dog" is about a unique relationship between you and a dog that just bonds to you in a special way that's unforgettable. There was no doubt that the collaboration would incorporate Magellan throughout, and they're all in tribute now (which is bittersweet as I have so many video clips from the journey where he was in the background); he was the first dog I really connected to, and the way I loved him was irrational, unconditional, and fervently. I miss him so, so, so much.
I originally described as a "high-shine, very smooth/reflective platinum blonde." The first loose color sample I received was pretty much dead-on in finish and I wanted to go a touch lighter. The second loose color sample was exactly what I had envisioned. The third version was hand-pressed but felt too firm, while the fourth version, which was machine-pressed was the right balance and approved for production in early January 2021.
