Sydney Grace x Glitzy Frizy Blessed Palette debuted earlier this week and is available in a Light version and a Deep version. Five of the matte shades are different between the two versions.
Given the aggressive legislation being pushed in the US that targets and harms the LGBTQIA+ community and it being Pride month, and without a long history of loud and proud support of LGBTQIA+, several readers expressed concerns over this release’s use of religious themes and language. I know some of the readers who were the most supportive of my collaboration with the brand are no longer comfortable purchasing from the brand.
I hope that the religious-leanings of the palette and the collaborator’s note that was included in some of the press packages (I did not receive a note, but I confirmed that others did) is something that is limited to this collaboration. I can appreciate someone’s religion being a major part of their life and their identity, and thus wanting to include it in their collaboration, but I also can understand that others have been alienated and traumatized by religion, particularly forms of Christianity. It is understandable that it’s not something they’d want mixed in with makeup, which is often a place of joy and escapism, especially when the beauty community (in general) has been working towards greater inclusivity.
