Danny's Dream

Sydney Grace Danny’s Dream 9-Pan Bundle ($33.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a set of nine eyeshadow singles in various shades of green–three are shimmers, six are mattes–that is only available as a set. It is supposed to be restocked on May 12th. All nine shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing with two shades–Kiwifruit and Key Lime–being slightly less pigmented and not as finely-milled but very workable in practice (buildable, still blendable).

Tangy Citrus

Tangy Citrus is a bright, pale yellow with subtle, warm undertones and an intense, metallic sheen. It was almost a “cool” yellow against my skin tone. The texture was smooth to the touch, more firmly-pressed compared to most of the brand’s shimmers, but still easy to pick up with a brush. It had opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color that blended out easily along the edges. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on my skin before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.06 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

The shimmer eyeshadows are more consistent in pigmentation with the majority of shades having opaque color coverage. The more metallic/sparkly the shade is, the creamier and more emollient the eyeshadow felt in the pan, which often yielded really smooth application and good adherence to the lid, though a few worked better with a fingertip or a dampened brush for true-to-pan color or to get a truer finish/sheen. Most shades, however, worked well with brushes, and I didn't have trouble applying or blending out most of the shimmer shades. The more satin to pearl like finishes tend to feel a little thinner but blend out well. These shades wore between eight and nine hours on me with some of the more foiled-like shades creasing noticeably at the end (and the less foiled-like ones fading).

Calmeria

Calmeria is a bright, light lime green with warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish (nearly imperceptible shimmer was strewn throughout it). The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the texture was smooth and more substantial, so it actually kept its intensity when applied to bare skin but was still blendable. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.06 oz. - $83.33 Per Ounce

The matte eyeshadows tend to be pigmented (typically semi-opaque or opaque, often buildable if they aren't opaque) with a soft, more velvety texture that has slight slip but isn't so thick that it gets difficult to use, applies unevenly, or has a lot of fallout. I've found that most of the matte eyeshadows apply and blend out without much effort but a few may take a bit more effort to diffuse along the edges. The matte formula tends to wear between eight and eight and a half hours on me.

Green Anjou

Green Anjou is a bright chartreuse with strong, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were very fine shimmers that I could barely see in the shadow that seemed to help keep it blendable but didn’t impact the finish (as it appeared matte on my skin). The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. It wore well for eight hours before it started to fade a bit.

Green Mango

Green Mango is a light-medium green with moderate, warm undertones and slightly cooler, pale green shimmer. It seemed to have a slightly silvery sheen to it when applied to my skin. The texture was more softly pressed, so it was easy to pick up but could have a bit of fallout if I wasn’t careful to tap off any excess (or press/pat it onto my lid). It had full color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out without issues. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.

Honeydew

Honeydew is a light-medium green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, smooth, and velvety with enough substance to play well with bare skin. The pigmentation was opaque and applied evenly to my lid without losing its intensity when blended along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours before it started to fade a bit on me.

Granny Smith

Granny Smith is a rich, grass green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was soft without being powdery and had enough substance to it that it adhered well to bare skin without sheering out too readily. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Sweetsop

Sweetsop is a medium-dark green with subtle, warm undertones and warmer green and emerald green shimmer/sparkle. The texture was lightly creamy but a bit more loosely pressed, though it had great adhesion to bare skin and had a very shiny finish (without having to use it wet). The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, which lasted well for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly on me.

Kiwifruit is a medium-dark, olive green with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The eyeshadow had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily.

Key Lime

Key Lime is a medium-dark green with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to opaque pigmentation with two layers. The texture was slightly drier and thinner, but I didn’t find it to be difficult to apply or blend out in practice. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Even though I only planned on getting two palettes this year, this one is making it hard for me to stick to my resolution. You all know I love green shadows and I have’t tried anything from SG brand so this would be a great place to start. I am going to have to do some serious thinking about it before restock. Thank you for the review and for the notice of date for restock, Christine. I feel my resistance crumbling….

I’m pretty sure I speak for many of us when I say that seeing such a well done green eyeshadow palette is highly appreciated!
So many of us have been watching and waiting for greens, blues, and just before that, purples being done as the central shade in palettes. It would seem that brands have heard us loud and clear!
As for me, I have Huda Emerald, am definitely getting CR Jungle Safari and the one by CP. This one is beautiful and very tempting, too! It is currently in a tie with CP’s Lucky palette 💚

Yup, pretty sure I need this! What a great collection and I don’t think I have dupes for most of them.

A stunning green bundle, but for me, most of these shades aren’t suitable. I don’t wear the more neon or matte shades of green. However, I think this bundle represents great value and the shades are of excellent quality to be used all year round.
I think that Tangy Citrus is quite a unique shade and my favourite was Swwetsop.

I think this may well be my favorite combination of greens I’ve seen so far (in various palettes).

I was able to get this set, plus the Autumn Reign Palette (which I checked on a whim; so glad I did, because it was restocked). *Happy dancing*

I already got the CP Just My Luck Palette and thought that I didn’t need this but I think I do! If I can snag this on 5/12, will be my first Sydney Grace order. Thanks for the swatches/review!

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
