Sydney Grace Danny’s Dream 9-Pan Bundle 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).
Sydney Grace Tangy Citrus Pressed Pigment Shadow
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.
Sydney Grace Calmeria Matte Shadow
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.
Sydney Grace Green Anjou Matte Shadow
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 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.
Sydney Grace Honeydew Matte Shadow
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.
Sydney Grace Granny Smith Matte Shadow
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 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.
Sydney Grace Kiwifruit Matte Shadow
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. The consistency was soft, slightly dusty in the pan, but it didn’t seem prone to fallout or sheering out on my skin. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before it started to fade visibly.
Sydney Grace Key Lime Matte Shadow
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.
