Clionadh Engrave Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($ 7.50 for 0.05 oz.) Is a muted, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a mix of pink and coppery shimmer / micro-glossy spots, plus a shift from lighter, cooler pink to warmer pink to golden copper paired with a sparkling metallic finish. According to the brand, it had a “semi-transparent brown base with large glitter particles shifting from purple-pink-orange-gold”. The shift was visible in person, but more subtle to moderate.

The texture was soft and looser in the pan, so use a lighter hand recommended by the brand and squeeze and pat the product to avoid slight breakdowns when working with a dry brush. Even though a fingertip or moistened brush was opaque as to be applied, it even gave results without failure. It had mostly an opaque coverage (in the form of a shimmer), while the base itself had a semi-transparent to medium coverage – more noticeable when pushed out on purpose. It stayed with me for a good eight and a half hours with very little failures over time.

Formula overview

The formula is said to “apply relatively lightly to the lid with a finger tap” but apply over a fixed primer for maximum longevity and intensity “or a” sticky base “for” glitter with larger particles “. The brand goes on to say that this formula can be applied with “your finger or a shader brush sprayed with a setting spray,” then tapped the lid. They also caution against “digging” the brush as their texture is “more delicate”.

The base pigmentation varied from shade to shade, and the brand uses different particle sizes across the range, so some can be finer and more pigmented and others with a more transparent base can be more sparkling. Remember that the basis, which is sheer, does not mean a sheer end product. The actual eyeshadows often appeared to be opaque to opaque for the most part, as they were full of shimmer / sparkle – but it depended on the angle.

They are more like a traditional eye shadow in that the bases are different colors (not black or transparent) with multicolored shifts that vary from more intense to more subtle. I felt that they are “easier” to use than the Jeweled Multichromes, especially if you are someone who uses more than a couple of hues at a time, even though they are less glossy and more sparkly / sparkly.

The texture was more loosely pressed – definitely “tender” as stated by the brand – and worked best by tapping or squeezing the lid with a fingertip or damp brush. They’re still fine to use with a dry brush, but definitely use a denser brush and a gentle pushing motion to pick up the product. The texture itself was very soft, almost silky, and finely ground; Clionadh’s idea of ​​”glitter” is more like a fine sparkle.

The big difference from this formula is that the sheer base makes it easier to spread on the lid or browbone for a full wash of paint. However, they can also be squeezed in place without vigorous mixing for intense mixing. Headlight effect.

While spray or glitter glue setting would help maximize longevity (by minimizing failure over time), there was only slight failure over time when pressed onto the lid with a fingertip and moistened with a moistened one Brush (wet with water) turned out slightly over eight to nine hours. The glitters were finer and stuck better to bare skin, so in my experience the formula didn’t need the most intense solution to minimize breakdowns.

Clionadh Ray Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadow (Series 2) ($ 14.25 for 0.05 oz.) Has more of a transparent base with an incredibly intense shift from light, golden peach to warmer pink to pink coral, coupled with a sparkling, almost metallic sheen. According to the brand, it has an “almost invisible base with color-shifting reflections that emanate from pink-red-orange-gold-lime”. The “lime” was the hardest part of the shift, really recognizing me, but the others got through very, very quickly.

It had a transparent base as described, the color-shifting bead / shimmer provided a semi-opaque, buildable cover (opaque when applied wet), although it could be faded out if desired. The texture was smooth, slightly creamy, and more loosely pressed in the pan, but not to the point where it was prone to excess product (use only a light to moderate hand to pick up the product). It carried well for nine hours before it visibly faded.

For those who find more popular multichrome formulas (often those with a black base) harder to incorporate into the look, the Iridescents are some of the more versatile multichromes I’ve come across that offer intense, changing effects, whether alone or plain can be used out, over an eyeliner or over your favorite eyeshadow. They’re also a bit smoother and tightly pressed into the pan, with a generally finer shimmer / sparkle, making them less fragile and prone to failure.

They work well with dry or firmer brushes, as well as fingertips and damp brushes. The last two methods mentioned give more intensive and metallic surfaces and a somewhat more even application from the start. The majority of the shades had a semi-opaque to opaque color coverage – more of the shimmer / shift as the bases are designed to be transparent – that faded out slightly and stuck well for eight to nine hours before fading.
