Burnish

Clionadh Burnish Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a black-based multichrome that shifted between a deeper, honey gold to antique gold to olive green. Per the brand, it shifts between “orange-gold-yellow-lime.” I was able to catch all the shifts, though I’d say more copper-gold than orange and then more warmer, olive green to green-heavy olive green than lime-lime!

The texture was smooth, more loosely-pressed so using a lighter hand is ideal to minimize getting an excessive amount of product on the brush (which can result in fallout). I didn’t have any issues using a dry brush to apply the eyeshadow on my lid, though a dampened brush or fingertip certainly yielded quick, opaque results, too. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.05 oz. – $380.00 Per Ounce

The formula was described as “finely milled, ultra rich pigments” that have a “black base and intense colour shifting reflects” with the “end result [being] a saturated, vibrantly shifting shadow.”

For those new to Multichromes, the brand has a nice application guide that walks customers through application. The big takeaway is with black-based Multichromes, less is more when it comes to blending as the more one blends, the more the base comes through and the shifting shimmer disappears. They can be used wet or dry, with a dry or wet brush, or with fingertips in “patting motions instead of swiping.”

Clionadh’s formula worked well with an assortment of brushes–flat shader brushes, fluffier shader brushes, narrow and larger pencil brushes, and even fluffier crease brushes. I liked using a small, lightly rounded crease brush to apply and diffuse product in my crease to buff out the edge for a blacker base to come through, which I found helped to blend the Multichrome shade with any transition/crease shade I might have used. A flatter, but not firm, shader brush worked well to deposit color all over the lid, especially on smaller areas, but fingertip application yielded the most intense, shiniest finish along with deeper color.

Multichromes are, in a way, the equivalent of applying three or four or five shades on an area at a given time, so for someone who likes the effect of more than one shade on the lid but may not feel as confident about blending… a multichrome gives some of that end result with less effort. It also does it in a reverse way, too, as they often shift slightly different from left to right, right to left, top to bottom, and bottom to top.

The consistency was smooth to the touch, dense and slightly thicker with a creamy, lightly emollient feel. A few shades felt more cream-like than powder-like, but most felt like a richer, creamier metallic by touch. The brand recommended applying the eyeshadows first as “there may be some fallout,” though it seemed minor in my experience–the creamier consistency made the eyeshadow adhere readily to bare skin (or over primer).

I found them easier to use than expected, as I didn’t feel like they had to be used with a wet brush or a fingertip to get opaque, even coverage, and they were blendable along the edges. The black base does make it harder to wear along the lower lash line without getting a noticeable shadow where the edge gets diffused, and the same was true around the inner tearduct (the brand’s Iridescent Multichromes are better for these areas as they have a transparent base).

They had a tendency to crease faintly on me after eight to nine hours of wear without primer and more reliably between 10 and 12 hours over an eyeshadow primer. The shift became a bit more faded after seven to eight hours compared to the initial application over bare skin and around 10 hours over primer.

The brand recommended applying this formula over a “dried-down primer,” which is actually unusual to see for an eyeshadow formula, so since most of the formulas I test don’t require primer for testing, I tested all shades both ways so that they can be more readily compared to other formulas on the market.

Vermeil

Clionadh Vermeil Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a black-based multichrome that shifted between warmer, darker orange-gold to yellow gold to olive green to more forest green paired with a metallic finish. Per the brand, it shifts between “warm gold-yellow-lime,” which was fairly accurate (their interpretation of lime, I tend to see just green!). It has a cooler-toned green end and a less orange-toned end compared to Burnish, which just runs warmer overall.

The texture was smooth, lightly emollient but not thick or too thin, so it had good adhesion to bare skin and sat well. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly with a dry brush, though a dampened brush certainly gave a slightly more intense result. This shade stayed on nicely for nine hours before creasing faintly.

Weld

Clionadh Weld Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a black-based multichrome that shifted between rosy plum to dirty, darker gold to olive green to emerald green to bluish-teal paired with a metallic finish. Per the brand, it shifts between “grungy rose pink-antique gold-lime-teal-navy.” I was able to detect all the shifts, though the “navy” shift is at the most extreme end and is hard to catch. I felt like it was more obvious that it went from warmer green to cooler, almost bluish-green than full-on blue.

It had rich color coverage in a single layer, and it applied well regardless of the technique (dry brush, dampened brush, or fingertips) as the product picked up well and had good adhesion to bare skin. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and blendable along the edges without losing its shift too readily at the edge. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
