Embellishment

Clionadh Embellishment Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($11.99 CAD for 0.05 oz.) has a dirty yellow base paired with multichrome shimmer/fine sparkle that shifted from greenish-gold to peachy gold to pink-peach to burnt orange. It had a very shiny, slightly sparkly sheen.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, emollient, almost cream-like
  • More loosely-pressed, applied evenly
  • Long-wearing (9 hours)

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.05 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to "apply relatively easy to the lid when patted on with a finger," but for "maximum longevity and intensity, apply over a set primer" or a "tacky base" for "larger-particle glitters." The brand goes on to stay that this formula can be applied with "your finger or a shader brush sprayed with setting spray" and then patted onto the lid. They also warn not to "dig" one's brush as they are "more delicate" in texture.

The base pigmentation varied from shade to shade, and the brand uses different particle sizes throughout the range, so some are finer and more pigmented and others may be more sparkly with a sheerer base. Keep in mind, the base being sheerer doesn't equate to a sheerer end product; the actual eyeshadows often appeared mostly opaque to opaque due to how packed they are with shimmer/sparkle--but it depended on the angle.

They end up being a bit more like traditional eyeshadow, since the bases have various colors (not black or transparent) with multichromatic shifts that varied from more intense to subtler. I felt like they were "easier" to use than the Jewelled Multichromes, especially if you're someone who uses more than a few shades at a time, though they have less of a high-shine finish and more of a twinkling/sparkling finish.

The texture was more loosely-pressed--definitely "delicate" as indicated by the brand--and worked best by patting or pressing onto the lid with a fingertip or a wet brush. They're still quite usable with a dry brush but definitely use a denser brush and a gentle pressing motion to pick up product. The texture itself was very soft, almost silky, and finely-milled; for has twinkling as the finish was, Clionadh's idea of "glitter" is more like fine sparkle.

The big difference with this formula is that the sheerer base makes them easier to sheer out for an all-over wash of color on the lid or diffused on the brow bone, but they can also be pressed into place without heavy blending for an intense, spotlight effect.

While setting spray or glitter glue would help to maximize longevity (by minimizing fallout over time), there was only light some fallout over time when pressed onto the lid with a fingertip and slight fallout applied with a dampened brush (wet with water) over eight to nine hours. The sparkles were finer and had better adhesion to bare skin, so the formula didn't need the most intense solution to minimize fallout in my experience.

Etched

Clionadh Etched Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($13.99 CAD for 0.05 oz.) has a rich, royal purple base with multichrome shimmer and fine sparkle that shifted from icy blue to cool purple to warmer purple. It had more of a “glimmering” finish than what “glitter” might convey.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, emollient, almost cream-like
  • More loosely-pressed, applied evenly
  • Long-wearing (9 hours)

These are so beautiful, and I’ve yet to try the brand. However, I’ve read reviews that these shadows are very crumbly with heavy fallout, they need glitter glue etc etc so I’m not sure. Christine, are they suitable to use as eye liners at all? If so, then I shall be a very happy bunny indeed πŸ™‚
