Fluoresce

Clionadh Fluoresce Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadow (Series 2) ($14.25 for 0.05 oz.) had a transparent base with multichrome shimmer that shifted between cool, bluish-aqua to sky blue to bluish-lavender to cotton candy pink paired with a metallic sheen. Per the brand, it has a “translucent base that reflects turquoise-blue-violet-pink.” I loved how intense the shift was in this shade, and it really looked like it was dancing as it was so shiny and had finer sparkle throughout that twinkled.

The consistency was moderately dense, not too thick or too loosely-pressed into the pan, which helped the product adhere smoothly to bare skin without having fallout be a concern. It had nearly opaque pigmentation from the shift, though the base was transparent, so the skin could show through if sheered out. There were signs of fading apparent after eight and a half hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$14.25/0.05 oz. - $285.00 Per Ounce

For those who find more popular Multichrome formulas (often the ones with black bases) harder to incorporate into looks, the Iridescents are some of the more versatile Multichromes I've come across that offer intense, shifting effects whether they're used alone, sheered out, over an eyeliner, or patted over one's favorite eyeshadow. They are also a bit smoother and firmly-pressed into the pan with a, generally, finer shimmer/sparkle to them, so they are less fragile and prone to fallout.

They work well with dry brushes, whether firmer or fluffier, along with fingertips and dampened brushes. The latter two methods yield more intense and metallic finishes and slightly more even application from the get-go. The majority of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque color coverage--more from the shimmer/shift as the bases are designed to be transparent--that blended out easily and stayed on well for eight to nine hours before fading.

UV

Clionadh UV Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadow (Series 2) ($14.25 for 0.05 oz.) has a translucent base with a sparkling sheen that shifted between cooler lavender and warmer lavender. Per the brand, it has a “translucent base that reflects indigo-violet-peach.” It was really hard to detect the peach shift, though it was a little more apparent in person than in photos.

The texture was smooth, more finely-milled and lightly emollient without being too loosely-pressed in the pan, so it was easy to pick up with a dry brush but also worked well with a fingertip or a dampened brush if preferred. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a dry brush and opaque coverage with a fingertip. While the shift was weaker in this shade compared to most of the brand’s multichromes, this was very brightening as it was. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Oh no.. Fluoresce was not part of my Dec/20 order.. Just found out my order isn’t scheduled for shipping until the end of February since my choices were all pre-order. Jeez.. they better be spectacular..

Wednesday, I feel your pain about the long wait for your order. My order wasn’t a preorder and I still don’t have it. This was my first time ordering from them and I’m a bit disappointed.

I hope you get yours soon, Jessica. I received an email indicating all non-pre-orders (new word!) will be shipped by mid February. Then, of course, we have to deal with shipment/postal delays due to pandemic. I’m Canadian and know our National postal service is struggling. I just took delivery of an incoming priority parcel from USA and it took 3 weeks to get to me (over a week to negotiate customs alone).

Will your order be your first experience with Clionadh shadows? I promise, the wait is long, but these shadows are exceptional and SO worth it.

I have UV and it is unreal! I tried to take a video of the shift and it’s so blinding that it looks blown out on camera.

Fluoresce makes me think about a song from quite a many years ago, “McArthur’s Park”.
“All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don’t think that I can take it
‘Cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again
Oh no!”
I need this one for *reasons*.

It’s interesting how the product shot of UV in the pan looks so yellow! Reminds me of interference effect metallic artists’ paints, where the colour will appear – say – yellow over white or light colours, and violet over black, or blue over white and red over black. I wonder how similar the pigments involved are, considering the difference in requirements for something going onto skin vs. onto canvas.

I feel like I might’ve gotten a dud version of UV. After waiting a ridiculously long time for a regular (not pre-) order, mine is flaky as all get out and I cannot get it to adhere to any brush I own, wet or dry. When I did finally manage to get some on my eyelid, it was fallout city. If I was looking for a crazy disco look from the late 70’s, it might’ve worked, but I just wanted the awesome color shift added on top of a darker matte shadow. Alas, it was not to be. I am glad some others are having better experiences with it

I only picked up 3 shades in the non-preorder back in November, and I’m thrilled to say that Fluoresce is one of them. That color is dreamy. My order has been shipped, but still patiently awaiting it. These swatches reignited my excitement to play with these.
