Glazed

Clionadh Glazed Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a sheer, lavender base with larger sparkles that shifted from pink to peachy gold to pale gold paired with a metallic finish. paired with larger sparkles. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “pink-orange-gold” with a “sheer” base.

The texture was incredibly soft, silky, and smooth, despite being a more sparkly shade, but despite the use of “glitter” in the formula name, it uses flatter sparkles that have better adhesion and are nowhere near as chunky as actual glitter (often made out of plastic). It had buildable coverage form medium to mostly opaque when applied with dry brush, while application with fingertips or a dampened brush yielded more opaque coverage (and the latter two were the recommended application methods).

There was light fall when I worked with it dry–again, not recommended by the brand but to make it easier to compare across formulas, I still try it that way!–with minimal fallout applied with fingertips and none when applied with a dampened brush. The eyeshadow stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly and had minimal fallout over time.

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.

Spotlight

Clionadh Spotlight Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a semi-translucent, brighter pink base that shifted from blue to bluish-purple to pink with a fine, sparkling shine. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “blue-indigo-pink” with a “semi-sheer” base.

There was quite a bit of shimmer/sparkle in it, so while the base color was sheerer, as anticipated, it had high coverage when applied. The consistency was soft, more loosely-pressed, so it was best to use with a lighter-hand to avoid excess product getting kicked up in the pan. It was very workable with a dry brush as the coverage applied evenly, built up to full coverage with less than a second layer, and had light fallout at worst. However, it did apply better with a fingertip or a dampened brush; the two yielded more opaque coverage that was slightly smoother and has less fallout. It wore well for nine hours before showing signs of fading, though there was light fallout over time.

Well, I must really have a thing for light lavender metallic e/s’s, because I have 3 dupes for Glazed! It very nearly landed on my WL, until I looked at the Dupes In My Vanity and saw this. Truly a magnificent version, though. ?

I really like this brand. Haven’t bought anything yet but definitely going to. Will pick up from the colors you have swatched. Though it will be hard as most of them are so beautiful, that it’s unbelievable. Sometimes I feel pat mcgrath and clionadh are the only eyeshadows a person needs. Will make a palette for my daughter too. She will love it.

I think these are beautiful shades that will mix and match well with myriad others. The quality of these shadows is consistently excellent. I love your eye looks with them Christine.
