Grisaille

Clionadh Grisaille Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) has more of a raspberry pink with shimmer that shifted from aqua to violet to magenta to almost green paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. Per the brand, it has a “semi-pigmented terracotta base with medium glitter particles that shift from turquoise-indigo-violet-pink.”

It had opaque color coverage overall, though the base had more medium coverage (as marketed) with the shimmer/sparkle delivering the rest of the coverage. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and blendable with good adhesion, even applied with a dry brush (though intended to be applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush). This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.

Stencil

Clionadh Stencil Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a cooler, bluish-purple base with shimmer and sparkle that from warmer purple to pink to coral to gold. The latter shift looked made the eyeshadow look almost aqua as the gold was over the purple base. Per the brand, it has a “pigmented purple base with medium glitter particles that shift from violet-pink-orange-gold.”

The consistency was lightly emollient with a chunkier, more textured feel, and while the base had some pigmentation to it, I wouldn’t call it pigmented (more medium in coverage), which resulted in a more noticeable unevenness when applied. I felt that this shade had to be applied with a dampened brush and pressed/patted on in layers to get higher coverage and then use another eyeshadow to blend out the edges. The brand mentioned that this finish is to be applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush, which was accurate, but it also needed some extra effort to apply decently. It had mostly opaque coverage–taken altogether–that lasted for eight hours on me with light fallout.

Both of these are gorgeous in their way. Not sure if I want to go with such large looking glitter particles or not, though. Perhaps if I had a special event to go to, I’d want one.

Grisaille is by far one of the prettiest of the Glitters in the Stained Glass collection. For me, it’s a toss up between Grisaille and Abrasion. Oh, and Stencil is beautiful too.

Clionadh’s eyeshadow are a dream for every eyeshadow lover… But they will remain only a dream for an European eyeshadow lover 🙁
