Torch

Clionadh Torch Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) had a darker, reddish-copper base paired with shifting sparkle/shimmer that moved from darker red to rusty orange to orange-gold paired with a sparkling finish Per the brand, it has a “pigmented copper base with medium glitter particles that shift from red-orange-gold.” I found this description accurate without having to go specifically hunting for the more extreme ends of the spectrum, though the stronger base in this one meant that it stayed more reddish at most angles.

The texture was soft, more loosely-pressed in the pan, and a touch drier compared to other Multichrome finishes from the brand but still had a good amount of binder, which helped to minimize fallout. Applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush, which are as recommended, the eyeshadow went on evenly, smoothly, and had almost no fallout. I was still able to apply it by pressing it into place using a dry brush with little fallout, so if you’re not someone who wants to go the extra step and doesn’t like using fingertips, dry brushes are totally workable. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

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.

Blaze

Clionadh Blaze Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a more transparent base chocked-full of shimmer/sparkle that shifted from lighter darker orange to brighter orange to very warm gold paired with a sparkling finish. Per the brand, it has a “sheer orange base with medium glitter particles that shift from peach-gold-lime.” I wasn’t able to detect the “lime” shift readily–it was barely there when I looked hard enough for it.

The texture was more sparkly, so it felt slightly drier compared to other Multichromes from the brand but was consistent with the Glitter formula. There was light fallout when I worked with it dry, though it was easier and more fallout-resistant when used with a dampened brush or fingertip (which are the recommended methods). It had opaque color coverage from all of the shimmer/shifting pigments. It wore well for eight and a half hours with slight fallout over time.

I could so see these two pairing beautifully with each other! It would probably have the appearance of one of our orange/raspberry sherbet sunsets, or so I imagine.
