Utopia

Clionadh Utopia Duochrome Eyeshadow ($5.25 for 0.06 oz.) is a very light pink with pink-to-violet shifting shimmer that had a warmer base and cooler shimmer, though I found it looked cooler-toned overall. The finish was bright and metallic.

It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. The texture was soft, more loosely-pressed than most of the duochrome shades but not to the point where it became powdery or prone to fallout. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$5.25/0.06 oz. - $87.50 Per Ounce

There do not appear to be any specific claims made for the brand's regular eyeshadow range, so being held to typical industry claims (as well as looking at the brand swatches), I'd expect rich pigmentation along with being blendable. The brand has an assortment of finishes, and the price point varies from finish to finish and has some variance within finish as well, but they tend to range from $6.00 CAD to $8.00 CAD, which converts to around $5.00 to $7.00 USD.

The more shimmery formulas were similar; they tended to be dense, lightly creamy, and blendable with excellent pigmentation and minimal chance of fallout. Some of the more sparkly shades felt more loosely-pressed while a few metallics were more emollient to the touch. They typically wore between eight and eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly (without primer).

Talisman

Clionadh Talisman Metallic Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was smooth, creamy, and moderately dense but a little thicker, so I found it was better applied by pressing and patting it on (or using a fingertip) to get a smoother, even layer of product. It had rich pigmentation that wore well for eight hours on me.

Prophecy

Clionadh Prophecy Duochrome Eyeshadow ($5.25 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with soft, warm undertones paired with warmer, peach and gold shifting shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly.

Molten

Clionadh Molten Duochrome Eyeshadow ($5.25 for 0.06 oz.) is a light orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a golden shimmer that resulted in a metallic finish. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy without being too thick or too dense, so it picked up well with a dry brush while having excellent adhesion to bare skin. It had opaque color coverage that lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Orb

Clionadh Orb Duochrome Eyeshadow ($5.25 for 0.06 oz.) is a brighter, lemony-lime green with subtle, warmer golden undertones and much cooler, dominating lime green shimmer that shifted slightly warmer at an angle paired with a metallic finish.

It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and built up to full coverage with a second layer or applied with a fingertip. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy and not too dense. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Prophecy is a delightful looking lid shade! Almost a duochrome!
Also love Utopia for a brightening inner corner shade in a purple or plum look.
And a very different Orb also now has my heart. Perfect cool green duochrome with a cooler shift to it
