Clionadh Verte is a slightly cool-toned, medium-dark duochrome with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $15.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Clionadh Verte Deep Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a warmer, brownish base with a metallic finish that shifted from bright, emerald green to muted, navy blue to mid-tone purple. The brand described the shift as "emerald-turquoise-purple-pink," and the pink was more of a lighter, warmer purple to my eye and there at the most extreme end. In person, I felt like all the shifts, except pink, were easy to see applied.
The warmer, more translucent base is designed to work well on deeper skin tones. It had good color coverage in a single layer but applied with full coverage when used with fingertips or a dampened brush. I was able to build up to full coverage with a dry brush using a second layer of product. The consistency was lightly emollient without being too dense or too thick, and it didn't seem quite as fragile as other finishes so I could use a moderate hand to pick up product (if desired). It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

These are our “Deep Iridescent Multichromes”, which refers to the depth of the base tone. We always want to create products that are as inclusive as possible, and while regular white-based iridescent shadows look beautiful on so many skin tones, we realize that no matter how transparent the base is, they can leave a white cast if they are built up too much. As such, we are happy to welcome these 5 new shades that sport a tanned base, making them ideal for medium to deep skin tones.
