Clionadh Carving is a slightly warm-toned, light-medium duochrome with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $10.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Clionadh Carving Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a nearly transparent base chocked full of sparkle and finer shimmer that shifted from warmer plum to purple to aqua to mint green. Per the brand, it has a "sheer, grungy, light brown base with medium-large glitter particles that shift from turquoise-indigo-violet-pink." At a glance, it does have a slightly warmer, plummy brown base at a lot of angles--it looks cooler, almost pinkish and more plum than brown when the pink/purple part of the shift is an action and darker, more like a cooler-toned brown with the shift is more blue/green.
The texture was smooth, more emollient but thin and seemed to have less to it than most shades in the range. Unlike other shades in the same formula, this had more medium coverage regardless of application--dry brush, fingertip, or dampened brush--that didn't build up much beyond that. I could see it looking a bit lighter/darker depending one's natural skin tone as a result.
As is the case with this formula, it was designed to be applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush, which were the best methods to achieve even coverage with little to no fallout. A dry brush was very workable but had some fallout during the initial application. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.
