Clionadh Foiling is a very warm-toned, medium duochrome with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $10.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Clionadh Foiling Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a darker, golden copper with strong, warm undertones and flecks of larger sparkles that shifted from gold to greenish-gold to chartreuse. Per the brand, it had a "pigmented" base with an "orange-gold-lime" shift, which was an accurate description. This shade had some of the larger sparkles and was closer to the kind of sparkle I see by more mainstream brands (I'd argue a lot of the other shades are rather fine!).
The texture had some glide to it--emollient in a more velvety, primer-like way but not wet like a cream eyeshadow--which helped the sparkles and base bind better together. Despite that, it was still a more loosely-pressed formula, so I wouldn't go fluffing a brush across the surface and would rather press and pick up color. It didn't powder up so much as flakes of product were more readily dislodged from the surface when used more heavily. This particular finish/formula came with a warning that it was fragile, so this was as expected--but the reality for me was this shade seemed more fragile compared to most of the shades in the range. In my experience, shades with larger sparkle were more fragile than ones with finer sparkle.
It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was best applied by pressing or patting it onto the skin, then buffing out the edges. I did experience light to moderate fallout when I used a dry brush, while the recommended methods--fingertips or a dampened brush--were more successful at minimizing fallout but I did get slight fallout when blending it out with those methods. This shade lasted well for nine hours before fading slightly but had light fallout over time.
