Clionadh Sunbeam is a slightly warm-toned, light duochrome with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $10.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Clionadh Sunbeam Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a more transparent, light pink base with finer sparkles that shifted from peach to gold to chartreuse to aqua with a bright, metallic finish. The brand described the base as "sheer" with am "orange-gold-lime-turquoise" shift. To my eye, it was kind of lighter than most of those--like more peach than orange, more chartreuse than lime, and more like the lightest take on turquoise (or aqua, as I'd call it).
With the more transparent base, it was particularly versatile, and it had a lighter, brighter effect and color, so it worked well for inner tear duct, all-over the lid, or layered over another eyeshadow. This is one I find I think about and want to reach for extra oomph in a look. The base was sheerer, but the impact was more opaque--you can see the translucency in the first swatch but then see how reflective and seemingly opaque it is in the next photo.
It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was dense but not too firmly-pressed in the pan. The powder picked up well with a dry brush and applied readily with very minimal fallout, but as the brand recommended, fingertips/dampened brushes were even better. I just didn't find it necessary to switch from a dry brush because the fallout was really quite minimal (or even none, depending on tool). It lasted well for nine hours before fading a bit.
