Clionadh Translucency is a moderately warm-toned, light duochrome with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $10.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Clionadh Translucency Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a sheer, pale pink base that shifted from warmer pink to cooler pink to lavender paired with a sparkling finish that had smaller sparkles. This particular shade seemed more multidimensional as the sparkle/shimmer shifted as a multichrome would but seemed to have more contrasting sparkle at time,which gave it another dimension.
Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between "blue-indigo-violet-pink" and have a "sheer" base. That sheer base was more apparent at the edges of the swatch, but depending on the angle, the shimmer/sparkle shifting can result in opaque coverage as the end result. It was also m ore readily sheered out for a wash of color, and then that "sheer" base really was visible.
The consistency was more loosely-pressed but felt very soft, smooth, and silky--it was finely-milled and Clionadh's idea of glitter is more like fine sparkle. I like to get a baseline by using a mix of methods, and a dampened brush or fingertip was definitely the better methods for getting more coverage, smoother application, and minimizing fallout (which is how it's supposed to be applied). It was workable with a dry brush but definitely required a more ginger hand picking up product and some tolerance for fallout during application.
This shade lasted well for nine hours with light fallout when applied dry with a fingertip and slight fallout applied with a dampened brush. Applied with a setting spray (instead of just water), it had very minimal fallout over the same period of time.
