Clionadh Shard Hybrid Multichrome Eyeshadow ($12.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a brownish base that shifted from brighter, reddish-plum to deeper plum to bluish-teal paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. Per the brand, it has a "turquoise-indigo-violet-red and hints of orange" shift. I felt like that "hint" of orange came around the edge, almost like a bit of shimmer/warmth coming through at times, but it didn't read "shift" to my eyes in person.
It had a smoother, slightly more emollient consistency compared to most of the Hybrids, though it was still quite sparkly in addition to have a high-shine, smooth metallic finish. It was more loosely-pressed but had a good amount of binder to it, so the powder itself adhered well to bare skin and blended out with ease without much in the way of fallout, even when I used a dry brush to do so.
The brand-recommended methods for application are fingertips and dampened brush for highest coverage/lowest fallout, which would be the way to go, but a dry brush was still pretty easy to work with. It had opaque coverage applied with fingertips and a dampened brush and more semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a dry brush. This shade stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit and had a touch of fallout over time.

These are part way between our Jewelled and Glitter Multichrome formulas. They behave more like the small/medium particle glitters, but with the tones of our Jewelled Multichromes. They are buildable to allow for a slight wash of sparkle over the lid or transforming shadows, but can also be packed on for full saturation. Since these don’t have a black base (“Embroidery” is the darkest but it’s still not Jewelled Multichrome level), they are more everyday user-friendly and great for all ages and skin tones.
