Clionadh Illumination is a slightly warm-toned, light duochrome with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $8.50 and contains 0.05 oz.
Clionadh Illumination Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.75 for 0.05 oz.) has a transparent base chalked full of shimmer and fine sparkle that gave it an intense, metallic sheen that shifted from light, yellowy-green to gold to mind green to cooler, bluer aqua.
It almost looked like a pastel rainbow-hued gradient at times. Per the brand, it shifts from "lime-turquoise-blue." The shift between cooler, bluish-aqua to warmer green/gold was most apparent when I applied it to the inner tearduct/lid area, whereas on the brow bone it tended to look more golden or greener but didn't usually reach really bluish.
The texture was smooth to the touch, more loosely-pressed but not to the point where it was excessively powdery in the pan but a lighter hand would be recommended when working with it. The product applied evenly to bare skin when I pressed and patted it into place, then blended, which avoided fallout (sweeping had some fallout). It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, even applied with a dry brush, that lasted nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
These shadows appear white in the pan, but have intense colour shifting reflects. They have a nearly transparent base, so they work great for all skin tones. They are multipurpose and can be used on the eyes, lips, face and body. These apply the same way you would any standard highlight or shadow, so you can apply using your preferred method. They work great for transforming other eyeshadow shades when applied on top. They also make for fun lip-toppers. Apply to the inner corner of an eye look and/or on the brow bone to brighten up any look. For an even more intense highlight, pick the product up on your brush and then spritz it lightly with setting spray before applying.
