Clionadh Ray is a slightly cool-toned, light duochrome with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $8.50 and contains 0.05 oz.
Clionadh Ray Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadow ($7.75 for 0.05 oz.) has a transparent base with very fine pearl that shifted from brighter, cooler purple to pink to neon pink to peachy-pink to orange-gold. For as smooth and as fine as the pearl seemed, it still packed quite the punch--it actually looked like it was glowing to my eye!
This is actually the original version of Ray, which was discontinued, and it now exists as Ray, part of Series 2 Iridescent Multichromes, which are supposed to have a more intense shift/effect (which is why they are more expensive than Series 1 shades). I'm very curious to see how the updated version works as this one was quite intense to begin with (it's in a future order).
The texture was soft, smooth, and not quite as emollient as other shades, but it still had great adhesion and sat smoothly on my skin. It had good color coverage that applied evenly and blended out with ease. There was visible fading present after eight and a half hours of wear.
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.
