Clionadh Weld is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark duochrome with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Clionadh Weld Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a black-based multichrome that shifted between rosy plum to dirty, darker gold to olive green to emerald green to bluish-teal paired with a metallic finish. Per the brand, it shifts between "grungy rose pink-antique gold-lime-teal-navy." I was able to detect all the shifts, though the "navy" shift is at the most extreme end and is hard to catch. I felt like it was more obvious that it went from warmer green to cooler, almost bluish-green than full-on blue.
It had rich color coverage in a single layer, and it applied well regardless of the technique (dry brush, dampened brush, or fingertips) as the product picked up well and had good adhesion to bare skin. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and blendable along the edges without losing its shift too readily at the edge. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

These are finely milled, ultra rich pigments. They have a black base and intense colour shifting reflects. They’re packed with a high pigment concentration, so the end result is a saturated, vibrantly shifting shadow. These pigments are a new type of technology. It doesn’t behave like a typical, mica-based metallic. Apply over a dried-down primer. For optimal performance, apply over an unset primer. A tacky base (glitter glue) can also be used, but it is not necessary. You can apply with your finger or a dense packing or shader brush, such as the ones from our Stained Glass Brush Collection. Apply with patting motions instead of swiping. You can foil the shadow while on the brush using a setting spray. We recommend using MAC Fix Plus, but any setting spray will work. This will help minimize fallout and increase intensity. These shades blend out to a black base and lose their coloured shifts when blended too much. We recommend minimally buffing the edges of the shadow with a clean brush if you wish to soften them. The greater the curvature of the surface these shadows are applied to (i.e. eyelid), the more prominent the coloured shifts will be. Thus, we recommend using a maximum of two shades on your eye to get the full payoff of each shade. These also work great over top of black eyeliner for a more “wearable” multichrome look. We recommend applying your black eyeliner first and then laying the shadow on top in a thin layer to minimize fallout. You can spray the shadow with a setting spray on your liner brush or use a mixing medium for a smoother application.
