Terra Moons M51 is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium duochrome with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Terra Moons M51 Extreme Multichrome Shadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a gray base with multichrome shifting shimmer that went from olive green to cooler green to bluish-lavender to purple paired with a metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even laydown of product that was easy to blend out along the edges without losing the shift too readily.
The texture was soft, more loosely-pressed but well-formulated so the powder had enough binder to minimize fallout and have good adhesion to skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

At first glance, these shadows appear to be one color in the pan however multichromes are expensive pigments that shift colors depending on the lighting. They have black bases which is what allows for the intense color changes, however we suggest to avoid blending them to preserve the extreme multichrome shift. Our shadows are very pigmented and smooth. You can apply these to your lids using your finger or a dry brush. If you want to intensify the multichrome finish, use a setting spray to wet your brush before applying.
