Terra Moons Solar Expansion is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark duochrome with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Terra Moons Solar Expansion Extreme Multichrome Shadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a softer black base with multichrome sparkle that shifted from plummy red to dirty, green-gold to olive green to emerald green. It had an intense, sparkling and metallic finish that yielded a bit of fallout whenever I used it dry, though I didn't have issues with continued fallout during wear.
The texture was smooth, almost like a loosely-pressed cream-powder hybrid, so the binder helped the product adhere evenly to bare skin and have longer wear. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly 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.
