Gleam

Clionadh Gleam Iridescent Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($10.50 for 0.05 oz.) has a more translucent base with multichromatic shifting shimmer/sparkle that went between cooler pink, warmer pink, orange, and yellowy gold. Per the brand, it is described as having “a translucent base that reflects pink-orange-yellow.” This felt like an accurate representation of the shifts, which I was able to see with ease.

The texture was smooth, lightly emollient to the touch, and more loosely-pressed into the pan, so a lighter hand and pressing motion was best for picking up product without over-applying. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that could be sheered out for more of a wash of shimmer/sparkle if desired. There was a touch of fallout during application, but the product stayed on well for eight and a half hours after that.

Formula Overview

$7.75/0.05 oz. – $155.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a “nearly transparent base” so they can be used on all skin tones (despite appearing white in the pan), and they “can be used on eyes, lips, face and body.” While other Multichromes may require more specific application or technique, the brand says that this formula can be used “the same way you would” apply any “highlight or shadow.”

The “Glitter” finish (which isn’t actual, plastic PET glitter!) is more loosely-pressed in the pan, so they need to be used with a lighter hand. They can also have some fallout when used with a dry brush, which is why the brand specified to apply with a fingertip or a wet brush, though I definitely found them very usable with a dry brush (with minor clean-up of fallout required). They wore between eight and nine hours on me before fading a bit.

I found that the shift wasn’t as dramatic between the three described color shifts per shade (some more so than others), but they did have a dramatic shift between at least two shades.

I tried a few shades as cheek highlighters, and they applied well on cheeks and diffused readily along the edges without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. They wore between eight and nine hours as cheek highlighters as well.

Gilding

Clionadh Gilding Iridescent Glitter Multichrome Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a silver base with shimmer/sparkle that shifted between yellowy gold, peach, and aqua. Per the brand, it is described as having “a silvery iridescent base that reflects pink-orange-yellow-lime.” I didn’t get as much of a pink-orange vibe–a little more in person than captured in my swatches–but it was a brighter, aqua-yellow-peach overall.

The texture was smooth to the touch, more emollient, but it was one of the more sparkly shades, which I felt resulted in a little more fallout and a slightly less-even application of product. I’d recommend applying this with a fingertip for sure as it didn’t apply well with a dry brush (which wasn’t as recommended, but I’ve found most shades are versatile enough to apply in a multitude of ways). It had semi-opaque color coverage that lasted well for eight hours before creasing faintly but had some additional fallout over time.
