Clionadh Patina Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened base with a metallic, multichrome finish that shifted between warmer, chartreuse green, olive green, emerald green, and green-leaning teal. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “gold-lime-emerald-turquoise.” I felt like I detected all of the shifts as the brand described, but the shifts are subtle as the gradient is more natural (lighter green to deeper green), so it doesn’t seem as dramatic compared to some of the other shades in the range.

The texture felt smooth, lightly creamy to the touch, and was easy to work with. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out without a fuss along the edges, but you’ll want to do minimal blending along the edges if you want the strongest shift as the more blended the edge gets, the blacker base comes through and the shift disappears (nature of the beast!). It wore well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of creasing on me.

The formula was described as "finely milled, ultra rich pigments" that have a "black base and intense colour shifting reflects" with the "end result [being] a saturated, vibrantly shifting shadow."

For those new to Multichromes, the brand has a nice application guide that walks customers through application. The big takeaway is with black-based Multichromes, less is more when it comes to blending as the more one blends, the more the base comes through and the shifting shimmer disappears. They can be used wet or dry, with a dry or wet brush, or with fingertips in "patting motions instead of swiping."

Clionadh's formula worked well with an assortment of brushes--flat shader brushes, fluffier shader brushes, narrow and larger pencil brushes, and even fluffier crease brushes. I liked using a small, lightly rounded crease brush to apply and diffuse product in my crease to buff out the edge for a blacker base to come through, which I found helped to blend the Multichrome shade with any transition/crease shade I might have used. A flatter, but not firm, shader brush worked well to deposit color all over the lid, especially on smaller areas, but fingertip application yielded the most intense, shiniest finish along with deeper color.

Multichromes are, in a way, the equivalent of applying three or four or five shades on an area at a given time, so for someone who likes the effect of more than one shade on the lid but may not feel as confident about blending... a multichrome gives some of that end result with less effort. It also does it in a reverse way, too, as they often shift slightly different from left to right, right to left, top to bottom, and bottom to top.

The consistency was smooth to the touch, dense and slightly thicker with a creamy, lightly emollient feel. A few shades felt more cream-like than powder-like, but most felt like a richer, creamier metallic by touch. The brand recommended applying the eyeshadows first as "there may be some fallout," though it seemed minor in my experience--the creamier consistency made the eyeshadow adhere readily to bare skin (or over primer).

I found them easier to use than expected, as I didn't feel like they had to be used with a wet brush or a fingertip to get opaque, even coverage, and they were blendable along the edges. The black base does make it harder to wear along the lower lash line without getting a noticeable shadow where the edge gets diffused, and the same was true around the inner tearduct (the brand's Iridescent Multichromes are better for these areas as they have a transparent base).

They had a tendency to crease faintly on me after eight to nine hours of wear without primer and more reliably between 10 and 12 hours over an eyeshadow primer. The shift became a bit more faded after seven to eight hours compared to the initial application over bare skin and around 10 hours over primer.

The brand recommended applying this formula over a "dried-down primer," which is actually unusual to see for an eyeshadow formula, so since most of the formulas I test don't require primer for testing, I tested all shades both ways so that they can be more readily compared to other formulas on the market.

Clionadh Gargoyle Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened base with a metallic, multichrome finish that shifted from warmer, olive green to forest green to brighter, emerald green to bluish-teal. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “warm pewter-lime-emerald-turquoise-indigo violet.”

There was a hint of bluish-purple at the very, very far end of the shift but that was the color I was hard-pressed to see in person, whereas the others were more noticeable depending on the angle and lighting situations (brighter, warmer, natural, and low light yield subtle differences in shift but all show some shift between two to four shades!).

It was richly pigmented in a single layer, and it was easy to use it with a dry brush but had the most intense shine and depth when applied with a fingertip. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy and almost emollient to the touch, and dense without being too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly.
