Clionadh Majesty & Throne Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadows Critiques & Swatches


majesty

Clionadh Majesty Vibrant multicolored eyeshadow ($ 12.50 for 0.05 oz.) Has a medium black, yellowish-orange base with a sparkling sheen that changed from yellow gold to green gold to lime green. According to the brand, it should switch between “gold-green-turquoise”. I don’t know that I was able to capture the change from green to turquoise (even personally) that well, but the intensity of the golden-green shift made the base appear reddish-orange to warmer, more marigold, depending on the angle.

It had rich coverage of paint in a single coat regardless of how I applied it – fingertips, dry brushes, or dampened brushes – and it seemed to go very smoothly and evenly, giving me no problems with dropouts. There was a hint of precipitation when I applied it by patting the lid with a dry brush. The eyeshadow had a smooth, slightly creamy texture that was squeezed loosely into the pan and only took a light hand to pick up a lot of product. It carried well for eight and a half hours before it faded slightly.

The formula is said to have an “intense color shift reflex and a colorful, saturated base” with more “small / medium particles” and therefore “behave” similarly to the brand’s Glitter Multichrome.

For reference, the glitter multichromes have “different levels of opacity” and gloss sizes (they do not contain plastic or PET glitter and are safe for the eyes!). According to the brand, they recommend applying it by tapping it on with a fingertip or a dampened brush and using a sticky base (“glitter glue”) for shades with larger particle sizes. They also warn against using a lighter hand with the formula and that “there may be some failures while applying”.

One of the nicer things about shopping from indie brands is that they often provide more detailed information on how to use their products and fix potential flaws, such as: Clionadh mentions that failure can occur during use, which is rarely seen (in general).

The Vibrant Multichromes were very pigmented and were applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush, although I had no problem picking up and applying a product with a dry brush. Often times, when I squeezed / patted the shade, the top coat would become semi-opaque – and I had minimal impact.

For as sparkling and as gently squeezed as the formula was, I was actually surprised that there was no more fallout. It was so minimal that I didn’t feel the need to clean up – I just put my primer on it. You should use a lighter hand and make a more urgent movement rather than twirling or thrusting movements to pick up the product.

The formula has a saturated base color along with contrasting shimmer / sparkle, and then there is a multichromatic shift. The shift wasn’t as intense / noticeable as with the Jeweled Multichromes – which was as expected! – but I think the Vibrant Multichromes can look more impressive because they really change at all angles between the moderate shift and the sparkle. They are extremely multi-dimensional hues and since they don’t have a more intense black base they are very forgiving if you over-mix the edge / base.

They wore on me between eight and nine hours with minimal fading and falling out over time (tested over bare skin!).

throne

Clionadh Throne Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadow ($ 12.50 for 0.05 oz.) Has a rich, yellow base that looked more lemon-yellow to warmer, golden-yellow as the shimmer shifted from warm pink to gold to green-gold to a lighter chartreuse. According to the brand, it should switch between “red gold lime”.

The color was incredibly dimensional; When I wore it in the inner teardrop area, I saw it looked more chartreuse and yellow, while the shimmer gave it a peach pink gold that sparkled in most angles. I could see the green shift more clearly on the lower lash line. The eyeshadow had an opaque color yield that adhered well to the bare skin with a smooth, even application of color. I used a dry brush to apply it because I didn’t feel like it needed fingertips or a dampened brush (although they worked too!).

The texture was more loosely pressed, so a light hand worked best to avoid tossing excess product into the pan. However, it did not come out as quickly and did not cause any problems with failures during use or while wearing. This shade lasted a good eight and a half hours before fading a little.
