Clionadh Heirloom & Courtyard Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Heirloom

Clionadh Heirloom Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadow ($ 12.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium, bluish-teal base with sparkling shimmer that shifted from gold to green to bluish-teal that gave it a bright, metallic finish with a lot of shine. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “gold-green-turquoise,” which I was able to see in person without total contortion!

The consistency was soft, more loosely-pressed but not prone to fallout (even when I used a dry brush, it was very minimal; fingertip/dampened brush were the recommended methods of application!) and blended out beautifully without sheering out too readily. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$ 12.50/0.05 oz. – $ 250.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have an “intense colour shifting reflect and colourful, saturated base” with more of a “small/medium particle” sparkle, and as a result, “behaves” similar to the brand’s Glitter Multichromes.

For reference, the Glitter Multichromes have “varying levels of opacity” and sizes of sparkle (they do not contain plastic, or PET, glitter and are safe for eye-usage!). Per the brand, they recommend applying by patting it on with a fingertip or with a dampened brush along with using a tacky base (“glitter glue”) for shades with larger particle sizes. They also warn to use a lighter hand with the formula and that there “may be some fallout while applying.”

One of the nicer aspects of shopping indie brands is that they often provide more detailed information about how to apply their products and address potential short-comings, e.g. Clionadh mentions that there may be fallout during application, which is something rarely seen (generally).

The Vibrant Multichromes were very pigmented applied with a fingertip or with a dampened brush, though I had no trouble using a dry brush to pick up product and apply it, often getting semi-opaque to opaque coverage when I pressed/patted the shade into place–and I had minimal fallout.

For as sparkly and as softly-pressed as the formula was, I was actually surprised there wasn’t more fallout. It was quite minimal to the degree that I didn’t feel the need for clean-up–I just applied my foundation on top. You will want to use a lighter hand and do a more pressing motion, rather than swirling or jabbing motions, to pick up 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 Jewelled Multichromes–which was as expected!–but I think that the Vibrant Multichromes can look more impressive because they really change at all angles between the moderate shift paired with the sparkle. They are extremely multidimensional shades, and because they don’t have a more intense black base, they are very forgiving if you over-blend the edge/base.

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

Courtyard

Clionadh Courtyard Vibrant Multichrome Eyeshadow ($ 12.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, lime green base with metallic shimmer and faint sparkle that shifted from pinky-peach to peachy-gold to green-gold to more of a chartreuse green. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “peach-gold-lime.”

It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which applied well with a dry brush, dampened brush, or fingertips, though the latter two methods had no fallout and dry brush application had a touch of fallout–nothing concerning, though (you’ll want to press/pat it on initially, then diffuse and spread). The texture was more loosely-pressed but soft, smooth, and had light slip, which helped it apply evenly and stay on well on my lid. It lasted for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
