Clionadh Duochrome Eyeshadows Opinions & Swatches (Half Three of three)

Crucible

Clionadh Crucible Duochrome Eyeshadow ($5.25 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with cooler undertones and a more metallic finish with flecks of larger gold sparkle throughout. The consistency was creamier and slightly thicker, which helped the sparkles bind with something and minimized the opportunity for fallout.

It had opaque color coverage that picked up well with a brush and had good adhesion to bare skin. It stayed on well for eight hours with a very small amount of fallout overall.

Formula Overview

$5.25/0.06 oz. – $87.50 Per Ounce

There do not appear to be any specific claims made for the brand’s regular eyeshadow range, so being held to typical industry claims (as well as looking at the brand swatches), I’d expect rich pigmentation along with being blendable. The brand has an assortment of finishes, and the price point varies from finish to finish and has some variance within finish as well, but they tend to range from $6.00 CAD to $8.00 CAD, which converts to around $5.00 to $7.00 USD.

The more shimmery formulas were similar; they tended to be dense, lightly creamy, and blendable with excellent pigmentation and minimal chance of fallout. Some of the more sparkly shades felt more loosely-pressed while a few metallics were more emollient to the touch. They typically wore between eight and eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly (without primer).

Hex

Clionadh Hex Duochrome Eyeshadow ($5.25 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium lavender base that was ever-so-slightly warm-toned to my eye paired with pink-to-gold shifting shimmer. It had a metallic finish that was shiny and smooth. The eyeshadow felt lightly creamy, dense but not too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It had rich color coverage that lasted well for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly.

Elixir

Clionadh Elixir Duochrome Eyeshadow ($5.25 for 0.06 oz.) is a faded, medium bluish-teal base with contrasting green-to-gold shifting shimmer paired with a metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage–the shimmer gave it the effect of full opacity in practice, but the actual base seemed slightly translucent.

The consistency was soft, more loosely-pressed in the pan compared to most of the shades in the range, but it wasn’t overly fragile, so it wasn’t prone to fallout. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
