Clionadh Dragon Fruit Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


Dragon Fruit

Clionadh Tropico Fruitlighter ($60.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a fun, complementary palette full of shimmer and sparkle in across shades of pink, peach, and berry with pop of green and purple. The palette will be more versatile for someone who plans to use this with other palettes/products they own as it is not the most versatile as a standalone palette (one, because they are all quite shimmery, and two, there is more overlap between color families).

Bubbles

Bubbles is a light and bright, ultra-shiny multichrome that has a subtly warm-toned, champagne gold dominant angle that shifted to warmer, peachy gold to bright green to greenish-aqua to cool lavender. It is supposed to have a multichromatic shift from platinum to peach to gold to lime to turquoise. The texture was soft, slightly more loosely-pressed but held together well when pressed onto my lid with minimal fallout, though you may find that your application style requires a dampened brush and/or tackier primer. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

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.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.05 oz. – $120.00 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).

Dragontini

Dragontini has a brighter, medium-dark pink base that seemed slightly cooler in tone paired with multichrome shifting shimmer that shifted between gold, green-gold, and lavender. The eyeshadow had a smooth, more loosely-pressed feel to the touch, but it had good adhesion to bare skin and blended out well without losing its full opacity. It wore nicely for nine hours before fading a bit.

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!).

Infusion

Infusion is a light lavender with cooler undertones and flecks of gold, silver, and lavender sparkle throughout. It was called out as “sheer,” which it was. The consistency was soft, slightly drier and more prone to fallout so I’d recommend pressing/patting it onto the skin. It stayed on well for eight hours but had some fallout over time.

Hylocereus

Hylocereus is a darker, purplish-berry with a copper-red sheen that shifted subtly. It had a pearl-like finish that had less shimmer than is typical for Clionadh, though the texture was a bit denser and firmer so it took more effort to really diffuse the edges. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Sweetened

Sweetened is a vivid, darker fuchsia pink with cool undertones and lighter, more contrasting lavender pearl throughout. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but the texture was a bit firmer and thinner, which made it a little harder to diffuse evenly on bare skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Exotic

Exotic is a rich, deeper raspberry with subtle, cool undertones and a mix of lighter pink and deeper red shimmer that gave it a more pearl-like sheen. It was less intensely metallic compared to most of Clionadh’s eyeshadows but still quite shimmery. It had fully opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. This shade lasted well for nine hours before fading.

Prickly

Prickly is a rich, violet purple with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a denser, firmer texture that packed lots of pigment and adhered evenly but did not blend out as well as other shades–I could soften the edge enough for a more opaque product but trying to use it in the crease (like a matte) and needing to really diffuse it resulted in some patchiness. It wore well for eight and a half hours before creasing.

Dragonfly

Dragonfly is a light green with subtle, warm undertones and cooler shimmer, so it looked much cooler-toned compared to Cataceae in the pan. It had a shiny, metallic finish, but it seemed to be a little more powdery and prone to fading when applied to bare skin. The intensity looked muted in practice, so this shade ended up looking a lot more like Cataceae on my lid and didn’t have the contrast I expected between the two. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
