Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft VS Alchemy eyeshadow in Elixir, Fog, Aqua Vitae, Clairvoyance, Crystalline, & Prophecy : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED
Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft VS Alchemy eyeshadow in Elixir, Fog, Aqua Vitae, Clairvoyance, Crystalline, & Prophecy.
The Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft VS Alchemy eyeshadow pans retail for $6.50CAN for 1.7g of product each. 

Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft VS Alchemy eyeshadow in Elixir, Fog, Aqua Vitae, Clairvoyance, Crystalline, & Prophecy.
Ingredients:
Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Tin Oxide, Iron Oxides, +/- Ultramarines, +/- Chromium Oxide Green, +/- Ferric Ferrocyanide, +/- Bismuth Oxychloride, +/- Manganese Violet, Zinc Stearate, Calcium Carbonate, Kaolin, Silica, Allantoin, Magnesium Stearate, Isopropyl Myristate, Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone, +/- Parfum
Product: 
These are intense shimmer finish using mica pigments to create these duo chrome eyeshadow. For duo-chrome pan/pressed eyeshadows these are excellent, the may not hit the full look of loose pigments applied wet to get that high shine glow but these are on that level of shine for sure.

Colour:
Elixir is a dusty silver with a pale gold shift.
Fog is a slate blue with an antique gold/bronze shift.
Aqua Vitae is a pale blue with a light gold shift.
Clairvoyance is a bright aqua with a bright lime green shift. Mermaids... I see mermaids. lol
Crystalline is a  cool tone lavender with an aqua shift.
Prophecy is a bright coral pink with a gold shift.

Wear: With a base/primer these do stay all day without any fading. On their own, they do fade evenly to a sheer wash in 6-7 hours with my semi-hooded lids.

Packaging: Basic magnetic pan house in a clamshell plastic pod. I haven't seen those since my Mineral Makeup days as I got away from Indie brands.

Daylight swatch: Elixir, Fog, Aqua Vitae, Clairvoyance, Crystalline, & Prophecy.
Flash swatch: Elixir, Fog, Aqua Vitae, Clairvoyance, Crystalline, & Prophecy.

Compare

Clionadh Cosmetics Elixir, Fog, Aqua Vitae, & Clairvoyance vs Yaby Cosmetics pp015 Sea Turtle, pp001 Midnight Blue, es093 Broccoli Heaven.
Daylight swatch: Elixir, Yaby pp015 Sea Turtle, Fog, Yaby pp001 Midnight Blue, Aqua Vitae, Yaby es093 Broccoli Heaven & Clairvoyance.
Flash swatch: Elixir, Yaby pp015 Sea Turtle, Fog, Yaby pp001 Midnight Blue, Aqua Vitae, Yaby es093 Broccoli Heaven & Clairvoyance.

Elixir and Yaby pp015 Sea Turtle is not the same shade but I thought I would compare as the gold shifts is very similar.
Fog, Yaby pp001 Midnight Blue and Aqua Vitae also share the same gold shift with very different blue base shades.

Yaby es093 Broccoli Heaven is a deep version of Clairvoyance with a dust aqua base and gold compared to the bright aqua and electric lime shift.

Verdict:
From what I can tell the Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft VS Alchemy eyeshadows are all duo-chrome... they are intense and swatches don't do the shift in colours justice!!! I find that duo-chromes are tod that celebrated outside of make industry brands like Inglot and MAC or independent brands like Clionadh Cosmetics. Urban Decay was one of the few commercial brands that do duo-chromes but mostly in their Limited edition palettes. Inglot and MAC do duo-chromes in loose pigment form to probably keep the shade integrity so these pans are way less expensive.

These eyeshadows look like pressed pigments with enough bonder in the base to stick to the skin. I'm very impressed by these. ;)
