Swatches Of 3 Birthstone Saga Eyeshadows From 

Clionadh Cosmetics

clionadh cosmetics birthstone saga eyeshadow review

Hey all, good day and welcome back! Today I have swatches of 3 eye shadows by the Canadian brand Clionadh Cosmetics from their Birthstone Saga series. This collection features eyeshadows inspired by birth months, zodiac signs and their corresponding gemstones. Each month they'll be releasing a new permanent eyeshadow, which will be part of the Birthstone Saga.

I recently attended a local nail polish get together, something a bunch of us local girls do every so often. The 2 sister's (Maggie and Leigh) who own Clionadh Cosmetics attended and I had the chance to purchase 3 of their eyeshadows in person. I held off on using them because I wanted to wait until I got photo's first - beauty blogger problems at it's finest lol. 

Let's get onto the swatches!

Garnet - January

Garnet is a gorgeous jewel-toned eyeshadow with a vampy burgundy base, red reflects and micro sparkle.

Final thoughts:

I love supporting small businesses and you'd be surprised by the high quality of products they offer. My makeup collection ranges from indie brands, drug store and high end - gotta love them all! I applied all the eyeshadows with my finger as I find it gives the best colour pay off. I found them to be rich and creamy, aside from Alexandrite - I found it took a bit more building up in comparison to the other two. I don't say that as a negative, as I don't mind having to build an eyeshadow up. I'm incredibly impressed with the colour pay off! The pan size for these shadows aren't average as they size in at 33mm - much larger versus a standard sized pan. As you can see by the photo's, they come in singles and because the pans are magnetic, you can easily transfer them into a magnetic pallet. These eyeshadows retail for $12 CAD and are currently on sale for $9.60 CAD. I'm not sure how long the sale will last for, but I suggest grabbing some while they are on sale!
