Today I am sharing with you all a purchase which I am super excited about. As you all are aware of my love for doing colorful eye makeup, I found an item which stole my heart the moment I laid eyes on it. The French brand, Viseart, is a professional makeup brand from France and their palettes are highly coveted due to their incredible formula and high quality performance. They are sold at many retailers including Sephora. This review will be on the Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in the variant “Dark Matte”
A coveted professional eye shadow palette that can be used for shading, highlighting, and defining eyes, brows, and the contours of the face.
What it does:
Get professional quality eye looks with these versatile 12-shade palettes. Viseart’s coveted, bestselling palettes are reliable film-tested professional products, a staple in every artist’s kit, and they’re the work horse of all professional artists. These palettes have a dynamic cult following throughout all levels of artistry. Manufactured in France, Viseart’s proprietary formula is created in small tightly-controlled batches to maintain pigment quality, powder integrity, and consistency. Viseart is the “secret sauce” for top Hollywood makeup artists, as well as makeup artist enthusiasts of all genres.
$80. But I got it during the Sephora sale so I paid less than that.
My Experience with Viseart 04 Dark Matte Eyeshadow Palette:
The packaging of this palette is very simple, no fuss. There is nothing fancy about it which would make you wonder why the price is even higher than most luxury brands, but once you use the palette you will know that the price is so worth it. The lid is clear and closes securely. It is quite sturdy. Inside you can see an array of 12 shades. For the price of $80 for 12 shades makes each eyeshadow single cost a little less than $7. The palette is also very travel friendly.
Texture & Pigmentation:
These eyeshadows have beautiful texture. They are super smooth and rich. They are all mattes. They are a bit powdery and kick up powder when you dip your brush in, but they fall out considerably lesser than for example Lorac Pro shadows. It still best to tap off the excess before your apply these.
These shadows blend like a dream. They apply with buildable pigmentation which means you can lightly diffuse them for a softer look in the crease or create smooth transitions or build them in layers to achieve opaque pigmentation. The palette overall is pretty consistent in quality. All the shadows have the same high quality feel and none of them apply streaky or patchy.
Coming to why I am so head over heels in love with this palette – the colors, the gorgeous, breathtaking colors. I love colorful eyeshadows and good quality matte “colorful” eyeshadows are quite difficult to find which is exactly what this palette offers. There is a wide spectrum of colors all across the board all in this one palette. All these colors have warm undertones. Since these colors are all matte, you can use them on their own to create all matte look or pair them with a shimmery shade for a night time look.
There are no particular shade names, so I am just going to describe the colors:
Row 1 (L-R)
1. A milk chocolate brown
2. A dark chocolate brown
3. Reddish burgundy
4. Warm reddish copper
Row 2 (L-R)
5. Eggplant purple
6. A light orchid purple
7. Warm yellow based orange
8. Warm orange based red
Row 3 (L-R)
9. Deep navy blue
10. Deep teal
11. Deep forest green
12. Khaki green
Though these eyeshadows are quite pigmented and have good staying power on their own, it is best to pair them with a primer or base for a boost in performance. A base helps the shadows to adhere better and show up true to color as in the pan and it improves the staying power also. They stay on my primed eyelids for 6-7 hours without creasing or fading.
I cannot rave enough about this palette. If you are a color lover for your eyes, you cannot skip this palette. Viseart has 7 variant of their eye shadow palette (which includes an all matte neutral and a bright editorial palette which I have my eye on). I am so highly impressed that I plan to collect them all. If you can get your hands on them in the upcoming annual 20% Sephora sale, I highly recommend you grab them. I have used this palette nonstop ever since I got it and attaching just few of the looks I created using this palette.
