Like most beauty junkies, I always look forward to trying different eyeshadow formulas out. From the moment I tried Viseart matte shadows out… I was flabbergasted. Viseart is a French brand. Their shadows are created in Paris, there they are hand-milled into perfection. Because of the price I won’t say that everyone should just run out and buy Viseart Palettes but I am going to tell you why I bought them, and why I think some people may want to consider putting the investment into these shadows.
Why I Purchased The Viseart 01 Neutral Matte Palette
At the time that I made my Viseart purchase I didn’t have too many fully matte eyeshadow palettes in my collection. I’m also the type of person that uses matte shadows for every eye look that I do. I like creating depth and shadows by using a variety of matte shades. This palette has all the shades I wanted in incredible quality eyeshadows. I also bought these shadows out of curiosity, I wanted to see if they were really as great as all of the beauty gurus were saying. Which they weren’t kidding one bit!
You May Want To Buy These If….
First off the price point of one Viseart Palette is $80, which is a lot to spend at once for one palette. However, you get a lot of product and the quality is above pretty much everything I have tried. If you are like me, and you use matte shadows every single day, and you are looking for a great matte palette to use in conjunction with other palettes, for your shimmery/metallic shades, this would be a great purchase.
If you are a makeup artist and you are looking for a small convenient matte palette to use on clients that won’t take up much room in your kit, this would be a fantastic purchase. Not to mention if you are a makeup artist, this palette will make blending out shadows on a client faster, and probably a lot easier.
In my opinion, anyone that can afford this palette without it breaking the bank, and is curious about it…Should probably check it out. 🙂
Texture / Formula
Buttery doesn’t even describe this formula well enough. Just one dip of a finger gives the most pigmented swatch imaginable and pigmentation doesn’t compromise the ability to blend these shadows out. Viseart shadows can easily be blended together to make even more shades than what is in the palette. With this formulation the possibilities are absolutely endless.
Forgive me if my swatching skills aren’t up to par yet! 😛 Boy these shadows pack a punch of pigment. My favorite black happens to be in this palette as well. You can blend it out to just get the smokiest effect, or you can have it be the most pigmented blackest black ever.
I know a lot of people sway away from this palette simply because of the packaging. Yes it is a simple black and clear plastic palette, but it is small, compact, and fits perfectly in the palm of the hand. Viseart designed it this way so it would be perfect for professional makeup artists. Plus the quality speaks for itself so the packaging really doesn’t matter to me.
If the packaging makes you iffy about purchasing this palette though, it may be worth passing up because of the price point, being happy with your purchase is important after all. 🙂
I’m in love with both Viseart palettes that I own (another blog post for the other one I own is coming up) but I will admit they don’t get enough attention from me. I plan on using them more in the future, especially when I start doing makeup on friends and family for future blog posts! 😉
If you are interested in picking this palette up you can purchase it on Sephora here.
Hope everyone out there is doing well, and I am sorry for being a bit MIA last week. I’ve been crazy busy and I am still learning to juggle everyday life with blogging. It’s so good to be writing and posting though! 🙂
