Omg, I don’t think I’ve been this excited about an eyeshadow formula in a LONG time. Viseart is a professional French brand that’s not widely available here, so I’ve never had a chance to try them out or swatch them. I’d heard good things about them, but I didn’t want to shell out $80 for a palette, not knowing first-hand.
Fortunately, Sephora got some new $45 six-pan palettes in! Despite the fact that I’m kind of mad at Sephora right now (see this post), they have a great return policy, so I decided to order one. There are three different Viseart Theory palettes: Theory I Cashmere, Theory II Minx, and Theory III Chroma. Cashmere is neutral, Minx leans toward warmth, and Chroma has cooler shades. Each palette contains three mattes and three shimmers, and the pans are removable. I got the Chroma because it’s the shade group that I have the least of already.
I usually don’t wear many matte shadows, except for contouring my eyelids or creating dimension, because they just don’t seem to blend as well as shimmers. That was NOT the case with the Viseart mattes. OMG, these blend like an absolute DREAM. Now, they aren’t the most pigmented shadows I’ve used, but they are meant to be buildable, so they are more versatile. But, I swear I’ve never used any shadows that blend like these. Even Jerry grabbed a brush and swatched them and he was like, “Wow...”
I had to take photos in different types of light, the colors have so much depth that they look different according to the angle. SO impressive! If you click on the photos to zoom in, you can get a better idea of how they look.
My only gripe is that the packaging is the paper board stuff, kind of like Urban Decay’s Naked One, minus the fuzzy stuff. But, since it’s bi-fold, it will actually stand up like a little easy. It also has a magnetic closure, and a plastic cover to keep fallout from getting all over inside your bag. Overall, these shadows are so fracking amazing. I wish a box of every single palette they make would fall out of the sky and land on my doorstep!
Viseart Theory palettes retail for $45.00 each and are available at Sephora.
