I’m slowly working my way through the goodies I featured in my Christmas Haul. Next up, the much coveted and beloved Viseart Palette! Based on what I’d heard, I knew I would fall hard. Every person, beauty blogger and vlogger that I’ve heard mention the Viseart eye shadows has spoken with the same degree of unbridled affection for the brand’s formula and performance. Truth be told, it was the Neutral Matte Palette that I was after (which has gained a reputation for being the best matte shadows on this green earth), but I was just as happy to receive the Viseart Sultry Muse Palette.
As lore would have it, these palettes, “have a dynamic cult following throughout all levels of artistry”. They are manufactured in France in “small tightly controlled batches to maintain pigment quality, powder integrity, and consistency”. Viseart, apparently, is the “secret sauce” for top Hollywood makeup artists.
The Sultry Muse Palette is described as combination “opulent hues” of satin, shimmer and metallic finishes designed to create “chic, elegant or fashion forward makeup”. The palette (# 05) includes shades of gold, copper, amber, quartz, white crystal, black smoke, rose gold, bronze, platinum and espresso (Sephora names them as Yves, Camille, Kifu, Gitte, Tym, Jori, CIndi, Chantille, Chloé, Melonié, Diane, and Ceska shades). Although they are most likely to be used as eyeshadows, they are designed as multipurpose products which can also be used for contouring and highlighting the face.
I drank the punch and I’m completely infatuated. I thought I knew what quality shadows were…I mean, don’t get me wrong, there are many awesome, high performing eye shadows from different brands that I use and love. But these Viseart shadows are on another level. Like Damn! Hehe. Yes, they are soft, buttery and smooth to the touch. But the real wow moment comes when the shadow makes contact with your eye lid.
You know the saying…blend, blend, blend. Well, with these shadows, it’s more like blend. Once swipe across the crease and it was like holy pigment and flawlessness. They require the least amount of effort of any powdered product I’ve ever used. Like others have said, they seem to blend themselves. As they are ultra creamy you will get a little kick up when you dip your brush in. But let’s be clear, there is absolutely no fall out when applying to the eyes. I shutter to think what awaits me when I finally own the Neutral Matte palette (it will will be mine hahaha!). Here are some swatches (which don’t come close to doing them justice). One swipe. Yes. One. Dry. No Malarkey.
And if that isn’t enough, to further demonstrate their loveliness, here are some of the shadows on the eyes. Normally, I wouldn’t necessarily wear these combinations exactly as shown and definitely place something matte in the crease, but I wanted the focus to be on the Viseart shadows only.
