Finally, after years of waiting, I bought myself a Viseart palette! I’ve been wanting one for so long, when I saw this new Viseart Eyeshadow & Eyebrow palette, I was doomed.
All across the makeup world, there is so much hype boasting the professional quality of these shadows that I can understand how some connoisseurs could be disappointed, expecting transcendence and more. Thru the years, since I’ve played with some impeccable eyeshadows, I wasn’t floored after my first applications. Don’t get me wrong, the formula is darn good, but this particular palette left me with mix feelings!
Read both descriptions of this palette below: it’s clear that the second (European) one defines it as Brow Palette (which I totally second!)
The Sephora version …

At Sephora Online Only : 80$US (100$CND)
♥ Viseart is a Cruelty Free brand!
♥ Great value: 8.33$CND per shadow (0.07 oz) for a total 0.84 oz of product (That’s a lot!!!)
For comparaison purposes :
Mac Eye Shadow “Pro Palette” Refill Pans are 8$CND for 0.04 oz
Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Shadow Singles are 16$CND for 0.059 oz
Urban Decay Eyeshadows are 22$CND for o.o5 oz
Make Up For Ever “Artist Shadow” Eyeshadows are 25$CND for 0.07 oz (300$ for 12)
*** Some brands offer more onces per shadows but at prices greater than 25$CND
The affordable option is Kat Von D’s “Shade + Light Eye Contour” palette, offering 0.60 oz for 55$CND (77$CND if it was the same 0.84 oz). A great palette but bulkier and less travel friendly !
♥ Probably one the most blendable formula I’ve ever tried (Very smooth & Buttery)
♥ These shadows are so pigmented, believe me, they stay put without creasing all day long! Try them on your arm for fun and see how long they last!!!
♥ The shades are way cooler than per se, the Neutral Mattes version. They gravitate more towards brow powder colors, so, they look more like Cool Neutrals.
♥ The packaging is really clean & minimalist (Great for travelling!)
♥ Almost no fallout nor powder kicking (two worst flaws in eyeshadow!)
♥ The brow waxes are good (nothing special) and all three shades are perfect for me (a fake blond). Girls with dark hair will not find them dark enough…
💣 The 3 specific brow products are waxes not to be confused with a pomade type product. Their big lack in pigmentation requires A LOT of applications to get the definition I want. After 6-7 dips per brow, I get a nice result but it sure needs a lot of product…
💣 The creamy products (waxes) are not individually covered; they stand right besides the powders. Not sure if that small flaw will influence makeup fanatics but, I surely prefer when they are protected.
Note: I’ve calculated that my palette is open at least 15 minutes per morning, how long do you think these waxes will last before drying on me???
💣 I tried but I just couldn’t achieve a normal makeup eye look using only this palette! I kept reaching for other palettes. Like I said, it’s geared towards eyebrows more than eyeshadows!
💣 When I used the powders on my brows, I find them way too intensely pigmented, I much prefer my Anastasia Beverly Hills Duo-Brow Powder (I like my eyebrows to look very natural!)
Building this review needed some hard work. Sure I had to do the swatches and all the images, but I just couldn’t pinpoint WHAT made this palette unique. It’s finally after intense research on the web that I found out that these powders are more formulated for brows compared to their normal eyeshadow formulations. With this in mind, do I find it to be a must have brow palette??? Not Really! It’s Good but at 100$, it’s easy to find a better value for money!
The slick and minimalist packaging looks sophisticated but still, uncovered cream pans besides powders are a mystery to me! Even if there is nearly no powder kick, it’s a no-no for me!
Honestly, I’m a little disappointed about this palette even though I loved the formula and the way it applies on my lids. At that price, I just didn’t get my money’s worth. However, with Sephora’s VIB sale right around the corner, I will keep my eyes open for Viseart Neutral Mattes or Cool Mattes (or both). I honestly suggest that you try to find a way to experiment with this palette before buying as it may have a lot of upsides but this product comes with some flaws as well. A lot of hype but for me, it falls short…
As always, this is my personal experience with this item. Feel free to disagree!
