With so many ‘neutral’ eyeshadow palettes on the market for an array of budgets (Urban Decay’s Naked palettes of course, then at the other end of the scale, MUA’s ‘Undressed Palette’, it’s hard to imagine that we need MOAR nude themed eyeshadow palettes. But here I am with another one, a longstanding one actually which has been around for some time to those in the know, and is a really really really exquisite palette even if it may not appear so at first.
The palette in question is by Viseart!
Viseart is a French beauty brand particularly focused on the professional market, but of course still open to make up lovers. There are a selection of make up palettes from the brand, covering metallics, brights, smokey etc. I have 01 Neutral Matte which is quite a popular choice with it being a palette everyone can wear.
Since this palette is matte is has a multitude of uses such as filling in the brows, shading and natural highlighting. The colours can be used with water to use as say, an eyeliner. Here are the colours which start from a matte soft white, light cream, through to beiges, warm browns, cool browns, taupe, chocolate grey and a black.
Now, compared to other ‘nude’ palettes on the market, it might be easy to see this one as a tad dull because the shades don’t necessarily look crazy exciting plus there are no shimmers/metallics/glitters. But since using this palette I’ve come to realise that it is a truly ‘naked’ palette, it’s very versatile, very useful and wearable and flattering. Certainly when I used this palette I felt like I had quite an elegant eye one – god knows I love slapping on the glitter – but with this combination I felt like I couldn’t go too wrong or end up with an eye look that was too strong. I do find mattes quite flattering on my eye shape which has a lot of ‘area’ to shade in.
Swatches – very smooth texture and pigmented even for mattes;
I used a mixture of colours – warm brown in my crease, white under my brow, greys and taupes on my lid to do an everyday look. As a ‘work face’ palette, this one is pretty spot on more so than the other neutral-y palettes I have because I can’t go overboard with a bit of glitter here, a bit of glitter there – BOOM – DISCO BALL.
Packaging wise, this looks more like a Pro Make Up Artist product – the casing is sturdy and simple, the lid is clear so you can see what you’ve got.
Also I found these colours long wearing, without primer I still had eyeshadow on at the end of a very long day;
Verdict: A real hit! Good for true neutral lovers. I definitely want more of their palettes.
