I was saving up my pennies for a big, big Mary Quant eyeshadow haul when what appears on adambeauty.com?
Visee’s summer palettes – so pretty! I can usually pass up on Visee as I find their eyeshadow deceptively good looking but poor to use. However these spoke to me. The packaging is pretty. I like the evenly sized squares:
These are beautifully presented although quite lightweight. Sometimes when I have a great palette like this, I wonder why I bother with more expensive alternatives. Let’s look closer….
Here are the palettes – there is a pretty lace print over the top:
Typical of Japanese palettes, the colours here are shimmery- but beautifully shimmer! Not TOO metallic. Not TOO sheer. Just right in terms of pigment an shimmer. Even the glitter colour is well though out. I had little fall out over the day, which was surprising – I get the worst glitter face with Japanese eyeshadows.
Here is a swatch of the blue palette- if you like blues, it’s a really pretty palette to own – the colours are lovely, especially the deep navy:
Visee BR-2 is lovely too – it’s a very warm gold-orange combination. There is also a cooler palette with a soft pink (BR-1). I wanted something a bit different so I got this one – the orange-gold is lovely if you are in to warm colours, it’s wearable yet bold at the same time.
The texture of these eyeshadows are not ‘creamy’ although they are soft. If you press a little too hard it will crumble. Although it’s not super soft to touch you still get the pigment…interesting texture.
