I’ve recently really got into neutral eye looks; maybe because it’s just easier to apply and is great for work. Thus I have acquired (as you will see) a number of neutral eyeshadow palettes!
The thing about Japanese palettes is that they are always shimmery and slightly sheer. It’s nice to have some mattes and some bolds in a palette especially when you have a whopping 5 colours to choose from.
I purchased Visee’s newest collection, Meets Blondy (I dunno so don’t ask)….
Visee Palettes – and I keep buying them – don’t quite do it for me. They look really amazing sometimes but tend to be quite meh when swatched.
There are 3 options with this Limited Edition Collection – I chose N-9 Classical Bitter Chocolate although it’s the warmest one from the three:
Absolutely love the dotty case.
This eyeshadow comes in big cardboard packaging which Japanese shadows usually don’t. Inside the packaging is very typical of Visee, lightweight but nice plastic, cute design, colours in a spiral shape:
This is a very pretty palette full of warm peach and beige tones. It suits my current mood and what I am looking for but is it a must have palette? No. Is it what I expected? Yeah!
The shade on the top right hand side is a cream – it looks like a shimmery highlighter when applied. The rest are soft powder shadows and are very very very similar to each other. You probably guessed this when purchasing anyway, but don’t expect anything spectacularly exciting with this palette – it won’t happen.
I find myself using the base, the mid peach, then the darker brown the most. The other colours are so neutral that they don’t really scream anything to me:
I guess it’s almost like a mini Naked palette?!
I like this set but I wouldn’t by it again and I wouldn’t say it’s really that essential!
I paid about £14 for this from adambeauty.com.
What do you think of these super neutral palettes?
