Everybody, a moment please. I think I just found the best matte, neutral eyeshadow palette. Yes, I think the search is over. It’s totally amazing. I can’t believe something like this does not get as much rave as the other popular brands who have launched neutral palettes.
For so long, I had put up with matte eyeshadows from several palettes I own. Some are actually decent performers but the others were in need of a helping hand, a.k.a an eyeshadow primer. Then I came across Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in Neutral Basic.
You may not have heard of the brand but they are worth the look. Make up artists from around the globe have them in their kit. Who was I to think twice?
This palette is the professionals choice, with a cult following. It is our top selling palette in perfect neutrals. This palettes is the makeup artist’s best friend, due it it’s multitasking use for brows, eyes, and contours of any kind. Palette 1 is our neutral palette including beige, taupe, nude, black, grey, brick and brown. For example: These shades can also be used for highlighting and shading cheekbones, as well as for filling in brows, or use darker shades on the lash line as a soft eyeliner. You can create a natural or dramatic look from just one palette. This can also be used with water to create a thin line. Lastly, this neutral palette is used on hair to fill in roots for all hair colors, and to create a more dramatic aging greying look. This palette is the number one palette used on sets in Hollywood.
Not tested on animals. No parabens, silicon, or mineral oils.
Viseart Eyeshadow Palettes come in a simple plastic packaging — black pan with a clear, see-through cover. But don’t be deceived. As the popular saying goes, “Don’t judge the book by its cover.” Err, or in this case, don’t judge the palette by its plastic packaging. You’d be blown away by the quality of the shadows. I was.
You know how it’s common sense when putting on makeup to actually do your eyes first followed by your face so any kind of eyeshadow fallout can get covered easily or else you risk ruining your foundation by mutliple specks of color and glitter — the horror of chalky eyeshadows, gasp! But not this baby. Let’s just say I’m a curious little kitten and like all other palettes I’ve experimented on, this one has to go through — ahem, careful evaluation. So what I actually did was, I put on my foundation and concealer first then my eye makeup.
All I can say is, “Fallout, what fallout?” It’s the beauty of this product. THERE WERE NONE. I did not have to reapply concealer under my eyes. Like I said, totally amazing. Hands down. Even when I was swatching them on my arm, I did not experience any fallout. And they are all crazy pigmented and easy to blend. All the shades are so soft and buttery. I wore them the first couple of times without any primer. They were still there after more than 10 hours of wear. No creasing and only minimal fading. It’s like Viseart kept in mind, when they were creating this, what an excellent, matte eyeshadow palette should be like. And they nailed it!
Contouring, highlighting my browbone and filling in my brows, it seems this palette can do those too. The two shades on the lower right look most natural as a contouring powder. Both have neutral and ashy tones to them to mimic a hollow created by cheekbones.
My Viseart palette and me? We’re going to have an amazing and beautiful relationship. I just know it. I don’t see any flaws with this palette, just pure perfection. They deserve a two thumbs up from me!
