Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in 03 Bridal Satin

on
Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Over the last year or so, independent French makeup company Viseart has exploded all over the North American cosmetics scene. They've been around for years and are a favourite of professional makeup artists in French TV and film, but weren't widely available on this side of the world until Sephora started carrying them as an online exclusive brand (Viseart still doesn't have a website of their own). Though they make a lot of different products, Viseart is most known for their eyeshadow palettes, which are described as "reliable film-tested professional products, a staple in every artist's kit, and... the workhorse of all professional artists. These palettes have a dynamic cult following throughout all levels of artistry. Manufactured in France, Viseart's proprietary formula is created in small tightly-controlled batches to maintain pigment quality, powder integrity, and consistency. Viseart is the 'secret sauce' for top Hollywood makeup artists, as well as makeup artist enthusiasts of all genres." 


Viseart currently makes seven colour waves in their eyeshadow palettes. The 03 Bridal Satin palette contains 12 shades and are described as "satin-textured shadows for smooth and even application. They photograph beautifully and are ideal for adding light and accentuating dimension." Viseart products are not tested on animals, contain organic ingredients, and are made without petroleum, parabens, silicones, butylene glycol or propylene glycol, phthalates, or artificial dyes. Each palette is housed in a rectangular clear-lidded plastic case, contains a total of 24 grams of product, and retails for $100 CAD.

It comes to no surprise that Viseart would make stellar shimmery shadows if their mattes perform so phenomenally, as it's always easier to create great frosted shades than matte shades. All 12 shades here are incredibly soft and buttery in texture, have spectacular pigmentation and colour pay-off, and are extremely blendable with no powdery kick up or fall-out. They adhere beautifully and are long-wearing without any primer (over eight hours without creasing or fading in my experience). The colours (which range from light to dark and cool to warm) are extremely versatile for all skintones to create all looks from natural to dramatic, and although this palette was designed for brides in mind, these shades will work for all occasions. Keep in mind, however, that all 12 shades in the Bridal Satin palette have frosted finishes, so you may want to pair it with matte shades to create more dimension (blending too many shimmery shades together results in muddiness). The packaging is simple and very no-nonsense — these palettes were designed for makeup artists and are made for frequent use and are meant to be functional rather than admired — and the price, though seemingly expensive at first, ends up being cheaper than MAC and just slightly more than Urban Decay and Too Faced.

  1. Orange Topaz *__* This one is probably less practical for me than a mattes nude palette (although the one you reviewed is too warm imo), but SO PRETTY. The one I actually had an interest in was 05 - do you have that one, too? :D

    1. I would say the Neutral Matte palette is neutral-warm as a whole, so if you veer more towards cool tones, you won't appreciate it as much. I find warm neutrals to be more wearable across skintones overall, so it's the one I reach for the most, even when I'm doing makeup on clients. That having been said, I usually mix Neutral Matte with other palettes to get different looks and tones rather than using it strictly alone.

      And yes, my review for 05 Sultry Muse just went up. ;) I think you'll end up getting more use out of that one than 03 Bridal Satin, but they are both gorgeous!
