Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette

Viseart Rose/Coral (02) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. Each palette is divided into two families and is “scaled into three levels of cheek color, ideal for the fairest to deep skin tones.” The powder blush formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” In general, the blush applied better with a light-to-moderately dense brush, light hand, and built-up in layers rather than immediately packed into place. The texture was smooth but dusty, sometimes powdery, and kicked up excess in the pan, so with some of the richer shades, it was easy to over-apply. The formula played better with my skin when it was normal, whereas drier areas had some trouble with the product adhering to the skin for some shades but not all (if you normally wear a cream or liquid base, you should be good to go). The majority of the blushes in the palettes are mostly matte, and they look very smooth on the skin–they actually seemed to hide texture and pores, which was interesting. Most of the shades lasted at least eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin with some lasting as long as nine and a half hours.
