Viseart Chroma Theory Palette

Viseart Chroma Theory Palette ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a subdued set of neutral tones with three matte and three metallic eyeshadows. The Theory palettes are housed in smooth cardboard that open up with a ribbon-esque pull-tab and reveal the six pans held in a plastic container. Each pan is 0.07 oz., which is the same size as the larger 12-pan Viseart palettes; the Theory palettes are slightly more expensive at $45 (compared to $80) , which works out to be $107.14/oz. for the Theory palette eyeshadows vs. $95.24/oz. for the 12-pan palette eyeshadows. The Theory palettes are more cohesive as all-in-one palettes as the finishes and tone vary more than the larger palettes (which were designed to be used with other palettes). The pans are removable and seem held in by magnet, but there are no labels on the bottom, so you might want to DIY labels. It’s a slightly warmer take on a smoky eye with more taupe-like grays than silver-like grays, but you have the very cool-toned white shade that can be used to lighten and give a cooler cast when mixed or layered with other shades.

Viseart manages to continue to impress with a formula that applies exceptionally well–long-wearing, pigmented, blendable, and just next to effortless to use.

Viseart Cashmere Theory Palette

Viseart Cashmere Theory Palette ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a subdued set of neutral tones with three matte and three metallic eyeshadows. The Theory palettes are housed in smooth cardboard that open up with a ribbon-esque pull-tab and reveal the six pans held in a plastic container. Each pan is 0.07 oz., which is the same size as the larger 12-pan Viseart palettes; the Theory palettes are slightly more expensive at $45 (compared to $80) , which works out to be $107.14/oz. for the Theory palette eyeshadows vs. $95.24/oz. for the 12-pan palette eyeshadows. The Theory palettes are more cohesive as all-in-one palettes as the finishes and tone vary more than the larger palettes (which were designed to be used with other palettes). The pans are removable and seem held in by magnet, but there are no labels on the bottom, so you might want to DIY labels. I quite enjoyed this palette, as it had good color payoff, long-wear, and was easy to apply and blend on bare skin. Worth noting, I think the mattes used in the Theory palettes are more semi-matte, so while they work and look mostly like mattes, they blend more readily and bind better (resulting in truer-to-pan payoff).

Kat Von D Smoke Shade + Light Quad

Kat Von D Smoke Shadow + Light Quad ($26.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains four shades designed to work together and are named to help guide application–Base, Define, Contour, and Highlight–though you can obviously go wherever your creativity takes you. If you couldn’t guess from the title, this is your traditional “smoky eye” pairing, though I think the more taupe-y gray gives it something more interesting than standard silver.

Sephora x Disney | Minnie’s World in Color Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora x Disney | Minnie’s World in Color Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes 20 eyeshadows ranging from neutrals to pops of color. The formula is described as “creamy” and “super pigmented.” Both the mirror and the eyeshadows pop out so that the packaging can be used as a clutch. There are some nice shades in the palette, but there are quite a few misses–particularly brighter pops of color with more satin to pearl finishes. The best shades tended to be very shimmery or metallic.
