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).
