Nuance

Viseart Nuance Theory Palette ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six eyeshadows in warm, shimmery variations. Five of the six eyeshadows were decent to nice, but one was a real miss–firmer but drier, where the eyeshadow flaked off and was a total mess to use on the lid, even with primer. I wish all six eyeshadows had performed exceptionally well, but the palette left me a little disappointed, given how stellar Viseart eyeshadows usually are.

Set Sail

Tarte Set Sail Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium, rosy plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture seemed slightly thinner and not quite as emollient as other shades, so I felt like it emphasized the texture of my lips a bit, though it was still comfortable to wear and felt lightly hydrating over time. It had full color coverage in a single swipe, and the lipstick applied evenly across the lips. On me, this lipstick wore well for five and a half hours.

The formula is supposed to be “long-wearing,” “full coverage,” and hydrating. The consistency has an incredibly smooth, creamy feel to it and has enough substance and thickness to it that it adheres well to the lips and usually doesn’t pull into lip lines. I felt like the formula felt slightly more emollient initially and “dried” a bit to more of a satin-to-cream finish after a few minutes (but not a true dry down, as it wasn’t transfer-resistant!). The majority of shades were very pigmented, easy to apply, comfortable to wear with light to moderate hydration over time, and lasted between four and seven hours on me. A few of the lightest and darkest shades weren’t as pigmented or were less flattering on the lips compared to more of the medium shades. There did not seem to be any added fragrance to it (smelled slightly waxy), and I didn’t notice any taste.

Viseart Enamored Theory Cheek Palette ($45.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes a highlighter, blush, and bronzer. Per the description, the bronzer is actually listed as “sheer bronzer,” which is good, given it was quite sheer. For reference, the blush formula is also a “sheer to fuller coverage” product–sheer but buildable. I have found that Viseart’s more matte/satin cheek powders apply a lot better than they look on my arm. Ultimately, they apply better in thinner, more gradual layers than applied more heavily and then blended out. If you aren’t a fan of sheerer blushes and bronzers, I don’t think that the Viseart formula is ideal for you, even though they are certainly buildable.
