It had buildable pigmentation that ranged from semi-opaque to opaque (two layers). It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

Formula Overview

-

The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be "pigment[ed]" with "smooth and even application" that is "long-lasting." The matte shades are typically semi-opaque to opaque but buildable with soft, velvety textures that can sometimes be a little powdery or slightly firm, depending on the shade. I find that the mattes are often best suited to someone who likes control over pigmentation and may prefer to build up color; they regularly perform better in practice than just swatched on the arm as well.

The shimmer shades range from satin to metallic, and the more metallic shades tend to feel creamier to the touch, while the satin ones have a fine pearl to them that looks almost melted on the lid once blended out. Both the mattes and shimmers are blendable and easy to work with. Most of Viseart's eyeshadows wear between seven and nine hours on me.

Azure (Bright Editorial #12)

Viseart Azure (Bright Editorial #12) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep, slightly muted blue with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, slightly drier texture that was a bit dusty in the pan, but it applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. It was one of those mattes that performed better in practice than swatched on my arm. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Sky (Cool Mattes 2 #7)

Viseart Sky (Cool Mattes 2 #7) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a pale, muted blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque to opaque, and it seemed to be a bit more pigmented when I worked with it on my eye than when swatched on my arm. The consistency was soft to the touch but somewhat powdery and had a touch of fallout during application. It lasted well for eight hours before there was visible fading.

Bougainvillea (Grande Pro (Vol. 1) #20)

Viseart Bougainvillea (Grande Pro (Vol. 1) #20) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque to opaque (two layers) with a slightly drier, firmer consistency, but it was actually softer and more blendable than the version I encountered in the GPV1 palette. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Calypso (GPV2 #15)

Viseart Calypso (Grande Pro (Vol. 2) #15) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, pinky plum with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth, blendable consistency that wasn’t too firmly nor too loosely pressed in the pan. It was one of the best Viseart eyeshadows released in the GPV2 palette, and it remained true in the single pan version! It wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading a bit.

Chocolate

Viseart Chocolate Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, chocolaty brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. There have been a few releases of this, and I think they perform more similarly in practice but swatch differently. The single version felt slightly dusty and sheered out a bit initially, but it built up well and blended out without difficulty (whereas some of the palette versions have adhered better to my arm in addition to performing well on my eye). It lasted well for eight and a half hours before I noticed fading.

Mocha (Warm Mattes #11)

Viseart Mocha (Warm Mattes #11) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium brown with muted, subtly warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from a little over medium to mostly opaque on my skin, and it didn’t adhere as well to bare skin as the shade in my Warm Mattes palette. The eyeshadow was easy to work with, though, as the product built up well without fallout, blended out nicely, and stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Lumiere

Colour Pop Lumiere Lippie Stix ($6.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a medium-dark mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It had rich pigmentation in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The consistency was lightweight, lightly creamy with a touch of tackiness, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but there was a touch of product that sat in my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. This shade stayed on nicely for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

The cream blush had a lightweight, thin consistency that had some slip but didn’t feel too wet or tacky, so it was easy to work with on bare skin or patted on top of foundation. It applied evenly and blended out without much effort, and I tend to find shades in this color family can sometimes look like it’s sitting my pores, so I was impressed by how nice this appeared even over bare skin. It stayed on nicely for nine hours before showing visible fading.

The formula is supposed to "blend effortlessly" with a "natural, skin-like finish" that can be layered or applied on bare skin. The brand recommends applyling directly from the tube for heavier coverage and using a brush to pick up product for less coverage, though the coverage "easily builds colour to your heart's desire." They dry down to a semi-set finish--lightly dewy, definitely "natural, skin-like" in appearance, but not overly tacky or really wet-looking. I haven't found that they migrate or move around much, so the formula is still longer-wearing at seven to nine hours with minimal movement. They have applied well and worn well over foundation thus far, too. They are not transfer-proof but are transfer-resistant; they won't smear around with an inadvertent touch but aren't fully locked down.

The pigmentation varied a bit from shade to shade, but most shades were semi-opaque to fully opaque when applied directly from the tube in one "swipe" motion, though I think mimicking this on cheeks isn't quite as easily done as compared to my arm. I preferred picking up product on my fingertip, patting on the apple of my cheek and diffusing upward and outward, then using a clean fingertip to diffuse and soften the edges as needed. I appreciated that even the deeper hues didn't seem to "sink" into my pores and were as easy to apply and blend out as very light, more my-skin-but-better (literally, my skin!) hues. I would describe the formula was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque coverage possible, but there's enough slip in the formula that it starts to sheer out noticeably even when applied more heavily.

The consistency was lightly emollient, lightweight, and thin with good spreadability and movement; it didn't lift up base products but still worked well over bare skin. I didn't experience it lifting up or creating patchiness over time on top of foundation, even when I set the foundation initially, but I would recommend (same as I would for most cream-based cheek formulas!) to pair with a less-matte foundation for optimal results (the dewy finish plays well with a more skin-like base).

Oh, the caps have the names of the products, but the rest of the tube doesn't, so if you have more than one open, take care in getting the right lid back on!

Ivoire

Viseart Ivoire Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. The color applied evenly to bare skin and had good adhesion without primer. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

-

The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be "pigment[ed]" with "smooth and even application" that is "long-lasting." The matte shades are typically semi-opaque to opaque but buildable with soft, velvety textures that can sometimes be a little powdery or slightly firm, depending on the shade. I find that the mattes are often best suited to someone who likes control over pigmentation and may prefer to build up color; they regularly perform better in practice than just swatched on the arm as well.

The shimmer shades range from satin to metallic, and the more metallic shades tend to feel creamier to the touch, while the satin ones have a fine pearl to them that looks almost melted on the lid once blended out. Both the mattes and shimmers are blendable and easy to work with. Most of Viseart's eyeshadows wear between seven and nine hours on me.

Croissant (Warm Mattes #2)

Viseart Croissant (Warm Mattes #2) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, muted yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in one layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color. The texture was soft without being too powdery or too firmly pressed in the pan, and it applied better in practice than it may have appeared in the swatch. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

Starlight (GPV2 #2)

Viseart Starlight (Grande Pro (Vol. 2) #2) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, dirty gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had more medium, buildable pigmentation (I’d recommend using it with a wet brush for highest coverage), which was as described by the brand for this particular finish (“Crystalline”). The consistency was smooth to the touch, a little less firmly pressed than some of the brand’s matte eyeshadows, but it blended out well and those who like sparkly, washes of color will enjoy it in particular. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Beurre (Warm Mattes #1)

Viseart Beurre (Warm Mattes #1) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, pale yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from medium to semi-opaque with light powderiness, though it was blendable and sat well on bare skin (didn’t appear dry). The texture was soft to the touch but needed a light tap to get rid of the excess, and there was some excess product that kicked up in the pan. It lasted well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading. It was a bit sheerer than the palette version I have from before.

Olive (Dark Matte #12)

Viseart Olive (Dark Mattes #12) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark olive green with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, while the consistency was soft, a little powdery in the pan, but blendable and not prone to sheering out or having fallout during application. It stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.

Alien (GPV2 #13)

Viseart Alien (Grande Pro (Vol. 2) #13) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, chartreuse green with warm, golden undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even layer of product. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Colour Pop Roosevelt Blush Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It wasn’t quite as dewy in its finish compared to most shades in the range, but it still had a subtle luminosity that was more than matte. The texture was lightweight, emollient without being tacky, and spreadable, which made for easy blending and application that worked just as well over bare skin as it did atop foundation. It had opaque color coverage when applied directly from the tube, but if sheerer or more buildable application is preferred, using fingertips or brushes did the trick. The color lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed fading/subtle movement of the product on my skin.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.33 oz. - $24.24 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to "blend effortlessly" with a "natural, skin-like finish" that can be layered or applied on bare skin. The brand recommends applyling directly from the tube for heavier coverage and using a brush to pick up product for less coverage, though the coverage "easily builds colour to your heart's desire." They dry down to a semi-set finish--lightly dewy, definitely "natural, skin-like" in appearance, but not overly tacky or really wet-looking. I haven't found that they migrate or move around much, so the formula is still longer-wearing at seven to nine hours with minimal movement. They have applied well and worn well over foundation thus far, too. They are not transfer-proof but are transfer-resistant; they won't smear around with an inadvertent touch but aren't fully locked down.

The pigmentation varied a bit from shade to shade, but most shades were semi-opaque to fully opaque when applied directly from the tube in one "swipe" motion, though I think mimicking this on cheeks isn't quite as easily done as compared to my arm. I preferred picking up product on my fingertip, patting on the apple of my cheek and diffusing upward and outward, then using a clean fingertip to diffuse and soften the edges as needed. I appreciated that even the deeper hues didn't seem to "sink" into my pores and were as easy to apply and blend out as very light, more my-skin-but-better (literally, my skin!) hues. I would describe the formula was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque coverage possible, but there's enough slip in the formula that it starts to sheer out noticeably even when applied more heavily.

The consistency was lightly emollient, lightweight, and thin with good spreadability and movement; it didn't lift up base products but still worked well over bare skin. I didn't experience it lifting up or creating patchiness over time on top of foundation, even when I set the foundation initially, but I would recommend (same as I would for most cream-based cheek formulas!) to pair with a less-matte foundation for optimal results (the dewy finish plays well with a more skin-like base).

Oh, the caps have the names of the products, but the rest of the tube doesn't, so if you have more than one open, take care in getting the right lid back on!

You can start to preview some of offerings from Nordstrom’s upcoming Anniversary Sale, (here’s the catalog, too, which seemed to be rather light this year!), and I’ve pulled most of the ones revealed below.  Early access to the sale begins July 12th at 12:30PM EST (you must be a cardholder), and then the sale opens to everyone July 19th and ends August 4th.  If you’re unfamiliar with the Anniversary Sale, it’s an event where new products are on sale ahead of the fall season, and many brands create exclusive product offerings for the sale.  In beauty, this often means bundling products together or putting together exclusive sets (like a lipstick set) or palette (MAC usually has quite the number of offerings).

There are also “Glam-Up Days,” which are events in-store that range from gift with purchases to larger sampling programs (like “Scent Sunday” designed to help find a new scent).  I’ll be reaching out to brands directly in hopes of getting more details since the catalog this year is super light on details!
