Amethyst

Viseart Amethyst Theory Palette ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six eyeshadows–three matte, three shimmer–in a mix of pink, mauve, and purple. I was surprised that the mattes were less pigmented than past palettes, though they were fairly buildable. The texture of the first two matte eyeshadows was looser and dustier, while the third shade was better and more buildable/blendable (than it looked). The shimmery shades were better but still not quite as good as past Viseart eyeshadows have been in my experience.

Viseart Amethyst #1 Eyeshadow

Viseart Amethyst #1 Eyeshadow

Amethyst #1

Amethyst #1 is a pale, muted pink with a matte finish. It had medium pigmentation, which was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage, with a soft, lightly dusty texture (which made it prone to sheering out, and I suspect that was why I couldn’t get full coverage out of it). It seemed thinner than other Viseart mattes I’ve tried. This shade lasted for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Viseart Amethyst #2 Eyeshadow

Viseart Amethyst #2 Eyeshadow

Amethyst #2

Amethyst #2 is a dusty, medium mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one layer, though it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers (better over a primer). The consistency was drier and more loosely packed in the pan, and I found it messier to work with in the pan (a lot of excess powder kicked up, even when I used very soft brushes) and more prone to fallout on the lid as well. The color started to fade after seven hours of wear.

Viseart Amethyst #3 Eyeshadow

Viseart Amethyst #3 Eyeshadow

Amethyst #3

Amethyst #3 is a medium-dark eggplant purple with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was drier, though it was not as loosely packed as the other shades, so it didn’t kickup as much powder in the pan when I used it. I also felt like it built up better and was easier to work with. This was a shade where it applied better in practice (on the lid) than just swatched, perhaps the smaller area or the more gradual building helped. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to opaque pigmentation with two to three layers. It wore well for eight hours before fading on me.

Ingredients

MINERAL TALC, MICA, MINERAL ZINC STEARATE, OCTYLDODECANOL (PLANT DERIVED), MYRISTYL LACTATE (PLANT DERIVED), OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STEARATE (VEGETABLE DERIVED), ISONONYL ISONONANOATE (PLANT DERIVED), TOCOPHEROL (PLANT DERIVED).

Viseart Amethyst #4 Eyeshadow

Viseart Amethyst #4 Eyeshadow

Amethyst #4

Amethyst #4 is a soft pink with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented and had a smooth, soft but not dusty texture. The eyeshadow was easy to apply to the lid and blend out without losing intensity or coverage. This shade lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Viseart Amethyst #5 Eyeshadow

Viseart Amethyst #5 Eyeshadow

Amethyst #5

Amethyst #5 is a medium-dark mauve with warm, brown undertones and a metallic sheen paired with a bit of sparkle. The eyeshadow seemed slightly looser in the press, so it was applied best by patting and pressing the eyeshadow onto the lid rather than sweeping. Once it was pressed into place, I had no issues blending out the edges. It had opaque, true-to-pan coverage that lasted nicely for eight hours on me.

Ingredients

MINERAL TALC, MICA, MINERAL ZINC STEARATE, OCTYLDODECANOL (PLANT DERIVED), MYRISTYL LACTATE (PLANT DERIVED), OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STEARATE (VEGETABLE DERIVED), ISONONYL ISONONANOATE (PLANT DERIVED), TOCOPHEROL (PLANT DERIVED).

Viseart Amethyst #6 Eyeshadow

Viseart Amethyst #6 Eyeshadow

Amethyst #6

Amethyst #6 is a medium-dark purple with subtle, cooler undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation–just a smidgen shy of full coverage–that was easily bolstered to opaque coverage with a touch more product layered on top. The eyeshadow was slightly firmer in the pan but not difficult to use or blend out. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading.

Ingredients

MINERAL TALC, MICA, MINERAL ZINC STEARATE, OCTYLDODECANOL (PLANT DERIVED), MYRISTYL LACTATE (PLANT DERIVED), OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STEARATE (VEGETABLE DERIVED), ISONONYL ISONONANOATE (PLANT DERIVED), TOCOPHEROL (PLANT DERIVED).
