Chou Chou

Viseart Chou Chou Petit Pro Palette ($30.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new palette for summer that features a mix of orange, pink, and an unusual pop of silver. There was a surprising amount of near-identical overlap between shades in this palette and past shades released by the brand.

With the exception of Sand Castle, the formula was consistent with past Viseart releases; the mattes were pigmented, blendable, and performed better on the eyes than swatched alone, while the shimmers felt a little more softly-pressed than a few years ago but consistent with more recent launches (pigmented, blendable, minimal to no fallout).

There’s no indication of which shades may or may not include color additives that are not approved for eye usage by FDA, but Red No. 7, Red No. 27, Red No. 28 appear in the +/- portion of the ingredient list, which are often pigments used to get richer hues (like neon pinks and corals!) that are marked as “Pressed Pigments” by a lot of brands (who all still throw them into what looks and feels like an eyeshadow palette anyway). These color additives are allowed in eye products by EU regulations. I would expect Popsicle, Melon, and Cotton Candy to be the shades most likely to be of the “Pressed Pigment” variety due to their hue/brightness.

Sand Castle

Sand Castle is a light, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage with a very powdery texture that had a ton of fallout and sheered out.

Unfortunately, it applied a lot like it looked swatched, so it did not improve much during application. I’d recommend applying it earlier on if using it above the lid area due the fallout dropped. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.

Creamsicle

Creamsicle is a light orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which built up easily to full coverage with less than a layer on top.

The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan but applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. I tend to find that Viseart’s matte formula works better in practice than swatched, which was true here. It stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Sangria

Sangria is a medium-dark orange-coral with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was soft and felt more loosely-pressed in the pan, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand to pick up product (or use a dampened brush) to avoid kicking up too much excess in the pan.

It had good pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The eyeshadow lasted well for nine hours before fading a bit.

Popsicle

Popsicle is a neon, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, lightly powdery consistency that proved to have more powderiness in the pan but not so much during application.

There wasn’t fallout, and the color went on with opaque coverage without sheering out too readily. This shade wore well for nine hours before fading a bit, and it left a stain behind.

Icy

Icy is a bright, medium silver with cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had a lot of shimmer and sparkle in it, so it applied best with a fingertip or a dampened brush, which helped to smooth out the product and give a more even application of color.

Applied with a dry brush, there was light fallout and a need to go back and massage the color into place. It had nearly opaque color payoff that stayed on well for nine and a half hours with faint fallout over time.

Melon

Melon is a neon, pink-coral with a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that wasn’t too softly nor too firmly pressed into the pan. The product picked up well with a brush and applied with an even laydown of product that was blendable along the edges. It lasted well for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, bluer undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer or when applied over primer.

The texture was soft, smooth, and a little dusty in the pan, but it applied evenly and wasn’t prone to fallout nor sheering out too readily. The color blended out with ease and wore well for nine hours. There was a faint stain left behind.

Sorbet has a medium, peachy-coral base with gold-to-green shifting shimmer that gave it a soft, metallic finish. It had rich color coverage that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even laydown of product and didn’t produce fallout.

The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly nor too softly pressed into the pan. It wore nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

Okay, I love the eyelook you got out of this. Very “neon beach!” Makes me think of sandcastles built from colored sand lol.

Not for me either… fair with pink undertones here, too. I think I have all these colors in my collection anyway. 🤔❤️

I have a few of them – shocking pinks and colours like Sorbet – but not by choice. They’re shadows that came in pre-made palettes and languish, untouched and overlooked!

Yep, Mariella – this is definitely not for me! I must say that I enjoyed looking at those new CT quads – Green Lights in particular – that one was certainly ‘our’ kind of shades.

You are so right about the Green Lights quad but I looked at the reviews of it (well, of the Rebel quad) at Sephora’s site and they weren’t all that encouraging. Between Chanel’s Tisse d’Automne (which I know you have) and Empreinte du Desert (which I’m pretty sure you have), I think we might have all the dupes we need for Green Lights (but I wouldn’t skip it entirely if I were able to find it in-store when we are able to shop in person again)

Stunning eyelook Christine! Really I love it… Now I’m searching for dupes in my stash to recreate it… Even if I don’t know when I’m going to do it… You know, during the lockdown makeup is quite useless

Thank you, Francesca!

If you have the time to play with makeup, it might be a nice way to stretch your creative muscles and experiment without having to worry about going anywhere (e.g. if it doesn’t look perfect, it’s no big deal!) 🙂

Even though I know I can dupe these shades with in my stash, I’m still extremely tempted to get this because the shades are all in one spot instead of across three different palettes. But yeah, pretty sure I could take UD Electric palette, CP Yes, Please and probably UD Urban Spectrum and get something fairly close, I suppose.

I really love the color story, though I’m trying to figure out how a brand as good as Viseart effed up a basic shade like Sand Castle so badly. It’s so close to my skin tone that I probably wouldn’t use it very much anyway, though.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
