Cool Mattes 2 (11)

Viseart Cool Mattes 2 (11) Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a new, updated take on Cool Mattes featuring a slew of smokier, cooler hues ranging from cool beige to cool violet. The formula on the mattes felt denser and a bit more substantial compared to past Viseart mattes, and in a way, they did seem more pigmented and swatched as well as they tended to apply on the lid, but some of the shades darkened noticeably on my lid and made it harder to apply them evenly, blend them out, or otherwise retain definition between shades due them darkening so much at times. I would recommend applying this over a primer and using a thicker, heavier layer of primer or concealer that has been powdered over.

They took a bit more effort to use together for a cohesive, more blended look than other Viseart mattes have for me in the past (often, Viseart mattes apply better than they swatch, but this palette seemed more consistent between swatches and actual application). I think that when combined with other shades (particular some shimmers), they’ll be easier to use together, too. Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the original Cool Matte palette and the Cool Mattes 2 palette.

Cool Mattes 2 #1

Cool Mattes 2 #1 is a cool, off-white with a matte finish. It had a smooth, slightly dense and lightly powdery texture that gripped better to bare skin and yielded opaque coverage in a single layer. There was a bit of dustiness, so it was best applied in a patting and pressing motion, then buffed afterward. It wore well for eight hours on me.

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.

Sand (Cool Mattes 2 #2)

Cool Mattes 2 #2 is a muted, medium beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin. The texture was soft, a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it was easy to work with and blended out beautifully on my lid. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading.

Cool Mattes 2 #4

Cool Mattes 2 #4 is a soft, light-medium lavender with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a drier, more powdery texture that was prone to sheering out on the lid. It was really hard for me to get pigmentation out of this, even building it up over primer and using it wet. It lasted for six and a half hours on me.

Cool Mattes 2 #7 is a muted, medium blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied fairly even and smoothly to bare skin, but there was some powderiness to the texture so I had to be careful to pat it on first to avoid fallout. It lasted for eight hours on me.

Cool Mattes 2 #12

Cool Mattes 2 #12 is a medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium pigmentation that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers, but the texture was drier and somewhat powdery, so there was fallout to contend with during application. It had a tendency to sheer out a bit, so I really had to pat and pack it on to get opaque, even coverage. I tried it over eyeshadow primer, and it didn’t appear quite as saturated on my lid as it did in the pan. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours on me before 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.

This is a complete skip for me. I already own the original Cool version, I don’t need that many cool toned mattes. Especially, since I don’t do that many cool toned looks. Although, I do like the look of version 2 better, it’s not worth it for how I do my makeup.

I had higher hopes for this palette. Thought it would turn out to be a good matte option for a cooler toned palette, but no, not so great. Feeling sad for those who were waiting for one to finally come together for them.

Wow, that eye look you did is so beautiful but I remain fully unimpressed with Viseart shadows in general… glad I have quite a few dupes…

Vaguely disappointed, but not entirely surprised. I did spring for this on the Mem Day sale. Doubt that non m/u people would see much difference between VCM 1 & 2. Watched Phyrra/Courtney do a look with the Nyx Gloomy Days palette, and that does seem the ‘cooler’ than this or Fame. The primers are poised and ready!

Christine, I’ve been having problems getting my daily email from you guys on my AOL and I sent in several requests to help but you guys never responded. I even tried using my other email account & you guys are saying I’m a spammer! Not true at all. Can you please help? I miss your emails.

Hi Tina,

I haven’t received any emails from you, and my developer hasn’t either 馃檨 We do have automated spam filters on the server, so that might be why, though as far as I’m aware, there’s nothing that would kick back to indicate a rejected email. They are in place because we do receive thousands of spam emails a day but no automation is perfect.

Unfortunately, I am not able to add you to the list because you unsubscribed from our newsletter! In order to resubscribe, you would need to subscribe to the list (sign-up form is on all pages) and confirm your subscription. If you’re still having trouble, please let me know, and I’ll have to add a support ticket for our newsletter service. Alternatively, if you have any past newsletter saved, there should be a link inside to update your preferences which may let you resubscribe that way.

Hi Christine I hate to keep commenting on this post but I never unsubbed you. Aol is terrible so I tried using my Gmail but on your end it’s saying I’m a spammer…

Hi Tina!

I’m getting other emails via our contact form (including Gmail) so I’m not sure why it’s kicking you out 馃檨 Our newsletter is maintained by MailChimp, and unfortunately, it shows you’ve unsubscribed when I check your status – did you try resubscribing or changing your preferences as I mentioned? I can’t manually override when someone has unsubscribed since that would violate their request, you know?

There are a few nice ones here, but I could do without the tans/browns. I would have preferred more taupy grays of different shades.

If Viseart were a TV Show , one could say, this brand jumped the shark.
I think Anastasia let the fame ( i.e. the positive reviews for on the BC, ppl perceiving it more than just an artist brand etc..) go to her head.
All of your latest reviews on this brand( except the theory palette with sunrise shades) have, imo, not matched for what they cost! I want at least B+ for $100.plus, $80. Or $45.00 palettes.
Why is it so hard to put together a cool palette? Ugh!

So just a slight improvement over the original Cool Mattes? Darn, was always tempted by colors of the original Cool Mattes the most out of all their 12-pan matte palettes, but resisted because both you and other reviewers found it didn鈥檛 perform quite as well as their other matte palettes. Ah well, guess I鈥檒l be able to keep resisting then 馃槀

Overall, I think this is a pretty good matte palette. Viseart have done really well on lots of shades, eg the grey and the blue in particular, that have bedeviled other brands. It’s a good mix of shades and will complement lots of different sparkly and shimmery palettes out in the marketplace.
Beautiful eye look Christine.

I am going to let the fact that I am on a no-buy be my reason for why I am not picking this up. Honestly still waiting for the cool toned palette of my dreams, LOL.

Too bad about the mediocrity of this one. I need the Cool mattes palette to complete my Viseart 12 pan collection. Lately Viseart’s eye shadows hasn’t been their stellar usual . I’m happy with the Viseart palettes I own. As Christine always says money saved.

I just can’t get behind a palette that’s all one type of finish, so this is an easy pass for me.

Oh… I am very disappointed by how some shadows performed. I really want to pick this up but if it is not up to viseart standard quality, I think I should just pass. What a shame! I really would love and use the colour selection a lot. 馃槩

I like this and I’ve heard other people raving about it. I wonder if you got duds or if different runs have different textures.

I have the Dark Mattes and love it. I鈥檓 debating on getting either the neutral mattes and the cool matte 2 or the grand pro volume one. It鈥檚 so hard to decide!
