Dark Edit

Viseart Dark Edit Edit Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, limited edition mix of autumnal tones, per the brand, that is designed to be universal across skin tones. There are four shimmers and eight matte shades. I’m still waiting on confirmation with respect to which shades are Pressed Pigments along with which shades are from what palette, but in the meanwhile, I’ve lined them up the best I can comparing these shades to shades found in other Viseart palettes (a good number are from Dark Mattes).

Most of the shades performed well, but a few of the mattes were trickier to use–ranging from more effort but very workable (Sienna) to mildly frustrating to work with (Lavender). I’d say that the texture of the mattes, on average, felt a bit more substantial and “richer” than the originals in Dark Mattes, and while they often swatched very similarly, they appeared much deeper/darker in their pans in this palette compared to the Dark Mattes palette.

Toffee (Dark Matte #1)

Toffee (Dark Matte #1) is a medium, taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was lightly dusty in the pan, but it applied well without dropping a ton of fallout and diffused easily along the edges. It lasted well for nine hours on me before fading a touch.

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.

Sienna (Dark Matte #3)

Sienna (Dark Matte #3) is a muted, medium-dark red-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer. The texture was a touch drier, somewhat thinner compared to the other mattes, which felt more substantial. The eyeshadow applied fairly evenly and blended out without much effort but wasn’t quite as foolproof as other shades. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Sepia (Dark Matte #4)

Sepia (Dark Matte #4) is a medium-dark brown with strong, warm red-orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly dusty and had a smidgen of fallout during application, but it was extremely pigmented where a little went a long way. I had no trouble applying and diffusing the edges for a nice blend. This shade wore well for nine hours before I noticed any fading.

Persimmon (Dark Matte #8)

Persimmon (Dark Matte #8) is a brighter, medium-dark copper with strong, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff that adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin, while the edges blended out without difficulty. The texture was soft, lightly dusty in the pan but not prone to fallout or sheering out when applied to my lid. It lasted well for nine hours before showing signs of fading.

Beaujolais (Dark Matte #6)

Beaujolais (Dark Matte #6) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were very faint micro-shimmers throughout that helped the powder to blend out more readily, but it appeared matte in finish on my lid. The texture was slightly drier to the touch with a bit of dustiness in the pan, but there wasn’t noticeable fallout during application. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, and it blended out without too much effort but could have been easier to diffuse along the edge. It wore nicely for nine hours on me before fading visibly.

Lavender

Lavender is a rich purple with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied somewhat unevenly and was more difficult to diffuse and blend out. I also felt like it darkened substantially on my skin, even over primer, and as a result, it lost some of that vibrancy and ended up looking more like Beaujolais in practice (rather than offering more contrast). The texture was slightly stiff in the pan and felt a bit drier compared to other Viseart matte shades. It lasted well for nine hours before fading noticeably and left a faint stain behind.

Foret

Foret is a blackened blue with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. This was the only shade that I didn’t feel lined up with any past shades by Viseart–it either too warm or too cool to compare with other, deeper bluish shades the brand has done. The texture was slightly firmer, stiffer, and on the thinner side, so it wasn’t as blendable as would be ideal, but it was workable–decent but room for improvement. It had rich pigmentation, so I’d recommend using less and building up to make it easiest to work with. This shade stayed on well for nine hours before I noticed any fading.

Absinthe (Absinthe #6)

Absinthe (Absinthe #6) is a blackened, forest green with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation but needed a half of a layer more for full coverage. The texture felt smooth to the touch, slightly emollient which ensured no powderiness, and it applied and blended out nicely. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before creasing faintly.

Calypso (GPV2 #15)

Calypso (GPV2 #15) is a vivid, orchid purple with warmer, pink undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, while the eyeshadow had a smoother, lightly creamy consistency that sat well on my skin and blended out seamlessly. It lasted well for nine hours on me before creasing slightly.

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.

Burnished Copper (Siren #6)

Burnished Copper (Siren #6) is a rich, deeper copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was dense without being stiff or too heavy/thick on my skin. The eyeshadow stayed on well for nine hours on me before fading visibly.

Buillion (GPV2 #12)

Buillion (GPV2 #12) is a bright, medium gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one pass, which built up to full coverage with less half of a layer more. The texture felt emollient to the touch, smooth and not at all powdery, while it applied best with a flat, synthetic brush as there was a little more slip than was ideal for a fluffier brush (which could sometimes just push the product around unevenly). It wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

This would come in super handy for traveling, even if just bus hopping across town! I truly appreciate what Viseart put together here. The color story, the quality, the whole shabang!

It’s so warm-toned, but I’m still drawn to it. Not sure why? Maybe because I’m ready for fall and it’s Viseart. :o) I did just pick up the Colourpop So Jaded palette and I’m excited to see if you review it. Maybe that’ll keep me from picking up this one, which I kinda already know may not work for me. It’s so tempting though…

This palette looks really good – lots of great scores and the brand has nailed the darker matte shades very well, with an exception or two. It’s not for me, but I can appreciate how lovely it is.

Wow! Looook! The gradation is superb, and it’s far less intense/deep than I predicted. Really beautiful. I wish Viseart would put out some 4 or 5 pans, ala ND. But existing shades, not so much extension/complementary. Better yet, pick your own. Wasn’t wowed by the singles that V issued.

Mardi Gras 2020 here we come! I’m really thinking about giving Viseart another try as I wasn’t impressed by Golden Hour, but have read so much positive reviews about their quality and blending. Concerned though about Lavender as that’s a more unique color for me so I’d like it to work well (as in play nicely with other palettes). Heading off the check the dupe machine. ;). Thanks Christine!

Oh these are lovely! And for that price, I am very interested.

*Does anyone know if there’s a way I can see all the swatches side by side? I know sometimes reviews present with that option, not sure if I’m missing it here…?

You have to go to the Swatch Gallery and view by product (Dark Edit palette) – it is not included in the review specifically (in general… that’s not a thing we have in reviews!). Only something like a sneak peek would show the swatches together since that’s the entire post – swatches!

I could not be any more excited! I have been really into smokey eyes lately and been getting a bit bored by the dark mattes that I have (greys browns reds…) so this is going to fill the gap very nicely! I can dupe at less than half of the shades in the palette and given Viseart’s good reputation, I doubt any of my dupes are as high quality as this. Too bad Lavender shows up darker, but I still want to try and make it work somehow as a bright purple. I’ve been looking for a shade like this for some time.
Do you know if all of these are perfectly eye safe?
