Framboise

Viseart Framboise Petits Fours Eyeshadow Palette ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes two matte shades (peach and pink) and two shimmery shades (pale pink and rosy copper). For those who don’t mind some fallout or building up coverage, the rating may seem low; I think most shades built up without difficulty and were easy enough to use, but I found the formula to be a little weaker across the board compared to most Viseart eyeshadows.

I was surprised to find that two shades–Glacage and Confiture–both contain plastic (PET) glitter in them, as the particle size was very small, and I couldn’t really see what made it different compared to borosilicates (which are used in other shimmer shades usually). There was no warning on the palette, though after seeing it in the ingredients’ list, I noted that the product is called a “Professional Pigment Palette.”

Crème

Crème is a light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft but moderately powdery, so it had some fallout and a tendency to sheer out too readily. It had more medium to semi-opaque coverage before blending, and it was a shade that applied better over an eyeshadow primer as it seemed a little drier. It stayed on decently for seven and a half 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.

Glacage

Glacage is a very light pink with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling/glittering finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a soft, lightly dusty consistency. The product applied evenly and blended out well but had light fallout during application and then some additional fallout over the eight and a half hours it lasted well for.

This shade contains plastic (PET) glitter further down the ingredient list–it was unexpected as nothing about the product screamed “glitter” to me.

Confiture

Confiture is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle/glitter throughout. The texture felt more emollient, more loosely pressed, and there was light fallout when blended out, so I’d definitely try to press and pat it into place to minimize fallout. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that could be built up to full coverage. There was slight fallout over time and more visible fading after eight and a half hours of wear.

Framboise (Petits Fours)

Framboise (Petits Fours) is a medium-dark pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation but needed to be built up to full coverage as the texture was lightly powdery, so it sheered out a bit too easily when applied to bare skin. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

This color story is covered a dozen times in my other Viseart eyeshadow palettes, so I wasn’t even tempted, but seeing that PET glitter was included really disappointed me. I don’t expect big, loud, glittery shades from Viseart, anyway – I have other eyeshadows for that – and to know that I now have to check their ingredients list to be sure there isn’t any plastic glitter in my eyeshadows to irritate my contact-wearing eyes annoys me. I expect this from Colourpop, and it is one of the reasons I upgraded to try Viseart shadows in the first place. Now, my go-to shadow palettes require greater diligence on my part when deciding whether to add to my collection.

Thanks for your review Christine! I bought these on a bundle from Beautylish and I didn’t realise they had PET glitter so now one palette is a write off which is sad. So disappointing that Viseart continues to use PET glitter in their products. I find that despite the hype, their customer service is quite poor. My sisters and I who are big makeup fans have all asked them about why they keep using PET glitter in eyeshadows that are made in the USA and clearly not eye safe and not labelling them as such. Unfortunately we got banned despite asking politely as loyal fans for many years. Have read a couple of instances of this happening with other customers who ask about the safety of the ingredients. It has made me lose a lot of confidence in the brand. I loved these palettes and thought they would be great to use as well as great gifts but now not sure what to do with Framboise.

Oh, I’m super bummed to hear that, Maya! 🙁 It was really a surprise to see PET in this quad – like it doesn’t look/feel like it would at all.

Thanks so much Christine and thank you for reporting and looking out for your readers! I know in your original post about PET glitter you said you would not be using these products without an adhesive base. Do you still use these finer PET products and if so, what types of bases do you recommend please? Tacky concealer, glitter glue etc? Do you have any special instructions for makeup removal with these products? Thank you again

A lot of times I have used them without knowing – I didn’t realize this had any until after I had already applied it!

I am personally more concerned with overall size (and how much) and type of formula, but the finer glitter is what I feel got stuck in my eye (though the shade was heavier on the glitter), LOL! I’d use something like MAC Fix+ for sparser, finer products for better hold.

Thank you again Christine! I am sorry you had to go through that. I have had previous abrasions and they are stressful (hence my caution). I guess once you find out a shade has PET glitter do you reuse them? Trying to see if there is any way I can salvage the palette but maybe better to eat the cost than risk my eyes. Luckily a lot of beautiful eye safe makeup out right now – Pink Corolle seems like a much creamier formula with those pinks and safer as well

If it’s a shade that I feel can be applied damp with Fix+, possibly, but it has to be different/interesting, otherwise I, too, would choose a similar shade that is without, just to be safer.

A lot of the glittery formulas are pretty when you look at them, and I get my “fix” for that twinkle by using duochromes, multichromes, etc. so I tend to go that route myself.

But go figure, lots of UD eyeshadows (often the ones that were described as having “micro-glitter”) had PET glitter in them for probably a decade at this point!

I love Viseart shadows, but also find their cs very rude and snarky. I privately dm-ed them on IG, asking about where their Neutral Mattes palette was manufactured (US or France) and if the formula has changed (because the INCI is different, if you compare the newer versions to the former, hand made in Paris one) and they didn’t respond directly, but gave me a lecture about FDA and their requirements, not even responding to my further questions (but I can see the “seen” indicator). They insisted the formula hasn’t changed, but I’ve seen many people who own both versions attesting to the decline in quality. I also don’t like they still keep Paris in their brand name, when they are now a 100% US based company.

Sorry you had these experiences Lili. I have to agree. I contacted them because I have very sensitive eyes. A few years ago, when they didn’t have much of a consumer line and were mainly pro, they were very helpful and kind. I was on good professional consumer terms with the CS and brand. I am not an influencer in any way, just a customer, so I never received anything charitable or gifted from them. I made several expensive purchases and supported their brand, even now. The strange thing is that they would keep directing me to other emails / channels in their company and then all of a sudden banned me on all social platforms after asking about PET glitter. Same happened to my sisters. I love their products and clearly still support their brand (perhaps my folly) but was very disheartened to discover that. I have noticed this with other brands as well. If I ask about another ingredient I am allergic to, they will respond without issue but with the territory of pigments and PET, several brands have not responded at all which makes me a bit skeptical. Nabla was quite good and said everything was EU approved but they were the one exception. If brands want to use these non-eye safe ingredients and market in the States, they should follow FDA guidelines and label products with non-approved ingredients so we can decide whether or not to buy them.

No, nah, nada, nope. Bad enough it would make me look like I had “pink eye”, but it may even give me a real-life case if it! They really don’t look like they have PET glitter in them, but I’m taking no chances.

This is a surprise that Viseart are using PET glitter – I didn’ think this brand did. And it’s not a happy surprise either. There was absolutely no need to add this kind of glitter – even in a miniscule amount. Eye irritations are not funny and this is stressful for people. who normally buy from this brand and wear contacts, to find out they have to check the ingredients list.

I’m extremely disappointed that they include PET without warnings. Thanks for pointing it out and that’s why I always only buy eyeshadow from your reviews!!

Even though FDA did not say anything changed when I reached out earlier this year, it feels like something did within the industry as a lot of larger brands (Fenty, MAC, NARS, etc.) started to include it in eyeshadows and didn’t have the expected warning/disclosure!

If an ingredient is not safe it will not be included in the product. Of course it is annoying for companies to be asked again and again and again if it’s safe. If people do not feel PET is safe for cosmetics, please contact your regulator and scientists to prove it. It only takes a few people having eye problems and sue a company for it to change. Cosmetics companies have used PET for decades and if it’s unsafe they would have been sued a thousand times over, no?

If you are allergic to peanuts you yourself have to check packaging for ingredient information and take responsibility for your health. Same with if you are clumsy.

I reached out to the FDA and received this response on January 16th of this year, emphasis added:

“FDA regulates the dyes and pigments used for coloring foods, drugs, cosmetics, and medical devices or the human body as “color additives.” Glitter (polyethylene terephthalate) imparts color to cosmetics so it meets the definition of a color additive. FDA has not approved the use of glitter or polyethylene terephthalate as a color additive in cosmetics or any other FDA-regulated product.

You also asked if the regulatory status of Red 28 Lake (CI 45410), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), and Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985) has changed in that they are now allowed for eye-area use.

These are still non-permitted color additives in eye-area use cosmetics.”

The EU does not have any restrictions on the usage of plastic glitter as far as I could tell when I researched. I wrote extensively on the information available regarding plastic glitter here: https://www.temptalia.com/cosmetic-grade-glitter/

Up until the last year or so, most brands would include a warning that a product wasn’t for usage around the eye area if it contained plastic glitter, for reference.

I’m glad you have such faith in cosmetics companies.

Plenty of people have had problems with plastic glitters, including Christine herself. You don’t have to be clumsy to be affected by a potentially dangerous ingredient in an eye shadow.

Really no reason I can think of to include a possibly irritating glitter ingredient, it just looks like a regular old shimmer anyways. Actually, it look like a dusty and dry shimmer at that
