Viseart Midsommer Petit Pro Palette Review & Swatches

Midsommer

Viseart Midsommer Petit Pro Palette ($30.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, pink/mauve-leaning palette that includes five true mattes, one matte with random sparkle, and two shimmers. The shades went on fairly true-to-pan, so it was a lighter-leaning palette; on my skin tone, Cupidon and Puck looked almost the same, while Eglantine wasn’t much lighter.

I think this palette would be ideal for someone who only uses one or two shades in a look, as the shades together tended to run together (Midsommer being the most differentiated). It would also be more ideal for someone who likes sheerer coverage or more buildable eyeshadows–both of their place in the market but Viseart’s eyeshadows are supposed to have “intense, long-lasting color payoff,” so the results of this palette didn’t jive with the brand’s formula description.

The matte eyeshadows were medium to opaque in coverage, though often buildable, blendable, and easy enough to work with, though somewhat powdery in the pans. The shimmers were more loosely-pressed and worked best patted onto the skin with a fingertip. On my coloring, it end results didn’t vary much as a lot of the shades blended into each other in a way that made them look very similar once on.

Eglantine

Eglantine is a very light pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but it diffused and sheer out a bit too readily, so it was hard to keep it at that coverage level without a primer underneath. The texture was moderately powdery and had a bit of fallout during application (even when I tapped off the excess initially). This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

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.

Cupidon

Cupidon is a soft, rosy coral with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, though it was quite blendable, and had a bit of fallout if I wasn’t careful. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Puck

Puck is a muted, dusty rose with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was good and was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with, but it had to be used with a lighter hand to avoid excess powder kicked up in the pan (which led to fallout). This shade wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Midsommer

Midsommer is a brighter, deep pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely. The consistency was somewhat powdery with a tendency to sheer out a bit initially. It stayed on well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Faerie

Faerie is a very light pink with warmer undertones paired with a metallic finish that had a few bits of micro-glitter scattered throughout. It seemed to have more medium coverage, almost as if it had a transparent base, that worked well as an all-over shimmer shade on the lid as a wash of shimmer/sheen. For more semi-opaque coverage, I’d recommend applying with a fingertip or a dampened brush. The texture felt soft and finely-milled to the touch, so it was blendable and easy enough to work with The eyeshadow lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

FYI, the ingredient list includes plastic (PET) glitter – so it appears it is actually plastic glitter (not larger sparkle).

Potion

Potion is a medium, rosy mauve with flecks of gold and purple micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It had good color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin and diffused well along the edges without sheering out too readily. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but blendable, though there were some stray sparkles that dropped off my brush almost immediately. It wore decently for eight hours before showing signs of wear.

Titania

Titania is a deeper, cooler mauve with a matte finish. It had medium pigmentation in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage with two to three layers. The texture was somewhat powdery, which was likely why it wasn’t the most opaque from the get-go, but thankfully, it did seem to build up evenly without too much fallout. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Changeling

Changeling has a pinky-peach base with warm, undertones and blue-to-teal shift and micro-sparkle. It had a lightly, metallized finish that had some shine and twinkle but was less intense than the average metallic eyeshadow (which one may prefer! but just as an observation). The texture was soft, blendable but a bit thinner and had better, more even adhesion and fuller coverage applied with a fingertip. With a dry brush, it had more semi-opaque (but buildable) coverage with a touch of fallout. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

IDK. I like it far less than I thought I would. Also, the dupes I have (CP/SG) did better than the Viseart. Go figure, but that really ought not be true for the premier French brand, aimed at MUAs

Very soft, pretty eye look you did using this! I do appreciate more buildable mattes on my aging lids because they don’t get stuck in patches the way PML mattes can do on me. That said, this looks a little too pale for my summertime self. Perhaps great for winter, though I DO wish this contained one more shimmer shade in a deeper raspberry, and one of the mattes in a rich, deep plum.

Ooh this looks like the perfect palette for me. I’m a one or two shadow to a look kinda gal. I’ve been so good this year, I think I will treat myself!

This is why I wait for Temptalia reviews! Viseart palettes have a way of grabbing my attention, but when I look closer they’re not that great. Thanks for the review!

When I first saw this on Instagram I was positive I would pick it up since I love the Paris Edit palette. Your review left me underwhelmed, easy pass.

Hmmm – quite a few of the shades are very similar to each other. If some of the shades had been done with a different finish as well as making a couple of shades darker, say a plum, then this would be a pretty useful little palette.
Thank you for reviewing this so quickly Christine and your eye look is lovely.

I agree! I feel like the first three shades could offer more versatility – changing the finish is a great idea.

Thank you for mentioning the plastic glitter. As I personally don’t like the idea of using it this is now a very easy pass. I also think the colours are a bit too close and it would have been more versatile with a darker shade in the palette.
I will use your look as inspiration tomorrow though, very pretty!

As I suspected, just all too pink for me (I used to lament all the warm orange-y palettes and now it’s all the pink-themed ones, sigh…). I am also puzzling over the name – when I first saw it, I was “okay, is this a tip of the hat to the British TV series {different spelling}, the Scandinavian mid-summer celebration or the play by Shakespeare {again, different spelling}? Going by some of the names, I’m guessing it’s the last of these 3 but then why not just call it “Midsummer”? Two of my favourite roses are Eglantine and David Austin’s Proud Titania (which they grow at a botanical garden near my house).
