Viseart Orange/Violet (01) Blush Palette

Viseart Orange/Violet (01) Blush Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a six-pan blush palette that is the same size (and contains the same amount) as the eyeshadow palettes. It comes in a black plastic compact with a clear lid. Each palette is divided into two families and is “scaled into three levels of cheek color, ideal for the fairest to deep skin tones.” The powder blush formula is supposed to “apply seamlessly” and have “sheer to fuller coverage.” In general, the blush applied better with a light-to-moderately dense brush, light hand, and built-up in layers rather than immediately packed into place. The texture was smooth but dusty, sometimes powdery, and kicked up excess in the pan, so with some of the richer shades, it was easy to over-apply. The formula played better with my skin when it was normal, whereas drier areas had some trouble with the product adhering to the skin for some shades but not all (if you normally wear a cream or liquid base, you should be good to go). The majority of the blushes in the palettes are mostly matte, and they look very smooth on the skin–they actually seemed to hide texture and pores, which was interesting. Most of the shades lasted at least eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin with some lasting as long as nine and a half hours.

Orange #1 is a bright pop of orange with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (to mostly opaque) with a soft, blendable texture that was rather powdery in the pan–it kicked up a ton of excess product every time I touched it, even with a light hand, so it can make the palette very messy. It wore well for eight hours on me. YSL Rebelle (7) (P, $47.00) is darker (90% similar). Lethal Cosmetics Tendril (P, $14.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Orange #2 is a medium-dark, burnt orange with warm, brown undertones and a mostly matte finish. The pigmentation was buildable from medium to full coverage. The texture was smooth, blendable, and not too dusty or too firm in the pan, so it was less messy than the prior shade. On me, this shade wore well for nine hours. Illamasqua Expose (P, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Rotonde (LE, $41.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Coppertone (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Orange #3 is a bold, bright, medium-dark orange-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, so it wasn’t what I would call buildable, as it is hard to get very sheer or light color without the barest tap of the brush in the pan (which is the same technique you’d use with any very pigmented blush). The texture wasn’t too soft or too firm, so it was easier to work with and sat well on the skin. This shade started to fade after eight and a half hours of wear. NARS Boys Don't Cry (LE, $41.00) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Brillante Idée (P, $32.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Savage (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Violet #1 is a medium lavender with pinky undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (almost opaque but not quite), but the dustier, thinner texture made it harder to apply to bare skin without it looking somewhat uneven. It took a lot of extra effort and buffing to get it mostly blended on the cheeks, so this is one that I liked better over powdered skin. It lasted for eight hours. Fenty Beauty Drama Class (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar). Makeup Geek Secret Admirer (DC, $9.99) is lighter (95% similar). ColourPop Floating Lights (LE, $8.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Sex Fantasy (LE, $30.00) is lighter (85% similar). ColourPop Rain (LE, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). ColourPop Whirl (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Coloured Raine Butterfly (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Lethal Cosmetics Hybrid (P, $14.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Violet #2 is a slightly muted, medium pinky-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. This type of shade is harder to find, and I’m so pleased to have seen more berry-hued products this year! It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation that could be applied at true-to-pan color after two and a half layers of product. The texture was soft, thin but not too powdery, and it applied and blended out without issue. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours. Urban Decay NOHO (DC, $26.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Chroma (P, $23.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Sesso (Blush) (PiP, ) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). NARS Chic (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). ColourPop New Lowes (LE, $8.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Take Me Home (Bottom) (LE, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). Lethal Cosmetics Morphology (P, $14.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). ColourPop Potted (LE, $8.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Dior Confident (783) (LE, $46.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Passionately Tempted (LE, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Cheap Shot (DC, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Authentic (LE, $29.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Violet #3 is a deep raspberry pink with cool, bluish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation–it is hard to apply at very sheer coverage!–that was fairly blendable. I found that the more I blended it out, the stronger the bluish undertone came through, which gave it a purplish edge against my complexion. I noticed fading after nine hours of wear with this shade. Flower Beauty Bitten (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Blind Score (LE, $22.00) is glossier (90% similar).

OMG these are gorgeous! I’m trying to maintain my willpower and not purchase any of these blush palettes but so far, they are all so tempting! I hope they come to Sephora, or Muse Beauty does another BTGT promotion, ASAP.

Thank you for your review ! 🙂 The palette does look kind of nice, but for the price, it better be an A. For me it’ll be a pass.
Just a question, though – on you, the shades look very intense : is it because of your camera ? Is it the palette itself ? Or did you apply it heavily for our sake ? Because to me, it seems really bold for an everyday wear, and, again, for the price, I feel like you wouldn’t want to fuss around too much to make it wearable…

Thank you for your answer ! I’ll probably pass on this one then, since I’m more of a natural kind of gal and I like being able to build up my blush as I wish. I wonder how pretty they would be as eyeshadows though…

This palette is genius! I swear, I have never seen a palette so perfect for layering and blending. I have really close dupes of two of these colors (Violet #3, Orange #1) and a somewhat dupe for another (Violet # 1 — though the finish on mine isn’t matte), but I’m seriously struggling with the urge to buy this.

Whilst I do have dupes for some of these, I could definitely see myself getting a lot of use from this palette. The advantage of neutral undertones: my face is happy with orange or violet!
