Paris Love Letter

Viseart Paris Love Letter Etendu PaletteViseart Paris Love Letter Etendu Palette ($44.00 for 0.63 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral palette with a pop of spring green and lavender. There were six shimmer eyeshadows and six matte shades. The mattes were a little powdery and more buildable in coverage than as pigmented as past Viseart products have been (though more consistent with the last year or so of releases). The formula is easy to work with, despite light fallout, and longer-wearing in spite of the drier/more powdery feel to me. The shimmer shades were similar in opacity but softer and smoother, so most weren’t dry/powdery.

Letterbox

Letterbox is a light peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a soft, lightly powdery texture that blended out well but sheered out a bit in practice. It lasted nicely for eight 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.

Beloved

Beloved is a light, golden peach with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich color coverage with a soft, smooth texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly-pressed into the pan. There were signs of fading present after nine hours of wear.

Charmed

Charmed is a light, peachy coral with warmer, more golden shimmer and a sparkling finish. The consistency was slightly drier and felt more loosely-pressed, which resulted in semi-opaque color coverage that had light fallout during application. It worked better with a dampened brush or patted onto the lid with a fingertip. It stayed on decently for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Chocolatier

Chocolatier is a muted, medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was intensely pigmented with a soft, finely-milled consistency that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but applied evenly to bare skin, blended out well, and didn’t look powdery on. It wore well for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Sonnet

Sonnet is a soft, peachy brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and blended out well, but it didn’t build up to full coverage without a primer underneath. The texture was soft, slightly powdery but didn’t appear dry/powdery on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Cupid

Cupid is a brighter, medium coral with warm, more orange-leaning undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was moderately powdery with light fallout, so the mostly opaque coverage was more prone to sheering out during application. I had to build up and layer to get truer-to-pan color as it seemed to darken and look faded almost immediately after applying it. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading.

Poeme is a light peach with moderate, warm undertones and a bright, sparkling sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that could be built up by applying a second layer or used with a dampened brush/fingertip to achieve greater, more even coverage from the get-go. It had a more textured feel to the touch with a touch of fallout from the sparkles as it seemed a bit drier. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

This is so beautiful… but I think I’m just drawn to the green and lavender. Most of these shades just wouldn’t work for me, sadly.

Nice enough, I suppose, but I’m sure I can dupe the whole thing with what I have. And with as good, if not better, quality.
Also, am I the only one feeling like this is a bit of an attempted dupe (rip-off) for SG X Mel Thompson’s Palette? Looks awfully familiar, JS.

A soft, muted colour scheme. It reminds me too faced sweet peach, which I’ve never really love. Too soft colours do not suit me, they kinda was me out, I prefer medium tones. Easy pass

I felt that way on my skin tone, which is on the lighter end of the spectrum – I needed more contrast for versatility; the deepest shade offers contrast, but then it’s the same shade every time. For 12-pans, it seems lacking in contrast for me!

I agree. I am really driven to Ballad and Amour, but I know I would need to complement this palette with some deeper shades to achieve a good look – which is really disappointing for Viseart, since one of the main reasons why I purchase their items is for the completeness of their color stories in a very compact packaging (I still adore my Cashmere Theory, which I discovered thanks to Christine).

Weird how the box design has the bottom right corner shade as a steel-y blue, whereas in the palette it’s a taupe (Ballad). I would have preferred the blue.

This is a very pretty palette, although I think there are a few shades that are too similar to each other to be in the palette – eg Sonnet and Lovelorn, Poeme and Beloved. A few too many orangey shades too.
The pops of colour are beautiful. Much better quality than the ColourPop offering.

If this was their only palette with this color scheme, I would have been more tempted to purchase it but I feel Viseart is really missing the mark and their identity as a brand has become confusing to say the least. They keep putting out variations of the same warm tones. Within the past 1.5 years I think, Solstice, Praline, Chocolat, Minxette, Love Letter, Apricotine, Warm Edit, Spritz Edit etc. All the same recycled orange / peach colors. This palette is especially disappointing. Anybody beyond a fair – light complexion would be washed out by these colours, they are pale and not very pigmented. This is not an inclusive palette and all I can think of is this is being done for increased consumer attention and sales? Pat McGrath has a wide range of offerings but as tired I am of the lipstick launches, I don’t feel like eye shadow palettes are non-inclusive or water down her brand. Even within the (arguably very repetitive) Divine Rose line, she has 6 palettes that expand on the theme and are wearable across skin tones rather than being indistinguishable from each other. I am interested to see what else Viseart puts out as they have released 7 palettes (!) since December but I am less and less inclined to purchase from them.

I’ve been feeling the same way, Maya! Viseart used to inspire me, but a lot of the releases feel like the same concept, just mildly tweaked, and there’s not a lot in-between. I’ve also wondered about the lightness of a lot of the recent releases for deeper skin tones, though I recall Viseart saying they start all color testing on deeper skin tones and work backward to lighter skin tones, but visually, they have been leaning rather light.

ColourPop has had the same problem over the last couple of years. I’m not expecting neons or brights or tons of color all the time, but it’d be nice to see a variety in releases, too. In Viseart’s case, a lot of their palettes are still available, so it seems like it’d be overwhelming as a consumer to see so many similar palettes – which to choose?

I’ve reoriented Viseart in my mind over the last year in that they have a lane, and they don’t want to deviate it from it – soft, washed out neutrals – and that’s helped me adjust expectations over time (on a personal level; on a professional level, as long as quality is good, redundancy is less of a concern).

It’s interesting to see a HE brand use a strategy from a lower end brand. But clearly, CP is succeeding with recycling and expanding dupes time and time again. It’s disappointing that V’s older palettes, like warm mattes, etc. are so much more inclusive. The recent edits seem gauzy, light, romantic. Totally targeted for light medium and lighter tones. Suitable for Elvira Madigan, if anyone is old enough to remember that soft focus Swedish tragedy movie. Also, I don’t see these light edits as bucking the trend of creating more inclusive eye products.

I’ve not seen Elvira Madigan, but I knew the man who was the film editor and suggested the Mozart symphony for the music.
He, the editor, passed away many years ago, he was really nice. When I knew him he had a record store just for classic music.

I really want it. And when I compare my dupes with these, they’re almost all headed in a totally different direction texture-wise and color-wise , a difference that would be visible on the eye.
I skipped Minxette Étendu, but this is calling me

Although I have a lot of neutrals, I own relatively few peachy shades and these look very nice. I’ve really enjoyed the Viseart palettes I’ve bought thus far, so I’m definitely thinking of picking this one up. I hope it appears at Sephora Canada.

was looking for nude mattes with peach undertones and these are perfect for me! It’s not easy to find colors that give a lift on my eyes and I find that peachy nudes slightly bright and lighter than my skintone are the best for this purpose.

Unfortunately most of these shades are too deep for me in Viseart and other brands, but this palette should work! I even ordered a few palettes from Asian brands because apparently they’re the only ones who provide a wide range of light beige tones.
It’s rare to find these light colors leaning peach in Viseart offering, because all their warm palettes have deeper mattes (only Spritz edit has lighter nudes, but less peachy than these). These light peachy-beige tones cannot be found in their 12 pan offering either (I have neutral mattes, warm matte, cool matte, GP1 and GP3).
I was decided to buy the Tarte Juicy palette to find these colors, but I’m happy I resisted because now I can find them in Viseart formula that is my absolute favorite.

I understand this palettes is not for everyone, but I’m glad that finally I can find the colors I’ve been looking for years. Inclusivity means this, considering the whole offer. Every brand has its style and its shade preferences and I see the redundancy of some shades, but this palette has its uniqueness and it’s not the green.
