Viseart is a company that came into existence in 2012. Manufactured in Paris, this brand is found in most makeup artists collections. Why? Because the product is THAT good. Viseart palettes are known to be extremely pigmented, blendable and beautiful. They are also known to be extremely pricey. Quality, in this case, makes an excellent argument for value.
I am often hesitant to spend high money values on brands that I haven’t tried before. Only from the perspective of being on a budget and desiring the greatest bang for my buck. I was jubilant to discover that Sephora carries Viseart mini palettes for a fraction of the cost of the full-size ones. This is a great way to try new brands and sample the offerings. I purchased the 8 pan Viseart Petit Pro-1 palette for $38. The palette is the same size as my credit card and offers 8 pans containing 0.8gr/0.28oz of product each. This works out to $4.75 per container of shadow.
This palette is the perfect size for travelling. It comes with a cute little mirror and it folds up into a tiny package. The folds are magnetized so everything will stay neatly together. Featuring a 36 month expiry date, this product does not come with a brush. What it does have is a super pigmented product. One dip of the brush into the pan and you are good to go. Don’t swirl the brush around in the pan don’t wiggle it around, just one gentle swipe across the pan will be more than sufficient to get the brush loaded with product. Remember this product is high in Talc, so it is going to be very soft. If you dig at the pan you will just be wasting product/money.
I selected the first Petit Pro palette as something that I would be able to wear to work, this palette is anything but subtle. The shades blend like a dream, there are four mattes and four shimmers which provides a nice blend of finishes. I tested this out working in hot, humid conditions, with sweat and water flying everywhere. These shadows didn’t flinch. They looked just as amazing at the end of the day as when I first applied them. Even without primer, they didn’t fade. Without setting spray they didn’t disappear. I am keen jelly bean to try all of the Viseart Petit Pro palettes, if you get a chance they are worth ordering.
