Viseart Paris Edit Eyeshadow Palette Review

I am apparently now in the phase of my life where I can sometimes buy luxury makeup for myself. I recently splurged on the Viseart Paris Edit Eyeshadow Palette, and I spent three days pondering do I really need thisShould I buy it?

Even a few years in I’m not really used to the idea that my husband & I have two incomes. When he went back to school we pinched every penny, and I’m still kind of in that mindset. I remember blogging and subscribing to all these little beauty boxes so that I could review minis on my blog. Even now I hesitate before every purchase! After thinking about it for a good while I decided that I wanted the Viseart Paris Edit Palette after all.

I saw some people are saying it’s similar to the UR A QT palette from ColourPop, but I personally felt that they were different. While some of the shades are similar the finishes aren’t identical. I’ve heard amazing things about Viseart shadows and the Paris Edit palette spoke to me… But did it hold up to my expectations? Keep reading to find out!

Viseart Paris Edit Eyeshadow Palette Review

Bisous! A little love letter from our heart! Emanating from the soft ethereal light of the world’s most romantic city of love – our Paris Nudes Collection celebrates the gentle vitality of the magical city of Paris!

The Viseart Paris Edit Eyeshadow Palette retails for $39USD and contains 12 shades in a mix of matte & shimmer finishes. In addition to four matte shades there is also one sequin matte finishes, which contain a bit of sparkle in the matte base. The remaining 7 shades are shimmers.

Viseart Paris Edit Palette Packaging

Packaging

This is probably a me thing, but personally I find the flip book style packaging a little inconvenient. Unlike a traditional palette you have to flip the cardboard over and around to get to the shadows. If you store the palette with the pull tab & brand name facing up, you’re actually storing the palette with the shades facing downwards. The packaging looks nice, I just don’t think it’s all that practical.

The Viseart Paris Edit palette contains a mirror which is a nice touch and makes it travel friendly.

This is a small palette. If you were expecting something larger than the palm of your hand don’t hold your breath! For me as an eyeshadow collector I don’t mind, it will take me years to hit pan on this with how much I rotate through my other palettes.

Color Story

The Paris Edit palette gives me wedding season vibes! The colors are rosy & romantic. I probably wouldn’t wear these shades as a bride, but I can definitely see them for a bridesmaid or a wedding guest. I’ve been wearing this palette both on work days as well as my days off.

I appreciate that there’s a lighter champagne shimmer for a fabulous brow bone or inner corner highlight. The Paris Edit palette also has some neutral tan shades for a quick everyday look, but there are also a few fun purple & smokey shades. I used to always think I needed to have a matte shade for my crease and outer corner, but I tried out some of the shimmers in my crease and they were absolutely fine!

My favourite eyeshadow in the palette is the smokey blue-grey shade.

Pigmentation, Fallout & Blend

The mattes in the Viserart Paris Edit aren’t the most buttery & smooth shadows I’ve ever seen, but they’re definitely good eyeshadows. They blend out smoothly without skipping or clinging and don’t take a lot of effort to move around. The shades definitely show up against my fair skin tone, which is sometimes a worry for me with lighter pinks.

The glitter in the bordeaux sequin matte shade doesn’t show up on my eyes. Sequin shades are pretty to look at in the pan, but the only brand I’ve seen do sequins well is Tati Beauty with the Textured Neutrals Vol. 1 palette.

The Paris Edit Palette has such gorgeous shimmers! They’re soft & smooth to the touch and look absolutely beautiful on the eyes. They might be a touch too soft however, they’re very prone to breaking in the pan and I’ve had to press a couple shades back together already.

I usually apply shimmer eyeshadows with a flat brush, but I’ve noticed Viseart’s shimmers don’t always grip well to these types of brushes. I’ve found that they apply better with a slightly fluffier brush, or with setting spray to help with adhesion. They also apply just fine with my fingers.

The Paris Edit Palette has a “normal” amount of fallout, it’s nothing crazy. I can get away with doing my foundation first.

Viseart Paris Edit Swatches

Viseart Paris Edit Palette Swatches

The swatches are where you can really see the shimmers shine! No pun intended… but they’re so ethereal on the skin. They catch the light beautifully.

The eyeshadows in this palette do have names, but they aren’t printed anywhere on the palette. They are however printed on the back of the box, so I guess I won’t be recycling the packaging anytime soon.

Pétale: Petal pink matte
Champs-Elysées: I have no idea what this means in French, but this is a stunning ethereal Champagne Shimmer
Creme-Brûleé: Toffee Brown Matte
Fleur: Pretty Pale Purple Matte

Opera: Shimmery Pink
Beaux-Arts: Shimmery light Copper
Tulle: Peachy Pink Matte
Cerise: Bordeaux Sequin Matte

St. Germain: Shimmery Nightingale blue
Marais: Warm Gold Shimmer
Pirouette: Deep Copper Shimmer
Tuileries: Mauve Shimmer

Viseart Paris Edit - Spring Picnic look

The Looks

Spring Picnic

This look is something I came up with one morning when I was planning on spending my day outdoors gardening. This is an eyeshadow look that I would wear on a Spring Picnic, the pink & purple shades TulleFleur are so soft & pretty! I paired it with the ColourPop Maui Wowie Lip Crayon and some Shop Miss A Lashes.

Viseart Paris Edit Palette Eyeshadow Look

Spring Wedding

I would definitely wear this soft glowy look to a Spring Wedding. I love the shade St. Germain, it’s the blue shade you see in my crease at the edges. It looks more bronzey in the photo but in person it’s definitely blue! I also topped the look with Beaux-Arts in the centre of the lid, plus a light dusting of my Essence Melted Chrome shadow in the shade Ironic — The melted chrome shadows are absolutely fantastic, you can read my review here!

Save the Date

aka — The most glam of the looks I did with the Paris Edit palette! I haven’t been doing many cut creases or experimenting with techniques lately. This pandemic has kind of got me in a creative rut, my makeup has been pretty basic. The day I did this look my husband was on night shifts and was sleeping, so I had to try and find a new spot to take my photos! My office isn’t ideal, but it was the only place that had enough light.

I did a soft cut crease, and it;s obvious that I’m a little out of practice. I still love how this look turned out, you can see how pretty the shimmers are! The mattes are good, but the Shimmers are where the Paris Edit really shines if I do say so myself.

Have you tried Viseart eyshadows? What do you think of the Paris Edit Palette?

I have no regrets with this purchase, though we’ll see how much I actually use it this time next year. I definitely have way too many eyeshadow palettes, but they’re all special & unique to me. This was a great intro to Viseart shadows, I would buy more in the future. Thanks for reading! Don’t forget to follow me on social media @alwayscleia. x

    I just discovered your blog because I was searching for a good old-school written review (no youtube video) and I freaking love it!! The palette is so beautiful, and your looks are amazing!! Thank you so much for this review.
    And I’m French so I can tell you that Champs Elyssees is one of the most famous boulevards of Paris and also one of the most beautiful ^^

      Thanks for stopping by! And sorry about the late reply, I’ve been away for a while. I’m so glad you liked the review 😊
      I’d love to visit Paris one day, once this pandemic has settled down. Might be a few years 😄

    Love the colors . I love the cool tones

    It’s a beautiful palette and the shades really suit you.

      Thanks Siyana! I hope you’re doing well 💜

    I know you said that the palette was small, but until you put it in your hand, I didn’t realize how tiny it actually was! It’s kinda pricey for a palette of that size, but the shades are so beautiful! Great review Cleia xx

      I thought I replied to this, sorry! Yeah it’s tiny! It’s hard to believe a palette this small costs $50 😆 I do love it though! Thanks for reading!

  5. June 14, 2020 / 9:14 pm

    wow such a small palette!! but so so beautiful in terms of color story and i usually am not one to be swooned by looks alone LOL. i can see why you say the packaging is inconvenient, i’d say it’s a bit more protected. 🙂
    the shades definitely look stunning swatched and* on the eyes 😀 the looks you created are perfect!!! it’s ok to do “basic” looks, i’ve been doing them too but nothing wrong with that 🙂
    i will eventually have to invest in one of their palettes so i can try their formula for myself 🙂

    • July 7, 2020 / 2:28 pm

      It’s so tiny! I’m not entirely sure it’s worth $50, but I do like it a lot.
      All I do these days is basic looks, I hope when this pandemic is all over I’ll find more time for more interesting makeup lol Thanks for reading!

      • July 9, 2020 / 12:36 pm

        I may consider buying from this brand if they ever go on sale but who knows if that will ever happen haha
        Same, I’ve been in a makeup rut for what feels like months and I am hoping to find inspiration in some places but failing haha

        • July 9, 2020 / 6:50 pm

          I hope they do! A sale would make it a lot more affordable 😕 me too, this pandemic is sucking out all my creativity. I hope you can find your inspiration again!

    I also recently purchased this palette for similar reasons. I have a bit more money at the moment to treat myself and I’ve always wanted to try Viseart. I get what you mean about the flip packaging- it’s meant to stand up like an easel but I never use palettes that way. I do love that the pans are magnetic and removable though and the colour scheme is so soft and pretty!

  7. June 6, 2020 / 10:37 am

    Such a beautiful grouping of shadows, wow! I definitely get what you’re saying with the wedding vibes too. I haven’t experimented much with Viseart at all, but it usually gets pretty consistent high marks. I’d probably start out with one of their Petit Pro palettes that literally fit in the palm of your hand! Beautiful looks you created ❤️.

    • July 7, 2020 / 2:33 pm

      They did such a great job with this edit! I would try their shadows again in the future 😊 I wish there were weddings to go to this year 😂

      • July 9, 2020 / 10:27 am

        I’ve heard there have been weddings over Zoom! 😄

        • July 9, 2020 / 6:48 pm

          Technology is spectacular! I don’t know how people got through the Spanish flu in the 1900s

          • July 11, 2020 / 12:33 pm

            I think knowing a lot less than we do probably helped. Ignorance is bliss!

  8. June 4, 2020 / 7:12 am

    Uhh what great pictures! The palette looks incredible <3 I'm such a sucker for rosy-bronzy-pinky colours

    • July 7, 2020 / 2:34 pm

      Thank you! It’s such a gorgeous palette 😊

  9. June 3, 2020 / 4:05 pm

    The colours in this palette are very romantic and beautiful! Like you say it would make a great wedding/special occasion palette! Looks like a good mix of matte and shimmer shades too. Spring Picnic is such a pretty look on you x
