Viseart Theory Palettes: Chroma, Minx, Cashmere (Review, Swatch, Photos)

Viseart is one brand I have purchased multiple times (check out my reviews of dark matte, bridal satin and matte eyeshadow palettes) in the last months or so because the overall quality of their products is phenomenal. So while I already own several neutral palettes, I had to get the newly-released Theory collection, and I believe you should too! Scroll down for the juiciest of scoop, swatches and makeup looks.

If you find the larger palettes a bit pricey ($80, 12 eyeshadows, 24 g/0.84 oz), then these palm-sized versions are your best entry point to the wonderful world of Viseart. Retailing for $45 (12 g/0.42 oz), each palette contains 6 coordinating eyeshadows (3 mattes, 3 shimmers) housed in a travel-handy cardboard packaging with magnetic closure. It opens up by pulling the ribbon outward, then down to reveal the shades. You can also mix and match because you can interchange the shades by pulling each one on the side. Worn under eye primer, the longevity is commendable; I get around 7-8 hours with minimal fading and negligible creasing.

Each palette caters to your own kind of neutral. Feeling quite adventurous and smokey? there’s Chroma for you. Like warm or fall-ish shades? check out Minx. Love plain neutrals? Cashmere it is. Each has its own character: fierce, sexy, sweet. It all boils down to preference. Undecided? well get three madam, you won’t be disappointed!

Let’s start with my number one favorite, Chroma. This palette has matte black, matte dark ash brown, matte white, shimmer gunmetal, shimmer taupe silver, and shimmer taupe champagne. The mattes have consistent buttery-soft texture while the shimmers are velvety-creamy. They all apply and blend effortless. In a way this palette reminds me of Tom Ford Eye Color Quad Titanium Smoke (mentioned here). It’s not a dupe by all means but just how the selection of colors are quite similar, except that Tom Ford has 4 shades obviously. Here are the swatches for your better appreciation:

Next in line is Minx, a warm palette which is perfect for fall. It has matte brown burgundy, matte warm brown, matte flesh, shimmer burgundy, shimmer copper, shimmer champagne. Again, all the mattes and shimmers are heaven to work with. No fallout and migration, just absolute best.

Finally there’s Cashmere, a cool palette which is ideal for everyday wear. It has matte chocolate brown, matte light brown, matte champagne, shimmer taupe, shimmer brown champagne and shimmer flesh. Except for shimmer flesh which feels a tad gritty (and a little bit harder to blend), the rest are impressive as expected.

Here’s Chroma in action. I used all shades to create this daytime-friendly smokey eyes. Other products used: gloMinerals Shimmer Duo Candle (reviewed here), Isaac Mizrahi True Bronze Powder Blush (reviewed here), Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick Dolce, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, By Terry Cellularose Moisturizing CC Cream (reviewed here).

    I've got 3 of the full size Viseart palettes but I'd love one of the new ones. Can't decide! Minx jumps out at me but I think it's most like the Neutral Matte Palette but not matte. Maybe Cashmere??

      If that's the case, I suggest go out of your neutral comfort zone, Minx or Chroma. Cashmere is a safe choice

    I totally want these palettes. They all look great.

    I bought one of these as a gift Now I think I need one for myself. They're so pretty on you!!

    Stunning! Chroma is the one that I have been wanting to get!

    I'm wearing Cashmere today for the first time and the way these blended was almost magical. I did get some shimmer fallout but it might have been from the shimmery flesh one. Next time I'll pat it on. Your looks are beautiful.

    Viseart can't ever do any wrong. These shades are so pigmented. The packaging is also nice.

    All of these are tempting, but the shimmery burgundy in the Minx palette is calling my name. Amazing looks!

  8. May 8, 2016 / 12:50 pm

    Minx is definitely the one I'd choose. Love the shades there!

    I really love Cashmere, it's so gorgeous! This would be the one I'd get 🙂
