Perfect, works for me as contour or highlighter brush. Blend powders well, bristles have a nice texture to it, picks up and blends products out like a breeze. Very functional.
First impressions are these: the shadows are nice and soft, they’re smooth, however, the pigmentation is on the subtle side, it’s not punchy in pigmentation. Not a fan of the white glitter shade, basically the first three colors don’t show up too too well, the darker colors are more Visible.. and pretty. It’s mostly matte and subtle, great for an everyday barely there-natural-throw some color on-out the door kinda look. It’s okkk, the overspray is cute but fleeting, the colors are nice and I’ll probably keep it. Not sure if I’ll grow to love it more or hate it more, time will tell.
Very good usable brushes. Bristles are dense and well shaped. This set is very purposeful and useful. They’re not the most luxurious brushes but a very good set to start off with.
Love this powder for setting my t zone and under eye. Basically where I have pores or texture or where I want a smooth/set finish. I don't use it all over this face because it'll look too flat, i like a more natural dewy look. The texture is smooth, and very finely milled, no shimmer or iridescent particles. Its matte but never chalky. The color is transparent, the finish it gives is smooth and blurred. Its most comparable to my too faced born this way powder. they're both finely milled, smoothing, and blurring. The viseart powder is however slightly more blurring and more mattifying. It also seems to prolong my makeup better than the too faced powder.
If you have dry skin, this powder is great for the t zone, you may find it too "drying" for all over the face.
If you have oily skin, i think you'll love this powder. it sets your makeup and leaves zero texture. In terms of wear, it reminds me up the Laura mercier powder, but the viseart is superior in finish. its much more finely milled. This has become one of my top powders, replacing even the Laura Mercier powder.
I have nothing bad to say about this powder. Even the packaging is nice. I press a my powder brush on the mesh area, flip the container upside town, and do a couple of taps. I get a nice sprinkle of powder on my brush using this method. For reference, I have combination oily skin.
This formula is bomb, so soft with a very subtle sheer sheen. this is one of those wear with any look kind of blushes, I have no complaints. Will be buying a more pinky version of this blush in the future.
I can justify paying and owning one of these pAlettes but not both. If I had to choose one, it would hands down be the Lila. It has more finishes and color variety. I find it more wearable and versatile. I have to almost force myself to make use of the sunset palette. There’s too many shades that are too similar to each other, they’re just matte oranges... I easily lost interest.
I don’t think this palette has enough variety. I don’t reach for this palette as much as other ones. There’s a few of the shades that are too similar to each other. Because the shadows are so pigmented and almost creamy, I find that the mattes take more time to blend than eyeshadows from other brands. However, given some extra time, I can easily come up with a pretty look. Its nice quality, I just don’t think it’s worth the price tag. I much prefer the Lila palette. It find that it has more color and texture variety, also I much prefer the purple/taupe tones to these orange/ red tones. The Lila palette has a unique quality to it that this palette lacks in my opinion. I have to be in a fairly warm eyeshadow mood to reach for this palette.
I had zero intention of buying this palette. It wasn’t until I walked pass it at a Sephora and saw how vibrant but soft and blendable it was, that I changed my mind. None of the shades are duds, they’re all gorgeous and different in their own way. The creams are silky to the touch, it’s not sticky or patchy, but smooth and velvety. I instantly took notice to the pretty pink tones, the texture was too buttery to ignore. It’s so easy to work with and pair together. I love the color options and the blend ability. I’m super excited on making use of all the pretty shades. I was a skeptic proved wrong.
The large size is perfect for blending, and the tapered point is perfect for color placement in the crease. I love this brush’s versatility and use it almost every time I put on eyeshadow. It’s totally worth the price, highly recommend.
I purchased some samples before buying this foundation. So I don't have a shade that matches me perfectly. 123 might be the closest but its a tad too neutral, I prefer a more yellow and or olive undertone. 213 has the perfect olive undertone but its a shade too light for me. 143 is my shade in the summertime but too dark for winter. As a result, I went and bought two shades, 213 + 143 = my perfect shade.
For reference Im around nc25, nars punjab, estee lauder 2w2 rattan in winter and around nc30+ during summer. I typically stay around the light-medium color range. Im asian, I like foundations that match my yellow body. My skin is this winter has been dehydrated, dry, and combination. During the summertime I tend to be a grease ball.
Ive been reaching for this foundation when my skin is dry and I know a matte foundation would be too dehydrating. The finish is soft and moisturizing. once applied it can look a little thick, and you can see it sitting on top of your skin like a bb cream. Its not heavy but its not lightweight either. It reminds me a lot of the giorgio armani luminous silk, however, the Giorgio Armani is more smoothing. My face is more smooth and blurred with the GA foundation.
I think its a nice everyday foundation but I don't like wearing it for special events.
PROS: doesn't irritate dry or inflamed skin, doesn't eventuate dry patches, kind to dry skin, blends well CONS: not good for days when my skin is textured and flushed. Doesn't have high coverage, does not smooth texture, doesnt help with pores. Can appear cakey if I apply too much
Im deducting one star for its color range, and one star for its performance.
