I have two Viseart eyeshadow palettes, one a full sized Palette and one a small travel sized one and I absolutely adore the formulas in both. While the full sized palette it in a hard plastic palette, the travel palette has the same fold up packaging as the bronzer and in my opinion just looks a little bit extra special.
Since I have the Viseart eyeshadow Palettes, I tend to think of Viseart as an eyeshadow brand, much the same was as I think of Bite Beauty as a Lip Product brand. But this week I was just all about getting out of my brand comfort levels. I tried a Bite Beauty Foundation and Viseart Bronzer.
Because the Viseart shadows are very pigmented, I was expecting the same thing from the Bronzer. I was expecting one sweep of the brush to add a thick dark line of product to my cheeks that needed to then be blended out. I found this was not the case. As you can see from the photos, one sweep of the brush left a light line across the skin. (I used the inside of my arm so it is easier to see. The second swatch has a couple of swipes of the brush so you can see that it is buildable.
It just isn’t highly pigmented. For me this meant it was a lot easier to control how dramatically i wanted to bronze my cheekbones. I would much rather build up to the level I want rather than put on a lot of pigment and then have to blend it out. I also tend not to lean into dramatic bronzing during my everyday looks. Most of my makeup looks are the sorts of looks that you would wear to the office rather than a club. Or these days on a video conference call I suppose.
I will say that once in place, the bronzer didn’t really fade that much throughout the day. It remained pretty much how I put it onto my face until it was time for me to take my makeup off for the day. I didn’t have to worry about looking washed out mid day.
I did have to change the brush I used to apply it thought. Tyupically I use an angled and slightly fluffy brush for my bronzer. With this bronze Noix from Viseart I ended up reaching for the Flat Powder Brush from Laruce beauty (LR375) I found the flat edge and denser bristles much easier to use with this bronzer. Even though I think this is a travel pan for the brand, the pan is a really good size. The packaging I like so much also allows the packaging to create the space for what is a full sized pan in a travel sized package.
I really enjoyed this bronzer and I can see it being one that I reach for a lot in the up coming months. I suspect that even with it’s buildability it won’t be one I can use in the summer when I am tanned, but it is perfect for winter wear (when some of my more pigmented bronzers are far to deep in tone for me to wear now). It will just require the use of a brush with densely packed bristles to get the best out of this bronzer.
The big problem I found was was that I could not find this product on the Viseart site. I spent a lot of time looking actually. I found several eyeshadow quads that I really want to purchase but the only bronzer I managed to find was in their FACE section. It is part of a bronze and contour palette. I actually have an e-mail into the brand to see if I can get more information, but as of yet I haven’t heard back. If and when I do I’ll post an update but for now all of the links go back to that face page. with luck this Bronze Noix is still available somewhere as I know once I work my way through the pan,. I am going to want to repurchase.
