I Bought This, Affiliate Link
As usual, Sephora posted a sale on some Viseart palettes a couple of weeks ago, and I couldn’t resist a good sale on this fabulous French brand of professional eye shadows. It was 50% off the regular price of $45, and I had $10 in Sephora dollars to use. The little 6 pan Theory VII “Siren” eyeshadow palette cost me $12. They also had free shipping at the time. Money well spent, I believe. The sale is still going on at Sephora, so if it speaks to you, you can buy it on sale, too. There are two other small Viseart palettes on sale as well. ADDENDUM: VISEART Paris is having a sale on the viseartparis.com website from July 2-5 with up to 40% off various products. The cute 4 pan palettes in several color ways, Petits Fours, are on sale for $15.40, and there are a number of other larger palettes on sale too. Check it out!
The pans are removable, in case you want to create your own palette of faves. The cute folding packaging can be made into an easel. Though this is my second or third palette from Viseart of this type, I still haven’t figured out how to do it or why I would want to unless it would be to use the handy mirror.
Since I got it, I have used this peachy palette three times. Peach shades are my favorites for summer. Eyeshadow from Viseart seldom disappoints. It is pigmented, smooth, rich, long wearing, and it blends like a dream. Plus, it’s purse size and portable if I need to take it anywhere.
Theory Siren has 3 matte and 3 shimmer shadows, though the shimmer is really a rich satin glow rather than anything sparkly. All the shades including the gold shimmer have peach in them.
Viseart describes this palettes as a “fiery sunset”, and I agree. Here are the pan names and my descriptions. I put them in order of the columns, e.g. mattes first and the shimmers second, whereas Viseart went across the rows:
- Petal Pink (1): pale pinky-peach matte (looks like the NARS Orgasm shade)
- Peony Pink (3): deeper pinky-peach matte
- Terracotta (5): matte copper-peach
- Rose Gold (2): deep rose gold shimmer
- Burnt Gold (4): gold shimmer with a touch of peach
- Burnished Copper (6): copper shimmer.
Here are the swatches over what was left in my tube of Urban Decay Anti-aging Primer Potion in outdoor light and in sunlight.
I was supposed to go out for dinner this evening with a friend, but a big, long lasting thunderstorm spoiled our plans. Although I was hearing the siren song of this lovely Viseart shadow palette, I’ll have to wait for another occasion to wear Viseart Theory Siren again.
