Viseart Neutral Mattes Milieu Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Neutral Mattes Milieu

Viseart Neutral Mattes Milieu Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a new, permanent palette designed to be the follow-up to the brand’s original Neutral Mattes palette. It contains twelve shades with all being new except for Penombre (the deep blue). There are four shades that are considered Pressed Pigments (containing Red 7 or Red 28), and they are: Groseille, Cacao, Dahlia, and Baie. For those looking for slightly deeper, richer neutrals that lean a bit redder, I think this palette is in that vein. It’s much cooler and deeper, less orange, compared to Warm Mattes and much richer and richer and redder-leaning than the original Neutral Mattes. The color story seems most similar to the deeper side of the Grande Pro (Vol. 1) palette.

The majority of the shades were pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to use, though a few were a little dusty, powdery, or could have been more blendable–there were no real duds or major misses.

NOTICE for the following shades: Groseille, Cacao, Dahlia, Baie.  All products categorized under “Pigment” carry a warning in the US that the product is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” Brands in the US typically market these products as “Pigments” (instead of “Eyeshadow”), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. Some color additives in “Pigments” have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions: FDA/CosIng.

Chiffon

Chiffon is a deeper, peachy orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that had a little bit of fallout, which was especially noticeable when I used it above my lid. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee is a deep, mustard yellow with warm, brown undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had excellent color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and easy to work with. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Roussillon

Roussillon is a muted, medium-dark copper with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, while the texture was soft, a smidgen dusty in the pan (but not problematic on the lid), and easy to blend out on my skin. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Platane

Platane is a soft, peachy brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in one pass, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was lightly powdery and had some fallout during application. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Latte

Latte is a medium brown with muted, warmer golden undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan. It had rich pigmentation that wore well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Sorrel

Sorrel is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had full color coverage in one pass, though the texture seemed a bit more prone to adhering more strongly in certain places, so I would recommend using it with a primer to avoid potential issues. I experienced it on my arm but couldn’t see it translate onto my lid (but it’s an issue of moisture/natural oils on my lid vs. arm). The texture seemed, otherwise, to be soft and blendable without being too powdery. It stayed on well eight hours on me before it started to fade a bit.

Groseille

Groseille is a deep red with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, which applied evenly and blended out nicely along the edges over bare skin. The texture was soft, smooth, and a smidgen dusty in the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout during application. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before starting to fade a bit.

Nue

Nue is a medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly powdery in the pan, so there was light fallout during application if I wasn’t careful to tap off excess. It had opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Cacao

Cacao is a deep brown with cooler undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that was a bit more substantial than most Viseart matte eyeshadows, but it applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. I had no trouble diffusing the edges while maintaining the opacity I wanted. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Dahlia

Dahlia is a rich, pinky berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it didn’t seem to be prone to fallout during application. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with a second layer. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading and left a very faint stain behind.

Baie

Baie is a muted, medium-dark burgundy with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was blendable and easy to work with as it had almost no fallout during application. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Penombre (Cobalt Blue)

Penombre (Cobalt Blue) is a deep, navy blue with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had ultra-fine shimmer throughout, but it looked matte to my eye on my skin. The texture was firmer, a little stiffer, and as a result, did seem to be harder to blend out on my skin so I’d recommend using a light hand and building up or using it over an eyeshadow primer. It stayed on well eight and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.
