The Muse is a bit tired of all the holiday coverage! It’s the end of the week and she isn’t really up for doing more holiday collections and just feels like concentrating on the lovely Fall weather and maybe a Fall collection too!
How about you?
I’ve had the Visee Fall Collection for a while now but haven’t had a chance to take advantage of it but this week I decided to crack open both and give them a whirl. The new Glam Hunt Palettes are quite different from previous releases from Visee but have no fear they are just as good. I was playing at being a good Muse so I only ordered two of the five color combinations released.
I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the Visee Glam Hunt Palettes as I do have a love affair with the Visee Jewel Crush Eyes Palettes and as I mentioned these are vastly different. Although the Glam Hunt Palettes contain some shimmer it’s not a whole lot when compared to previous palette releases from Visee.
The Glam Hunt Palettes have five strips of color that you’ll be using on various parts of your eye. I always find it interesting that the directions for application instruct you to use the lightest shade of shadow on the crease instead of the lid. I normally contrast my shades of shadow by applying a darker shade to the crease and a lighter shade to my lid however most Japanese brands recommend contrasting them in the opposite way!
The shades included in the palettes are two contrasting shades of eyeshadow, one liner shade, one base shade, and a sparkling powder which can be used in the inner corner of the eye to add a bit of sparkle and shine to your look! The palettes I got were G1 and G4. G1 consists of green shades which are comparable to my favorite KATE Glamtrick Eye Palette GN-1 and the G4 palette contains dusky rose shades. Out of the two palettes G1 was my favorite simply because I really adore how a smoked out green eyeshadow look makes my eyes sizzle! The G4 is very nice as well but I thought the liner shade made my eyes look slightly tired.
The shadows are all quite pigmented and blend wonderfully well. I thought the formula and texture was comparable to KATE palettes. As I mentioned above these are considerably different from the palettes you’ve seen Visee release before and I’m hoping they’ll actually continue with the line as it’s quite good.
All in all I thought the Visee Glam Hunt palettes were quite nice with a good selection of Fall friendly colors. I’m not Muse Approving for them purchase simply because they are quite similiar to many Japanese brand palettes you might already own! If you don’t have a considerable stash of Japanese palettes I do recommend trying these out as they are quite lovely!
