Viseart Theory Palettes: Nuance, Amethyst, Enamored & Ablaze Review and Swatches

Viseart is on a fire with their newly released Theory Palette additions! Not only did they release two new eyeshadow palettes, Nuance and Amethyst to add to their collection, TWO new Theory Cheek palettes in  Enamored and Ablaze also make their debut, offering a well coordinated trio that consists of a blush, highlighter and bronzer. If you are unfamiliar with the brand, Viseart is a Parisian makeup brand that traces its beginnings to French Television and film. They are a high-performance line with formulas that harness the best of natural and organic resources with modern technology. The brand was conceived out of a shared passion for healthy products that go back to the roots of beauty, to naturally enhance the skin rather than aging the skin with harmful chemicals. You will be happy to hear that these products are not tested on animals, contain organic ingredients, and they are free of silicone, petrochemicals, and mineral oil. All products are individually hand made in Paris, making them very Parisian chic in every sense of the word. I am a huge fan of their products; you can find my previous reviews here, here, and here. Today I am happy to share images and swatches of my new Viseart Theory Palette additions in Nuance, Amethyst, Enamored and Ablaze.

Morphe Brushes Copper Spice Eyeshadow Palette Photos and Swatches

Morphe Brushes is a brand that I became acquainted with through my purchase of the limited edition and hugely popular Jaclyn Hill palette. I can recall how fast the palette sold out online and how covetable it was. I have been a fan of their brand since. They have an impressive assortment of both brushes and makeup that are of great quality at a very affordable price point. Their latest launch, the Limited Edition Morphe Copper Spice & Bronzed Mocha palettes has become another huge hit. It sold out quickly online the day of its launch, but stay tuned! According to the brand, a restock will take place due to popular demand. I decided to make a trip to the store since I was not able to purchase it online. Today I will be sharing photos, swatches and my first impressions of the Copper Spice or 25A palette.
