I purchased the Viseart Petit Pro Palette 2 at the beginning of March and I’ve been using it pretty consistently ever since. In fact, I’ve been using it almost DAILY. So, I can safely say I am ready to share my thoughts on this palette with you today. The Viseart Petit Pro Palette 2 is a combination of matte and shimmer shades. It claims to be both versatile and pigment-rich. The Viseart Petit Pro Palette 2 is a pink-centric palette that is perfect for spring!
The first thing I noticed about the Viseart Petit Pro Palette 2 is that it is TINY. However, Viseart is a pretty high end brand, so I wasn’t surprised by any means. A Viseart Palette that only costs $39 CAD is going to be on the smaller end of the palette spectrum. However, due to it’s size, I think it would be fantastic for travel.
The palette itself has cardboard packaging, however the magnetic enclosure keeps it from feeling cheap. The palette almost unfolds, both the top and the bottom of the opening that you can see in the photo above open up to reveal the palette inside.
As you can see, the Viseart Petit Pro Palette 2 is a primarily pink palette. It’s a nice way to dive into the warm eyeshadow trend for those who are uncomfortable with red or orange toned eye shadows. I primarily create soft and feminine eye shadow looks using this palette, but I’ve done a few more dramatic ones using the purple matte shade more predominantly. I like the set up of this palette where the matte shades are on the top and the shimmer shades are on the bottom.
The matte eye shadows don’t swatch that well but I find they work better patted into the lid rather than dragged (as I learned from other reviews). I do my initial sweep of the transition shade in the typical windshield wiper fashion and then pat the same shade a little bit lower to add pigmentation. They are quite pigmented when patted onto the eye. The shimmers are super pigmented and apply well both with a shader brush or with your finger, depending on how intense you would like the pigmentation. I’ve used every shade in this palette multiple times and I don’t have any issues with any of them. The mattes did take some getting used to, but they work!
The shades don’t have names (big pet peeve of mine!) but I used the first shade in the top row as my transition, with the second shadow in the top row in the crease, in the outer-v and under my eye and then the first shade in the bottom row all over the lid. I also did blend a little bit of the first shade in the top row into my under eye to blend out the darker pink shade.
Overall, I do really enjoy this palette, in fact, it was one of my March Favourites! However, I don’t know if it has convinced me that I need more Viseart Palettes in my life. The Viseart Petit Pro Palette 2 is gorgeous and works quite well and I like it enough to use it nearly daily. However, I just don’t know if it is worth the price tag. Eye shadows have come a long way and you can get equally beautiful eye shadows for less. I’ve seen a few comments on my blog and instagram asking me about this palette and I’m just so conflicted. I love it and it’s a favourite but I don’t love the price. I think I just expected the eye shadow to literally knock my socks off at that price point.
