Sigma Paris Palette Review & Swatches!

Hi My Loves!!!

As you guys probably know I took the week off for Mother's Day (it was lovely.. I got some projects done that I had been wanting to do).... I hope you all had an amazing day too :)

Anyway, I bought the new Sigma Paris Palette Limited Edition and used it a few times this week and thought I would share what I thought about it ;) 

It is a little pricey at $59.00 but it is a limited edition so I'm assuming that's why. It comes with 2 brushes (actually 2 of my favorites) the E55 and the F40. It also has 8 eyeshadows and 3 good size blushes.

They also send you a free gift if you spend over $30... it used to be a brush but now they give youa lovely little eyeshadow :)

I think the packaging is so cute!

Free eyeshadow which is Grasp.. a beautiful peach.


F40 (my favorite brush to apply my bronzer/contour)
E55 (my favorite brush to apply my browbone eyeshadow and lid shadow)


From Top to Bottom Right:
Eiffel, Seine, Louvre, Orsay, Elysees, Notre Dame

Top to Bottom Left:
Triomphe (my fave)
Versailles (my second fave)

I feel like the Louvre was a tad chalky but over a cream shadow I think it would build up really nicely. I absolutely love Triomphe, Versailles & Notre Dame.

For the most part they are all nicely pigmented and apply and blend very easily.


From Left to Right:
Rouge, Peche & Lumiere

The Rouge is a slight bit too mauve for me but I LOVE the Peche. It's a beautiful color for all different skin types. I feel like you could really build it up if you are slightly darker and if you are fair it will be perfect too :) The lumiere is more of a highlight with a soft pinky toned base. It has a soft shimmer and looks beautiful over the peche on the highest point of the cheekbone and on the apples of the cheeks.

All in all I would say this is a great palette. I am actually so happy that Sigma finally put some blushes into a palette because as you all know, I love me some blush :) It has my 2 favorite brushes, a nice selection of shades for shadow and comes in super cute packaging. Plus it has a good size mirror. I am definitely happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone who loves a luscious makeup palette. I only wish the rouge was a more pinky based rather than mauve but hey that's just me ;)

Hope this helps your decision!!

Thanks for reading!

Happy Monday :)
