I have had the Sigma Paris Palette in my collection for a few months now. I saw Sigma tweet that it’s on sale today and I remembered that I never shared swatches and my thoughts.
The Paris Palette was my first taste of Sigma’s eyeshadow palettes. It contains some gorgeous bright shades and the E55 – Eye Shading and F40 – Large Angled Contour brushes. The packaging is absolutely lovely too, very well presented. The palette itself is made of stiff cardboard, it’s fairly durable considering. There is also a mirror in the lid – I never understand when brands leave a mirror out of a palette, hello Still Light As Air!
As a little side note, this palette was developed with YouTube make-up guru’s who selected the shades inspired by Paris. You will find tonnes of tutorials using the palette on YouTube if you fancy a browse.
The two brushes in palette, E55 and F40…
Seine – Satin navy blue. Developed collaboratively by all gurus involved in the project.
Louve – Matte saturated teal. Developed by Josh aka Petrilude.
Orsay – Matte meduim green with gold flecks. Developed by Suzy aka MacNC40.
Elysées – Satin plummy brown. Developed by Dulce aka DulceCandy87.
Notre Dame – Metallic taupe. Developed by Christine aka xteeener.
Triomphe – Reddened brown with green duochrome. Developed by Jen aka frmheadtotoe (that’s me!).
Versailles – White-gold with gold flecks. Developed by Leesha aka xsparkage.
These 4 shades are my favourite – they work better with my colouring and are very wearable. The next four are for a more cheery day. Admittedly I’m a fan of neutrals but I have dabbled with Seine and Louvre as eyeliner and also as a second crease colour with other neutral shadows. Of course if you’re a fan of colour than these will be right up your alley.
Both are lovely. The highlighter (far right) is a shimmery, warm toned shade. The plum and peach toned blushes are both easy to wear. I swatches them with my finger for this pic so remember that will be more sheer when applied with a blush.
All in all this is a nice palette. I have picked up far too many neutral toned palettes over the past year so it’s nice to see a bit of colour. The pay-off is also good as you can see and the addition of two brushes really make the set good value.
The palette is on sale today for $49 (€36) today which is $10 off the usual price Link! This palette is limited edition.
Do you have this palette? Have you tried any of Sigma’s other palettes?
