Back when I first started blogging, almost five years ago, there was one major makeup brush brand which everyone raved about and that was Sigma. They were the equivalent of Morphe with YouTubers pushing affiliate codes left, right and centre but they appear to have gone pretty quiet over the last couple of years but they’ve still been releasing products. Sigma are best known for their luxurious makeup brushes, but they also have a great range of makeup products too. I’ve featured a selection of the Sigma Beauty Lip Vexes over the years, but apart from the glosses, I’d not tried anything else until I got my hands on their newest launch; the Sigma Beauty Wildflower Eye and Cheek Palette £27.95 which is being stocked by Beauty Chamber here in the UK.
Sigma Beauty Wildflower Eye and Cheek Palette
The Wildflower Eye and Cheek Palette contains four powder eyeshadows, a powder highlighter and a powder blush, all of which can be layered over eachother to create different effects and finishes. The packaging is ever so pretty considering it’s a cardboard palette with a cardboard sleeve. The card exterior feels robust enough for travel, and it’s light and compact too. Both the sleeve and palette itself are adorned with the prettiest watercolour floral painting which is so unlike any other palette I’ve seen. Inside the lid there’s a mirror which overlooks the six powders, and the pans are all nicely laid out with plenty of space between each pan.
For the eyeshadows there are four matte shades and one shimmer. First up we have 10 which is a cool taupe shimmer, Austere which is an opaque milky matte peach, Apricot Flower – a pastel matte tangerine as well as Elderberry which is a deep, smokey matte purple. Seeing as I never hear or read anyone talking about the Sigma Eyeshadow Palettes, I didn’t really know what to expect for the eyeshadow formula but I am so, so impressed. I love a good taupe eyeshadow, especially if it’s a shimmer so 10 couldn’t be more perfect as it’s multidimensional, pigmented and packed with shimmer. Austere looks a little unassuming amongst the other shades but it works nicely as a base shadow for absolutely any eye makeup looks, as a shadow to set your eyeshadow primer. Apricot Flower is so on trend right now as it’s a beautiful, muted warm orange whilst Elderberry is extremely intense for building intensity within your makeup look.
The highlighter shade; Peaceful is a sheer pearly pink shade, whilst Peony the blusher is a deep matte rose. The formula of the two cheek powders is on par with the eyeshadows in that they’re finely milled, soft and easy to blend. I think Peaceful is such a pretty highlighter shade for those with super pale to light toned skin as it’s so reflective and light in tone, and it works well layered over the four shadows if you use your fingertip or a dampened brush.
I think this palette would make a great addition to any makeup collection, especially those that like an eye and cheek all in one palette as it has you covered for shadow, possibly liner when using Elderberry, highlight and blush. I really hope my swatches do the palette justice, as it’s truly beautiful inside and out and you can purchase it directly from Beauty Chamber without any worries of customs fees or lengthy delivery times.
I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of the Sigma makeup range yet?
