• Sigma Dare eyeshadow palette

Hey dolls! How are you? I suggest you sit comfortable because this is going to be a long post! :D
So, Sigma has recently launched 3 eyeshadow palettes, named Dare, Bare and Flare. You can click the links to see the colours of each one. Each palette contains a different dual end Sigma brush, there are also photos of each brush in the website. Today, I'll show you the Dare palette. Let's begin! :D


 top: slide-up cardbox, bottom: the palette

- It comes in a slide-up cardbox with colours that match the palette's colours. Inside it is the palette, also with the same colours decorated.
- The palette is about 22.5x7.5x2.5 cm and is made of hard cardbox.
- A strong magnet holds it close. It won't open in your purse or suitcase but you can always use the slide up cardbox, just in case. :)
- The palette contains a 14x3.5 cm mirror, 8 eyeshadows and a dual end Sigma brush (yay!).
Every Sigma palette has a different brush, Dare has a E20-E45 brush.
E20 is a very short shader brush, perfect for application of eyeshadow along the lashline. E45 is a blending brush with a pointy end, perfect for the crease area.
- Each eye shadow has its name written, good job Sigma!
- Net weight is 0.43oz or 12 g.


 Ingredients are written on the back of the cardbox and the palette (click for larger image).

The actual product

swatches on arm, I've applied foundation underneath and used a brush

Surrender is a lovely eggplant purple, Grasp is a shimmery coral colour. Chase is a shimmery light pink colour and Escape is a shimmery light beige-grey, both are perfect for highlight. These 4 colours are very nice together and my fav ones, I've created an eye look with them and I'll show you in a minute. Reveal is shimmery, red toned brown and Catch is a matte red toned brown. I have to say that red toned brown is one of the colours that do not compliment me. I could never wear them alone but I can use them to warm up cool toned eye looks. Shout is a matte yellow. When I first saw it I was terrified. I still am but I've used it, you'll see the result below. Vanish is a shimmery gold colour, also good for highlight. All colours are shimmery, except Catch and Shout which are matte.

The eyeshadows are soft and not too powdery. As you can see in the swatches above, the pigmentation is better for darker shades and poor for the 3 lighter ones. The don't crease and stay on for many hours, especially if you use an eye primer.

None detected.

Eye looks
I know that the photos are still not good but I'm practising, changing cameras, angles etc. Please bear with me.

Shout on the lid, Vanish on the inner corner, Surrender along the lower lashliner and the upper a little, Reveal in the crease, Escape on the browbone. Half false eyelashes on.
Chase on the inner corner, Grasp on the lid, Surrender on the crease and the outer half of lower lashline, Escape on the browbone. Half false lashes on.

Last but not least
Sigma is against animal testing, you can see the rabbit sign on the back of the palette and cardbox. You can also see there that the product is designed and assembled in USA and made in China.

Summary: 4/5
I love the packaging and fact that the included brush is good quality, not many palettes offer that. I also love 4 out of the 8 colours and I'll use another 2 of them sometimes. Catch and Shout are the two colours I don't think I'll be using a lot but then again, having 2 crazy colours makes the palette more interesting! I'd like more pigmentation for the shadows though.

Where can you find it-Cost
- Sigma website
- $35.00

Many of you have requested this review, I hope you like it :D If you have any questions don't hesitate!
Do you own any Sigma palettes? Thinking about getting one? I'd love to buy Flare, it has many beautiful colours. Bare is a more neutral one, I guess it'd be perfect for women that prefer a bold lip look.

  1. Woww the palette looks fab <3 Love the eye makeup!!!!!!

  2. I dont own any but i certainly would love to try one . I think the thing that is quite off putting is the packaging is not as attractive as it could be and some of the colors . However sigma has a great name for the fabulous quality and i would love to test this out !!
    kisses xo

  14. @makeupbymarias: Δεν την έχω δοκιμάσει τη naked οπότε δεν μπορώ να κάνω σύγκριση... Έχει βέβαια περισσότερα χρώματα αλλά η Κερασία λέει ότι αυτή είναι καλύτερη. Μπέρδεμα, δεν μπορώ να διαλέξω!

    @Natasa makeup-nails: κι εσύ, ε; Τώρα που το σκέφτομαι έχει και η Too Faced μια αντίστοιχη με επίσης τέλεια χρωματάκια (και συσκευασία!). Τώρα σας αποτελείωσα, ε; :D
